How to Use Condoms

Before sex

  • Make sure your condom has the British Standard Kitemark (this means the condom has been safety tested) or the CE European standard mark (meaning the factory has been tested).
  • Check the expiry date of the condom.
  • Open the package carefully (don’t use your teeth!)
  • Make sure the tip is pointing up and the ring is on the outside.
  • Pinch the tip and keep it pinched as you place the condom on the erect penis or sex toy.
  • Place the condom on an erect penis or sex toy and roll it as far down as it will go.
  • The condom should be removed before the penis has totally lost the erection otherwise the contents may spill out.

After sex

  • When finished, hold on to the bottom of the condom when withdrawing the penis, this stops the condom slipping off.
  • Make sure no semen spills out by tying a knot in the condom. Put it in a bin, not the toilet.
  • If you have sex again, use a new condom.
