Second-Generation Female Condoms Being Handed Out Free in Washington DC

Would You Use a Female Condom?

Contraception is about to be turned on its head. While men seek a male birth control pill that will help them prevent unwanted pregnancy, second generation female condoms now give women more control over their sexual health.

Thanks to a donation from the MAC AIDS Fund, $500,000 is being spent to distribute female condoms, which protect against STDs, throughout Washington DC, where three percent of residents live with HIV/AIDS. We're used to male condoms being distributed for free, but now DC women will find the female version in beauty salons, high schools, and drug stores.

While it might take some practice to figure out how to use a new form of contraception (check out these instructions for the female condom), would you give this condom a shot?

One this to take care of is that The female condom should not be used at the same time as a male condom because the friction between the two condoms may cause the condoms to break.

Considering they're less effective than male condoms, I wouldn't use them.

I might give it a go, and carry condoms for both sexes in my handbag were I unattached, but I think I'd just use it as a back up. I can just imagine it,"you don't want to wear a condom? That's ok I've got a sammich bag!" :laugh:

Could anyone imagine have sex with a certain partner for the first time, and whipping this baby out! Ha. They might just run away.

I agree with tlsgirl, that's how I am. Me and my boyfriend are both allergic to spermicide and after a certain amount of time I would dry out and the condoms would hurt so bad! We are crazy careful though.

' bought some to try several years ago.the brand name was Femidom. I wasn't comfortable with them. I felt that the chance of a lover going to the side of the condom in error was too high for starters. I also felt that I resembled a fancy shopping bag but I suppose I could have got used to that over time. Things may have changed but there were also issue's raised about reliability at the time.

Nah. I don't think I'd like the idea of having sexy with a sandwich bag up there. I'll stick with the pill, and male condoms although we don't use them anymore.

lol, skg, i actually laughed out loud at the sandwich bag comment. I don't think i'd use it because it seems a fairly long process, and incredibly unsexy. Condom application already has the chance to be awkward, but i cant imagine whipping that bad boy out to start stuffing it up there. It also has to be bigger, and in a more confining space. I would be too worried about it slipping, or moving around, or bunching and rubbing in strange ways when faced with all that friction and movement. I guess the big ring on the outside is good for extra non skin contact, but i dunno. I wouldn't give a definite until i tried it a few times, but i'm doubtful.
