What are some of the most popular condom errors and how common are they?
In episode 22, Dr. Zhana and Joe talk to Dr. Cynthia Graham about the different ways people misuse condoms and make condom errors.
We’ve been actively talking and educating about condoms for decades now, and if people would only listen to scientists and public health professionals, everyone would be wrapping it up all the time! But that doesn’t seem to be the case, and too often, condoms don’t get used, and sometimes they get used but fail, and people end up with unwanted pregnancies and STIs. So Dr. Zhana and Joe sat down with Dr. Cynthia Graham and discussed her research on these errors.

According to a survey, only 12% of females have asked a male to send a dick pic.
Researchers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology found that women LIKE one-night stands as long as these two conditions are met: they’re the one who initiated it and the other person was good at getting-it-on. And that second condition is definitely important. The researchers found that both women AND men are more likely to regret a one-night stand if the other person was mediocre in bed.
