Is it better to use a condom and lube or a latex glove and lube. I know not to use both at the same time but which one is safer?

Well I would say to use a condom and lube. Just so when you are ready to ejaculate that it goes in the condom.

Usually for women when you perform manuel sex (fingering) you would use the latex glove and lube.

Hope that helped.

The choice of safer sex tool depends on the situation you're using it for.

Here's a list of when to use what, from our article on safer sex:

When to Use What:

Penis-in-vagina intercourse: Condom and lubricant

Anal Intercourse: Condom and lubricant (ALWAYS use a new condom if switching between vaginal and anal intercourse)

Fellatio ( "giving head" or "blow job"): Flavored condom or unlubricated condom with flavored lube (latex by itself can taste kinda yucky). Latex gloves if combined with manual sex.

Manual sex ("fingering", or "hand job"): Latex gloves, lubricant

Cunnilingus ("going down" or "eating out"): Dental dam or saran wrap barrier, lubricant.

Analingus (or "rimming"): Dental dam or saran wrap barrier
