Hi, Scarleteen!

This certain situation has got me worried because I certainly never expected for it to happen. Last night my boyfriend and I were grinding on each other with me on top when the condom slid up half-way. We realised, of course, that the condom didn't fit him very well so we stopped and changed condoms (different brand).

What I'm concerned about is that precum might've already reached the base of his penis and I came in contact with it when I was grinding on top of him. If this happened, this will already fall into the category of Direct Contact and has moderate risk, is this right? Or did the condom somehow damage the precum? Is this even a valid concern?

Condoms are designed to keep fluids primarily in the tip, so I don't see a reason to be concerned here. The condom didn't break of come all the way off, so you didn't have a condom failure: therefore you can assume it did what it was supposed to do.

Thank you for the response, Karybu! Another question though: what my boyfriend and I did was non-penetrative, would the answer be the same if there was any penetration involved?

I think this concerns me because I like knowledge on how condom prevents leaking of fluids even if it slipped from the penis halfway. Would it be too much if I ask for assistance in helping to find legit articles about it?

Thank you!

Yes, the answer would be the same; in both cases, the important point is that the condom did not come off all the way.

As for how a condom prevents fluids from leaking, I confess I'm not entirely sure how to answer that, because it's sort of like trying to explain how an umbrella keeps you from getting wet if it's raining. Maybe I'm misunderstanding your question though?

When you use that analogy, my question does seem to come off as a bit silly. Haha! Again, thank you very much for your help, Karybu. [Smile]

I wasn't at all implying that your question was silly, and I apologize if it came across that way! Please let me know if you need more clarification and I'll do my best. [Smile]
