Itâ€™s remarkable how a tiny thing like a condom can cause so much confusion among its users.
The purpose of using condoms is contraception and to prevent STDâ€™s.
Failing to use it the right way can turn fun to doom which could lead to unwanted disaster: new life or death (if AIDS/HIV is contracted).
According to an interesting article by Menâ€™s Health, there’s a whopping 15 mistakes people are making when it comes to the usage of con-dooms.
By a tiny con-doom?
As always, I read surveys with a grain of salt. I think you should too.
Donâ€™t trust every thing you read (mine included). Use your wisdom to decide what you read – whether it is a fact or myth.
The same goes to this con-doom survey by Indiana University.
Although I am not sure how true the survey is, I share it with you anyway because thereâ€™s SOMETHING we can learn here: the proper way of using a con-doom.
Hereâ€™s the list of 15 con-doom mistakes from the survey:
1. late application â€“ putting it on only after intercourse has begun
2. early removal â€“ remove it before intercourse is complete
3. completely unrolling the condom prior to application
4. no space at the tip â€“ leaving no room for semen
5. failure to remove air from the tip before use
6. inside-out con-dooms â€“ trying to save money or what?
7. failure to completely unroll the condom before use â€“ low cut?
8. exposure to sharp object
9. failure to check for damage
10. no lubrication â€“ extended usage can cause con-doom to tear if without lubrication.
11. lubrication complications
12. incorrect withdrawal
13. reusing a condom
14. incorrect storage – avoid storing them in direct sunlight or your wallet
15. not wearing one at all â€“ is this a mistake too?
Phew! That was long.
Yeah I know.
