Does the pullout method work?

I met someone that wants to meet up and have sex, but he doesn’t like using condoms. He told me he would pull out and that he’s 100% clean. I’ve never had sex before. I understand condoms take away sensation for the boy and I don’t want to make him use one. Is this ok and safe?

  • Don't fall for it. You're young and you've never had sex before. Condoms are not that bad, he's just trying to go in raw. The pullout method is not 100% effective, but either way, so many guys say they will and then don't do it. Also him saying he's 100% clean is not a reliable form of an STI test. If he's willing to stick it in you without a condom, he's willing to stick it in other girls without one, too. It sounds like you don't know him all that well and I would recommend using a condom, for sure. STIs are WAY more common than you've been taught in school (the majority of sexually active people will contract at least one STI in their life, please don't let that be you). So until you know this guy a bit more and are comfortable with him, and preferably on birth control, I would not recommend having unprotected sex, until you find a trusted partner.

  • Statistically, it's certainly better than letting him cum inside you, but it isn't remotely "safe".

    Though different studies come up with different numbers (which is understandable, because every person is unique), hormone-based birth control (i. e., the pill, the implant, Depo, etc.) is over 99% effective, condoms are around 98% effective, and the "withdrawal method" is about 85% effective - and that's for a single sex session. If you have sex often enough, and both his and your fertility are in the normal range, you are almost certain to become pregnant that way.

    I hate condoms too, but if you aren't on BC, and you aren't looking to get pregnant (which I certainly hope is true), then a condom is a necessity, not an option.

  • If he’s refusing to wear a condom, don’t have sex with him. It’s not worth the numerous risks of unprotected sex, just to maybe have a good time once. Pulling out is literally, one of the worst forms of birth control (if it could even be considered that) out there. It’s so not worth it to get pregnant just because he doesn’t like wearing a condom. There are also plenty of different kinds of condoms that feel different, so tell him to get a different kind.

  • it is not the most effective... I wouldn't trust it 100%, it kinda depends on the guy as well. So if you've never had sex with this guy before, it's very reckless from your part to not take other precautions. Also, if you don't know the person that well, think about stds. yeah he told you he's 100% clean but this is the kind of situation where you can't be naive and believe everything someone says to you.

  • if he doesn't lie about his sexual past and diseases plus if he is good at pull out, it might be fine but there is still little chance that you may get pregnant. It's def safer to wear condom or be on birth control.

  • Don't have sex with him if he's trying to get you to not mature him wear a condom, especially if you've never had sex before. Either wait, make him wear a condom, or find someone else.

  • Kind of, but the risk isn’t worth it. Pre-cum is an issue because it has the potential to carry sperm, although it’s not an actual ejaculation. Best to use a condom anyway, or try some birth control. Nothing is fool proof except for abstinence.

  • The pull out method is a poor means of birth control. There is around a 25% pregnancy rate per year, and you could get pregnant your first time. And that's assuming you can even trust this guy to pull our, or if he's really "clean." You can get a serious sexually transmitted disease the first time you have sex. Understand, that many guys will tell you anything, tell you any lie, to get in you, especially if it's bare.

  • Its better than letting him cum inside you but no, its not effective. Get the morning after pill and use that.

  • I went in raw with my ex when we started dating. All the way through for three years it was raw. We tried a condom to see how it would feel, but it wasn't great. Believe me, it feels 100% better without a condom, but don't trust the precum like others say... I'm lucky, because I don't pre-cum at all.

  • "He told me he would pull out and that he’s 100% clean"
    Are you that stupid?

    No, it does not work very well for preventing pregnancy nor for preventing transmission of stds.

    If your period is regular, the best way is to use the calendar method and have sex on one of your infertile days.

    However, even better is to wait until you turn 18.

  • No it's not 100%. Lots of pregnancies have happened still. Also, our orgasm can come on very quickly and our natural desire/instinct is to just "let go" inside you. It feels the best. So it's VERY hard to pull out in time for these reasons. Don't let him do this if you don't want to risk it.

    • And yes it does feel better for us without a condom, but the risks aren't worth it. And it still feels good with a condom. Also, we guys don't like any "interruptions" no matter how brief. So pulling out is one of them.

  • Never believe that pulling out works. Pre seminal fluid still comes out of the penis and it contains sperm so it can still get you pregnant.

  • It is certainly safer compared to not pulling out, but the rate of success is really poor.

  • So it only sounds safe. Remember it only actually takes one determined little swimmer to leak out and reach an egg.

  • Im a huge fan of the pull oit method. It works if he pulls out.

  • No, The scientific term for a woman who uses this method is "mother". And while condoms are the least reliable form of prophylactic, in terms of preventing pregnancy (the Pill or implants are much more reliable), they are the MOST reliable for preventing STDs.

  • even condom are not 100% safe so how could this would be safe

  • Oh no way

  • Take the pill and hope for the best! But still many guys will flush before they even know it soo i wouldn't take risks

  • No it's not safe

  • Take the pills trust me

  • Whoever you hookup with is your responsibility too kid.

  • Try it, let us know how it goes. Lol

  • Well
