Many people know the importance of wearing a condom when it's time for some one-on-one action, but far fewer gents actually know one of the most important rules of the game: how to properly apply a condom.

In the heat of the moment, it's challenging to have to think about ripping open a condom without tearing the latex, successfully rolling the condom all the way down the penis, remembering to smooth away any air bubbles, and finally, squeezing the tip, all without killing the mood.

Here's a fun fact: condoms are the only method that protect against both pregnancy and STDs (including HIV), but only if used correctly! To keep things from getting too technical, Avert, an international HIV/AIDS charity, has put together this fun infographic to keep the the condom application process smooth & sexy.


With so many condom options available, its easy to forget about its effectiveness. Condoms are the only sure way to protect both you and your partner from the transmission of STDs, so remember to wrap it up, and wrap it up right. Happy hump day!
