A condom is a contraceptive usually made of latex. It is in the form of a thin stretchy pouch that is rolled over the penis before sex takes place. This bag collects the man's sperm and, if you use the condom correctly, can prevent pregnancies and STDs .
The history of the condom
Condoms are very old and the first signs of their existence date from 10,000 years BC In caves, drawings have been found that depict the condom, but such images have also been found in Egypt. Only from 1500 we are sure of the existence of condoms. The first variants were made of sheep gut or leather at that time. Today there are many different types of condoms that can meet everyone's needs.
In this category you will find condoms that have a special size. There are extra small, but also extra large condoms. These condoms are suitable for men who have a different penis size compared to the average penis. Think big, thick, thin and short penises. The average penis size is approximately 13 centimeters long and 11.5 centimeters thick in circumference. By choosing the right size, comfort and safety can be increased during sex. The best known brand is My Size condoms. These condoms come with a measuring strip.
Extra strong condom
Extra strong condoms are made of very sturdy, good quality material . An extra strong condom often has a somewhat thicker wall. The condoms are suitable for people who want to be assured of safety during sex. They can also be used well when penetrating the anus . Because the anus is generally very narrow, an ordinary condom can tear more easily during anal sex. It is also advisable to use water-based lubricant with an extra strong condom. The anus does not have natural moisture like the vagina.
Bulk package of condoms
In one bulk packaging with condoms there are many condoms in one package. This can vary from 50 to 1000 pieces per package. The more condoms there are in one package, the cheaper they become in proportion. This makes bulk packaging ideal for people who are large consumers or who simply want to be well supplied . This way you always have a condom at hand 'in the heat of the moment'. It is possible to filter in this category on thin condoms, large condoms, extra safe condoms, flavors and ribbed condoms.
Fun condoms come in many different types. There are condoms with colors, variants that glow in the dark and funny condom packaging (with a Halloween look, for example). A fun packaging can also contain condoms with different flavors or structures, for example. Fun condoms are therefore suitable for people who want to experiment with different species. In addition, fun condoms can serve as a funny gift .
In this category you will find colored condoms. You often get different cheerful colors such as yellow, red, green and blue in one package. But you can also opt for a pack of one color condoms, such as black. In most cases the colored condoms contain a (fruit) flavor. Color condoms are suitable for people who want something different during sex. .
The name says it all: latex-free condoms are not made of latex , but of a different material. This material can be a certain type of resin or substances such as polyisoprene (a synthetic rubber). These contraceptives are suitable for people who have a latex allergy and therefore cannot tolerate ordinary condoms. A big difference from the regular variants is that latex-free condoms are considerably less stretchable. Also, you don't always put them on in the same way. For example, at Pasante Unique condoms you don't roll them off, but instead you slide them around your penis.
Mixed pack of condoms
Just like with fun condoms, you will find many different condoms in this category that allow you to experiment . For example, there are condoms with ribs and studs in one package. You will find colored and flavored condoms. The condoms in mixed packaging are suitable for people who do not quite know what they like. Or for people who just want to experiment a bit.
Studs and ribbed condoms
Condoms with studs and ridges contain bumps and lines that can provide extra pleasure during sex. Some condoms contain both. The ridges and studs can also differ in size. Especially for women are condoms with studs and ridges nice because they stimulate the inside of the vagina. A woman could have an orgasm earlier this way.
Orgasm delay condoms
Orgasm delaying condoms contain lubricant, which delay an orgasm. This lubricant is on the inside of the condom and has a slightly numbing effect on the glans. This can come in handy when a man cums quickly (against his will). The orgasm delaying condoms allows a couple to enjoy lovemaking longer . There is normal lubricant on the outside of the condom which makes penetration easy.
Flavors condoms contain an edible gel that tastes good. This could be a fruit flavor, for example, but also cola, chocolate, and so on. Flavored condoms sometimes have a color and are mainly used for a man's blowjob. By using a flavored condom, both parties are protected against an STD. Moreover, it can be nice for the man or woman to taste something while satisfying the partner.
Standard condoms are basic condoms. Apart from some lubricant, they do not have a special element. These condoms are made of latex and contain a collection reservoir for the semen. For many people these are well-known and trusted condoms . The standard variants of Durex are especially popular. For people who don't like a lot of fuss and don't want to spend too much money on condoms, normal condoms are the best choice.
The condoms in this category contain lubricant that provides a certain stimulation. There are condoms that can provide a pleasant tingling sensation. Or there are condoms that give off heat or coolness. This can both speed up and delay an orgasm. This can add an extra dimension to your lovemaking . For example, the stimulating condoms are suitable for couples who want to try something new and like to experiment. If you want to try both cooling and warming condoms, there are packs that contain both types.
Ultra thin condoms
The name says it all: ultra thin condoms are very thin. They are made of latex, but they are considerably less thick than a regular version. A regular condom has an average thickness of 0.065. An ultra-thin latex chip can be up to 0.045 mm thick. That is thinner than a human hair. Due to the thin wall, penetration can be more sensitive for the man and the sex can be experienced as more pleasant . Not everyone trusts a thinner condom, but the quality is just as good and the thin condoms are equally strong. Durex Invisible condoms are a popular example from this category.
Female condoms are condoms worn by women during sex. They are latex-free and up to 17 centimeters long. The condom should be inserted into the vagina. Because this contraceptive can be inserted a few hours before sex, 'messing around' before sex can be prevented. The female condom is often pleasant for the man because he does not have to 'squeeze' himself into an ordinary condom.
A beflapje is (often) a latex cloth measuring 15 by 15 centimeters. It is not a condom, but a contraceptive for oral sex . Such as licking the vagina (eating pussy). But satisfying the anus with the mouth also falls under oral sex. Initially they are used by men who want to lick women. But a lick patch can also be used for the anus by a man or woman. Women can also use the cloth together. That makes this contraceptive also suitable for gay couples.
How do you use a condom?
Choose the right size. A condom that does not fit properly is uncomfortable and unsafe. While men don't want to hear it, a condom can be too big. You can recognize a too big break by loose latex. The contraceptive must always be tight on the penis. An ordinary variant can also be too tight because of a too large penis. The condom then pinches off. You can recognize this by the color difference in your penis. Pinched parts then turn white. This can also be experienced as painful. Before ordering, measure your penis first. Both in length and thickness.
Have a stock. A condom sometimes breaks. If you only have one with you and it goes wrong, that can be quite a downer. Make sure you stock up on enough.
Remove it from the packaging. Keep in mind that you carefully tear the packaging loose. The edges of the bag can be sharp. Tear the packaging slightly in the middle and pull the two parts apart. This way the contraceptive does not come into contact with the foil. Also watch out with long and sharp nails. Catch the condom with your hands or let it land in your lap. A condom that has fallen on the floor is not hygienic and therefore unusable.
Determine the correct position. When you unroll it in the dark, it is wise to keep a small light there. This way you can be sure that you are doing it right. Feel with your fingers which side is the right one. There is a mnemonic to discover the good side of the condom. Feel and see whether the rolled-up latex is a hat or a cap. If you put it on your glans with the rolled side inwards, it is a hat. That is wrong. Unrolling will be difficult or not. With the roll side out you have a hat and that is the right side.
Unroll him. Now that you have put the chop on your glans correctly, you can unroll it. With your thumb and forefinger, squeeze the nozzle at the top. You can unroll the latex with your other thumb and index finger. Make sure you bend your fingers slightly so that your nails are facing out. Unroll it all the way to the beginning of your penis.
Is not there anymore. Once the condom is in place, it is not wise to pull it on or to 'move' the latex. The friction can cause damage and even cracks. If the condom is really bad, it is better to take off the old condom and get a new one. If everything goes well, you can start your lovemaking.
What size condom should I have?
You can determine which size condom you need on the basis of the diagram below. You need a piece of string and a ruler to measure.
Wrap the string around your erect penis. Cut it where the string is all the way round or hold it at that point. Then measure the length of the string. That is the width of your penis.
To measure the length of your penis, hold the ruler against your erect penis. Measure at the top of the shaft. That means from your stomach, not from your scrotum.
* The following chart gives an indication of the correct size. Because not every penis is the same, the size you need may differ from what is in the table.
