Used correctly and consistently, condoms can help you and your partner to prevent most sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancies. Finding the perfect condom size leads to safer and more pleasurable sex for both partners. Condoms that are too tight can burst; if they're too big, they can slip off. If people are allergic to latex then non-latex condoms can be ordered. Research indicates that all condoms carrying the CE mark are suitable for anal sex when used responsibly with water based lubricants.
It is really important that lubricant is used for anal sex – to reduce the risk of bleeding and abrasions. Never use oil-based lubricants (such as hand creams, baby oil, cooking oil, sun creams, lip balm) with condoms, as these will perish the latex. Extra lubricant is not routinely required for vaginal sex. A 2012 report from B.A.S.H.H. /B.H.I.V.A. states that "the risk of slippage may be doubled with the additional use of lubrication for vaginal sex".
