The facts about condoms!
Condoms and female condoms are the only forms of contraception that also protect against STI's (sexually transmitted infections). They are available in different sizes, flavours and types, and some can be used to help delay a man's orgasm or increase pleasure for both of you.
It's easy to use a condom properly. Always carry condoms in a tin or condom case rather than your wallet or bag, as otherwise you could damage them. Read the condom pack instructions and check the expiry date.
Either partner can put the condom on but wash your hands first: this helps keep things hygienic and, if you've been playing with massage oil or anything else fatty (i.e. ice cream) it removes oils that might otherwise cause the condom to break.
Put the condom on before you get down to it, so you can writhe away safely to your heart's content during foreplay (don't wait too long though - you don't want the condom to dry out).
Tear the wrapper open from the serrated edge. Watch out for fingernails and sharp objects like jewellery and body piercings - you don't want to tear it.
