consistent broken condoms

the past 4 out of 5 times I've had sex the condom's broken. Its been with two different women. Aside from pregnancy and STDs to worry about, I'm more worried about what I did wrong and why this is happening.

Before these incidents, I hadnt had sex in a few months, and this has never been a problem before. I know the problem is me and not the condom because it was 2 different brands that have broken.

I'm leaving space and the end of the condom before I roll down on my penis, so I think I'm using them right. Right? For some reason I think the problem is that as I'm having sex the friction pushes the condom lower and lower on the penis, causing the buffer zone at the end to dissapear, and eventually the pressure become so great at the end of the condom that it breaks. I don't know, thats just an idea.

Any advise... I NEED to solve this little problem.

Re: consistant broken condoms

what kind of lube are you using? if any, things like vasaline will break down the rubber in the condoms.

Re: consistant broken condoms

And make sure you're using latex condoms. They're less likely to break than the polyurethane variety. (And as the previous poster said, no oil based lubricants -- only water based lubricants)

Are you using Chinese condoms? If so, you might try having some sent to you from North America or Western Europe. I don't know if the West and China have different manufacturing standards for prophylactics.
