No one wants a condom to break, and if they're handled properly, put on correctly, and used with plenty of lube, they're unlikely to do so.

However, most things don't go as we want them to 100% of the time.

We've had a lot of users lately express concern that they won't know what a broken condom looks like.

We know that condoms don't just spring leaks; they completely self-destruct in utterly noticeable ways.

I think it might be helpful to folks who worry about not knowing if a condom has broken to hear from people who have experienced that happening.

So, did you ever have a condom break on you? If so, what did it look like? What did you learn from the experience that you would recommend to others for more effective condom use?
