Using condoms is a secure way to contraception. Condoms function by preventing semen of men from moving into the vagina. The male condom is put over a male's penis next he attains an erection before any intimate contact with the vagina. This condom is rolled completely to the bottom of the male organ while keeping the end of the condom to leave a little extra room at the end. That creates the area for semen after ejaculation and makes it very unlikely that the condom may break. After the man ejaculates, he should hold on to the condom at the base of the penis when he pulls it from the vagina. He should do this as the penis continues to be erect to avoid the condom from slipping off when he gets soft. Should this happen, sperm could get into the vagina of a woman. Thus, guys should take a little extra caution before using condoms.
There are some condoms that are thicker than average. They will help prolong the experience even longer than a normal condom. Any condom that is labeled ‘extra strong’ or ‘extra safe’ or ‘extended pleasure’ is going to be thicker than your average condom and will help you last longer. For example, Lifestyles Extra Strength condoms are .09 mm thick whereas Lifestyles Ultra Sensitive are .074 mm. Compare that to Trojan Bare Skin, which are .046 mm and you can see there is quite a difference between condoms.
