Are condoms effective? Are they always necessary? What is the correct way to put one on? Only two species on the face of the earth have sex for pleasure – humans, and dolphins! Well, dolphins have limited options for contraception but humans are blessed with funky, textured and innovative condoms!
Condoms are worn by men during sexual intercourse to prevent unwanted pregnancies and Sexually Transmitted Infections. They are the third most popular choice of contraception amongst men and women after female sterilization (29.5%) and oral contraception pills (28.5%). Condoms are one of the most effective contraceptives with failure rates as low as 2-3%.
For most men, there is a lot of performance anxiety during sex. There are plenty of insecurities and the fear of not being able to satisfy their partners. This is especially prevalent in those who orgasm relatively quicker than their partner. Climaxing for men can be a deal breaker. Unlike women who can have multiple orgasms in a single session, men can sustain only one at a time and take all the more time and effort to regain arousal levels close enough for them to orgasm again.
Condoms can make sex feel better, look better, and be better! They not only prevent unwanted pregnancies but also save you from getting nasty Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs). They come in different colours, sizes and textures (https://www.momentscondoms.com.au/ultra-thin-condoms-australia/) and are designed to fit all-male body types. A rubber is so good, it might even be a status symbol for a sexually active adult.
When actress and celebrity Alyssa Milano tweeted on urging people to reply with a “me too” if they have been sexually assaulted or harassed, many women followed suit and spoke their hearts out. What started with the Harvey Weinstein scandal at the Oscars, gradually became a global trend in which women across the globe gained confidence and courage to speak out about their own experiences.
“What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have. And I’m especially proud and inspired by all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories.”
It’s official! We’re excited to announce that Moments Condoms will be a ‘Supporting Partner’ and ‘Official Condom Sponsor’ during the 2019 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival – celebrating sexuality and sexual health.
At Moments Condoms, we are proud to shine a spotlight on sexual health through our new partnership with this iconic event, a global beacon of diversity, inclusivity and champion of LGBTQI rights.
The fact that this needs to be said again is kind of mind blowing: Stop shaming women for carrying condoms. How are we still even talking about this?
Can’t we all collectively agree that we have this completely backwards? Carrying a condom doesn’t make you easy, slutty, gross, or disease ridden. It makes you responsible. If you happen to be slutty and carry condoms? That’s your own damn business.
68% of teen girls used a condom the first time they had sex. Of course, we pretend that no teens are having sex and that telling them sex is “bad” will magically stop them from doing it. In case you missed it: Nope.
We need to stop putting our health in the hands of teen boys (and grown men) who don’t know what they’re doing. According to a study of over 800 women, nearly half reported feeling unhappy with or pressured into sex. Half. And we’re worried about a woman who actually carries condoms and takes control of her own body, health, and sexual destiny?
Is this a joke? It sure feels that way. Listen, it’s time to stop shaming a woman who is carrying a condom. Ladies, if you pull a condom out and the person you’re going to have sex with dares shame you: Do not have sex with that person It’s not worth your time.
Carry your condoms and where them like a badge of honor.
Moments Condoms have found a match and its healthy, safe and very interesting!
We have partnered with the talented Andi Lew for her book #Instalovers that talks about digital dating netiquette, Direct Message disasters and the numerous infotaining instances that happen in the time of love-on-internet. The hilarious, informative, witty and courageous book on modern tech dating is scheduled for a media launch in December before hitting the bookstores across Australia in January next year.
Andi organically approached Moments Condoms after feeling inspired by the vegan certified condoms which come with affirmations to help you feel empowered and prepared, packaged in a little box of three!
Men and women are increasingly resorting to online dating applications to find love and companionship instead of going with conventional dating ways. Moments Condom believes that sex should be liberating, empowering, fun and most importantly safe! We feel women today must realise and be sensitive to their sexual health and take confident decisions in favour of it.

In a world that constantly tries to undermine our decision-making capacities, contemplating a tryst with potential lovers can be a tough one to beat. We do believe in the majestic power of scintillating feelings and stirred up endorphins, but Moments will be there to put your needs and safety above a fleeting romance or a lasting affair. If we don’t look out for each other, ladies, who will?
It would be a lie of crazy proportions if we said first dates are supposed to be a breeze. Every individual has the nerves that keep one up at night wondering who is going to make the first move. We propose you help us create a world where we, as women, put our needs first.
Butterflies aside, there is something that has tainted generations of women throughout their existence. Yep, you guessed that right – our sexuality and wellbeing. And perhaps, it is time we break those barriers.

But when you are swamped with board meetings and picking the best suit out, it is important to also protect yourself against vicious infections and uncomfortable encounters. We at Moments understand the fight you bring to claim your space in the industry. After all, if we’re going to war, we might as well have some fun.

My thoughts while online dating: “Oh my God, I’m going to be single my entire life.” Anon. This one is to cherish all those who still wish to acquaint themselves to other beings and long for a connection. To the brave women who date in the age of hookups, raise your glass!
The alluring and peculiar world of dating recently experienced a huge shift as its millennial inhabitants decided to stir up old dynamics. In this newfound realm, a few odd ones are stuck in a loop where pretty much everyone else wants to pick something casual as they wait for ‘the one.’
With the sorcery that capitalism is, it doesn’t come as a surprise that it is grabbing individuals one by one with its charm. Casual sex seems like a reasonable option given the crazy, tiresome schedules that people work. Some people find it convenient to make up and break up over their phone screens – without even a face to face conversation.
We kid you not, finding the courage to date in this era can be a bittersweet experience, to say the least.
And since we at Moments are dedicated to the women who are exceptional at juggling things – sexual health and relationships make up a huge part of the deal. Ladies, it is time to take the baton into your hands and make a run for the win. Our condoms are specially designed for those very dates, to ensure your safety against vicious infections and unbearable stress.
There has been a turn of chapters ever since receptivity to sexuality found willing arms. Needless to say, it comes with immense hope for women to experiment, play around, and take matters into their own hands.
We’re for women. We’re for men.
We’re for anyone who wants to have a good time.
But our true passion and reason for being is to empower women to celebrate and protect their sexual health. At Moments, we believe that women should feel confident purchasing condoms and have no hesitation when deciding to make the good times, safe times.
