Lack of education regarding proper condom use


Erection difficulties are a common complaint from condom users, yet a recent study says condoms are not to blame and that more education is needed about proper condom use.
Working with 479 heterosexual male condom users between the ages of 18 and 24, the research team concluded that those who said the condoms gave them erection trouble likely were experiencing generalized erection difficulties.
One third of participants, they say, were not familliar with proper condom use and they propose psychosexual therapy or educational information to those who complain of condom-associated erection troubles.
“Condom-associated erection problems have been a very under-researched topic,” says co-author Dr. Cynthia Graham. “Increasing evidence suggests, however, that they may influence whether condoms are used correctly or from start to finish of sex.”
The study was published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
