May the 4th be with you! How to explain condoms to kids.

May the 4th be with you! Have you explained to your kids what condoms are?
 Said a six year old to his Mum when ‘condom’ was mentioned on the car radio…
“…I know what a condom is! The man uses the condom to lie down with the lady so she doesn’t have a baby…”A suggestion for younger children as part of the amazing story of how humans are created:
“…A condom is a special thin piece of rubber, kind of similar to a balloon that easily goes onto the penis and collects the sperm so that they don’t travel up to meet the egg..”Why would you stop the ​sperm getting to the egg? says the child.”…Because sometimes adults might choose to enjoy sexual intercourse as a way of showing their love and respect and care for each other, they don’t always want make a baby, so a condom helps with this…”A suggestion for older children:
“…Condoms prevent some infections that can be spread through sexual contact, from passing onto another person…”

“…Condoms should be used for all penetrative sexual contact to prevent pregnancy and STIs, they make sexual intimacy safe and fun…here I bought you some for you to practice using and become familiar with, its very important that they are used properly and they take a bit of getting used to…”
