Savage Love

Hey, Faggot: I wanted to comment on a particular kind of condom you recommended for use by those who have either a dislike or an allergy to latex, Avanti polyurethane condoms [Oct. 30]. My boyfriend and I decided to try Avantis. We usually engage in fairly normal, hetero intercourse and although he is above average in size, my partner does not rival John Holmes, if you get what I'm saying.

On two separate occasions when using Avanti condoms, they broke. This was, mind you, with ample lube, correct application, etc. The first time we thought, "Well, this can happen to anyone." After the second time, we decided a new addition to the family was not worth avoiding the extra application of lube now and then (which keeps latex condoms comfortable for us).

I asked around and found that I was not the only one who had experienced difficulty with these guys. Anal sex would certainly give these little jobbies a run for their money if my relatively tame hetero sex did.

Hey, C: Thanks for writing.

Confidential to Everybody: If you want a copy of a past column, please include a self-addressed stamped envelope. Or better yet, send me your e-mail address and I'll blast it out to you. While it's nice to know past columns are in demand, there's only so much postage I can steal from my employer before I start to feel, well, naughty.
