What is to be considered with lube and condoms?

Again and again the question arises, what has to be considered with the simultaneous use of lubricant and condom. And in fact this question is justified, because some things can go wrong.

IMPORTANT: Lubes must be labelled with condom suitable, condom compatible or condom friendly. Once this has been clarified, you can be sure that the ingredients of the lubricant will definitely not attack the material of the condom.

And please don't try to replace a lubricant with any substances you find in the household. The use can be fatal, because substances containing oil or grease can cause micro-cracks in the condom. Sperm and germs then have a clear path.


Broken condom, was the lube to blame?

Now you've learned to use the right lubricant for a condom. But you should also pay attention to the following application errors, so that no bad misfortune happens:

  • Pay attention to the durability of your condom, because a condom lasts a maximum of 4 to 5 years. So please check the best-before date before using your condom.

  • Never store condoms too warm. Exposure to direct sunlight can cause the material to age more quickly.

  • Be careful when unpacking the condom. Scissors, knives and even sharp fingernails may cause pregnancy.

  • Determine the right size for your penis, because if the condom is too small, there is a risk that it will burst and if it is too big, it will slip.


In what order? Lubricant and condom or condom and lubricant?

For most people it seems to be logical, but our research in various forums was accompanied by alarming opinions. For us a reason to take up this topic just to be on the safe side. Anyone who thinks that lubricant under a condom is more intense can only claim that because he lost the condom immediately after the first penetration!

We ask urgently for: first put on the condom and then spread the lubricant on it! Lubricant first on the penis and then condom = a guarantor for a condom sliding part. Please don't do it.

Tip: Condoms are multi-talented; they protect against unwanted pregnancy and diseases. However, they do not protect 100 percent in the transmission of HP viruses. That is why we recommend BIOglide safe for further safety when using lubricants and condoms. The natural lubricant with Carrageenan is the safe variant which can reduce the risk of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. The virus transmitted during sexual intercourse can lead to cervical cancer and genital warts in women. The high-quality ingredient Carrageenan can prevent the virus from attaching to human cells. Carrageenan acts as a natural barrier.
