Some condoms are not lubricated at all, some are lubricated with a silicone substance, and some condoms have a water-based lubricant. The lubrication on condoms aims to make the condom easier to put on and more comfortable to use. It can also help prevent condom breakage.

How do you put on a condom on an uncircumcised penis?

It's just like any other penis, but most men prefer to put on the condom with the foreskin pulled back. After unwrapping the condom, retract the foreskin to expose the head of the penis. Apply a drop of a water-based or silicone-based* lubricant to the head of the penis. This will allow the condom to move around on the head of the penis during sex. Take the condom and unroll it down on to the shaft of the penis. The condom should be rolled all the way down. Use additional lubricant on the outside of the condom. *Do not used oil based lubricants like vaseline with condoms. They can cause condoms to break.
