How To Have Sex With Condoms
Understanding how to have sex with condoms can help protect you against contracting sexually transmitted diseases from your partner and the risk of unplanned pregnancy. When you are not worried about sexually transmitted diseases or pregnancy, then you can focus more on sexual pleasure for you and your partner.
To complete this task, you need:
- Try out a few brands. Condoms come in different lengths and widths. They might not all fit your erect penis comfortably, and manufacturers do provide different sizes to accommodate this. If one doesn’t work, try another.
- Use a new condom for each sexual encounter. Condoms are not reusable. To safely have sex with condoms, you need to use a new one each time.
- Check the date. All condoms have an expiration date printed on the outside of the package. Never use an expired condom for sex.
- Tear open the condom package. Be extra careful when opening the package. If you tear or damage the condom, you cannot use it for sex.
- Roll it on. The condom can be fitted over the top of an erect penis. As you unroll it to cover the penis shaft, gently squeeze the top portion of the condom where air can get trapped. If there is air in the condom, it is more likely to break during intercourse. Run your hands along the shaft of the penis once the condom is on to make sure there are no air bubbles, rips or tears. The bottom of the condom should be at the base of the penis shaft.
- Apply lubrication and have sex as normal. If you’re not using a lubricated condom, you can apply lubrication to help enhance the sexual experience of your partner. Lubrication should always be applied before anal sex. Once lubrication is applied, you can have sex as you normally would.
- Roll the condom off carefully after sex. To make sure no sperm gets out, keep a firm grip on the condom as you unroll it. Then, pull it off gently. Tie the end securely before throwing it in the trash.
Condoms need to be stored correctly. Keep them in a dark, cool area where they won’t be in direct sunlight or exposed to extremes in temperature. This will help keep them as effective as possible for protecting against unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.
