The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Well, don't they basically work by making a woman's body think she's pregnant - ovulation is suppressed, right? I've said elsewhere that I swear those things don't actually prevent pregnancy - they just make women so disinterested in sex it's a moot point.

    Magnums or Trojan Supras if I feel spendy. Polyurethane to transmit bodyheat.
    Works well as a defense against "I'm allergic to Latex."
    Roll it on and throw it in.

    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    I second the Beyond 7's. Really thin and yet still durable. We like the "Ribs and Dots" kind.

    I'd also have to say Inspiral's. They are baggy at the tip which increases the sensations for both you and her.

    Definitely always go for the lightly lubed. Speaking of lubes, the best by far is Astroglide Gel. The stuff lasts forever!

    Wet Platinum is my lube of choice. As good as Eros but easier to wash off.

    Sadly, there are only two condoms that I have found that fit. One is Trojan Large and it sucks big time. I can't remember the other one off hand, but it was better, but not by much. I have noticed that the suppliers are starting to stock more large sizes (or maybe it's the retailer) so hopefully the variety perks up.

    I heard that that baggy but is meant to simulate a foreskin for guys who are circumcised.

    I'm not circumcised and the baggy bit doesn't really do a lot for me apart from get in the way. I prefer a condom to be quite tight fitting.

    I really like Astroglide too but it's quite uncommon here in the UK - durex Play is probably the most popular.

    I'm usually surprised when I hear that because I can't stand tight fitting condoms.

    Just what's comfortable for me I guess. I'm not talking horribly tight- just enough so that it definately won't slip or become loose.

    I never understood when people say that condoms "don't fit."

    I can stretch one over my head - I'll be impressed if anyone is THAT big

    Whoa you've had the time to take a rubber and strech it over your head?

    Well just because it *can* fit over the penis doesn't mean that it isn't ridiculously tight (especially the ring around the base). The penis needs to have blood flow around it and if the condom is too tight then it can cause problems.

    I'm sure he's seen a health teacher do it before or something but as far as I know none of my friends nor I have ever taken the time to blow one up over our heads.

    Hmmm in my experience it takes some serious grip on the receiver's part to get a condom to come off... I've only had it happen a couple of times.

    I never understood when people say that condoms "don't fit."
    "Fit" is really a subjective matter. Yes, you can fit it over your head, but the fit being talked about is "comfortable fit". It may all be mental but I can't stand the fit of most regular condoms. I buy the Magnum because if doesn't feel as tight.

    Heh... I guess I shouldn't tell you about certain sex toys made specifically to keep blood from flowing freely in and out.
