Condoms can’t prevent unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease if they’re used incorrectly. Unfortunately, a new review of research finds that condom use errors are all too common.
Some of the most frequent mistakes include putting a condom on partway through intercourse or taking it off before intercourse is over, failing to leave space at the tip of the condom for semen, and failing to look for damage before use. These errors can contribute to breakage or leakage, researchers reported Feb. 17 in the journal Sexual Health.
“We chronically underestimate how complicated condom use can be,” University of Kentucky professor Richard Crosby, who co-authored the study, said in a statement. “It involves the use of a condom, while negotiating the condom use and sex with a partner all at the same time.”
With perfect use, condoms prevent pregnancy with 98 percent success, according to the World Health Organization. Typically, however, the rate of unintended pregnancy with condoms is around 15 percent.
Led by Stephanie Sanders of The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction at Indiana University, the researchers pulled together 16 years of research on condom errors and failures going back to 1995. They found 50 studies from 14 countries, though western nations such as the United States and the United Kingdom predominated. The studies involved diverse groups of participants, from married individuals to sex workers to college students; as such, there were a range of condom use-error rates.
An analysis of all 50 studies found a laundry list of reported errors in condom use. For example, between 17 percent and 51.1 percent of people queried in the studies said they’d put on a condom partway through intercourse — negating any disease-controlling benefits, since fluids are exchanged throughout intercourse not just during ejaculation. Other studies found that between 1.5 percent and 24.8 percent of sexual experiences involved putting a condom on too late in the process of intercourse. [Sidebar: 14 Common Condom Errors]
The research also turned up multiple mistakes in how people put condoms on. Up to 25.3 percent said they unrolled the condom’s sheath before putting on the condom, rather than unrolling the condom on the penis. Between a quarter and almost half of respondents said they’d failed to leave room at the tip of the condom for semen to collect. About 75 percent of men and 82 percent of women failed to check condoms for damage before using them.
Between 0.8 percent and 40.7 percent of participants had experienced a condom break, and between 13.1 percent and 19.3 percent had one leak, depending on the study. Improper condom use, including the wrong kind of lubricant or storage, can contribute to these problems. For instance, oil-based lubricants will degrade latex condoms.
“Closing the gap between perfect use and the errors characterizing typical use is one of the most crucial challenges of future condom promotion programs,” the researchers wrote.
Drake answered the queston on if and when he would respond to Common. And the answer is……
No. Because despite how it’s been worded by him that situation is not a “hip hop moment” or a “battle for the sake of musical integrity”…it’s a ploy for attention around the release of an album. More than anything it was just disappointing cause what kid isn’t a fan of what Common has done for our genre. A guy who made such an incredible career for himself based off expressing genuine feelings about life and love is now targeting me for sharing my story.
Drake I feel you 100% on that one.
Common drops a few bars for the party goers at Dwyane Wade’s 30th Born Day Party.
Just Blaze states what I am thinking, what is all this beef about?
I couldn’t have said it better!
Birdman claims his allegiance to Drake in his war of bars with Common.
So the talk in the hip hop beef world is centered around this Common and Drake spat. No one for sure knows why Common has problems with the Canada Dry rapper, but whatever it may be, it has left Common with a bad taste in his mouth. About a month or so ago a track leaked where Common seemed to be calling out a rapper for being sweet. Rumors began to fly about who was the Chicago rapper targeting, was it Kanye? Was it Drake? Was it MC Hammer? Who the fuck knew? But Common cleared all that up during an interview with Sway, saying Pillow Talk Drake was the unlucky soul that the song was targeted towards. Word?
So then Drake being the dude that he is, jumped on Rick Ross’ Stay Schemin record and threw a few bars towards Common, even though in my opinion he should have taken the Jay-Z role and laughed it off. But nope, Wheel Chair Dreezy wanted to show us he wasn’t sweet after all.
Probably not a smart move, we remember A Bitch In You. Don’t we?
Well Common didn’t even let the speakers cool off before he responded to Drake.
So I’m asking what is this beef really about? Yeah Drake has that Bed Bath and Beyond flow at times, but is that enough to diss someone over? Especially if you used to wear crochet shirts and pants, looking like the male version of Badu! Yeah I remember. Could it be over something more than rhymes? Word on the internets suggest that it is over Serena Williams? Not sure, don’t know. But I find it strange or just a coincidence that Serena used to play with Common for a while. Then got up and picked her balls from a new can with Drake.
So Sense this Common/Drake pillow fight ain’t showing no signs of letting up, the question I have for you all is do you care? I mean a Common/Drake battle is about as exciting to me as Krs-One getting at PM Dawn. Not feeling it. I know some of you out there is geeked about this as if it is the return of LL Cool vs Moe Dee. It’s not that. It is more akin to a varsity dude playing one on one with the young upstart from the 8th grade. You tight, but you ain’t ready. This is like Andre 3000 calling out Fonzworth Bentley for wearing pink! Nope, almost hypocritical if you ask Danny P.
But whatever the reason is the beef is in full swing. Your serve Drake.
Common stopped by 93.7 and dropped a freestyle for the listeners. A true freestyle. Not one of those freestyles where your boys is rapping along with you in the background. Just wish we could have heard the track he was rhyming to.
The title should say it all, Yo! MTV Raps is back!!! Now don’t go getting all super-excited, it is only for a special airing on Dec. 4th. But you never know what it could lead to if the ratings are through the roof. The show will feature the original show’s hosts, Fab 5 Freddy, Ed Lover and Doctor Dre and will have Q-Tip, Ice Cube, Wiz Khalifa, Questlove, Busta Rhymes, Young Jeezy, Phife, Common and much more as special guests.
I would rather MTV treat this special as a new show, as opposed to a memory lane episode. Let’s show the younger cats how we used to do it.
The cover alone makes my mind wander. So the album better be good, and not that Universal sh*t he was on with his last one.
Look for the album Dec. 20, just in time for someone’s Holiday stocking!!
Don’t know bout y’all, but this is the Common that I have been waiting on. It only makes Sense!!
Look at here. This is supposedly the final tracklist for Common’s upcoming album The Dreamer, The Believer. Let’s hope that this is another classic. Or at least a good ass album. We need to top the year off right!!
If you haven’t heard Sweet, you need to check it out.
When I heard “Sweet” I though to myself, “I haven’t heard Common talk shit like that since One Day It’ll All Make Sense.” What made you bring that old Common back?
Common: It’s funny you say the old Common, ‘cause one of my boys said, “Man, you remind me of when you was at FAMU [Florida A&M University] when he heard that song. He was like, “I’ve been waiting for that song for 20 years from you. I think what I did was just not put that responsibility of saying, “Man, OK, just because I went to the White House, I can’t express that side of me. Or just because I’m doing this brand partnership and because I am speaking to the kids and say, “Do something right,” that still don’t mean I ain’t an adult that feel like, “Nigga, get yo’ hoe ass out of here,” or I’ma fight when I need to fight. I had to make that decision for myself and part of it was just me being more comfortable in my skin and being like, “I’m a man, I ain’t gotta sit around and be worried about what everybody is gon think. I just gotta be who I am, what I am and say what I feel and if that shit come out not the right thing, it’s not the right thing sometimes. But it’s right because it’s what I’m feeling and it’s true to the art and it’s music.
You also had the line, “Take a dive like Greg Louganis and his bitch ass.” He hit his head on the diving board. What made you come up with that line?
I mean, he was soft. He was gay. [Laughs] At that time, I was just saying what was on my mind. I had a different way of thinking then in a way. I’m still gon’ say what’s on my mind, but you know, now whatever that person doing, that’s what they do. You can hear on “Sweet” I’m like, “You soft ass muthafuckas, hoe ass niggas.” I’m just gon let it out, if I gotta let it out.
