Will Gay Men Use Condoms More Often If They Come (Extra) Pre-Lubed?

Regular condoms sold in stores just aren’t doing it for the gays, AIDS researchers in India found. So they’re set to debut a condom just for gays. The big difference? More lube.

Family Planning Promotion Trust, an Indian condom manufacturer, and the state’s National AIDS Control Organisation are teaming up to create a condom made specifically for gays after learning one of the main reasons gay men might eschew condoms is because “most condoms are suited for vaginal and not anal sex.”

My own personal experience with condoms says that’s true! (You’re about to find out some personal information, read on!)

When I slept with women, only one required any lubricant at all. But I’ve used lube with almost every guy I’ve had anal sex with. Why? Because it’s harder to put it in, of course. Would a condom with extra lube built in make things easier? Perhaps, but I already hate condoms that are so sticky out of the wrapper that I need to wipe my hands off after putting it on. I’d rather douse the thing in some Wet Platinum after it’s unrolled.

But part of India’s new condom initiative will be its marketing campaign, specifically targeted to The Gays, which itself will be a campaign to encourage condom usage. The new super-lubed condom will be called Spice Up. I suggest they sign the Old Spice guy to pitch it. I’d buy one of these condoms just to sleep with him.

    I thought one just used ‘extra strong’ condoms. Also, isn’t (manually) lubing up part of the fun?

  • Qjersey

    Lifestyles (I think) used to have an “extra lube” condom. A good ass munching and one of those and it was go time.

    I keep teling guys: USE FEMALE CONDOMS!

    The “female” condom was actually invented for gay men, but the manufacturer couldn’t get permission from the FDA to market them as anal sex condoms. Instead they were marketed as female condoms.

    Homophobia kept the bottom comdom away from gay men.

    Jeez, just buy some lube on the side. You’re probably going to need more of it during sex.

  • REVEMUPMAN

    Come on the more lube the better. Just by some KY, you can never have enough lube.

    More pre-packed lube will just mean more mess. If you are going to cover-up, it’s easier to do it with a separate bottle. I don’t think I would be more inclined to use condoms either way– I just don’t like them, and don’t find sex with them to be worth it. I have had wonderful times cuddling and just foreplay– but when I feel like the real thing, I want the real thing.

    Waste of money and time. No extra lubed condom will be enough for anal sex. I never found a condom that had the right type or amount of lubricant for anal. You always need to use EXTRA lube that was specifically designed for anal sex. There is only so much that condom manufacturers can pack into a small condom.

    Men need to grow the fuck up and realize that slight inconvenience on their behalf later results in life long devastating STDs and billions of dollars of world funds to research AIDS and other STDs when best solution is simple prevention.

    Condom
    Lube
    Towel
    Should be part of every gay man’s philosophy when having sex. It’s safe and clean.
