Dear Ryan, Is using a lubricated or putting some oil before
sexual intercourse will have higher risk?
Response from Mr. Kull
Please read the previous response to Lubrication (lube): What kind should I use for sex?.
Use water-based, not oil-based, lubricant with latex condoms for disease prevention. Some recent information suggests that Nonoxynol-9 should not be used for STD prevention since it may cause irritation and increase the risk of transmission.
