I had wanted to do a video for this topic but my mischievousness wouldn’t let me be great…LOL. I actually love educating people about the use of condoms because overtime I’ve noticed even with a lot of folks being enlightened, some of us still make some gross mistakes that eventually land us in trouble.
Condoms (AKA rubber/umbrella like some of my patients would call it) have been around a long time. The most popular is the male condom; yea most people don’t even know there’s the female version used in an interesting way (we’d get to that soon). The male condom is a thin-like sheath usually made out of latex and is worn on the penis; the female condom on the other hand is a polyurethane sheath with a flexible ring at either end. Both work by keeping semen from getting into the vajayjay. In case you don’t know how to use a condom, let me give a quick step by step process for each type.
Male Condom: Open the sachet containing your umbrella carefully avoiding ripping it (the condom I mean). Place the condom on an erect penis (not when the soldier is still down) and this should be done just before sexual contact. Unroll all the way to the base of your peepee while holding the tip of the condom to leave some extra room at the end. This helps to make some room for your “seeds” after ejaculation and reduces the likelihood for a break. After ejaculation, hold the condom at the base of the D and then pull out gently. It is usually advised to do this while your equipment is still erect to prevent the condom from slipping off when it’s soft and risking getting some of the sperm in the lady’s pumpum. We were taught back in school to dispose of the condom by burying in the ground…..but who dey ready to go dey dig ground after knacks abi? Just sha dispose in the bin, if you can, wrap it up and throw away. DON’T FLUSH DOWN THE TOILET!!
Female Condom: The female condom can be inserted up to 8 hours prior to intercourse. Insert into your garden using the closed-end ring. The other ring forms the open end of the condom. The sheath then lines the walls of the vagina, creating a barrier between the sperm and the cervix. Use your finger to insert deep. During intercourse, direct your partner's device into the opening. Stop intercourse if u feel it slip off. The female condom is rarely used though, for obvious reasons...plenty protocols and you won't even be able to freely be pleasured as you will be monitoring whether bros has not shifted it somehow. One has to be really careful when using this type. After intercourse, gently remove the condom from your cuntus by gently twisting the ring then pulling the condom out. Dispose appropriately.
Today I really want to highlight on the gross misconception that using two condoms at the same time offers more protection as opposed to just using one. The other day at the pharmacy, one very sharp looking guy came in to purchase some condoms; bought a lot and even got some of the female one. Ah I was singing “Bad Baddo Baddest” in my head like this dude not about to take any chances for any reason. He sha then asked me “Abi I can use two rubbers at once?” My eyes just opened well. I was like “You want to use two at once?” He gave me an affirmative nod and went on to ask if his girl could use the female one at the same time too, that in fact they want to try everything. Oh Boy! My ears just went ding ding ding.
I had to take my time to educate him on the proper use of condoms. I’m sure some people have made these mistakes and when something goes wrong, they say “Ah, but we used even two condoms”. Double bagging or putting on more than one condom is and will never be a good idea. Here’s what happens when you double bag…
Wearing two condoms can increase the friction between condoms during sex , weakening the material and hence can make them prone to a rip or tear. Simply put, using two condoms is risking the chance for a break to condom. Researchers of a study concluded that using two condoms at the same time had a 3.4% probability of breakage and the break usually happens at the tip of the condom.
Now to using both male and female condoms together, please and please desist from such temptation. It’s your village people trying to play ten-ten with your destiny. If you use both at the same time, they can get stuck together and cause either of them to slip during intercourse, nullifying their protective effect against STDs and pregnancy. NO GO SET YOURSELF UP.
Another thing I want to hammer on, please condom is NOT WASH AND WEAR. You can’t use it more than once. Before some people go like “condom don finish….we need to go another round, make I use this one again”…Abeg! Don’t allow village people have power over you. Use condom just once and use it right. When used in the right way, condoms are effective against most STDs and then pregnancy. However, they don’t protect against infections that spread from sores on the skin not covered by a condom.
One other precaution to note while using a condom is never to use oil based lubricants like mineral oil, petroleum jelly or baby oil as they can break down the rubber. Also, if you open your condom and notice it’s dry or sticky, please check the expiry date; it’s probably past its expiration.
It’s good to have a lot of condoms handy just in case of necessity, like if one is actually bad or if you mess one up. So don’t be shy to walk into any pharmacy and get a whole carton *big grin*.
Keeping it real as usual, Krystal ;)
