Condoms and You
We understand that birth control is a subject that changes across Christianity. SinFreeToys.com understands the advocacy for abstinence, however, we feel that education on Condom use could help those Christians who find themselves abstaining from abstinence. Condoms, even in a relationship with your partner, can not only prevent unwanted pregnancy but can also prevent the transmission of sexual related diseases like AIDS.
We appreciate that many of you may already know how to use a condom and how they work, but a refresher course is never a bad idea to tune up your methods. Did you know that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration now recommends that you use a personal lubricant with condoms to help prevent tears and breaks. Lubricants also increase the effectiveness of female condoms. With this recommendation, using the right lubricant is crucial because not all are latex friendly.. We’ll get into that and some proper techniques below.
Male Condom Use
- The very first rule for male condom use is to be diligent about opening the package. NEVER tear the condom open with your teeth, sharp objects or even your fingernails. The potential to tear the condom is huge. Be gentle and tear from one corner to the end.
- Most modern condoms have a reservoir tip that you can pinch with your fingers.If there isn’t one, pinch the tip of the condom with your fingers and place the condom over an erect penis. Once the condom is on the tip of the penis, roll the entire condom down the full length of the shaft.
- Never pull the condom down and push your penis inside of it. You can easily tear the condom, defeating its one sole purpose. If you are uncircumcised, pull the foreskin back first
- Always remove your penis from your partner before your penis is flaccid as the condom can slip off. Hold the condom in place at the rim to avoid any spilling of that baby making juice.
- Being sly about throwing a condom away is an art. Don’t be a jerk and just fling it where-ever. This isn’t a hazmat situation but please, don’t just toss it on the floor or night stand. Get up and wrap it in toilet paper and throw it in the trashcan. Your partner would much rather see something that looks like a booger rag in the trashcan than a loose used condom, if you want any shot of coming back. You might want to wash your hands as well to get the lubricants off.
Its that easy. These simple steps and a dollar or two can save you a fortune in either child care or medical care and I dont have an article for changing diapers….on a baby.
Female Condom Use
- The very first rule for female condom use is to be diligent about opening the package. NEVER tear the condom open with your teeth, sharp objects or even your fingernails. The potential to tear the condom is huge. Be gentle and tear from one corner to the end.
- When you are ready to insert your condom try and sit, lie down, or raise a leg so that you are comfortable and are balanced.
- Hold the interior ring and squeeze and it will become long and narrow. Once it reaches this shape, insert it into your vagina. Push the ring as far as it will go.
- The outer ring remains on the outside of the vagina.
- Its best to help your partner when using a female condom. Using plenty of lubricants will help keep the condom in place, so guide your partner into the vaginal area.
- Without getting obscene, you now have a little reservoir of your partners fluid; don’t stand up. Remove the condom first by squeezing the ring and pulling it out of your vagina.
- Being sly about throwing a condom away is an art. Don’t be gross and just fling it where-ever. This isn’t a hazmat situation but please, don’t just toss it on the floor or night stand. Get up and wrap it in toilet paper and throw it in the trashcan. Your partner would much rather see something that looks like a booger rag in the trashcan than a loose used condom, especially if you want any shot of coming back for a repeat interlude. You might want to wash your hands as well to get the lubricants off.
- Use water-based or silicone lubricants with your latex condoms. Oil-based lubricants damage latex condoms.
- Check your lubricant to see if it is “latex” friendly. The bottle should say. If it contains any oil, you should not use it. Baby Oil is a prime example of what not to use.
- Store condoms in a cool, dry place. Overheated condoms, ones left in your car on a hot day, can make them brittle and dry out. Never keep them in your pocket (sharp objects make holes), glove box/car (heat) or by a window.
- Check expiration dates. Condoms have a shelf life and will expire!
- Use a condom only once.
- DO NOT use condoms with Nonoxynol 9. Recently, this spermicide has popular allergic reactions. An allergic reaction could cause a skin fissure open to the transmission of HIV and other STD’s
- Don’t use a condom if it sticks to your finger, is dry and brittle, or the package has been damaged.
- Flavored condoms are meant for oral sex ONLY. They will not assist you with sexual penetration other than Oral.
The biggest rule… BE SAFE and HAVE FUN!
