condom breakage, leak, cost
May 1, 1997

Hi Dr. Joel My girlfriend is a Jewish American Princess. She insists I use a suede condom. Can a suede condom break or leak? And can I buy them at bulk discount?

Response from Dr. Gallant

Just as your girlfriend probably has a swimming suit that isn't supposed to get wet, the suede condom is strictly for show. It looks quite sporting at cockail parties, but latex is the only way to go once you get going.

(In other words, don't buy bulk. The suede ones are reusable!)

Should I use crixivan as preventive?
