If you find that you are losing your erection while putting condoms on, try different types and brands. They might be more comfortable for you or feel better in your hand. Consider adding lube to help make the process more pleasurable and to help you stay hard.
It is also important to be sure the condom is on the right side of your penis, as this can affect sensation.
You need to be erect
You can use condoms to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). They are easy to use, but they have to be used correctly. To make them more effective, you should always follow the directions on the package. Also, don’t forget to check the expiration date. Condoms last about a year, so it’s important to replace them regularly.
If you’re having trouble staying hard in the bedroom, it may be a sign that your body is stressed or that you are bored with sex. In this case, it’s best to talk to your partner and see if there are ways that you can spice things up. In addition to making sex more enjoyable for both of you, it can also increase your pleasure during the act.
The simplest way to put on a condom is to pinch the tip and roll it down onto an erect penis. Make sure to leave a little space at the end so that semen can fall out after ejaculation. If you’re uncircumcised, it might be more comfortable to pull back your foreskin before placing the condom on.
If you’re using a lubricated condom, add a few drops of water-based or silicone lubricant inside the tip before you roll it on. This will reduce friction during sex and decrease the chances of it breaking or tearing. Oil-based lubricants can weaken latex condoms, so it’s important to use them with caution.
You need to have a good erection
You should always use a condom when you’re having sex. This protects against pregnancy and STIs. Using a condom doesn’t mean that you have to lose your erection. There are plenty of ways to have sex that don’t require an erect penis. However, it’s important to practice beforehand and try different types of condoms to find one that fits your partner and feels comfortable.
A condom that’s too tight will clamp down on both the blood flow into your penis and the nerves, reducing sensitivity. It may also kill your erection, making it impossible to get the arousal you need to orgasm. Using a condom that’s too tight is also dangerous for your partner.
Condoms are very strong, but they can tear if you put too much pressure on them or if you’re not careful. You should always check the package before buying it, and make sure that you don’t tear it when unwrapping it. If the condom is brittle, stiff, sticky, or expired, toss it out.

You can also try lubricating the condom with a water-based lube to reduce friction. Avoid oil-based lubricants, which can weaken latex condoms and increase the risk of a break.
You need to be comfortable
Condoms are supposed to be easy to put on, but they’re not always easy. They’re usually a little slippery, which can make them hard to grip on to. To help keep the condom on, pinch the tip of the condom with the pads of your fingers. This also helps to make sure that the condom isn’t inside out (which could allow fluid to leak out during sex and cause a break).
Many men experience difficulties getting and staying hard while wearing a condom, known as condom-associated erectile problems or CAEP. This can be due to a variety of factors, including the stress of using a condom and a lack of foreplay and oral stimulation. It’s important to talk about this with your partner and try to find ways to improve the situation.
One way to deal with this problem is to use lube. There are many different kinds of lubricants on the market, but it’s best to use a water-based lube, as oily lubricants can damage the condom and prevent it from being effective. Another option is to incorporate the condom into foreplay, and to use stroking or massaging techniques while putting it on to help stimulate an erection. This can also increase sexual satisfaction and help to avoid condom collapse syndrome, which is a common cause of CAEP in young men.
You need to be ready
When it comes to using condoms, it is important that you are ready for sex. That means having a good erection and having some lubrication. You should use a water-based lubricant, such as K-Y Jelly or Durex Play. Oil-based lubricants can weaken latex and cause the condom to break.
You should also make sure that the condom is the right size. If it is too big, it will slip off or tear. If it is too small, it will be difficult to insert and may not seal properly. If you have trouble finding the right size, try a few different sizes to see what works best for you.
Also, remember to leave a half-inch space at the tip of the condom. This will make it easier for you to collect your semen when ejaculating. You should also pinch the air out of the tip before you unroll it. This will prevent the condom from breaking during sex.
You should put the condom on when your penis is erect, but before it touches your partner’s mouth or genital area (vulva, anus, vagina, and buttocks). Doing so will protect you from STDs that can be transmitted through skin-to-skin contact, as well as from sperm in pre-ejaculatory fluid (pre-cum). It’s important to remember that using condoms does reduce sensations. It is a good idea to practice using condoms with your partner so that you are familiar with how they feel.
