It is amazing that some people Really can come up with these excuses Garrett.

You are welcome M.Rose

Some of them were not that funny when I heard them in the heat of passion ;-) only looking back I can laugh at them!

Some of these are funny but overall, to me, they are a turn off.

some of the excuses show how uneducated the person spouting them are. Im a 21 year-old college student and I've made it a point to educate myself on the topic of safe sex...

As you said Anath, it may be funny now but its not when you're in the heat of passion.

I really like your hub. Good Job.

Ha! On the flip side of "I'm too big to wear a condom," my personal favorite... "It'll slip off." (In his defense, he was really... uhm... well, it probably would have slipped off.) Thanks for publishing these, Anath, gave me a good laugh!

Great hub. I've heard almost all of them. And you only have problems if you use the natural skin condoms which I have never seen. I personally abstain from intercourse if there isn't a condom available. I happen to be allergic to latex. In ALL forms. :)

Great humor -- and a few sad but true. There are men who will go around having sex outside marriage which is forbidden by their religion but not use a condom because that's forbidden by their religion. Sure if both of them are playing by the rules of their religion, maybe they don't need one. But it's a bit screwy of a priority.
