In a feature I call “Your Turn,” in which you, the readers, get to answer the question, I’m presenting the following letter without commentary from me:
Now we’ve been regularly using condoms for a few months and my boyfriend is always huffy and argumentative about it. We had a huge fight a few days ago about how he doesn’t like using condoms because we’re in love and exclusive and he hates the limited sensation and says sex is not the same with them. While I don’t love them either, I really really don’t love rushing to the doctor in agony with a UTI every month.
Am I missing something? I feel like he’s being completely unreasonable. Using condoms isn’t that big of a deal, considering the excruciating pain it saves me. I don’t know how to resolve this. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. — Tired of UTIs
