Condoms are thin pouches that keep sperm from getting into the vagina. There are male condoms and female condoms:. Condoms work by keeping semen the fluid that contains sperm from entering the vagina. The male condom is placed on the penis when it becomes erect. It is unrolled all the way to the base of the penis while holding the tip of the condom to leave some extra room at the end.
Disposing of a condom is more involved than you think. Though there is only one good place to dispose of a condom, the act of disposal merits much thought. Don't risk pregnancy or infection by improperly disposing of your condoms. To dispose of a condom safely, start by pulling it off gently from the tip rather than rolling it off from the top. Once you've removed it, tie it off at the top to prevent any spillages.
