Condoms are put over an erect penis to give protection to both sexual partners from many STDs including: HIV, Syphilis, Gonorrhe, Chlamydia, Herpes and NGU.
There are many varieties of condoms that offer different thicknesses, sensations, colors, and sizes. Try different brands until you find the one that fits you best. Make sure to store condoms in a cool dry place and check the expiration before using one.
Condoms with spermicide (nonoxynol-9) are not recommended for anal sex because the spermicide irritates the anal lining, which makes transmission of HIV and other STDS easier.
This is the most commonly used type of condom and requires water-based or silicon lubricant to prevent breakage. Some people are allergic to latex and cannot use this type of condom.
This is condom does not contain latex and can be used with oil-based and silicon lubricants. These condoms are usually more expensive.
These condoms do not provide protection against STDs.
Putting on a condom the right way takes practice:
Condoms should only be put on an erect penis.
Open the package carefully to avoid tearing the condom.
Hold the tip of the condom between the thumb and forefinger and squeeze out any air.
If the condom does not contain lubricant, put a drop of lubricant about the size of a pea in the tip; be sure to use the correct type of lube for that condom type.
Leave space at the tip of the condom to contain the cum and unroll the condom over the penis until it covers the base.
During sex, check the condom to make sure it hasn’t slipped or torn.
When ready to pull out, hold the condom at the base of the penis and gently take the penis out of the ass. Unroll the condom and throw it away.
Below is a video showing how to correctly put a traditional condom on:
This condom is made of polyurethane and can be used with oil-based and silicon lubricants. To use, the internal ring should be taken out then the condom is inserted into the bottom’s ass with the outer ring let outside. This allows a top to not have to wear a condom on his penis and when properly used, provides protection against STDs.
Lube can be an integral part of sex between men. There are three types:
Water-based lubricants can be used with latex and polyurethane condoms and gloves. They eventually break down and reapplication is needed during a longer play session. These lubes are good for fingering and fucking. Clean up is easy with soap and water.
Silicone-based lubricants can be used with latex or polyurethane condoms and gloves. These lubes last much longer than water-base products and generally do not need to be reapplied once the fun starts. They are good for fingering, fucking, and fisting. They feel greasier and the consistency is usually thin. Clean up is easy with soap and water.
Oil-based lubricants should not be used with latex or polyurethane condoms or gloves. These types of lubes are the longest lasting. They are good for fingering, fucking, and fisting. These products can stain sheets and are harder to clean up.
