TIP Be careful with sharp nails and rough skin, which could also rip the condom.

OPEN SESAME

Use clean hands to carefully tear the packet open.

TIP If you struggle, blowing into the condom should help you identify which way round it goes.

GET IT UP THE RIGHT WAY

Place the condom on your penis, teat up.

TIP If you have a foreskin, pull it back gently to make way for the condom.

SQUEEZY DOES IT

Squeeze the air out of the teat and place it on your penis.

TIP Using both hands (one to hold the condom at the tip and the other to unroll it) makes it much easier to do.

ROLL WITH IT

Roll the condom all the way down to the base.

TIP Condoms and toilets don't gel well. Putting one down the bog could clog your pipes, before coming back up to say hello.

HOLD IT RIGHT THERE

Hold the condom at the base as you pull out, knot it, then bin it.
