Some Men Remove Condoms Without Partner’s Consent

Some Men Remove Condoms Without Partner’s Consent“Stealthing” – the removal of a condom without a partner’s consent - is a growing concern that leaves victims feeling betrayed, anxious, and violated.

Victims may also feel that their trust has been violated, that they have been tricked. They may have consented to sex with a condom, but not to condomless sex.
