There has been some misinformation floating around for years about condoms having small holes in them which doesn't block out viruses, etc. I have heard the figure of "5 microns" as the hole size. Relatively speaking, that is a HUGE hole!!

This is fortunately not true.
Here is one link regarding the confusion and misinfo:

(and happens to be an enjoyable argument to observe, heh)



Here is a great site about herpes pathology:
