Even if you have access to condoms and know how to use them, getting your partner to actually put one on can be tricky! Talking about using condoms can be difficult or awkward, especially in the heat of the moment.

It can be helpful to think about your personal views and cultural attitudes about sex, condoms, and relationships before trying to talk about condoms with a partner.

Once you are clear on what is important to you and what you are willing or not willing to do with a partner sexually, it will be easier to say those things to another person.

Sometimes discussions about sex and condoms are difficult because women and girls:

  • Are often taught that it is not 'their place' to 'speak up' and protect themselves

  • Feel uncomfortable talking about sex – sometimes this is from lack of information, and sometimes this is simply because it can be awkward talking about something so personal or intimate

  • May fear rejection,they feel their partners may leave them or think poorly of them if they talk about using condoms.

At times too they feel that requests for the use of a condom will be interpreted by their partner as a lack of trust or even an indication that they are in another relationship.
