The Ten Condom Commandments

Alright, now this is interesting. How many of you knows the Ten Condom Commandments? I bet only some knows this. But hey, knowing it now is much better than knowing it after you have been impregnated or contracted an infection.

Condom protects you 95-97% of the time. The 3-5% margin of error is usually attributed to wrong condom use and storage. There are many guys I know that do not know how to properly insert a condom. 

Some still believes that wearing 2 condoms during sexual intercourse is the best way to avoid HIV infection or in impregnating a woman. 

Others said they don't want to wear condoms during sexual intercourse because they "don't feel anything". Well there are now different condom variations men can choose from: ultra thin, dotted and more to suit each man's need. So condom sensation is more of a state of mind.


Indiana University's Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction conducted a review of global literature on condom errors and problems from 1995 to 2011. IRIN/PlusNews has put together a list of suggestions based on some of the common errors reported.

So what are the 10 Condom Commandments we all should know and practice:


1. Use it from beginning to end...



2. Do not completely unroll the condom before putting it on...

3. Leave a space at the tip of the condom...

4. Squeeze air from the tip before use...


5. Put the condom on right way up...

6. Be careful not to damage the condom...

7. Use the right lubricant...

8. Withdraw correctly...

9. Store safely and check expiration dates...

10. Do not re-use...



There you have it. The 10 Condom Commandments. Please learn them by heart. Having to know the Condom Commandments and even using condoms the proper way doesn't make an individual promiscuous rather he becomes more responsible for himself and his partner. Using condoms consistently and correctly is one of the best ways to avoid sexually transmissible infections like HIV and from an untimely and unplanned pregnancy.
