Step 5: Apply the Condom
Once the top of the condom has been identified, place the condom onto the head of the penis (remember - rolls should be facing out and up). Hold the tip of the condom, (the sperm receptacle) with one hand and unroll the condom down the shaft of the penis (or penis like object).
Keep unrolling the condom as far as possible, recognizing that the condom may not unroll completely before you get to the base of the penis (or penis like object).
If the condom is feeling comfortable at this point, then you are ready to use it safely.
Ideally the condom should fit snugly on the penis and have a little extra room at the tip for the semen to collect in during ejaculation.
Some problems that arise during application of condoms can range from users putting condoms on inside out, the penis not staying errect during application, using too large of a condom, using too small of a condom and probably many other untold things that have happened to condom users over the years. Whatever troubles you may be having, rest assured that you most likely not alone, and that with some further practice, you'll be able to use a condom in no time.
