Hey guys!

Just wondering, I hear of "improper or inconsistent use" of condoms, and I know that things like putting it on backwards or not having enough lubrication such that it tears/rips would qualify as improper use, but what about when they (including the staff here at Scarleteen)say that a condom "slipping off" could also qualify as improper use?

What does that mean exactly?
Cuz I know that when my girlfriend and I go at it, I do notice the condom moving up and down a bit, ever so slightly, sometimes maybe a centimeter up, then a centimeter down, but never more than that.

Is that a "condom slip"? It never strays further than upwards an inch of my base.

And if that does constitute a slip, does that mean that the pre-cum trapped in the top could shimmy its way down the side and then be left behind as the condom slides up, only to then be "swallowed up" in her vagina?

Very curious, looking forward to your replies :3

A condom slipping off is exactly that, when it comes partially or completely off the penis.

The condom moving a little during intercourse isn't a problem at all.

IN fact, I'd go so far as to say that you wouldn't want the condom to remain stretched tight, as that would increase friction which could promote breakage.
