Step by step:
Step 1: Always check the expiration date on the wrapper – if it is too old it might break!
Step 2: When the penis is erect, it is time to put the condom on.
Step 3: Open the wrapper and take out the condom. Be careful when handling the condom so it doesn’t break. Don’t pull on it too hard.
Step 4: The condom can only be rolled on in one direction – so make sure it is the right way up. The rim should be on the outside so it looks like a little hat.
Step 5: Pinch the little air filled tip of the condom, thereby letting out the air and leaving room for any potential sperm that is ejected during ejacutation.
While still pinching the tip of the condom, place it on the tip of the penis
Step 6: Keep pinching the tip of the condom with one hand, unroll the condom down the shaft of the penis with the other hand. The condom has to unroll all the way down to the part of the penis closest to the body (the root).
Step 7: You are now ready to have safe sex
* Note: If the condom is broken you can’t use it.

To consent to something means saying ‘yes’ or agreeing to something. Informed consent means making an informed voluntary decision. When consenting, both persons should feel that they have equal power in the relationship and is not pressured to consent by the other person.
Consent includes knowing and respecting one’s own boundaries as well as the boundaries of others. Sexual consent means both partners agree to the sexual activity and understand what they’re agreeing to. Sexual consent is about a person’s right to make their own choice about sexual activity.
Consent is the foundation of a sexual relationship. Consent must be given for every sexual activity, every time.
