I ran into a nice
picture (no longer accessible) with details about how to put on a condom (I’m referring to male condom here). I think that younger readers will find it useful so I’m sharing it here. Below I’ll continue describing how to do it properly in more details.
There are certain steps on how to put on a condom. They should be followed properly.
Step One: Open the package.
You should open the package carefully so that you will not create any hole or damage on the condom. Even if you are in hurry because of the situation, you need to do this skillfully.

Step Two: Position then roll it on.
Pull back the foreskin slightly before you start placing the condom. Then unroll the condom a little. Before putting it on further, make sure to squeeze the tip of the condom.
This will leave no space for the ejaculated sperm. If this step is neglected, the rubber might pop once you reach your climax. Next, roll the condom down, all the way to the base of the penis.
Step Three: put some lubricant before starting out.
This step is optional. The use of condom can be a bit uncomfortable that’s why a lubricant can somewhat help. Also, if dryness persists, it can destroy the condom.
These steps can sometimes be found in the condom package. And while doing these steps, there are still some guidelines that you should keep in mind.
First, don’t store your condoms in your pocket or anywhere hidden because condoms can be destroyed by heat.
Second, don’t use oil-based lubricants like skin lotions because they can weaken the Latex. Therefore, use water-based or silicone-based lubricants with Latex condoms.
Another thing to remember is: withdraw immediately if the condom breaks. Moreover, after the sexual intercourse, hold the base of the condom before pulling it out slowly.
Make sure to discard it properly for hygienic purposes.
Furthermore, never use condoms more than the indicated usage (condom should be only used once).
Here’s an instructional video that shows you how to put on a condom.
