Condom ?

May 19, 2006

Hi Doctor Bob,

You're always quoting the "protected sex" is protected sex if a latex condom was used properly and did not fail. Can you be define that more specifically as far as "fail"?


Response from Dr. Frascino


Sure. Fail means pop, burst, tear, shred, rip, break, etc. Get the picture? If not, fill a condom with water until it expands greatly. Then hold it over your head and stick a pin in it. The condom will then fail (and you'll be soaked).

Dr. Bob
