Don’t Reuse Your Condoms, The CDC Warns

https-%2f%2fblueprint-api-production-s3-amazonaws-com%2fuploads%2fcard%2fimage%2f117696%2fmain-image_zframwCondoms are a great way to practice safe sex—when used correctly. Apparently, that doesn’t always happen, according to the CDC (the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). Recently, they issued a warning on Twitter, saying: “We say it because people do it: Don’t wash or reuse condoms! Use a fresh one for each sex act.”

The CDC added, “Incorrect use, such as reusing a condom or using more than one at a time, diminishes the protective effect of condoms by leading to condom breakage, slippage, or leakage.” Of course, some Twitter users’ responses were pretty great: “Hold on babe, let me just grab one off the clothes line…” Another tweet said, “Well, what the hell am I supposed to do with all these condoms in the dishwasher now?” Condoms are a single-use item (duh): “Let’s say you have sex three times in one night — you should be changing the condom three times or before the next sex act,” says the CDC.
