Six steps to condom success:
  • Step 1
    Check that the other person actually wants to have sex. Then, check the expiry date of the condom. Expired condoms can break easily, and no one wants that. Also, make sure it’s stated on the packaging that it meets Australian standards.
  • Step 2
    Open the packet carefully; you might be tempted to tear it open in a fit of passion with your teeth, but that could easily damage the condom. Save the biting for later.
  • Step 3
    Hold the tip of the condom to remove any air and roll it down to the base of the erect penis (or sex toy if you’re using one). If it’s hard to roll down, there’s a chance it’s inside out. Such an easy mistake to make – just grab another and start again. Don’t reuse that one as there’s a chance there’s a little pre-cum on it.
  • Step 4
    For sex with more oooo than arrggghhh, put some water-based lubricant on the outside of the condom. This reduces the risk of the condom breaking and also increases the pleasure factor. Don’t use oil-based lubricants such as Vaseline; these can cause the condom to break.
  • Step 5
    When you’re finished, make sure the penis is withdrawn while still erect. Hold onto the base of the condom while you’re withdrawing so it doesn’t slip off and ruin all your good work so far.
  • Step 6
    Remove the condom, tie a knot at the end, wrap it in a tissue and put it in the bin. Easy as.
