How to Use the Insertive Condom
The condom is a non-latex barrier method intended to be worn by women during sex and provides protection against unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. At this time the product literature only states that the condom is for vaginal penetration, not anal sex. While research is ongoing at this time since there is not enough research, and the manufacturer does not provide more details, we do not recommend using the condom for protection during anal penetration. Here are the steps to properly using the condom.
- Open the condom package carefully; tear at the notch on the top right of the package. Do not use scissors or a knife to open.
- The outer ring covers the area around the opening of the vagina. The inner ring is used for insertion and to help hold the sheath in place during intercourse.
- While holding the condom at the closed end, grasp the flexible inner ring and squeeze it with the thumb and second or middle finger so it becomes long and narrow.
- Choose a position that is comfortable for insertion – squat, raise one leg, sit or lie down.
- Gently insert the inner ring into the vagina. Feel the inner ring go up and move into place.
- Place, the index finger on the inside of the condom, and push the inner ring up as far as it will go. Be sure the sheath is not twisted. The outer ring should remain on the outside of the vagina.
- The condom is now in place and ready for use with your partner.
- When you are ready, gently guide your partner's penis into the condom's opening with your hand to make sure that it enters properly – be sure that the penis is not entering on the side, between the sheath and the vaginal wall.
- To remove the condom, twist the outer ring and gently pull the condom out.
- Wrap the condom in the package or in tissue, and throw it in the garbage. Do not put it into the toilet.
You should not use condoms and condoms at the same time. The friction between the materials can increase the chance of tearing.
