    Just Do It

    So Right On This One

    I mean come on how hard is it to put a little piece of rubber on a guy.. Not that very hard... I know some girls don't care about protection... I don't really understand that... But when they do get pregnant and don't want the child and abort it then I always want to ask them...

    Two Minutes, Tops

    I hate comdoms, but I know how effective they are. For a long time, I had a girlfriend that was on the pill and we ****** all the time without putting one on. We never had a pregnancy scare (none I knew of anyway) and we didn't have to stop to wrap my **** in a piece of nearly...

    "who Cares You Only Live Once," About His Not Getting Checked Out For V.d.

    I had a boyfriend last year for a few months and when it came time for us to be together we were protected...on my insistence.  The next time I was checking him out with my hand if you know what I mean and felt a bump!  He tried to pawn it off as a scar he had for years and...

    Im Pretty Shore My Father Didn't Want Me To Be Born

    Im not mad at him (even though technically I should) because he never did anything bad to me, but I know that because he never cared about my existence, he never wanted me to be born. Seriously dude, would wearing a condom with my mother be THAT bad? I mean yeah, I wouldn't exist...

    Keep Your Hat On

    I always make sure I have a condom in my wallet, and always put one when I don't know the woman I'm with too well. I only have had sex one time without a condom, but it wasn't my fault, the girl I was with suddenly took the condom off my ****. It was a really a bad experience...

    Cannot Understand Why

    Condoms, Pills,rings, Shots, Diaphrams I Don't Care Take Your Pick.

    Not only does protection protect you from disease and infection, but can also protect you from having a child. I KNOW you know...so why am I telling you this? Well because I think people focus way too much on only one of the benefits of contraception either to prevent pregnancy...
