do you change your condom after each orgasm?
Response from Dr. Frascino
Well that depends. Are you talking about my orgasms or my partner's?
Yes, I'd recommend changing after each of your orgasms. Often, there is what's called a refractory period during which the penis loses its erection and has to rest a bit before getting back to doing what it does best. And if the penis gets soft, the condom can slip off, especially if it's half full of spunk.
Now if you were talking about your multi-orgasmic partners, no, you don't need to change your rubber every time he or she lets loose with a full-throated, ferociously committed scream of "Oh My God, I'm Coming, I'm Coming, I'M COMING!"
Are we clear on that now, boys and girls?
