Tricks to optimize condom protection?

Recommended Posts

Hi friends,

Is there any trick to optimize the condom usage so it covers the entirety of the penis?

For guys (both infected and uninfected), the base of the penis is usually a concern because is not fully covered.

Thinking back, I know some brands and larger sizes adjust a little bit better than others (I'd need to remember which ones), so they practically cover most of the base and stick to it when you "do it", but other than that... is there some suggestion you would do to optimize condom usage to avoid transmission?

This idea may work for both infected men and infected women in discordant couples.

I have tried with a random brand of the sensitive kind of condoms (the thinner ones), and have noticed they wrap much better the penis than the normal ones. They are much more fixed to the base when moving.

I guess you have to find your brand.

It's like they slide less, and when you put them they stretch to the end and keep there. Seems like the latex has less volume and the vagina won't drag it as much as a regular condom. Those small "drags" (sometimes not so small) can be critical.

The "base" of the penis is still partially uncovered so I abstain to push fully till the end, but for me it looks much better protected than with usual cheaper condoms and this translates in better sex.
