When it comes to enjoying sex with safety and pleasure, male condoms are an essential tool. Not only do they protect you from STIs and HIV, but they can also add an extra layer of sensation to your sexual encounters. Here’s how to use them correctly and how to choose the right type for you and your partner.

How to put on and take off a condom:
First, make sure the condom is not expired and the wrapper is not damaged. Open the package carefully, without using your teeth or scissors. With the erect penis, pinch the tip of the condom to leave space for the semen and unroll it to the base of the penis. Use water-based or silicone-based lubricant to reduce friction and increase pleasure during anal penetration. After ejaculation, hold the condom at the base while withdrawing the penis to prevent it from slipping off and spilling the contents. Dispose of it in the trash, not the toilet.

Types of condoms:
Condoms come in different materials, such as latex, polyurethane, and polyisoprene. Latex condoms are the most common, but if you have an allergy, opt for polyurethane or polyisoprene. There are also textured, ultra-thin, and flavored and colored condoms. Experiment to find the one you like the most.

Use of lubricants:
For anal penetration, lubricant is essential. Opt for water-based or silicone-based lubricants. Avoid oil-based ones, as they can damage the condom and increase the risk of breakage.

Care and storage:
Store condoms in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and heat. Don’t keep them in your wallet for too long, as friction and heat can weaken them.

Enjoying sex with a condom doesn’t have to be less pleasurable. On the contrary, knowing that you are protected allows you to relax and enjoy the moment more. Experiment with different types and find the one that suits you best. Remember, safe sex is a key component of adult enjoyment.
