How do you properly use a condom?
1. Make sure you have some good condoms. The CE logo will be displayed clearly on the packaging.
2. Just like different penis sizes, there are also different condom sizes. Therefore, make sure you always a variety of sizes available.
3. Always check the expiry date.
4. Make sure there is no contact between penis and vagina, mouth or anus before putting on the condom.
5. Carefully tear open the packaging of the condom. Do not use teeth or scissors. Use the perforated edges of the packet.
6. Hold the tip of the condom between your thumb and forefinger. This will prevent air from entering the condom. Avoid touching the condom with your fingernails as they may tear the condom.
7. Place the condom on only when your client has a good erection. If necessary, pull the foreskin down. You should still have the tip of the condom between your thumb and forefinger. Note that the condom rim should be on the outside. Otherwise, you won’t be able to unroll it. Then use your other hand to unroll the condom as far down as possible.
8. Use enough lubricant (if the condom fits snugly around the penis).
9. Immediately after ejaculation, withdraw the penis from the vagina or anus. Do this before the penis becomes flaccid. Then tie a knot in the condom. Be careful not to get semen on your hands, as you may still infect yourself.
10. A condom is basically made for about 15 minutes of (penetrative) sex. After this, friction can cause the condom to break sooner.

Perhaps you have experienced something bad, in your private life or at home. It could have been a recent event or even some time ago. Has a client crossed your boundaries?
It can be difficult to deal with less or little money. This can potentially lead to debt or other money problems.
