Have You Ever Used a Female Condom?

Condoms may not be the sexiest thing, but when compared to the sexually transmitted illnesses they protect against, they seem infinitely cooler. There are choices to be had in the wide world of condoms — there are his and her models available. While the female condom may not be quite as effective as the male versions (female condoms are 75 to 80 percent effective and male condoms are 85 percent effective), the female version gives the ladies more control in the birth-control department. I am curious about you . . .

My husband loves them, but I am not a fan of insertion or removal.

ick. I can't see how it makes any difference to the woman over condoms. Putting one in is probably even more unsexy than regular condoms! Whoever thought, instead of putting a stretchy thing over something, we'll put a baggy thing in a stretchy thing... (if you get what i mean). Ick, having sex with a plastic bag... no thanks! i can't see it feeling AT ALL right :S ick sums it up quite well for me.

I'm married and on birth control, so condoms aren't really a thing I buy. Those look kind of scary, actually.

I'm scared to death of those things. Maybe the inserting part with it and cost. It's more expansive than just regular condoms (where I live). Condoms are easier to find cheaper or free and different there's always Plan B.

omg, one of my famous family stories involves this (not what you think!). I developed breasts very young, so my mom bought me all sorts of "what is happening to my body" and puberty-related books, and said "if you ever have any questions you can always talk to me." a few weeks later, mind you I'm like, 11 or 12 years old, I walk in my mom's room and ask, "Mommy, how does the female condom work?" her physical reaction is the best part of this story which sadly does not translate online :)
