In the last few weeks, I have been asked several times by both Americans and Ukrainians, “Aren’t there little tiny holes in condoms that make them ineffective and useless against pregnancy and STDs?”
“Some people claim that condoms have tiny pores or holes in them through which sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV can pass. This is not true. Many studies show that condoms do not have pores big enough for HIV to travel through. Most latex condoms have walls that are approximately .05 mm thick – a virus such as HIV would therefore have to pass through a barrier around 500 times thicker than itself to reach the outside.”
Condoms are 98% effective!!!!
