Back to condoms, If you use them CORRECTLY every time, you can take charge of your own sexual health and protect your partner, emphasis on “correctly”. This means that it’s possible for you to incorrectly use a condom. In a particular study, 35% of university aged guys said that a condom had slipped off or broken during sex. Accidents do occur right? But they are much less likely to occur if you use condoms the right way.
Here’s what you need to know:
You can order condoms from us at Adam and have it delivered to you. That’s convenience literally at your doorstep.
You need to store them properly because Condoms will become less effective if they get too hot or cold. This means it’d be a really bad idea to store condoms in your glove compartment, bathroom cabinet, refrigerator, or anywhere that gets direct sunlight. Also avoid storing condoms in your wallet. The friction damages the condom and can tear the wrapper. If you do put a condom in your wallet, only do it the day that you think you’ll use it.
Don’t store condoms near sharp objects, like scissors or needles. Instead, keep them in your nightstand or another cool, dry place.
Condoms do expire! Did you know that? Every condom has an expiration date on the wrapper. Check it before you open it. Do NOT use it if it’s past the expiration date. Throw away condoms that have expired.
There’s a right way to open a condom. Do NOT use your teeth or scissors to open condoms. It’s very easy to accidentally tear or cut the condom. Instead, feel where the condom is inside the package, and open the wrapper with your hands.
Putting them on the right way is more complicated than you think.
• Only put condoms on an erect penis.
• Make sure you put the condom on right side out. If you place the condom on your hand, it should look like a small sombrero. The rim should be on the outside, and it should roll easily onto the penis or toy—if there’s resistance, throw the condom out and get a new one.
• Pinch the tip as you roll it on, so there’s enough room for the ejaculate (also called semen, or come/cum).
• Roll the condom on to the penis, to the base.
There’s also a right way to take off condoms.
Hold on to the base of the condom while the penis is being withdrawn. This keeps it from slipping off. Take off the condom BEFORE the penis loses its erection (or goes soft), and do it away from your partner, so there’s no chance of spilling any ejaculate on them. Tie the end, wrap it in a tissue or paper towel, and throw it in a trashcan. Do NOT flush it down the toilet—that will only clog it. Do not reuse condoms.
Do NOT use oil-based lube. Oil-based lube and latex do NOT mix. The oil breaks down the latex. Use water- or silicone-based lube instead.
NEVER double bag. Using two condoms at the same time creates friction and makes it much more likely that the condom will break. In this case, 2 is not better than 1.
It is essential that you use condoms EVERY time, for every sex act. Condoms need to be used correctly EVERY time you have sexual contact in order to effectively prevent pregnancy and protect yourself from STIs. Forgetting any of the above steps makes them less effective. This can be hard when you’re caught up in the moment—especially if you drink or use drugs. STAY SAFE!
