When you are having sex outside of a monogamous relationship in which both partners are tested to be safe from sexually transmitted disease, you should always use condoms. This goes for oral sex too. For blowjobs we are lucky enough to have flavoured condoms! Yummy!

But flavoured condoms can be for everyone. Even if you are in a safe monogamous relationship, flavoured condoms can be used on occasion just for the fun of it! Trying different things is what sex is all about.

Benefits of Flavoured Condoms

Flavoured condoms provide the benefit of safe oral sex, because yes you can get diseases from blowjobs - that goes for the giver and the receiver.

Flavoured condoms also give you a little bit of yummy to enjoy while giving a blowjob.

Using a condom while giving a blowjob also means that the come ends up in the condom rather than in your mouth when he comes - a big benefit for the more squeamish blowjob giver.

Another benefit is it provides the man getting the blowjob with a sensation that is quite different to a blowjob without a condom. Some men might be a little suspicious about whether it can still feel good but they really should try it at least once! It's a smoother sensation, still nice and warm and if you put a little lube inside the condom before applying it, very nice and wet.

Common Questions about Flavoured Condoms

Q: Is it safe to have sex with a flavoured condom?

A: Some flavoured condoms are safe to have sex with, but others aren't. If you aren't sure then don't. Another point to beware of for women is: sugar and pussy don't mix, so if your flavoured condom has a form of sugar as a sweetener then don't risk it - sugar can feed yeast and lead to an infection. Yikes!

Q: What flavours are there?

A:So many flavours! Common flavours are strawberry, bannana and chocolate but there are many more!

Q: What do flavoured condoms taste like?

A:The flavour is mild and there is no denying the rubbery taste is still there but it's a lot better than the taste of unflavoured condoms. Another good point is they smell yummy, and that seems to help them taste better.

Q: Does a blowjob still feel good for the man if he is wearing a flavoured condom?

A:Yes. It still feels warm. Add some lube under the condom and it feels wet. The sensation is smoother so it is different, but it still feels good.
