Male organ protection is a big deal for all guys, and rightfully so – no one wants to put their favorite appendage at risk or do anything to impede male organ health! There are numerous steps one can take to help ensure male organ protection, but, especially for men who are sensually active with more than one partner, the most important is consistent and proper use of a barrier protection. But what are some good tips for proper barrier protection use that men should remember?

Read on to find out.


• Don’t recycle. This may seem like common sense, but it’s surprising how many men don’t know this. A barrier protection is meant to be used once and then disposed of. Even if a guy washes and sterilizes the barrier protection after use, there may still be dregs of male seed left inside. Also, after one use, the barrier protection may be stretched out and no longer fit snugly, or is may develop tiny tears which would affect its effectiveness.

• Check it out before using it. Barrier protections come with expiration dates, and for safety sake, don’t use an expired one if at all possible. (If an out-of-date barrier protection is all a guy has, and he is determined to have sensual activity, do use the expired barrier protection – but be aware that it may not offer the desired protection and there may be consequences.) Also, if the package containing the barrier protection is torn, use a different one.

• Store it in a cool, dry place. Moisture and hot sunlight can cause damage to a barrier protection.

• Put it on correctly. The manhood needs to be tumescent before the barrier protection is applied. Intact men should pull back the foreskin before applying. Leave a little room at the end of the barrier protection, and pinch the end closed. Then with the free hand, a man should unroll the member along the length of the shaft until it reaches the base. And be sure the fit is snug without being overly constricting. It pays for a man to try out a barrier protection brand and size on his own in order to make sure he has a proper fit, so that he doesn’t have to worry about that when preparing to have sensual activity.

• Use the right lubricant. Water-based lubricants are generally safe for latex barrier protections; oil-based ones are not, as they may bring about breakage.

• Don’t double-bag. Contrary to popular belief, using two barrier protections at once is not double the protection. Instead, the barrier protections are likely to rub against each other, creating enough friction that one or both may tear.

• Switch if needed. In the event that a man is gifted in terms of being able to carry on with penetrative coupling for an unusually long time, he may need to stop and switch to a new barrier protection before he is through. Generally, a barrier protection is considered safe for about 30 minutes of use. After that, friction becomes a problem and may result in tearing. So if a guy tends to go longer than a half hour, he should carry a back-up (or two). Also, the same barrier protection should not be used for both posterior and female organ penetration (no matter what the length of time in each position).

• Withdraw with care. After releasing seed, carefully withdraw. When accessible, grip the barrier protection by the base and hold onto it until withdrawn. Dispose of the barrier protection in a wastebasket (not the toilet).

Proper use of a barrier protection can help improve male organ protection where social diseases are concerned. Male organ protection from other issues can be enhanced through the use of a first class male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Since male organ sensation is paramount for sensual satisfaction, choose a crème that helps maintain that sensation, i.e., one with the neuroprotective ingredient L-carnitine. A crème with vitamin A is also desired, as this vitamin has anti-bacterial properties which protect the member and which also fight against persistent manhood odor.
