The male condom is worn on the penis during the sexual act and should be worn for any skin-to-skin contact between genital parts. The condom acts as a physical barrier and prevents any contact between the penis and vagina. It also prevents all bodily liquid exchanges and traps sperm inside the condom to be thrown away after sex.
