This news should bring some long-lasting pleasure to San Francisco's condom crusaders who are trying to blanket the city with free rubbers: The nation's sexually active report being just as excited when using rubbers during sex as they are during bare-backing sessions.

A new study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine revealed that both men and women were plenty satisfied with their orgasms, describing them as pleasurable and arousing whether a condom was used or not.

San Francisco Is a City of Sluts, Study Finds

Researchers studied American men and women between the ages of 18 and 59 to assess characteristics of condoms and lubricants that they had used in their most recent sexual escapade. Of the 1,600 who participated in the study, about 28 percent of men and 22 percent of women reported using condoms. Researchers took that information and asked them to rate the quality of their sex.

Part of the reason the sex might still be great is that guys reported getting an erection with just as much ease when a condom was present. Of course, there's no erection like the one some men get from BMW rides, but we digress.

Per the study, which by the way was funded by Church Dwight, Inc., the maker of Trojan condoms:

The U.S. continues to grapple with high rates of sexually transmitted infections, HIV, and unintended pregnancies. We need to understand how people make choices about the products they use (or avoid using) and how these products contribute to the safety and pleasurable aspects of their sexual experiences. This is particularly important as the products themselves evolve and become more mainstream in American society. We also need to understand what men and women know, or don't know, about the products they use so that we can better target public health education messages to individuals and groups. Understanding current condom use offers health care providers an opportunity to educate those people uncomfortable with condoms but for whom lack of use may lead to significant sexually transmitted infection health risk.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
