Advice from three of our guy friends. This week they answer the following: “What do men think of a woman who has her own supply of condoms? What do they think of women who expect men alone to always buy the condoms?“
Gay Married Guy (Jon Ross): I think a woman who has her own supply of condoms is responsible, healthy and probably fun to hang out with. I like to think we’ve moved beyond the concept of a “modern woman.” Every person needs to take responsibility for his or her own sexual health and safety.
Straight Single Guy (Chris): A girl with condoms is sexy, experienced, and confident. I have absolutely no problem with it. I think it might bother me a little if someone always expected me to supply them, but not enough not to fuck them, so I guess it doesn’t really matter. You know what does bother me, though? A half-empty bottle of lube. I just always assume the worst: rough anal with somebody the night before. They really should put that stuff in smaller bottles.
Straight Married Guy (David): For most married men this is probably a moot point. Whatever protections against the makin’ of babies they use are paid for with shared funds. Or the babies already made have made the makers too exhausted to do the baby making thang at all. In which case any old condoms get used for the making of balloon animals.
