The couple of times my boyfriend and I have gone without a condom, it was because using the condom kind of hurt for me plus it feels way better for us when it's skin on skin. He would make sure to pull out, though.

we've agreed not to have vaginal (or anal) intercourse for various reasons, so there's no pregnancy risk. we know we're both clean, so we see no need for STI protection.

Was drunk at a party and we didn't care :L
