Can I give oil massage to my boyfriend before sex? Can it cause rupturing of condoms?

Resolved Question:

I want to give oil massage to my boyfriend before having sex but I have heard that the oil can rot condoms. I need to know if there is any safest way of giving a massage and also if it is safe and won’t cause infection that herpes pictures define.

Thanks for your question and concern. All the latex condoms get rotten by the oil no matter what type of oil you are using as it is made up of rubber and even if you try hard you can’t protect the rubber of the condom from the oil. It is however possible to give oil massage to your boyfriend before you have sex with him and all this can be done if you use polyurethane condoms which have proved to be extremely safe when used with products that are oil based. Using a normal condom after massaging your boyfriend with oil will result into the rubber to rot and hence it won’t be safe anymore. This can cause different infections including the herpes as defined in the herpes pictures because you will be having unprotected sex then. To gather more information about the massages and using condoms you could check with your doctor. You can also dial a helpline number if you don’t feel comfortable in having a direct conversation with your doctor in his cabin. You can also visit GUM clinic to know more about various infections transmitted to your partner on not having protected sex. You can probably ask your doctor to explain you various herpes pictures along with providing the precautions to be taken for protecting yourself from all such infections. All the information that you collect from different doctors and clinics will be very useful for you in the future and save you from the infections. Best wishes.
