Today I wanted to make sure that I could put on a comdom and yes I did it without much bother. Only thing is that when i moving my hand up my penis the roll would move halfway up and then when I went down it would go to the bottom again. I am just worried this might happen when I have sex or is it different from Mastrabating.

If the condom doesn't stay put, it may just be that it doesn't fit snugly enough. You might want to try using a condom in a different size - you shouldn't have any problem getting them in pharmacies.

(Good on you for practicing, by the way! That's a really important step towards being ready for sex. [Smile] )

I agree with LucysDiamonds: Good for you for practicing! Now, on to the issue of the condom roll-up.
As stated above, the size of the condom is a consideration. Another consideration is lubrication. I have experienced the same problem with condoms when I masturbate. I found that a dry hand would roll the condom up and then back down as you have described. However, I started using plenty of lubricant and the problem resolved itself.
I can see how the same theory would apply to sexual intercourse. Women produce vaginal secretions that lubricate the penis(wrapped in a condom for safe sex, of course) for intercourse naturally. However, you and your partner can't always count on the natural lubrication, so use WATER BASED lubricant for intercourse. The oil based lubes (like baby oil or petroleum jelly)will break the integrity of the condom down with amazing speed.
Thus, the point to remember is that lubricants are your friends, and WATER BASED lubricants are your best friends.

FYI, if it's rolling up, rather than slipping off, it may likely be a matter of a condom that is too SNUG, rather than too large.

Can you please explain what Snug means?

Thanks for the comments

Snug means that it might fit a bit too tightly, though it may not seem very tight, but just a bit tighter... did that help?

(Just to clear up - fitting snuggly means that it fights tightly around the base of the penis, and that it doesn't feel as though it's slipping/falling off, rolling up, or cutting off circulation or painful; it doesn't mean that it's fitting at all "too" rightly [Smile] )
