When I put on a condom, how much of the tip do I need to hold to have enough room for when I come? I've often not given enough room and it broke. How much is usually enough?

HI Wolverine22,
It's usually about an inch of space. Many condoms have a reservoir tip on them so it's clearer where the tip ends.

If you find that there isn't enough roo, you can experiment with leaving more.

Another thing to consider is making sure there are no air bubbles in the condom; in other words, making sure that the condom fits snug around the shaft of the penis without there being air trapped between the condom and the shaft.

In case you haven't seen it, this article has some good step-by-step instructions for putting on condoms.
