How to increase sensations while wearing a condom

 HTHGS:  How to increase sensations while wearing a condom (written by Dr. Pluhar)

Ask Dr. Erika Pluhar,

My name is Scott and I have just started having sex.  When I insert my penis my girl friend starts moaning with pleasure, but I feel absolutely nothing.  I think it is the condom.  She take birth control pills every day, but still insists on using a condom because she heard that since her cervix is not fully developed, my bare penis could cause cervical cancer.  Is this true?  If so, when can I stop using the condom.  Is the condom too tight?  I find it very tight.  Should I choose a larger condom?  What can I do?  I want to have sex without the condom, but will it cause cervical cancer????

Thank you so much for your time.



Dear Scott,

Your girlfriend is prudent in being cautious about protecting you both against sexually transmitted infections.  Certain strains of one infection, in particular, the human papilloma virus, or HPV, can lead to pre-cancerous growth and cervical cancer.  To help increase sensation with a condom, you might try the following strategies:


1.  A polyurethane, or plastic, condom (brand name Avanti).  Some men report that this material transmits heat and sensation better than latex.  You can get these at any drugstore.


2.  A small drop of lubrication inside the condom before you put it on. This might help increase the movement and feeling on your penis.  However, too much might lead to condom slippage, so just try a little, go slow at first, and monitor the condom carefully.


3.  Several condom companies do make larger condoms.  For example, Trojan makes one that they market to the small percentage of men who have a penis that is too big for average condoms.  You might try this, but beware that larger condoms are more likely to slip off if they truly are too big for your penis. Hope this helps, Dr. Erika Pluhar

  Our Philosophy sex is like dancing, it changes every time. It depends on culture, atmosphere and mood. Sometimes it is done alone, with a partner or in a group. It can be fast and hard or slow and soft. Sex is a combination of non-verbal negotiation and verbal cues: a scream, a twitch of the toes, or a flush of the face. There is no one 'right' way to move, only what feels good to all those involved.
