Health & Sex | Why it’s a good idea to use a condom with your strap-on
After watching the new episode of Between Women TV yesterday, I decided to do a little writing on the topic of using condoms with strap ons. Yay or nay? Should ladies wrap it up when sticking it to their other half? Is it true that STD’s cant be transmitted by using a dildo? These are all things that lesbians need to know in order to stay safe, clean, and healthy. Let’s get into this post!
There are a number of AG women who feel it’s appropriate to wear a rubber when using a strap on a new lady friend or a lover. If you don’t already know, gay women can catch STD’s from being penetrated with a strap on that has been used on a girl who isn’t clean. If strap ons aren’t cleaned after being used on different sexual partners, things can go downhill FAST. I’m talking in the blink of an eye.
For one thing, it’s easy to catch a bacterial infection from a strap or sex toy that has been used over and over and has a combination of bodily fluids and lube stuck to it. Think about it. Dildos that are made from 100% medical grade silicone, stainless steel, or have been used with a condom are much less likely to hold bacteria than other sex toys. 100% medical grade silicone, stainless steel, and Pyrex are the only TRUE non porous sex toy materials available to distributors. Remember this next time an AG tells you it’s “not possible” to get an STD from a strap on.
With all this being said, I think that if you and a special person in your life and are committed and you purchase a NEW sex toy to use in the bedroom, there is no need to use a condom if you don’t prefer one. Just as long as you only use that sex toy on your partner and toss it out if a new person enters your life. Most strap on dildos can be taken apart and put in the dish washer to be cleaned. You can also buy cleaners that are specially designed to clean bacteria off of rubber sex toys between uses. If you’re a single stud and your strapping down everything you can see within a 30 foot radius, I suggest you use a condom every time and note that you can STILL catch an STD if you are on the giving end of a strap. Protect yourselves ladies. A vagina is a wonderful thing to have. Treat your’s with respect!
