What is a condom? And why are they so popular for ensuring safe sex?

Well, firstly, barrier methods of contraception (which is what a condom is) are the only type of contraception that protects you and your partner from STI's as well as unwanted pregnancy.

When used correctly, they offer an astonishing 98% success rate, but in order to be properly protected, you need to know what you're doing.

In this weeks video, Jess and Sammi give you the lowdown on latex (and non-latex) love-gloves, condom-friendly lubes and everything else you need to know before putting one on.

Come back next week for part 2, when we show you exactly how to put a condom on (properly!)
