Receptive condoms for male-to-male sex

May 27, 2011

Dear Doc.,

I am considering using the receptive condom (aka female condom). Is it safe for male-to-male sex? Does it hold up during long, vigorous, anal sex for the receptive partner? Is seems like the penis could accidentally be inserted outside of the condom if one is not extremely careful.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Female condoms (FCs) for men having anal sex with men are indeed an option and in fact some guys have been using them successfully for quite some time. Yes, they are durable even for jackhammer top guys on megadoses of Cialis. However, you are correct: FCs can be somewhat tricky to use and yes, you have to be careful not to have the throbbing tallywhacker miss the target. If you try FCs, I'd recommend removing the "inner ring" before inserting the condom. I'll repost below a link to some previous posts discussion this option.

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
