When is the best time to talk to my partner about using a condom?

Most guys do not like wearing condoms, and they often come up with all sorts of excuses to avoid putting one on. 

Whatever excuses your partners come up with, you’ll only have effective replies if you prepare yourself.

In order to maximize your chances of winning this battle, find a way to deal with the issue well before action time. 

You don’t want to find yourself half-naked and in the middle of foreplay when the topic first comes up; the chances you’ll give in will be very high!

Regardless of whether it’s your first time or you’ve already had sex, there will be several occasions when you are alone with your partner and are enjoying each other’s company and fooling around a bit. 

Sooner or later, during one of these moments, the issue of going all the way will pop up. 

That’s the perfect time to express your concern about the risks associated with unprotected sex and to state your decision to have sex only if your partner wears a condom.

It is extremely unlikely that a man who is aware of your strong convictions about the issue would try to push you at the risk of not getting what he deeply desires. 

If he does try to change your mind, perhaps by telling you that you’re wrong about the risks, then the problem you are facing has nothing to do with whether to use a condom or not. 

You need to think about whether a man who doesn’t care about your safety—or his—is right for you.
