SMART Youth Answers: Proper Condom Disposal

I just had sex. What do I do with the condom?

So...before we get down to business, congratulations for practicing safe sex.

Now, let's talk about the four easy steps involved in properly disposing a used condom. Before we get to that, let's take a brief moment for comic relief.  
Here's a short clip from the movie Blue Crush that kinda breaks it all done. Make sure you follow our steps or face the wrath of cleaning staff, plumbers or even worse... your mom!

Lucky you, you and your partner just had sex, and getting rid of the condom may not be your top priority while you are enjoying the afterglow. But there a couple of steps you should keep in mind that make disposing of a condom quick and easy.

You should dispose of a used condom immediately after ejaculation or if a man loses his erection

 Here are the steps:

1)    Make sure to hold the top of the condom and withdraw the flaccid penis carefully to avoid any fluids coming out of the condom
2)    Once you have removed the condom, tie off the base of the condom, wrap it in a tissue and put it in the trash.
3)    Despite the temptation, DO NOT FLUSH THE CONDOM DOWN THE TOILET. I know that it seems like the fastest way to get rid of the condom, but it will just cause your toilet to clog up, which will result in the plumber having to come and fish out the condom.

4) It is very important to dispose of a condom once you ejaculate. If the condom tears, semen can spill out, and that kinda eliminates the point of a condom. There is a small possibility of pregnancy or transmitting a sexually transmitted disease as a result so take care of the condom before you spoon! And remember to wash your hands and penis off, to remove any semen that could still be left behind.

Following these steps are part of properly using a condom and are essential to keeping yourself and your partner safe! SMART Youth and plumbers everywhere thank you...

The best thing that you can do with the used condom is to wrap it with a paper or tissue before disposing it. No more, no less.
