How to put on a condom.

How to put on a condom:

The goal is to use a condom for each and every sex act. To that end, your condom needs to feel good. Really good. Clearly, fit is key.

You don't need a condom size chart to determine what size you need. They can be confusing, inaccurate and don’t give you the right information to explore condoms. Which is the leading way to find a condom that you will actually enjoy using. (And yes, read a few reviews of our products and you’ll see how happy our customers are with our selection.)

Instead use our clever trick to answer: How do I find a condom that fits me? Once you’ve determined the best condoms for you, you may want to know how to put a condom on.

Practice makes perfect. If the penis belongs to you, we suggest trying condom on solo first. You'll then know your condom fits and is properly installed prior to take off.

Okay the basics: How do I use a condom?

1.  You or your partner will want to roll the condom on when once the penis in question is hard (erect), but BEFORE it touches your partner’s mouth or any genital area (these include: the vulva and vagina, the anus, buttocks, and upper thighs).  Next, this might seem obvious, but we’ll say it again: The condom needs to be worn the entire time you’re having sex.

Not only will this help to protect you from STIs (also known as STDs) transmitted through skin-to-skin contact, it also prevents contact with pre-ejaculate (pre-cum), which can have sexually transmitted organisms (germs) and may sometimes contain sperm that can cause infection or pregnancy.

2.  Your condoms should last several years, but you should make it a habit to check the expiration (expiry) date printed on the wrapper before use. Carefully open condom foils, so you don’t damage them. Don’t use sharp objects to open them (these include: keys, your teeth, pocket knives or scissors). 

3.  You’ll want to roll the condom on the right way. Think about it this way, the rim should be on the outside and it will look like a little hat. Try unrolling is a little way. It should unroll very easily. Then you will know it is the right side out. Please remember: Safety first! If you accidentally begin putting a condom on inside out, you need to start over with a new condom. Do NOT flip it around and reuse it.

4.  The next step is to pinch the tip of the condom and place it on the head of the penis. Leave some room at the top to collect semen. If you’re uncircumcised, it may be more comfortable (and pleasurable) to pull your foreskin back before placing the condom on the tip of the penis and then roll it down.

5.  Unroll the condom down the shaft of the penis all the way to the base.

PRO-TIP: Put a few drops of high quality lubricant (lube) inside the condom tip before you roll it on. You should also add more lube to the outside of the condom after it's unrolled down the shaft. (Lube can make sex feel much better with condoms. It also helps condoms from breaking –especially ultra thin condoms.)

6.  You are officially ready to #GetLucky! Enjoy.

7.  After you ejaculate (cum), hold onto the base of the condom and pull your penis out of the receiving partner’s body. Do this BEFORE the penis goes soft, so the condom doesn’t get too loose and let any semen out.

8.  Carefully take off the condom away from your partner so you don’t accidentally spill semen on them. Throw the condom away in the garbage — don’t flush it down the toilet (it can clog pipes). You can discreetly wrap the used condom and its wrapper in toilet paper and throw them in the trash (rubbish bin).

A few important condom facts to remember:

  • You can NOT reuse condoms. Ever. (Even if you wash them, especially if you wash them. Seriously, this should not be a thing.) Do not use the same condom more than once.

    Use a new condom every time you have vaginal, oral, or anal sex. You should also use a new condom if you switch from one kind of sex to another (like if you start with vaginal and move to  anal).

    If the penis gets soft and the erection is lost (which does happen sometimes while wearing a condom, especially if your condom isn’t the perfect fit) you should put on a new condom. Simply take the condom off, and once the penis is hard again, roll on a new one.
