Can I use a condom twice? (Sex Query)

Can condoms be reused? Read more to find out the answer to this...

CondomsHi, I'm Jay (name changed),18 and in a committed relationship with my girlfriend. We are about to go on to the next base of being physical. My friend suggested that we can use a condom twice. I would like to know how far is this notion true?

Can I use a condom twice? This question has probably troubled mankind since we started using condoms (according to legend they were made out of a goat's bladder). However safe it may seem, it's a very bad idea to use a condom twice. In fact, you should immediately remove the condom after you ejaculate and before the penis loses its erection.

After the act, you should also dispose it properly. One should not throw it down the road or flush it down. Throw it in a bin or you can wrap it in a tissue and then dispose it off. A used condom, even if it seems clean and semen-free to the naked eye, might contain some semen which can lead to unwanted pregnancies or sexually transmitted diseases. The purpose of a condom is to prevent the sperms from entering the vagina and reusing it will completely defeat its purpose. So, once a condom is used, just throw it away properly.
