How to Put on a Condom
You are going to want to watch this! The inimitable Ms. Eda Bagel takes you through the proper steps to putting on an external condom. Special thanks to Greenworks Video, Fascinations, and, of course, the lovely Ms. Eda Bagel.
Ms. Eda Bagel’s recipe for proper condom use:
- Make sure the condom is lubricated and made of either latex, polyurethane, or polyisoprene.
- Check the expiration date. Squeeze the package to make sure there is a pillow of air. This indicates the condom is undamaged.
- Carefully open the package; do not use teeth or scissors.
- Position the condom so it resembles a sombrero hat.
- Squeeze a few drops of water or silicone-based lubricant inside the tip of the condom. Do not use oil-based lubricants.
- Pinch the condom at its tip, leaving a 1/2 inch space for semen to collect. Make sure to squeeze out any air.
- Put the condom on the head of an erect penis. If this penis is uncircumcised, pull back the foreskin before putting on the condom. Then, unroll the condom to the base of the penis.
- Smooth out any air pockets between the condom and the penis.
- Add lubrication to the outside of the condom, and as needed throughout intercourse.
- Use a new condom between anal and vaginal sex, as well as between different sexual partners.
- Throughout intercourse, check to make sure the condom remains on the penis.
- When done with intercourse, withdraw the erect penis gently while holding the rim of the condom at the base of the penis.
- Gently roll the condom off the penis. Do this away from your partner’s body.
- Tie a knot at the end of the condom, wrap in tissue, and throw it away in the trash.
