Ask Dr. K
TWO CONDOMS BETTER THAN ONE?

QUESTION
Would wearing two condoms during sex decrease my chances of getting HIV?

ANSWER
There is no evidence that wearing two condoms is more effective than wearing one, and in fact, there is some hearsay evidence that the friction of the two condoms rubbing together can cause them to break, making you more susceptible to HIV and other STDs.

To your health,
Dr. K
