This is something that you might not think about that could make a difference in your sex experience. Putting the condom on can be a difficult thing. Some guys may lose their hardness when putting it on. One thing that confounds this is fumbling around with the wrapper while trying to keep the erection up--the focus on the wrapper can cause some loss of concentration. It's even worse if you have to get up and get it from some hiding place. Here's what you do. Set the condom on a dresser or end table unwrapped prior to beginning the sex act. Do your foreplay or whatever you need to do, and then when you're ready to insert, casually grab the condom, which should be in arm's length and slip it on (correctly). It goes without saying that your hands should be clean when handling the condom, and it should be on a clean surface. If you practice doing this, then you can come across as smooth while still being safe.
