Sex is highly arousing and pleasurable to men and women in the United States whether or not condoms and/or lubricants are used, according to a new study in The Journal of Sexual Medicine and a statement by Wiley, which publishes the journal. Also, no differences were found in regards to how men rated the ease of their erections based on condom or lube use. Debby Herbenick, PhD, MPH, and Michael Reece, PhD, MPH, of Indiana University reviewed data from the 2009 National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior. The survey included U.S. men and women ages 18 to 59. Church & Dwight Inc., the maker of Trojan condoms, funded the study by Herbenick and Reece.
