The most common kinds of male contraception include condoms, withdrawal or pulling out, outercourse and vasectomy. These contraceptives have their merits, demerit and level of effectiveness.
This is a thin rubber sheath worn over an erect penis. It prevents pregnancies and sexually transmitted disease (STDs). They create a barrier that keeps semen and body fluids from coming in contact with each other. Condoms are made in different forms like: latex, plastic or lambskin. Most men use the latex condom, those sensitive to latex can use plastic condoms. Condoms are lubricated to prevent irritation or pain during sex. They are either oily based or water-based lubricant. It is better to use the water-based product as oil-based lubricants can damage the condoms.
Effectiveness: Chances of pregnancy and STIs is 98%

It generally excludes the penetrative aspects of vaginal, anal, or oral sexual activity, but includes various forms of sexual and non-sexual activity, such as frottage, mutual masturbation, kissing, or cuddling.
Effectiveness: 100 %
