I know some of you have contacted me regarding transmission reduction so I was super stocked when a few weeks ago, the cool people at Scroguard contacted me for a product review. I immediately was like “hell yeah!”.
The Scroguard is a latex covering designed to cover everything a condom can’t. It is designed to completely eliminate skin-to-skin contact since the pubic area, base of shaft and scrotum are completely covered. The penis-holder puts it on like underwear, sticks their penis through the hole, puts on a condom so that it ends up under the hole covering, and you’re set. (Condom not included,)
At first we were a bit skeptical, to be honest. It’s made out of latex and I have a latex allergy, so I wasn’t sure how it’d go. I thought it would make it too uncomfortable/noticeable during sex but thankfully I was totally wrong.
Regarding sizing, it fit him just fine. The main thing he didn’t like was that the back is like a thong so it rides up. a lot. He had a wedgie the whole time and it sort of took him out of the moment. He kept saying “maybe people that like butt stuff would enjoy it!”
Besides that though, everything was smooth sailing. It looks a bit silly but once we got going, it was barely noticeable. I was fine with the latex and it protected what needed to be protected. He did notice that the crevice where his groin meets his leg didn’t have as much protection but I think it’s because he didn’t adjust the side buttons after he put it on.
Honestly I think it’s a great product for anyone that wants that full protection. The downside of having to take it out of the bag and put it on is heavily outweighed with how much peace of mind it could bring to someone that’s worried about STC transmission.
Afterwards I asked TS if he’d consider using it again and as long as there wasn’t a wedgie involved, he was all for it.
I also really liked the packaging. They’re disposable and come individually wrapped in a discrete metallic pouch. The mailing package is totally discreet as well and would give no indication that it’s sex-related.
Personally I wouldn’t use it all the time since I worry about trash and the environment but I’d totally be up for using it if I was ever worried about transmission and really wanted the peace of mind.
Here is their link in case anyone is interested in learning more, purchasing it, etc. 

I looked up on the website and saw that one of my favorite herpes bloggers wrote a review of the scroguard so I had to post more about it. Here’s some more info from the website’s FAQ:
Can I throw it away after each use or wash it? How do I wash it and store it?
Scroguard™ is disposable and hand washable. If you want to use the same Scroguard™ more than once, simply:

1. Apply a small amount of soft soap in lukewarm water to Scroguard™ (Don’t scrub it. Doing so might damage the latex.)
2. Rinse it thoroughly.
3. Pat dry with a cloth and hang it up to air-dry at room temperature out of direct sunlight.
4. (Optional) Add some baby powder to prevent it from sticking.
5. Store in a dark, cool, dry place for your next use!
Is Scroguard™ biodegradable?
Scroguard™ is made of latex rubber which is biodegradable as it is a naturally occurring substance made from the sap of rubber trees. The best way to dispose of Scroguard™ is to throw it in the trash so that it can then go to a landfill and breakdown in the ground naturally.
Can Scroguard™ fit different waist and penis sizes?
Absolutely. Scroguard™ is one size fits all. The penis hole is 60mm in diameter, and the waist can fit up to 48 inches. Because Scroguard™ is made of latex, it can stretch to fit even larger size.
As Scroguard™ fits different people differently, if you’re interested in customizing the fit between Scroguard™ and the condom, you can use an adjustable elastic strap. You would put this strap on after you’ve put on both Scroguard™ and the condom.
Here are a couple brands that you can check out that some of our clients have had success with (Neither is affiliated with Scroguard):

Elastic Band (Click here to go to AliExpress.com)
Adjustable Leather Strap (Click here to go to Amazon.com)
Both are adjustable, enabling you to get the tightness and form the barrier according to your preference.
What about waists bigger than 48 inches?
Contact us. If we see enough demand, we would consider producing a larger option.
What different products are you selling?

1 Scroguard for $19.99 + Shipping and Handling for $5.80
3 Scroguard for $49.99 + FREE Shipping and Handling
6 Scroguard for $89.99 + FREE Shipping and Handling
I’m skeptical, but if I ever acquired one I’d be interested in trying it out. I’d like to see how it would fit over a harness or other strap on toy.

Did you know nearly half of the 14 million new HPV infections each year occur among 15-24 year-olds? Prevent HPV-related cancer today. Ask your preteen or teen’s doctor about the HPV vaccine: http://on.nyc.gov/1rrxcLP #VaccinateHPV

Prevent Cancer Today: #VaccinateHPV!
About 79 million people in the U.S. have human papillomavirus (HPV) infection and another 14 million get HPV each year.  Who should get vaccinated and why?
HPV infection can cause genital warts and can lead to cancer many years later
Each year, there are approximately 33,200 HPV-associated cancers in the U.S. – about 20,600 in women and 12,600 in men. HPV cancers include cervical, vaginal, vulvar, anal, penile, and oropharyngeal cancers.
Early vaccination and prevention is critical for cancer prevention, which is why it is especially important for parents to take control and bring their pre-teens and teens to the doctor to receive the vaccine.
The best way to prevent HPV is with a vaccine, which may be up to 99% effective in preventing these cancers.
The vaccine is recommended for all girls and boys between the ages of 11 and 12. It is important to vaccinate your child now, before he or she is old enough to be exposed to HPV. The vaccine may be given to pre-teens as young as 9.
Females aged 13 through 26 and males aged 13 through 21 should be vaccinated if they have not previously received the vaccine.
Men who have sex with men, who are at greater risk for HPV infection, and men with weak immune systems (including those who have HIV/AIDS) aged 22 through 26 should also receive the HPV vaccine.
The vaccine is safe!
Nearly 67 million doses of HPV vaccine have been given in the U.S. through March 2014, and studies provide continued evidence of the vaccine’s safety. The most common side-effects are mild, temporary symptoms, including soreness where the shot was given and fever, headache and nausea.
Save yourself an additional trip to the doctor!
The HPV vaccine is safe to receive with the other recommended adolescent vaccines. Many children also see health care professionals for physicals before school or for participation in sports, camping events, travel and so on. These are all great opportunities for your preteen or teen to get the HPV vaccine.
