Internal Condoms

This post is also available in: 简体中文 (Chinese (Simplified)) ไทย (Thai) 한국어 (Korean)

Internal condoms, sometimes referred to as “female condoms” or Femidoms, work just like a regular condoms, but are worn internally. A large ring on the outside stops the internal condom from slipping and a smaller ring keeps the other end in place at the back of the vagina. Internal condoms can also be used for anal sex; however, the smaller ring must be taken out before inserting into the anus. Use plenty of lube on the inside of the internal condom, to prevent breakage.

Don’t use a condom at the same time as using the internal condom as they can rub together and break.

Internal condoms are especially handy in situations where regular condom use is tricky, like with very large penises or clients who have difficulty getting/maintaining erections. It can also be inserted up to 8 hours before penetration so it will not obstruct the spontaneity of the service and can assist in creating the illusion of providing a service without a condom, while still wearing a condom. Carefully remove the internal condom after each session and always use a new internal condom with every client.
