Using Condoms


Condomology
You should use a condom during each sexual encounter to help protect against HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Using more than one condom at a time does not double or triple your protection. In fact, it has the opposite effect because the rubbers/plastics rub together and can rip. There are different kinds of male condoms – lubricated, colored, flavored, ribbed, extra-large, snug fit, etc. Also, latex or polyurethane male condoms are highly recommended for safer sex. Polyurethane male condoms are a good option for those allergic to latex. Animal skin condoms are NOT recommended because they do not protect against HIV and some other STDs.

Using a Male Condom

  • Put the condom on as soon as the penis is hard.
  • Before opening the condom package, check the expiration date.
  • Check the condom for air pockets by feeling the package with your fingers. If it’s flat, toss it and get another. If it feels like a pillow, then it’s good to be used.
  • Open the package with care by using the pads of your fingers. Do not use scissors, your teeth, nails or any other sharp object. Be sure not to tear the condom.
  • Make sure the “ring” of the condom is on the outside.
  • Pinch the tip to squeeze the air out. This leaves a space for the semen (cum) to be deposited. If uncircumcised, pull back foreskin.
  • Keep holding the tip. Roll the condom down to the base of the penis.
  • After sex, pull out slowly while the penis is still hard. Hold the base of the condom while pulling out.
  • Slide the condom off. Be careful not to spill the semen (cum).
  • Throw the condom away. Never use the same condom more than once.
  • Note: The Female FC2 Condom can be used by men for anal sex

  • You can put in the FC2 up to 2 hours before you have sex.
  • The man does not have to have an erection for FC2 to be used which can enhance couple intimacy.

Instructions on How to Use a FC2 Female Condom


No “double-bagging” – don’t use the FC2 and a male condom at the same time

  • Open the packet and locate the two rings.
  • The smaller of the two rings will be inserted into the vagina*.
  • To insert the FC2 female condom, squeeze the small ring so that it can be inserted inside the vagina.
  • Insert the small ring into the vagina.
  • Use your index finger to ensure that the condom is inserted by pushing the ring and the condom inside the vagina until it snaps in place. Insertion of the FC2 condom is similar that of a tampon – you will know when it is in place. Once inserted, the outer ring (the large ring) hangs outside and will receive the penis.
  • The female FC2 condom can be inserted up to two hours before intercourse.
  • When you are ready to engage in intercourse, it is important to guide the penis INSIDE the ring.
  • After intercourse, and after your partner pulls out, twist the outer ring to hold semen (cum) inside the condom (and to avoid spillage) and then pull the condom out.
  • Use only one female FC2 condom per encounter and throw it away when done. Do not use the same condom more than once.
  • *NOTE: The female FC2 condom can also be used for anal sex. To use the female FC2 condom for anal sex, follow all the steps above; however, be sure to remove the small ring before inserting the condom into the anus.
  • Start over with a new FC2 if:
    • Outer ring slips inside the vagina
    • Penis goes outside of the condom instead of inside
    • FC2 breaks
