Step by step
Correct condom use
ALL YOU NEED IS TO FOLLOW YOUR INSTINCTS!
It really is easy. With a little practice, it happens almost by itself. So here are a few tips for the before and after. AND: Things aren't just getting simpler for couples, but many things are also getting better...
TEAR OPEN THE SEALED WRAPPER - UNPACKING THE CONDOM
Tear open the sealed wrapper carefully at the indented edge. Please note that condoms can be damaged by fingernails, jewellery and piercings in intimate areas. When in doubt, such as when a sealed wrapper is damaged, throw the condom away and use a new one.
BEFORE SEX - UNROLLING THE CONDOM
Roll the condom down the erect penis before the penis comes into contact with the partner’s body. Pull the foreskin back completely, gently press together the reservoir tip with your thumb and forefinger, place the condom on the glans with the rolling edge facing outwards and roll it down completely.
AFTER SEX - HOLDING THE CONDOM IN PLACE
If the penis starts to relax, the condom slips or indeed tightens (danger of bursting), pull the penis out. Hold the condom at the base of the penis so that it does not slip off. If the condom is punctured or torn after use, consult a doctor as soon as possible but certainly within 72 hours.
What if it’s not gliding well?
Don't panic! Simply try using an extra moist condom (such as Ritex IDEAL) or an extra lubricant. Please make sure that your lubricant is suitable for use with condoms, as is the case with all Ritex lubricants. Lubricants can increase the safety of condoms, as they balance out any insufficient gliding properties the condoms may have.
Please always make sure not to apply lubricant on the penis directly or to the inside of the condom. This increases the risk of the condom slipping off or tearing. Do not use oily or greasy lubricants (e.g. Vaseline, baby oil), as they will adversely affect the condom and it may end up tearing.
