How to Use a Condom Correctly

by RipNRoll Condoms December 26, 2018

RipNRoll shows you how to use a condom correctly. Putting on a condom properly and consistently is the key to safer sex.

If you're not sure how to use a condom or even if you think you know how to, keep reading, you just might learn something. Many people don't know how to put on a condom correctly and consistently every time, and most people don't know that using a condom correctly greatly reduces the failure rate and greatly reduces the chance of the condom breaking. Below, we have made it easy with condom pictures. If you're not sure how a condom unrolls, you should experiment with a condom before ever having sex. Grip, Rip n Roll a few times, practice makes perfect.


First - carefully open the package

1. First of all everyone should know by now that you shouldn't keep your condoms in a hot glove box or in your wallet, condoms do not like heat, as a matter of fact they hate heat! Check the condoms expiration date, as a safeguard, you should never use condoms past the expiration date. Most condoms have a five year shelf life from the date of manufacture. Condoms with spermicide usually only have a 3 year shelf life. Try not to use your teeth to open the wrapper and don't use scissors either you bonehead!!!

2. If you're using a Latex condom, don't ever use oil based lubrication such as skin lotions, baby oil, Vaseline or cold cream - the oil in these products weakens the Latex and will cause the condom to break. Always use water based, silicone or latex compatible lubricants with Latex condoms. If you must use oil based lubricants use polyurethane condoms, these are safe to use with oil based lubes.

If you are in the heat of battle and think you are ready... then the time has come to cover your Captain (Captains at full attention and ready for battle). Carefully "RIP" open your favorite condoms wrapper, being careful not to use your teeth, *place a drop or 2 of your favorite water based lubricant inside the tip of the condom, this will greatly decrease the chances of the condom breaking and will also add more sensation. Never let your Captain touch your partner before he is securely covered.


Second - "Roll" on the protection

  • Make sure your condom is upright to roll, condoms roll on much better this way.. DUH!

  • When you put on the condom, hold the condom by the tip to squeeze out any air. Leave some space at the tip to hold any and all fluids and "ROLL" the rest down to your Captains base.

  • If your Captain is intact (has a foreskin), put the condom on with the foreskin pushed back. After you have Rolled and are covered, push the foreskin forward (toward the tip). This lets the foreskin move without breaking the condom.

  • (Optional but recommended) Place more water based lubricant on the outside of the condom. Remember, "Wetter is Better".

  • If at any time during battle (intercourse) your Captain is ambushed (the condom breaks or comes off), stop immediately and pull out. Wash your Captain and put on a new condom.

  • After your Captain has won his battle (after intercourse), *you should hold the condom at the base and pull out slowly. This should be done while your Captain is still at attention.

  • Throw away the used condom in the trash, not the toilet. If you choose the toilet they will come back to haunt you some day. Trust me, the last thing you want plugging your plumbing is used condoms your plumber will thank you too!

  • Never re-use condoms ( recycled rubbers? ) even if you like to recycle or are one of them "green people" use a new condom every time you have contact, they are not that expensive...really!

So, to sum it all up in the Rip n Roll vernacular....

Rip-It, Grip-it, Roll-it and Dip-It

"Rip n Roll"

And that's how to use a condom.
