View Full Version : Who puts on the condom?

So, a female friend of mine has had only one lover and since she was on another form of birth control (and I guess she felt he was clean; I didn't ask about tests), he never used a condom. So she felt that she needs to learn how to put one on a future partner, and asked me today if the guy puts on his own??

Since I've only had a couple of lovers and they put their own on (I used foam in addition so I had my own thing to attend to), I didn't know what to tell her.

So, do most guys put their own on? When a woman puts it on for you, is it part of sex play (it seems more serious than that, making sure it's properly on)?

My first GF that I was involved with "in that way" usually put it on when we first started, just because she was quite experienced comapred to my no experience. But due to a combo factor of her having long nails, and me being...umm...larger than average, we had an unusually high occurance of breakage, so I put them on after. Once I started buying the larger-sized ones, she was able to put them on without having to use her nails to strech it, thus negating the cause of the breaking.

Pretty much I put them on with my future partners, because I was the one who had them. It really doesn't matter. If any guy is turned-off because she did/didn't put them on herself, or did/didn't let him put it on, he's a moron and not worth sleeping with.

I've always put my own on, but I really don't care who puts it on. I've usually got more pressing issues on my mind (oooh boy I'm getting LAID!!)

I've had it done both ways. If she likes to put it on, that's great. If I have to, that's no problem.

This is really stupid but I'm feeling a little self-conscious about the personal info in this thread, in light of the fact that I am adamantly Catholic and celibate and have been for quite some time (all my life and about 12 years now respectively). I did stray for a while there and am back on the straight and narrow. I just don't want to seem like a hypocrite!!

I don't think there is any rule of ettiquette on this. In my experience it seems to be whoever grabs the condom first, although sometimes the guys have handed them to me, and vice-versa. It is a good idea for both parties to be comfortable it, so that you're more likely to use them.

And they should, the filthy buggers.


My feeling would be that in general the one wearing it should put it on. But that's just me, I like to be sure it's on right, fits comfortably etc.

Well, it would be mighty hard for most guys to put it on themselves, using the approved method of putting it on with the mouth...

Just make sure everyone knows where the thing is. The first one to want penetration makes the grab.

Make it a contest to see who can resist the longest.

Oh, I don't know about that... back in the day, I was pretty adept at putting diaphragms in. My girlfriends always had problems getting the angle right and ended up launching a couple.

I had always thought it was the guy's responsibility so went about taking care of it myself. The first time the girl did it for me she grabbed it out of my hand, took it from the foil and proceeded to apply it mouth-wise. I was flabbergasted and quickly became even more turned on than I was already. None of my subsequent lovers ever volunteered to replicate the act, but many of them took matters into their own hands in other ways.

Generally, I think the guy ought to do it. After all, he doesn't show up each night with a glass of water for me to take my birth control pill with. I figure that if I am buying them (I've always got a nice stockpile, since guys tend to "forget" :rolleyes: ) and I'm buying my birth control (and taking it accordingly), why shouldn't he?

That said, some guys think it's really hot if you put it on for them. In that case, I'm fine with it and will do it happily.

The last time I put a condom on a guy, he lectured me about how the lube was supposed to be on the inside... you know, to make it more pleasurable for him since they're so uncomfortable*. :rolleyes:




*Maybe they are. I wouldn't know. I didn't sleep with him that night, FWIW. Slippage, anyone?

Yep, a bit of lubrication on the inside is needed. Some guys don't produce much natural lubrication (pre-cum) and a bit on the condom prevents chafing.

IIRC the suggestion to add a drop of lube in the receptacle end is even included on the condom-application instructions in the package. Anything to improve comfort and pleasure is a good thing, right?

That said, I've never done it, nor been asked to. But would be happily willing. If the condoms are lubed anyway, I don't see how an extra drop will be more likely to cause slippage.

I had visions of the condom sticking to me and slipping right off him. Since he was sleeping with multitudes of Street Kids in downtown Portland (at least two others while he was rooming in my apartment), I thought about things like slippage a bit more seriously than I had previously.


When the cops posted notices about a bad batch of heroin floating around, and having already met several shooters there, this small-town girl realized the city was not as beautifully glamorous as she'd thought. While visions of HIV and Hepatitis C danced through their heads...

Whoever wants to. I've never had a problem putting them on myself. If a partner puts one on for me thats great too. As long as a condom ends up on me and/or my partner all is good.

Every guy I've ever been with has put the condom on himself, and frankly it never occurred to me to do it. If I were asked to do so, though, I'd at least try it. What's the harm, after all? I always have lots of condoms anyway, though at the rate I'm going, my current stockpile will expire long before they would be used. :(

It doesn't much matter to me. Normally, he puts it on, but if asked, I'm more than happy to do so for him.

Speaking of which I saw a program a while back (HBO?) where in a sex class the instructor was teaching the ladies to put condoms on using only their mouths.
I'm in. :D

I've never been the one to put the condom on my guy. I'm really really nearsighted, so I'd have to have it like six inches from my face to make sure I had the "right" side going on him. I can't imagine putting one on with my mouth - I'm not a fan of the taste of rubber and lube!

Any port in a storm...

I've always put them on for myself. It seems to be less fuss. I've never known anyone who'd even think of putting them on with her mouth, and it was tricky enough to do it myself... maybe it was that whole larger-size thing, although I've only ever seen them in one-size-fits-all. (Insert joke about Winston Churchill and wartime supplies to Russia here.)

So when do you put them on? I mean, it seems like you'd kind of interrupt the er, flow of things by stopping to put one on. How do you do it . . . gracefully?
