9 Benefits To Jerking Off With A Condom

Helps Conquer The Condom Anxiety

Helps conquer the condom anxiety

It is a well-known fact that many men have a very negative mindset when it comes to wearing a condom. 

It’s often seen as something that needs to be done instead of something that might enhance the sexual experience.

This tends to cause anxiety and make men nervous when it’s time to put the condom on before the act. 

They can lose the erection because of that, and it can very easily ruin the whole thing.

If you masturbate wearing a condom, you have an opportunity to change this stigma and reduce the anxiety that comes with wearing condoms. 

You can practice putting them on in a stress-free environment and show yourself that wearing a condom during sex can be a good thing. 


Easy Cleanup

Easy cleanup

Listen: 

No man likes the process that follows after the masturbation session. It’s messy, you need to have tissues, and you have to think about your surroundings. 

Masturbating with a condom solves this issue and makes the whole experience so much neater. 

You don’t have to worry about shooting your shot on the wall and then scrubbing it off after. 

Or, staining furniture and having to explain yourself to your roommates why there is a random stain on the sofa.

No one likes those awkward moments…

So, when you masturbate with a condom, you finish, take it off and toss it into a bin.

Masturbation has never been so easy, am I right?


Ensures Hygiene

Ensures hygiene

If you’re a guy who likes to spice things up and use toys and tools for masturbation, you know that it’s a hassle to clean it all afterward. 

Those of you who own a fleshlight know what I’m talking about.

When you masturbate with a condom, you save yourself a lot of time as you don’t need to clean your toys after every single use. 

You finish your solo play and put them back into their place till the next time. 

Also:

If you suffer from STIs, it might be good to wear a condom during masturbation so that you don’t get re-infected once you’re healed and decide to use the same toys.

And even if you don’t have STIs, there are still infections that you can catch when using toys without a condom. 

You know that you’re not sanitizing your toys after every single use, and I don’t blame you, who has time for that?

So, save yourself from infections and additional cleanup and try masturbating with a condom. 


Prepares You For The Real Thing Better

Prepares you for the real thing better

Some men like to stimulate the actual sex experience when they’re masturbating. 

So, using a condom might help you get into the mood a little bit easier. 

Also, you can experiment with different types and textures and sizes of condoms, so that when the time comes to try it with a partner, you know what works for you.

You can experiment and find which brands and materials you like the most and which feel the best. 

When it comes time to have sex with your partner, they’ll appreciate your knowledge in this department, and it will make the whole experience so much better for both of you. 


Helps With Sensitivity Issues

Helps with sensitivity issues

Some men say that wearing a condom makes them lose an erection, and some men say that they don’t feel anything with a condom on.

Some men suffer from premature ejaculation, which makes sex embarrassing for them (even though it shouldn’t). 

When you’re masturbating with a condom, you have an opportunity to work on your sensitivity issues. 

For men who have premature ejaculation, wearing condoms might be a great option, and they can practice during solo play to last longer. 

Those of you who don’t feel anything can spend time experimenting with different materials, textures, and sizes.

You see, you have an opportunity to take advantage of your solo play and improve your sex life. 


Changes Your Perspective About Condoms

A lot of people have a somewhat negative view of condoms. 

Okay, a VERY negative view of condoms. 

It’s seen as something that hinders your pleasure, which makes most penis owners hesitant to wear one. 

The thing is, condoms are often life-savers (and life-preventers)

It would be so much better if penis owners could embrace them instead of avoiding wearing them. Wearing one while solo can also be a small step in changing how you think about condoms. 

Masturbating with condoms can create positive associations to wearing condoms during intercourse. 

Also, having solo fun with rubber on can train you to focus on the pleasurable sensation instead of the negatives, making your partnered play all the better.


It Might Help You Last Longer

Having a short fuse, so to say, can be a problem during sex. But it can also dampen your solo fun. Cumming too fast shortens your play time and your pleasure. 

The sensitivity issues some people experience with condoms may actually benefit you.

 Masturbating with a barrier will dampen stimulation you feel, helping you last longer.

On the other hand, some guys have trouble keeping it up because of a variety of issues – mental or physiological. Condoms can actually help with that too!

A condom with a snug fit around the base of your penis might work similarly to a cock ring and help you stay hard longer. Just make sure it’s not too snug that it causes discomfort. 

We’ve made an article on the best condoms to help you last longer in bed you can check.


It Gets You Used To Lube

Lube is your friend whether you’re playing solo or with a partner. 

It prevents injuries caused by friction, provides comfort, AND makes you more susceptible to pleasure. 

Most condoms are pre-lubricated—not only to make you feel good, but also to prevent breakage. 

But mostly, you need to add on a little bit more – on the inside (for you) and the outside (for an easier glide). Figuring out how much lube to use is also a good factor to practice while solo.

There are many different kinds and brands of personal lubricants. 

Masturbating with condoms and trying out different lubes will also help you find what works best for you. 

You can try a classic lube or maybe something with extra features like warming, tingling, or even numbing effects.

Pro tip: Make sure the lube is compatible with your condom, though.

Safer Mutual Masturbation

If you like the fun of mutual masturbation or you and your partner are avoiding any kind of penetration for whatever reason, you should use protection just as you would with penetrative sex. 

If there’s any uncertainty about your or your partner’s health status, using a condom can prevent contact with bodily fluids, which may carry viruses or bacteria. 


3 Techniques How To Masturbate With A Condom

Involve Your Partner In Your Solo Play

1. Involve your partner in your solo play

I know it’s called ‘solo play’ for a reason, but sometimes it might be fun to involve your partner as well. 

Especially if you struggle to believe that masturbating with a condom can be a good experience. 

Some men say that the thing that turns them on when they’re masturbating with a condom is ‘the putting it on‘ part. 

It reminds them of sex, so they get horny for the solo play.

I would recommend asking your partner to put on a condom for you or maybe watch you while you please yourself. 

This way, you’ll be more excited and get into masturbating with a condom easier when you first try it.

Consider checking out our best sex tips for men guide to take your game to a new level.  


2. Use lots of lube

While most condoms have the lube already inside, which makes it feel good, it might be a good idea to add even more. 

Add the lube to the tip of the condom and on the sides, so that it prevents the breakage and makes the whole experience even more sensational. 

For this male masturbation technique, you can use any lube you like and don’t be afraid to be generous with it.


3. Try using Tenga Egg

If you want a more intense experience, you might want to try using Tenga Egg instead of condoms. 

It’s an egg-shaped toy, that kind of is a mix of a fleshlight and a condom. 

It has an opening on one side, where you put the lube in and insert your penis. 

What is great about it and why it’s better than using a condom is the fact that it has texture inside, and you can use it a few times if you’re careful. 

The reason Tenga Egg is better than the fleshlight is that there is no case, so you control the intensity and pressure. 

Also, the cleanup is way easier than with a fleshlight. 

You can get your Tenga Egg here on their website.


What Some of The Guys Are Saying on Reddit

If you still feel unsure whether masturbating with a condom is for you, check out what these guys are saying about their experiences:

I do. It takes a long time for me to orgasm because I am taking an SSRI. If I “practice” with a condom, I will be used to the lower sensitivity that a condom creates. Hopefully that will translate into shorter time to orgasm when I’m with my girl.

A friend of mine (yeah, right) would sometimes use condoms while masturbating to a) get used to the sensation of wearing a condom during sex or b) to use with a fleshlight style toy for the expedient reason of making cleanup easier.

It’s a good idea to masturbate with a condom if you have issues with performance with condoms with a partner, so as to acclimate yourself to the sensation. Worked for me, er, my ‘friend.’

Who has time for cleaning up bodily fluids? It’s already lubed enough, there’s little cleanup, and practice makes perfect. I may or may not do this because my condoms tend to expire. They really need to extend those dates man.

Life’s rough.
