It seems then that people are still enjoying having sex – they are just trying to cover all their bases by creating strong barriers to conception. And, when you stop to think about it for a moment, this may actually be a fun and pleasurable way to combat our slowing economy. Latex condoms, female condoms, spermicides and the sponge are all cheaper than a movie, and a monthly birth control pill pack, NuvaRing, or Ortho Evra patch all cost less than a romantic dinner (plus, sex is a bit more intimate than dinner and a movie, anyway).
What does this mean? It’s time to jump on the bandwagon and join the rest of America in this passionate and exciting new trend. It’s time to put some spice into your love life.
- Condoms can be really sexy if you put one on with your mouth
- Be adventurous and check-out some of the fun styles and condom types – like warming and tingling condoms, glow-in-the-dark condoms, and pleasure-shaped condoms (sounds pretty kinky!)
- For less than it would cost to go out on the town, silicone-based personal lubricants may add a new dimension to your pleasure-seeking activities at home
- How about some steamy sex in a hot tub, pool, lake or Jacuzzi?
