Contrary to claims that the sale of condoms goes up during Valentine’s Day, it has emerged that women who are at the receiving end rather discourage their lovers from using.
According to reports, the women claim not only do condoms feel slippery and cold, but they remove a level of intimacy that comes from going bareback with your partner.
Dr. Baffour Poku of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in an interview on Adom News said he was surprised at the groundswell of complaint he received from women whose partners use condoms during sexual intercourse.
Some of the women told me using condoms feels like he’s wrapped his penis in plastic wrap. The sensation is not as pleasurable for me, and I find that my vagina aches more afterward.”
“Another woman also told me condoms feel less intimate. I love the way the smooth, hard penis skin feels against my skin, but I can’t feel that with a condom” he added.
These candid opinions of his patients, Dr. Baffour Poku noted is very worrying since unsafe sex is to blame for the high cases of ectopic pregnancies in the country.
He noted that a research conducted by the hospital also shows that, a lot of women report to the hospital with ectopic pregnancies and incomplete abortions a few weeks after Valentine’s Day celebrations.
Dr. Baffour Poku appealed to women to practice safe sex, especially on Vals Day to save their lives.
