Default Condom question

When a man climaxes...is the fluid supposed to collect in the front of the condom only? I've seen it where it ends up at the tip (mostly?), but also all around the shaft (still in the condom though). Condom too small?

The semen is supposed to collect in the bottom tip, yes, if the condom fits properly. Personally, I've never worn one and my wifee is on birth control. I like to feel her and she likes to feel me and when I orgasm instead of latex, etc.

The semen should collect in the tip of the condom, and not travel up around the shaft. If it does, there could be a chance of spillage on withdrawal.

Here's condom size chart:-

Should it be any different if this was not with regard to intercourse (in this context, it was manual stimulation)?

I know, probably weird, but we thought we would get used to using them before actually having intercourse with them. Better to find out now if we are using the wrong size...

The modern trend in some condoms is for oversizing the head to allow a little slippage to increase male enjoyment. This can certainly allow semen to get lower on the shaft.

Proper condom use includes getting the hell out of dodge as soon as you're done.

Good for you!

Yes, the semen should be gathered and contained in the reservoir tip. The condom needs to be tight enough around the shaft, and needs to have enough room at the tip. It's possible you may be pulling it too far down.

Once you have the condom fully seated, hold the bottom ring secure at the base of your penis. With the other hand, pull the tip upward to increase the space for collection. You may need to unwind the condom more, performing this procedure a few times. No more than 1/2 inch is needed to collect semen safely. If, after doing this, you run out of condom length, then the condom is too small. But, this is unlikely. A condom can be unrolled FAR beyond the average large size penis.


Next up, applying your man's condom with your mouth while he remains unaware you are applying a condom!

There is no way the reservoir tip is voluminous enough to contain it all. It will go down the sides, but shouldn't have to go much past the glans, but then it depends on how much volume the man releases I guess.

The correct way of putting on a condom is to pinch the reservoir at the tip to allow it to expand when you ejaculate. Otherwise, air pressure from the unpinched tip can force the ejaculate back down the sides of the shaft.

Most guys just drop the condom on like a hat and unroll.

In preparing to teach a course for sexual decision making and negotiation, there was an interesting comment made by another woman about applying a condom on your man without his knowledge. At the time I didn't think it could be done. None of us facilitators could claim first hand knowledge so... I volunteered to give it a try.

H had already had a vasectomy so I asked him to pick up a few condoms on the way home because I wanted to try something but couldn't tell him what... Otherwise he would be expecting it.

He enjoyed what he thought was a typical BJ a few days later until I jumped off the bed, threw my hands in the air and crowed "Taaa Dahhh!"

I'd like to thank the academy....

what would be more scary is if it was possible for women to remove the condom during coitus and somehow get it back on without him noticing.
