Condom breaking? - help appreciated

Postby marriagewine » Fri Apr 11, 2014 7:41 am

Hi,

Does anyone know what could be the reason for condom breaking, while making love (PIV)? … This has happened to us already at least 3-4 times and with 2 different brands.

The only possible reason I can come up with is that there has been times, that I haven't pressed the tip of the condom, while inserting it, and there would have been some air inside of the condom. But at least the last time the condom broke, I'm quite sure I did squeeze the tip of the condom, while inserting it.

Has any other bumbed into this issue? I really would love to find out what's the reason behind this.

Thank you.

If you change positions a lot and allow the condom to dry out they can break. Found out the hard way.

Oil-based lube? Wrong size condom?

Oil based lube is the first thing that came to mind.

Can we get some detail?

Condon type?
What type of lube?
What position (stay generic with common names)

Any other info you think might be involved?

Hi,

Thanks for the comments!



As to your questions:

Condom type

One of the brands we have used has been Näkken, please see http://www.condomking.eu/rfsu-nakken for more information.

What type of lube?

We don't use lube.

What position (stay generic with common names)

Mainly only missionary and doggy.

Any other info you think might be involved?

I don't know. I am puzzled.

Wrong size condom?"

All the condoms we have used are of "regular size" (ie. no mention to the size of the condom in the package). As I have inserted it, it looks like "everything is ok".

"If you change positions a lot and allow the condom to dry out they can break. Found out the hard way."

Maybe this could be the reason? Typically we may change positions something at least half a dozen times / session. You think that is too much?



Thank you.

You might want to add a bit of lube as you change positions and see if that helps.

Lube would be a good thing to use. Friction with no lube can cause condoms to break.

Oh.

I've never heard lube as being an "integral" part of using condoms as means of contraception! : o

Most condoms come pre-lubed for this reason. It has a tendency to dry out if you are in the open air too much.

Check to make sure it's fitting properly. It should unroll all the way down your shaft and feel snug but not too tight. If it consistently leaves a red ring around your shaft it's too tight. We stopped using regular size condoms because they kept breaking.

The condom rolls all the way and I feel like it's suitably snug. I have not noticed a red ring around my shaft.

--

She says that I am big (as to my sex), but I feel that's a subjective view; personally I have never perceived myself 'big' in this matter. My wife is a really petite lady though.

--

As to LUBE:

We bought the lube (water-based). We bought condoms (with a subtitle "prolonged pleasure"). And we had sex with the condom with lube on it.

And the condom broke again! - like for the 7-8th time or something.

Thinking it might well be time to look at alternate forms of birth control. At least until you get the condons to stop breaking.

very strange.

we used to have condoms break because of my size. I've heard of condoms breaking because of lack of lube. Not sure what's going on here, though.
