The principle of the female condom is the same as the male condom, only it is inserted into the vagina. He even looks like a large condom, except that it has a flexible inner ring that is inserted into the vagina and the outer ring which remains outside, at a distance of approximately 3 inches from the vagina. After the introduction of the condom in the vagina, the man can insert the penis into the condom. After ejaculation, the condom should pull out.

The female condom can be inserted both in the vagina and the anus, and this is done almost the same way.

Remember that if you use the female condom, the man should not use a male condom at the same time. This will create friction, which can lead to the fact that one or two condoms will tear.
