Latex condoms are an effective form of contraception. If used properly, latex condoms will help to reduce the risk of transmission of HIV infection (AIDS) and many other sexually transmitted diseases, including chlamydia infections, genital herpes, genital warts, gonorrhea, hepatitis B, and syphilis.
To open, carefully peel back the top of the buttercup packaging on the condom with your hands. Never use your teeth. The condom is right way up, so carefully use your fingers to pull it out of the package ensuring that the pointy part of the condom faces away from the tip of the penis before you put it on. Squeeze the pointy end of the condom so that there’s no air trapped inside. If there is trapped air, you risk the condom splitting. Additionally, it's critical to make sure you put the condom on when the penis is fully erect, as you want to make sure it fits correctly and there are no baggy spots. We recommend always using lubricant on the outside of the condom as not only does extra lubricant increase sensitivity, but it also helps to prevent any breakages.
If you are uncircumcised, pull back the foreskin before keeping one hand at the head of the penis with the end of the condom between your forefinger and thumb, and use the other to roll the condom on all the way down the shaft to the base. Note: If the condom will not unroll, you have it inside out and you will need to use a new condom.
When done, hold the condom at the base while you are still erect so that it doesn't slip off. Then, when fully withdrawn, take the condom off. Dispose of it carefully in the trash bin—never in the toilet. Use a new condom for each act of sex.

What is the pH value of shine?
The pH of our lubricant is 4.0–5.0 (and the pH of a typical vagina ranges from 3.5–4.5). Our lubricant uses very minimal trace amounts of preservatives and citric acid as a pH balancer, well within the lines of the FDA guidelines. It is important to us that we make sure our product is as safe as possible.
