Do YOU know how to use a condom???
Check your Knowledge with these Steps.
Step 1: Check the individually wrapped condom for an expiration date.
- It should contain a month and a year. The condom is good for the entire month. If the condom has already expired, toss it! It’s no good. If the condom is still, good proceed to step two.
Step 2: Check for an air bubble.
-do this by holding the condom between your index finger and thumb, slightly pinch the package and feel for the air bubble. If there is no air bubble this means that there is a hole or some type of damage to the wrapper and the condom should not be used. If there is an air bubble go ahead to step three!
Step 3: Open the condom.
-Open the condom by tearing one of the perforated edges with your fingers. It is important to note that you should never use your teeth, scissors, or any other cutting devices. The condom wrapper is easy to open and you don’t want to risk damaging the condom. The object is to keep it in tact and in good working order. Move on to step four.
Step 4: “Look for the hat”
-Before attempting to put on the condom you must check to make sure you’re putting it on correctly. To do so, simply look for the hat- the reservoir tip and the “brim” of the condom should form a little hat. Once you see this, move on to step five.
Step 5: Put the condom on.
-To do this, slightly pinch the tip of the condom at the reservoir (About an inch is good). Place the condom on the top of the penis and roll the condom down to the base of the penis. Make sure to cover as much of the penis as possible.

Step 6: Hold the base of the penis and the end of the condom as you “pull out”
-This is to make sure the condom doesn’t fall off the penis
Step 7: Turn in a different direction than your partner and remove the condom from the penis.
-Twist the condom or tie a knot in the end so that none of the fluids inside spill out.
Step 8: Dispose of the condom
- Throw it away in the garbage. You may wrap it in some tissue or carefully stuff it in its original package. DO NOT FLUSH!
