ConDEMO is perfect for teaching & practicing all steps of proper condom use. It has condom-like package with perforated edges & an expiration date. It is designed for use in settings where actual condoms are not allowed.
1. Clearly explain to youth that ConDEMO is not a real condom and will not be protective against pregnancy or sexually transmitted infections (STIs). The ConDEMO is an educational aid to show (practice) all the steps of proper condom use.
2. Demonstrate all the steps of proper condom use with the ConDEMO on a water bottle, a volunteer’s fist and forearm, or on your own foot and lower leg. If using your own foot and lower leg, sit on a tall stool so the entire group can see the demonstration.
3. Because there is no reservoir tip, be sure to pinch the tip and explain the importance of leaving room at the top of the ConDEMO.
4. At the end of the demonstration, remind the youth that the ConDEMO is not a real condom and offers no protection against pregnancy, STIs, or HIV.
