The reason this question came about is that me and my boyfriend, being the mature people that we are, were filling an unusable condom (we found that the brand was too small) up with water and it made a DAMN good water balloon. Obviously, water molecules are smaller than sperm. This got us thinking- Would filling a condom up with water after use allow us to check for any small rips/breaks?

(This may sound ridiculous, but I'm just curious..)

Hey there, Bun Bun-

While I suppose it could work, I really don't think that filling up a condom with water after use to make sure that there's no hole is necessary- when condoms are used correctly and consistently and in the right size, they rarely break; when they do, it's usually quite obvious.

Read Condom Basics: A User's Manual to be sure that you're putting them on correctly.

If you want to use condoms as water balloons for fun, well, I suppose that Scarleteen doesn't have a problem with that (although I imagine regular balloons are cheaper)- but for testing purposes, it seems a little extreme.

Hope this has helped.
