  • Unless he is pumping away like a jackhammer the whole time, then yes, there is a difference in feeling. I can't attest that this is the same for a woman but for a man it is certainly true. The condom makes one more 'aero-dynamic'. We feel less friction against the ridge of the head. This is a factor as to why many guys claim to last longer while wearing a condom. Regardless of feel though, as several others have suggested...unless you are sure you won't catch anything and you won't get pregnant (can you ever be sure?), wear a condom. Also, why are you still having sex in a car?

  • I don't have the words to describe how wonderful a vagina feels. The difference between being in a vagina while wearing a condom and being in a vagina without a condom is like you trying to rub and excite your clitoris while wearing a surgical glove. You can eventually reach orgasm but it isn't as satisfying as skin to skin.

  • You know there's all sorts of biochemical exchanges that can happen during sex, but none of that works when there's latex in the way. The best possible sexual encounters will never involve condoms, let's put it that way. Anything so clever as to thwart nature always comes at a high cost.

  • a guy would definitely feel more without one than with one. you might not because ur a girl. it probably feels a lot alike. but trust me, guys can tell a huge difference.

  • Yeah me and my girlfriend tried condoms and have them for when she's on her period but we rarely use them other wise, sex is more of a chore with a condom.

    • Whats so "chore" about it lol...i totally agree with you condoms and my fiance were together for 4 years before I got pregnant, before that nothing....but now we have our daughter and there is not way I am not gonna use a condom and risk having another child.

  • For me, it feels much better without one. I feel a lot more sensitive to touch when I don't have a condom on and it feels much smoother. It also feels a lot better to come inside her than into a condom.

  • I've never used condoms since being sexually active and have becum too used to the bareback feeling. Once you go bareback you never look back. The skin on skin sensations, feeling the warm, wet pussy is absolutely amazing. Your orgasms are far more intense without condoms too ;-)

    Oh I've always been tested first before sleeping with a partner for the first time and have never caught an STD either so there are safe ways to have unprotected sex :-)

  • Condoms suck, plain and simple. For guys the difference between condoms and...well, no condom, is like night and day. Those new ultra thin ones are better than the "regular" ones, but there's no substitute for skin-on-skin contact, not to mention nothing feels better than coming inside a girl. Bare also makes it so much more intimate. On the other hand, condoms do make guys last longer. If I'm with some girl I just met or have been dating for a few weeks, a month, or whatever is not considered "long-term," then I use condoms but if I'm in an exclusive, long-term relationship, no condoms. Then again, if the woman says I'm wearing a condom or we're not having sex, I'm wearing a condom :)

  • feels much better for me without . . . though girlfriend HAS commented about the fact that she likes that I can thrust harder and longer with a condom on. ;)

    but of course the MOST important thing is safety! less sensation is a fine trade off being safe and clean.

  • Most definitely feels better without a condom.

  • Most definitely feels better, main reasons being you get to feel her and not some latex pos. Plus no awkward fumbling for a condom.

    This isn't an endorsement to do so though. Think about the consequences. best advice I can give you if you're going to is get on some form of birth control, and have him withdraw just for good measure.

    • Latex pos, I like your style!

    • I would like to point out that my girlfriend can't get pregnant. her odds are roughly ".01%~ -1%" No joke.

  • For me, I think it's all psychological. I prefer not to use condoms but I am very sensitive so I don't physically notice a difference. Well, I do but a small one. I think mentally, I enjoy sex without a condom because I feel like there isn't a barrier between us. And I really like the thought of that.

    One of the men in my life used to always want to wear a condom. Always. He said he didn't notice a difference with or without one. So much so that he thought all guys who said there was a difference were lying just to not have to bother with one. Later, I realized it was that his penis was so sensitive that the condom helped him last a little longer. But with or without it, he felt a hell of a lot so it didn't matter much to him. He was still going to feel a lot with it on.

    So maybe you are really sensitive to where any sensation feels amazing.

    • I'm like your ex..except I still don't wear condoms, I just get off 3 or 4 times during our sessions :p

      I'm curious, was he uncircumsized? I am

    • Interestingly enough, he was! I've heard uncircumsized guys were more sensitive then circumcized guys. This maybe too personal but do you think that is because your head is covered so it isn't always rubbing up against things or because when you have sex the foreskin goes back and forth on the head?

  • well for me sex is a lot better without a condom but I am with a committed partner and no chance of pregnancy but you can feel more every detail of his **** with a condom you can't really feel where the head ends and shaft begins...I would never suggest sex without a condom unless your totally committed and have no doubt that he is and both are STD free and no chance of a unwanted pregnancy because 20 mins of a good feeling is not worth a life time of a STD...the pros of using one out weigh the cons of loss of feeling!

  • Yeah, I can feel a big difference and going bare feels so much better.

  • Yes, it's better without a condom. It's smoother, less friction, plus condoms occasionally make weird noise. On the other hand, the fear of STDs and pregnancy without a condom is definitely not a plus - so if you go that route, make sure you and your partner have clean sexual histories. It's actually pretty common nowadays to go and get tested, and your partner get tested, prior to having sex without a condom.

    Also, if you forgo condoms and rely only on the pill, be smart about it - you have to take it within the same couple of hours (ideally in the same hour) each day or it's less effective, and you have to revert to condoms if you miss two pills in a row or take antibiotics - antibiotics weaken the effectiveness of the pill, I know of somebody who got pregnant that way!

  • personally I like it better without a condom. especially when he comes. :P lol

  • I don't notice any difference in feeling me personally! :)

  • I would first like to point out that in the middle of this page I see a condom ad...lmao

    ok now on with the answer...i love love love sex without a condom. feels so good. best sex ever...only problem is you can get prgeo and std's so be careful. I was married forever and a day and we never used condoms and I have 2 babies lol

    • Nothing beats the feeling of bareback I agree!!! Pulling out can help avoid pregnancy with perfect use ;-)

  • What kind of car?

  • definitely can feel the difference.

    i hate condoms. they suck.
