5 Reasons to Use a Condom (and why it can be really fun!)

Why do we have such an aversion to condoms? They don’t have to take away our fun—in fact they can add to it, and here are five reasons why.

  1. They’ll protect you and your lover against STDs and STIs
    More than half of all people will have an STD/STI in their lifetime according to Center for Disease Control research released October 19, 2016. That’s a staggering figure! Condoms are one important way to reduce the risk you and your lover have of contracting an STD or STI.
  2. Show your partner you respect and care for them
    Health is your most important asset! By using a condom, you are saying something powerful to your partner; that you care for their well-being and want them to stay healthy.
  3. Spice up your sex—or at least make foreplay more flavorful
    It’s a chocolate cone… it’s your favorite soda… no, it’s a condom! Sprinkle these flavored treats into your love life for an added dash of fun and flavor. It’s a great way to make the condom a nice featured appetizer before the main course.
  4. Condoms can be sexy
    It’s the truth. Putting on a condom doesn’t have to be a clinical maneuver—unless you fancy some nurse role play, then it definitely can be a clinical maneuver. Build the dawning of a condom into a part of your foreplay, make it fun! Have it be a part of your experience, not something that interrupts your experience.
  5. Experience new sensations
    Ribbed and studded condoms, along with other rubbers that bring on warm and tingling sensations can be new, fun, and exciting. You’ll feel sex in a whole new way!

It’s just condom sense to use a condom. Who knew being smart could be this fun.

Get Free Condoms

LOVERS_HOMEPAGEBANNER_FREECONDOMS_1000X400

We are giving away more than 100,000 free condoms to help raise awareness and prevention to help combat a record rise in national STD cases. If you visit any of the 46 Peekay Boutiques family of brands, including Lovers, Christal’s, A Touch of Romance, or ConRev stores across the country beginning June 19, you will receive a free condom just for coming into the store. You can also visit our website and submit a request to receive a free condom.

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) research released on October 19, 2016, nearly 20 million new sexually transmitted infections occur every year in the United States, half among young people aged 15–24. Reported cases of primary and secondary syphilis rose by 19%, gonorrhea cases rose by 12.8%, and chlamydia cases rose by 5.9%, from 2014. The consistent and correct use of male latex condoms can reduce (though not eliminate) the risk of STD transmission.

“Lovers, and all of Peekay Boutiques’ family of brands, have always focused on sexual health as being an important part of sexual well-being and passion,” said Lisa Berman, Chief Executive Officer for Lovers. “Our goal is to support our customers living their most fun and fulfilling sex life, and that includes their health and safety.”
