Finger condoms, also known as finger cots, are a great way to protect your fingers during intimate activities. Here’s our guide on how to use one, including the variety of benefits of using a finger condom when engaging in sexual activities.
What is a Finger Condom?
A finger condom is a protective barrier that is used to prevent the spread of bacteria during intimate activities. It is made of soft, flexible materials such as latex, and is designed to slide over the tip of the finger and cover the finger from the base to the tip.
Why Use a Finger Condom?
Finger condoms are used to protect the fingers during intimate activities. They provide a barrier between the skin and bodily fluids, reducing the risk of infection or transmission of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). They are also used to protect intimate body parts from scratches and other injuries.
How to Use a Finger Condom
Using a finger condom is straightforward. It’s placed on the finger prior to penetration like a regular condom. The first step is to place the finger condom on the fingertip. Roll the finger condom all the way down toward the base of the finger. Make sure to smooth out any air that may have become trapped between the condom and the finger.
If you want to use more than one finger, use a separate finger condom for each finger. After use, take off the finger condom, wrap it in a tissue and throw it in the rubbish bin. Do not reuse finger condoms.
Finger Condom Benefits
Finger condoms have many benefits, including:
- Hygiene: Finger condoms are easy to clean up after use. You can remove and dispose of the finger condom, then wash your hands without the concern of bodily fluids remaining under a fingernail.
- Easy to use and cost-effective: Finger condoms are easy to use and are cost-effective options for safe sex.
- Protective barrier: Finger condoms provide a barrier between the skin and bodily fluids, reducing the risk of infection or transmission of STIs.
How Do Finger Condoms Help with Injuries?
Finger condoms are primarily used during sexual activities to protect against injuries, particularly if one partner has an existing injury. They serve as a barrier between the injured area and the partner, reducing the risk of transmitting bacteria or causing further harm. For instance, using a finger condom can be beneficial if one partner has a cut or abrasion.
