"Sensitivity of skin-to-skin of the penis and vagina increases if there is no barrier," explains Dr. Axel, "and with that comes a greater sense of intimacy. If a man fears that taking the time to put on a condom will decrease erectile function or take away from the spontaneity of the sex, it may seem easier and less distracting to enter [a woman] without a condom, then pull out as orgasm nears. For women who want the contact, who want to feel the man inside, then the pullout method helps."
I'll grant that a huge plus to having sex is having everything work correctly. But again, it just seems like such a small price to pay until you're in a committed relationship, both tested for STDs, and on birth control.
Ultimately, though, pulling out doesn't replace condoms
Even if pulling out can help prevent pregnancy, it's doing nothing to prevent STD transmission. Bottom line? Until both partners have up-to-date testing done, it's still advisable to adhere to the "no glove, no love" rule. And although we're making advances every day in STD prevention and treatment, we're just not there yet.
