Hold a Condom on With a Cockring

Having issues with condom slippage? Try using a stretchy cockring around the base of the condom to keep it on. I figured this one out on my own several years ago when I developed a latex allergy and had to use polyurethane condoms.

This set of instructions leaves pleasure up to whoever is involved and assumes that you want to protect yourselves. There are no assumptions of what normal is and nor do I think the author even cares. Sex is fun and should be had for fun. Continue Reading →
