According to my experience, condoms are like cigarettes: every man has his favorite brand. His preference might depend on comfort, sensitivity, or simply because a particular brand has never let him down. When I was studying at University, condoms were given away for free. We could drop by the medical center and pick up as many as we wanted. In addition, there were several different types and brands to choose from. I only realized how fortunate the situation was when I came to Spain and had to pay for them myself. The truth is I didn’t know they were so expensive. As a solution, I made my boyfriends buy them.
