Frequently Asked Questions

We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions to help you learn more about Condoms and how to make the most of them.

Safer sex refers to how partners can minimize these risks. It includes frequent testing for STIs, commitment to the same partner (or partners), and using condoms and dental dams.

Whether you and your partner have a penis or vagina, you can make sex safer by communicating openly about your sexual history and recent STI test results. Having sex with only one partner is another way to minimize your risk and possible exposure to infections.

Condoms are one of the best ways to stay safe during sex.

There's no reason that safe(r) sex should feel any less pleasurable or satisfying than unsafe sex. Knowing that you don't have to worry about negative consequences from your interaction can be extremely hot — you free yourself and your partner up to focus entirely on the enjoyable interactions at hand. (Yes, please!)

Here are a few suggestions to help ensure that your encounter is as safe as it is smoking hot:

1. Have a discussion with your partner about your sexual and testing histories ahead of time.

2. Decide together what method(s) you'll use to prevent the spread of infections and, if relevant, unintended pregnancy.

3. If you're using condoms, try Maxim Textured Condom, and discover what works best for you and your partner.

4. Don't forget that lube makes (almost) everything better. Be sure to select a lubricant that's compatible with any condoms or dental dams you're using.
