condom

a thin pouch that prevents STIs and pregnancy by preventing bodily fluids from the penis (such as semen) from entering the orifice (opening) in which it is placed (e.g. a vagina, an anus, a mouth), and vice-versa, by preventing fluids from the opening from entering the penis.

There is a male condom (which is typically known as a ‘condom’) which goes over the male’s erect penis, or there is the female condom (‘femidom‘) which is inserted into the vagina.
