FAQ For Condoms
Condoms are among the safest contraceptives, because only condoms can prevent the transmission of diseases (e.g. HIV or syphilis) in addition to preventing pregnancy. The Pearl Index (i.e. the measure of a contraceptive’s safety) for condoms is 2 to 12, and the lower the value, the greater the protection. In this case, it means that 2 to 12 people have become pregnant despite using condoms (over a period of one year). It is important to remember that the greatest possible protection is only given if the condom is used correctly. Many people do not know, for example, that certain lubricants can reduce the protection of condoms.
You can find the expiration date on the condom package. In addition, make sure that you do not store them with sharp and/or pointed objects and that they do not get too warm (e.g. in summer). Dark and cool storage places are good (not the refrigerator or freezer!). You should also avoid pressure on the package. Many people keep condoms in their purses. This is not recommended (heat in summer, too much pressure from the wallet, pants pocket, …).
Did you know that the first condom was made from the appendix of animals? That was in 1735, even before the first soccer rules were established.
When it comes to condoms, you should not make any deductions and always go for branded goods with a seal of approval. Billy Boy, Durex and Ritex, among others, are trustworthy suppliers. In our guide you will find the best and most popular variants of these and other high-quality brands.
It is important that there is no air in the condom (otherwise there is no room for the sperm). This is achieved by holding the tip together with your thumb and forefinger and then placing the condom on the glans. Note: It should be put on the right way around so that you can unroll it down. If it is put on the wrong way around and you have to turn it around to roll it over the penis, there may already be sperm (e.g. pleasure drops) on the tip, which will then pass into your partner during intercourse. In this case, it is better to use a new condom and check beforehand whether it is the right way round. It is important that the penis is erect.
The condom was invented in 1735. At that time it was still made of the appendix of animals.
