•Open the condom packet using the jagged edges, making sure the condom is pushed to one side;

 

•Push the condom out of the packet – don’t pull;

 

•Check the roll of the condom is on the outside;

 

•Squeeze the tip of the condom between thumb and forefingers to remove the air;

 

•Pull back the foreskin if uncircumcised, place condom on the tip of the erect penis;

 

•Roll down the condom to the base of the penis keeping hold of the tip of the condom to keep air out;

 

•After ejaculation (cuming), hold the base of the condom as you withdraw;

 

•Take the condom off away from partner, wrap in tissue and put in the bin. Do not flush the condom down the toilet.

 

Key facts to relay:

  •  

  • Always put the condom on before you start to have penetrative sex (where the penis enters the vagina or anus). If you are having a long sex session, change condoms after a while.

  • Never use two condoms together - whether that is two male condoms or a female and a male condom.

  • Oral sex using a condom can protect against many STIs - try using flavoured condoms for variety.

  • Sex can feel better if you place lubricant in the tip of the condom before putting it on your penis. This is called 'gel-charging'. Only use a small pea shaped amount, any more could cause the condom to slip.

  • Condoms come in a large range of sizes/lengths – so experiment to find one that works for you.

  • Always choose condoms that carry the European CE mark - a recognised safety standard. DO NOT use novelty condoms - they're not safe. Heat can damage condoms so store them in a cool, dry place.

  • Check the expiry date - condoms don't last forever. Get condoms before going on holiday to avoid problems with language and quality.

Lube: Always use a water or silicone based lubricant.  Do not use oil-based products such as Vaseline or baby oil as they will damage the condom.

 

Water & silicone-based lubricant is available through the scheme and should be offered with

every supply of condoms.

 

Internal Condom (Femidom)

Internal condoms are also available on the schemes. Although an internal condom demonstration is not mandatory you may still be asked how to use one. Use this video guide below:

Dental Dam

During oral-vaginal sex or oral-anal sex (rimming) it is also possible to transmit STIs. Dams are also available through the schemes. Dams are thin sheets of latex or non-latex, often flavoured and scented. If they’re used properly they can reduce the risk of catching or spreading STIs.

To use a dam, take it out of the packaging carefully and use a water based lube to prepare the vaginal or anal area. Put the dam over the vaginal or anal area before oral sex. Only lick on one side!

Like a condom, when the dam has been used, wrap it in tissue and put in the bin.

REGISTRATION

How to correctly use a condom must be demonstrated at all first registrations, either by the trained staff member or by the young person.

 

Condoms have a 98% efficiency rate if used correctly, however if used incorrectly this figure drops to only 85%. Condoms are the only method of contraception that protects against both pregnancy and STIs.
