They are so busy patting each other on the back that they do not coherently and succinctly state the point of the article. I'm more confused now than before attempting to read it!

Should be "vag inal or an al intercourse without a condom."

But this is the US.

It likely depends on the strap-on. If the strap-on is made of certain materials, they are incompatible with certain kinds of lubrication so a condom is used to protect the strap-on from damage.

Condoms also aid in cleanliness of the strap-on. It's just like a real penis in respect the STDs can still be transferred using a strap-on or any insensitive toys.

Well as someone who hates condoms I applaud any effort to develop alternatives as well as updating terminology for safe sex to be broadened into techniques beyond just condoms.

Telling people safe = condoms and that no condoms = unsafe just leads to us all having unsatisfying sex by using them or unsafe sex by not using using them (or any other method). Surely we can do better.
