If you want your condom to work, you should use it correctly. Fortunately, this is really easy. Here is what you need to know.
How can I use a condom?
Wrap the condom when the penis is erect (hard), but before it touches your partner’s mouth or genital area (vulva, vagina, anus, buttocks and upper thighs) – wear it the whole time you have sex. This helps protect you from sexually transmitted diseases that are transmitted by touching the skin. It also prevents contact with ejaculation (before ejaculation), which can have spores from sexually transmitted diseases and rarely contains sperms that can cause pregnancy.
- The condom lasts for a long time, but you should always check the expiration date printed on the packaging or box. Open the condom carefully so as not to damage it – do not use your teeth or scissors.
- Make sure the condoms are ready to wrap on the right path: the rim should be outside so that it looks like a small-cap, and it will be removed easily. You can unregister it a little bit before placing it to make sure it’s on the right side. If you accidentally put the condom inside out, don’t flip it over and reuse it – get a new condom.
- Pinch the tip of the condom and place it on top of your penis. Leave a little space at the top to collect the semen (VP). If you are not circumcised, it may be more comfortable to pull the foreskin back before placing the condom on the tip of the penis and wrap it.
- Loosen the condom under the penis penis until it reaches the base.
You can put a few drops of water-based or silicone lubricating oil inside the tip of the condom before wrapping it. You can also add more lubrication to the outside of the condom after it’s on your penis. (Water-based or silicone lube can make sex feel better, and help prevent condom breakage.)
- After ejaculation (cum), stick to the edge of the condom and pull your penis out of your partner’s body. Do this before your penis becomes soft, so the condom does not separate and leaves semen
- Carefully remove the condom away from your partner, in order not to accidentally spill the semen. Put the condom away in the trash – don’t flush it out of the toilet (it can clog the tubes).
You cannot reuse a condom. Put in your new condom every time you have vaginal, oral, or anal sex. You should also use a new condom if you switch from one gender to another (like anal to vagina).
Don’t worry if you lose an erection (the penis becomes soft) while wearing a condom – this is very common. If this happens you should change the condom. Just take off the condom, and once your penis becomes hard again, wrap it again.
What are some tips for using condoms?
Caring for a good condom and using it properly every time you have sex is essential.
Store your condom in a cool, dry place, away from sharp objects and direct sunlight. Do not keep it in your pocket, car or bathroom for long periods of time (more than one month), because excess heat and moisture can damage condoms over time.
Always check the expiration date and ensure there are no holes in the package before opening the condom – you should be able to feel a small air bubble when you press on the cap. If the condom is torn, dry, hard, or sticky, throw it away.
Since you must use a new condom every time you have sex or get a new erection, it is a good idea to keep your supplies. Get a condom nearby before things start to heat up, so it’s easy to grab it without interrupting the procedure.
Most male condoms come pre-lubricated, but adding an extra silicone or silicone loop can make the condom feel comfortable and help prevent it from breaking. Place a few drops on top of the penis or inside the tip of the condom before wrapping it, and / or spread it on the outside of the condom as soon as you wear it.
Do not use anything that has oil in it with a latex condom, such as petroleum jelly (Vaseline), lotion, baby oil, butter, or cooking oils. The oil destroys the condom and may break.
It’s easy to make condoms fun and enjoyable – all it takes is a little creativity and a positive attitude! For many people, condoms are a natural part of foreplay. Bring your partner around the condom, then use the lubricant, stimulate each other and say exciting things while applying the condom, making things hot and safe. Additionally, your knowledge of protecting each other from pregnancy and / or sexually transmitted diseases allows everyone to relax and focus on feeling satisfied.
