Are You Sure You’re Doing It Right?
Condoms can be 98% effective in preventing pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases when used correctly, but new research from the Kinsey Institute Condom Use Research Team (CURT) has revealed that a lot of people are making mistakes when they put on a condom.
Between 17 and 51.1% of people put a condom on after they’ve started having sex, while between 13.6 and 44.7% said they took the condom off before they were done.
Men struggled with how to put on a condom. Up to 45.7% of men questioned did not leave space at the tip for semen, while up to a quarter said they incorrectly unrolled the sheath.
Two studies also found that 74.5 per cent of men and 82.7 per cent of women didn't check the condom for damage before they used it.
