ALWAYS USE CONDOMS!
If you are not using condoms, you
are not having safer sex. You can
get free condoms at community centres
and agencies, AIDS service organizations
and health clinics.
How do I use a condom?
Putting a condom on a penis:
- Take the condom out of the wrapper
carefully (watch out that your fingernails
dont tear the condom).
- Put a drop of lube inside the
condom or on the head of your penis
before putting on the condom-not
too much, you dont want that
condom to slip off!
- Pinch the tip of the condom.
- Roll the condom down your penis.
- Use plenty of water-based lube
outside the condom, NOT oil-based
stuff like Vaseline or baby oil
because these weaken the latex condom
and may cause it to break.
Use flavoured condoms for blow
jobs and going down on a woman (licking
and kissing around her vagina). Theyre
OK for sex as long as you are not
sensitive/allergic to the flavouring.
All condom packages should have an
expiry date. You should NOT use the
condom after this date. Throw them
away if the date has passed. Never
store condoms in direct sunlight or
in places that are very hot or cold.
Putting condoms in a drawer beside
your bed could make it easier for
you to use them!
Check out different sizes and thickness.
Some condoms are thinner than others;
some are wider. Find one thats
comfortable and the right fit for
Ladies, you can wear condoms too!
You can also use a female condom
to make sure you are protected. The
female condom has two flexible rings,
one on the top and one on the bottom
(where its open). Here is how
to use it:
- Put the top ring into your vagina
to cover your cervix (this is an
organ inside your vagina).
- The bottom ring stays outside
of your vagina. You can put it in
minutes or hours before you have
sex, but dont leave it in
for too long because it can cause
yeast infections or TSS (Toxic Shock
IMPORTANT: A female condom also fits
into your butt hole and both guys
and gals can use it for anal sex.
