How to Use a Condom

By Ksenia Sobchak

Safe sex is always advised especially if you have multiple partners. However, wearing an ill fitting condom does nothing to prevent you from contracting STIs. For those who like anal sex, condoms are always advised even if you are monogamous. This is because the anal cavity is laden with bacteria that may be harmful if they find their way into your bloodstream through a small cut on the penis. Even the tiniest of cuts may cause untold damage.

Condoms come in various sizes and options, making it sometimes a bit hard to choose the perfect one for you. However, the first step is measuring your dick for the right fit.


This is the easiest part. To start off, make sure you have a roll of tissue on hand or even better, just the toilet paper roll. While your penis is erect, put it through the tunnel. If there is room, it is advised you pick the smaller size. If there is just enough room, the standard size condom is for you. If you can barely fit through, go with the larger size.

Taking measurements prevents you from choosing a condom that slips off during sex or getting a condom that ends up cutting off your blood supply. A perfect fit allows you to enjoy every second of your stroking session until the very powerfully orgasmic end.

Thick or Thin

Condoms vary in thickness. Although it may be by a fraction of a mm, this difference is great for some people. The thin condoms almost feel like you are going in raw, but still protected. Some people enjoy this particular feeling and so they opt for the thin condoms. However, thin condoms are not advised for anal sex as the friction level is a bit higher and this may lead to it ripping or tearing.

If you have extra sensitivity, the thicker condoms may be for you. They allow you to last longer and still enjoy powerful sensations.

Condom Texture

The surface textures of condoms vary from condom to condom. While the classic smooth surface works for so many people, there are those that crave a bit more intensity with every stroke. The textures include; ribbed, dotted, and twisted, just to name a few. The texture makes your partner feel every stroke with added intensity, making sex with a condom still feel extremely orgasmic.

Whichever your choice, each condom promises to produce a different sensation and this gives you the perfect chance to switch up just to enjoy what each has to offer.

Flavored vs Non Flavored Condoms

The original latex smell so characteristic of condoms is a huge turn off for some people. For this reason, the flavored condoms come to the rescue. Flavored condoms have a great taste and a scent that is very appealing to the senses. This gives the session and extra sensory stimulation that gets the game going more pleasantly. Flavored condoms are also great for safe oral sex. They combine the pleasant taste with safe sex, ensuring that both the giver and the recipient have a great time.

Using the Condom

Once you have made your choice, it is time to indulge in your play;

  • Use a new condom for every sex act. Lesions, pre-ejaculate secretions, semen, vaginal secretions and blood can all transmit infectious organisms.
  • Tear open the package carefully. Do not use fingernails, teeth, scissors or anything that can damage the condom.
  • Before any sexual contact, place the condom on the head of the erect penis. Be sure the rolled-up ring is on the outside. And leave space at tip to hold semen when you come.
  • Squeeze tip gently so no air is trapped inside. Hold tip while you unroll condom all the way to the base of the erect penis. If the condom doesn't unroll, it may be on backwards, damaged or too old. Throw it away and start over with a new condom.
  • Immediately after ejaculation, hold the condom in place and withdraw the penis while it is still erect. Avoid spilling semen.
  • Dispose of a used condom by wrapping it in tissue and throwing it in the trash. Wash your hands and genitals and surrounding areas with soap and water.
