Honestly, I prefer sex with a thin condom. It does feel different without, but I am uncircumcised and the tip of my penis is very sensitive, with a fragile frenulum. I was in a stable relationship where I got out of the habit of wearing one long term monogamous, she on birth control, I pulled out and I WAY prefer that.
Bareback sex is fricking awesome. That too can be awesome. Mother Nature did a real fine job making bareback sex awesome.. Ah, always a but. But she also invented STDs, and babies. You can make condoms suck less by choosing the right size, and doing the lube trick.
But condoms will never, ever, ever.. Two different kinds of guys. Guys that get off from constriction, and guys that get off from friction.
It also adds a level of intimacy being unprotected. Plus, cumming inside her is incredibly sexy. I prefer a condom for several reasons. Honestly, the comfort in knowing I had added protection was equally as fun as the thought of cumming inside of my gf now wife.
I liked both just as much. Sex is fucking fun…what can I say? Sex has been shown to feel much better not only for men but for women without condoms. The direct contact makes for a better feeling for many and more so at the end semen causes a chemical reaction in women that tends to cause a more satisfying or even elevated experience. In many years I know I have had less sensation or even failure to climax while using one.
She had gotten sick and the medication she was put on nullified her birth control. That went on for about a month, because of the meds and the wait to get back on birth control. That fist night back to sex without one set that idea in concrete. I was in full agreement, that was a long, long, night.
There is a feeling loss that can happen for both sides. More so is the chemical reaction for women. Where men are more of the feeling that occurs, women miss out more on a chemical release in their bodies. Sperm has been shown to cause a release of chemical such as endorphins, estrone, prolactin, oxytocin, thyrotropin-releasing hormone, and serotonin, which can cause higher senses of pleasure and also connectivity with your partner.
The lack of the chemicals being released can make your brain associate a loss of pleasure, as well as it can affect your sex drive and even cause depression, same as quitting most drugs or chemicals would do to you. Plenty of people do feel this way. When you have the opportunity to test it though, then you will better know how accurate these things pertain to you.
