Step 1

The penis should be erect (hard) before putting on a condom. Then begin by placing a rolled up condom on the tip.

Step 2

Squeeze out the air from the end of the condom (to make room for any cum), and unroll the condom to the base of the penis.

Step 3

Use plenty of water-based lubricant on the outside of the condom.

Step 4

After cumming, hold onto the base of the condom firmly (to stop any cum leaking), then pull out. Use each condom only once.

Dispose of the condom in a waste bin. Do not flush it down the toilet.

If a condom breaks
Know about PEP (Post-exposure prophylaxis) in case a condom breaks. It can stop someone getting HIV if it’s taken fast enough (Within 24 hours is best, within 72 hours at the latest).
