Make sure the condom stays on during sex

If you wish to use lubricant then you should use a water-based lubricant, like those available from condom manufacturers.

Don't use oil based lubricants such as body lotions, moisturiser, massage oil, body oil, petroleum jelly, Vaseline etc with latex condoms. This is because they can weaken the condom, making it less effective.
