Condoms are thin pouches that keep sperm from getting into the vagina. There are male condoms and female condoms: A male condom is worn on the penis. It is usually made of latex, a type of rubber. But some are made of materials that are safe for people with latex allergies, such as polyurethane or polyisoprene.
This means they have been tested to the required safety standards. Also, check that the expiry date is clearly visible on the packet. The female condom is sometimes called a femidom because Femidom is its brand name in the UK. Male condoms During sex, male condoms are worn on the penis to prevent semen sperm entering the woman's vagina when the man ejaculates comes. While squeezing the tip of the condom, roll it down over the length of the erect penis. Make sure that the condom stays in place while you're having sex.
