Latex is the most common condom material in the market. However, some people may have latex allergies or just don’t like using the rubber. Whatever the case, there are other alternative materials in the market you can explore. This guide is meant to help you out when shopping for non-latex condoms.
Choosing Non-Latex condoms
- Know your Non-Latex Materials
There are several non-latex materials in the market. Here is an overview;
These are the most popular alternatives to latex. Polyurethane is a type of plastic that is non-porous. It performs at the same level with latex in protection against unwanted pregnancies and spread of sexually transmitted diseases. Condoms made for this material are thinner and conduct heat better making sex feel almost raw. A thing many men crave when using condoms.
This natural latex- free rubber is a great alternative for people with latex allergies and vegans. It has all latex properties except the milk protein casein that cause latex allergies. Although thicker than polyurethane, polysisoprene is sketchier, softer, and have a more natural feel making sex more pleasurable. It is FDA approved for strength and safety.
This is a non-latex type of rubber material commonly used in female condoms. While most people shopping for condoms rarely consider female condoms, they are great alternatives for men who loss erection when using male condoms. Nitrile is also oil resistant hence, can be used with oil-based lubricants without weakening.
Lambskin has been the most preferred alternative for couples with latex allergies. There are made from an intestinal membrane know as cecum extracted from sheep intestines. Lambskin gives you a skin-to-skin feeling making sex all natural. They are a great contraceptive method to prevent unwanted pregnancy. However, lambskin does not protect you from sexually transmitted diseases like Syphilis or HIV. The skin has microscopic pores that allow bacteria and virus to get through. If you are looking for an overall protection, stick to polyisoprene or polyurethane.
- Size Matters
Condoms come in small, medium or large sizes. When it comes to non-latex material, getting the right size is crucial. Materials such as polyurethane, nitrile and lambskin are less stretchy than latex. This means you need to get the right length and girth if the condom is to serve you perfectly. If too small, you might need to force it in, risking breakage. If it’s too loose, it will slip of during sex. You can opt for regular size if you have a normal girth (between 55-56mm girths). But for those with smaller or larger girths, please measure yourself to know which sizes will work for you. Using a tape measure, wrap around your erect penis to get the circumference. Also measure your length from the base to the head tip penis. Reputable adult shops like Peaches and Screams always indicate the size on the product portfolio for your respect.
- Think about Additional Pleasure
Besides protection against unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases. Think about added bonuses to your pleasure body. Some of these can include:
Pleasure-Shaped: Different shapes will make for heightened sensitivity and pleasure. Choose from flared, teat-end, reservoir and more to restrict or increase sensitivity to the penis nerve endings. While shape is largely a personal preference, a looser tip allows more movement of the penis increasing the sensation. The tip also works as a pouch to hold the ejaculation.
Textured: consider additional sensations from ribbed, studded, and dotted or a combination of two textures to make penetration more pleasurable for both you and your partner. Make every thrust sensational and enjoyable than the last.
Flavoured: make oral sex even more pleasurable; choose from a wide variety of flavours from strawberry, orange, banana, apple, bacon, chocolate, vanilla, and more. When you are receiving that B-job, she won’t be thinking about anything else but to savour she low calories sweet treat. And with all that passion, you will be shaking with deep dark and tasty eroticism.
Lubricated (sensational and delayed climax): Most non-latex condoms will come lubricated to reduce friction which tends to weaken the surface causing breakage. While the smooth is good, some lubricates haves added advantages. Some have climax control lubricants to delay ejaculation and give you a longer lasting erection. You know it helps to have a longer stamina to thrust your partner hard till they curl with orgasm. Other has spermicide, killing sperms the moment they swim out. You certainly won’t have to worry about any unwanted pregnancies when using these. Still others have sensational warming or cooling lubricants to increase sensation during sex. This game of two has never been so erotic.
- Consider the Strength Level
Non-latex are either marked regular strength or ultra-strong. Regular strength is the standard thickness of most condoms. However, for people who like extra security during play, there are ultra-strong condoms which are thicker providing an extra layer of protection. While both are equally effective in protecting you against unwanted pregnancies and STD/STIs, thinner condoms are more pleasurable than thicker ones as they allow more body heat transfer during sex. Choose whichever fulfils your needs. Be sure to check the label for FDA-approved mark.
