TRADITIONAL CONDOMS

Traditional Condoms
  • Don’t unroll the condom first. Condoms are packaged neatly rolled up for a reason – they are easier to apply safely and intact.

  • We can’t overemphasize the importance of wearing the right size condom. If a condom is too large, it will feel uncomfortable for both partners and possibly slip off during intercourse. When a condom is too small, it may rip or tear. Both scenarios will not only ruin the moment, they will leave you unprotected.

  • When opening the condom package, take care not to damage the condom itself. Avoid using sharp objects (including teeth!) or snagging the condom on jewelry or long fingernails.

  • As you apply the condom, leave a bit of extra room at the tip. There should be enough space at the tip to provide comfort and accommodate semen.

  • When rolling on a condom, gently squeeze out excess air to prevent a bubble at the tip, and then slowly unroll the condom down to the base of the penis.

  • Applying extra lubrication has multiple benefits, including increasing sensitivity and pleasure for all partners and preventing the condom from tearing from friction. While some condoms are lubricated, the amount of lube applied is minimal and may not last through an entire session. To increase sensation for the insertive partner, add a drop or two of water or silicone-based lubricant to the inside of the condom before putting it on. Then apply a lubricant to the outside of the condom for extra glide.

  • Never use oil based lubricants with condoms! Oil based lubricants can break down the materials from which condoms are made (especially latex!). Be sure to always use water or silicone-based lubricant instead.

  • Never reuse a condom, ever.

  • Condoms should be stored in a dry, cool environment and out of direct sunlight or other sources of heat which can degrade the condom. Do not keep condoms in a wallet unless you plan to use them immediately (ie. that day/night). The best places to store condoms include a nightstand or dresser drawer, medicine cabinet, or a secure container in your purse or bag.
