I am curious.

I am uncirumsized. When putting a condom on, I should pull it back, right? But how far? All the way down? Or just past the tip? I noticed that when I pull it all the way down, on withdrawal, it has a tendency to nearly come off.

I assume this is a normal problem, but I just don't want any accidents to happen. So any input would be nice.

From our condom basics article:

If you are uncircumcised, push your foreskin back while you're putting the condom on. Once most of your penis is covered, you can push the foreskin up again gently.

If you want to read the rest of the article, it's at

I realize that quote isn't clear about how far to push the foreskin back, but hopefully some other posters have experience or advice on that.

My boyfriend has an uncircumcised penis, and I asked him how far he pulls his foreskin down before putting a condom on. He said he pulls it just past the head, and then puts the condom on. I hope I helped! :-)
