Everything you need to know about the condom
Bright and delightful sex is the basis of a person's emotional health, and protected sex is a guarantee of the physical health of each partner. Today, condoms are the most common method of contraception. We suggest that you familiarize yourself with some basic information that is important to know about condoms and their correct use, as it protects your sex life.
Condoms are the most reliable means of protection against sexually transmitted diseases and HIV infection; in addition, condoms protect against unwanted pregnancies. The effectiveness of contraception with a condom is close to 100%.
Modern condoms are most often made from natural latex obtained from the sap of the Hevea tree, which grows mainly in Southeast Asia. Therefore, most of the various brands are made in the homeland of high-quality latex - in Malaysia, Thailand, India, Korea, China.
Condoms are also made from synthetic materials such as polyurethane and polyisoprene. The main thing is that they are hypoallergenic since they do not contain the protein that is found in natural latex and can cause allergies.
There are a great many different types of condoms, and each of them has its own properties and characteristics. Most often, condoms differ in such parameters as material, shape, size, wall thickness, texture, types of condom lubricants, purpose and colour.
All condoms are electronically tested in factories and are a reliable method of protection, therefore, the ineffectiveness (rupture, slippage) of condoms is most often due to their improper use, and not to the quality of latex and the fault of the manufacturer.
Correct use of condoms will provide maximum protection
- The condom is a disposable product.
- Before use, pay attention to the expiration date, as well as the integrity of the packaging. Do not use a condom whose packaging has been damaged or has obvious signs that it is damaged (stickiness, unpleasant odour, discolouration), regardless of the stated expiration date.
- Do not carry condoms in pockets where they can become deformed (for example, back pockets of trousers and jeans). We recommend storing the condom in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.
- Choose a condom of your own size - too small ones tend to break, and too large condoms slip off.
- When opening the package, do not use sharp objects such as knives and scissors, and do not damage the condom with your teeth or sharp nails.
- The condom must remain on the penis during the entire intercourse. If the condom slips off, a new one must be used before intercourse continues.
- If you are using a latex condom, use a water-based lubricant, as fat-based lubricants (petroleum jelly, baby cream, hand cream, etc.) break down latex, which can easily cause the condom to break.
- If you are allergic to natural latex, you can use condoms made from other materials, such as polyurethane or isoprene. However, we recommend that you seek the advice of a doctor.
- Some condoms are treated with the spermicidal lubricant Nonoxynol-9, which on rare occasions can cause irritation and allergies. We recommend that you see your doctor if you experience these symptoms.
In addition to using a condom, we also recommend using intimate gels and lubricants for better glide and comfort, especially during anal intercourse.
Indulge in voluptuous love, have delicious sex, but do it safely, use a condom.
