How To Put On A Condom
The first thing you need to know is how to put on a condom correctly. It’s really easy to do, so let’s go over the four steps in detail.
How do I use a condom?
The first thing you want to do is make sure your penis is erected (hard) before you roll on a condom. The condom should be put on before it touches your partner’s genital area or their mouth. It should also be worn for the whole duration of having sex. This is the only way to help protect you against pregnancy and STDs (including ones caused by pre-ejaculation).
- Start to peel the wrapper carefully so you do not damage the condom. Do NOT use your teeth or scissors to do this.
- The rim of the condom should be on the outside when you take it out of the package. Do not reverse or flip up the condom while you put it on. You can unroll the condom a little bit to see if it can be easily rolled down.
- Pinch the top part of the condom and place it over the head of your penis. Leave a little space at the top. This allows the sperm to be collected at the top.
- All you have to do now is unroll the condom all the way down to the bottom. You can add a few drops of lubricant to the end of the condom once it is on.
To remove the condom, simply holy the rim of the condom and slowly pull the penis out of your partners body. You would want to do this before your penis goes soft and the condom becomes loose. If this happens, semen can come out of the condom.
Move away from your partner so you don’t get semen on them and remove the condom. Wrap the condom with the original wrapping or with a tissue and throw it in the garbage. Do not flush condoms down the toilet.
Tips on how to put on a Condom
Wearing a condom every time you have sex and storing them correctly is very important.
- The first thing you want to do is check the expiry date on the condom. Even though condoms last a very long time, checking the expiration date is very important.
- Next thing to look out for is any holes or punctures in the condoms. If you feel that the condom is stiff, sticky and dry simply throw it away.
- Store your condoms in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. Do not keep them in your bathroom, pocket or car for longer than one month. This is because excessive moisture and heat can damage the condoms.
Other useful tips on how to put on a condom:
- If you are uncircumcised, it might be conformable to pull back the foreskin before you place the condom on. This is up to you and whatever you feel more conformable with.
- Adding a few drops of lubricant can keep the condom from breaking and feeling better.
- Do not put any sorts of oils on condoms. These include cooking oil, butter, lotion, baby oil or even jelly (Vaseline).
Make sure you always use a new condom when you have sex, condoms are not meant to be reused more than once. If your penis goes soft, simply remove the condom and apply another condom. This is more normally than you think, do not worry about this.
