Well I was reading along feeling a lot of pride in the responses (and a bit of humour with some of them) and along comes RyanB to spoil it all.
As a parent and a mother of a teenage girl I praise ALL of you who buy condoms, embarrassed or not. I know teenage kids are going to have sex, nothing a parent says will stop that (well, unless they are a pharmasist)
, so from all the parents of teenage girls I think you for your responsibility.
As for you RyanB, what a stupid attitude to have and why would you be passing that onto kids for? I ask that you ALL ignore his stupidity. Yes, the condoms reduce the feeling whilst having sex and yes, if you are in a steady and committed relationship where you KNOW both partners are monogomous and free of disease then the pill (or new contraceptive types which include something that they inject under the skin and lasts for three years) is a fantastic idea for those who choose not to breed (because the pill is quite unreliable particularly in the forgetful).
But for the rest of you ... until you get to the committed relationship and breeding phase, please please PLEASE .. stick with the condoms and ignore the advice of idiots who put their sexual pleasure in front of their/their partners health.
I can't beleive someone would be so irresponsible as passing on that piece of advice to kids!
