are you sure you are rolling it in the right direction? the first time my bf and i had sex we put the condom on together. we couldnt roll it down til we realized we we had it on backwards and were trying to roll it in the wrong direction.

Are you using the right size of condoms ?

Also do you put a couple drops of lubricant in the tip of the condom before putting it on ?

Are you pushing your foreskin back as you roll the condom on ? (if you're uncircumcised )

Follow the steps careful. That might take times but you'll get it eventually. It sometimes take practice.

liverpoolfc,

I'll also guess that putting it on in the wrong direction is the cause. The condom is a rolled up tube. When it's rolled up it looks like a coin. If you put it on, say, heads up (this is only an imaginary heads up -- there is no actual heads or tails), the roll may be toward the inside and it will be hard to unroll. Flip it over so it is tails up and it should unroll onto your penis easily.

How can you tell if the roll is in the roll is on the outside or the inside

If you're holding the rolled-up condom by the little nub or tip, and the roll is on the inner side of the condom, it's backwards. If you're holding the tip of the condom, and the roll is on the outside of the ring, it's right side up.

You can use a condom or two and just practice getting comfortable eyeballing whether it's right or inside out, and rolling it down on your own in a non-sex encounter to get used to it.

Here's an idea. Take a condom that has been unrolled and somehow get it on your penis or on something else like penis. Then roll it up and see what the roll looks like.
