I'm not sure how common this issue is, but I find that sometimes during sex, all the movement that is happening pushes the condom up towards the base of the penis so that the reservoir tip that we leave at the end is lost.

The condom fits snugly and is the right size. I leave about an inch at the tip to hold the semen. Alot of times however, when I check the condom during sex, I noticed that the reservoir tip is much shorter in length (or almost completely gone) because the condom has been pushed up.

That's why a lot of times my partner says that he feels like he cannot ejaculate, and I wonder if it's because there isn't enough space at the tip for him to?

Hi HyphenRow and welcome to Scarleteen,

Does your partner not ejaculate during intercourse then?


Before the condom goes on, are you putting a couple of drops of lube in the tip of it? having a little bit of moisture in the end of the condom can allow the tip to move more freely around the head of the penis. Mind, you don't want more than a few drops of lube in there as you don't want the condom to have any help slipping off.

Hi Robin!

Sometimes he does not ejaculate during intercourse and sometimes he can, but for some reason it takes a long while. Sometimes it can go on for over an hour and that's definitely longer than average.

And before the condom goes on, we don't put any lube on so that shouldn't be the issue.

I think maybe you misunderstood Robin's point about lube: putting a drop or two on the inside of the condom is actually recommended, and helps the condom move freely so that you don't end up with the whole thing being shoved towards the base of the penis and sort of getting stuck there. It can also make condoms feel better for the partner wearing them, so if you haven't tried putting a bit of lube on the inside, give that a go and see if it helps.

Thanks for the tip!

I definitely think I'll try that next time.
