If you have an allergy or would simply like to try different types of condoms, latex-free condoms offer you a growing number of options.
These condoms are made from polyisoprene, coming in a variety of styles and a large size. The company says that these condoms are softer than latex condoms. The options here are numerous, with the originals, extra lubricated, large, dotted for a more intense feel, and a selection pack so you can try them all and see which ones you prefer.
These condoms are made from polyisoprene, and their boast-factor is that they don’t smell weird, and they are specially-shaped to be easy to put on and use. Durex at this stage only appears to make one variety of latex-free condoms.
The Trojan Supra Bareskins are made from polyurethane, and the company boasts about having the thinnest non-latex condoms on the market.
(This company also makes a selection of skins, condoms from animal intestines, which is a complicated variety of saving the planet and killing the animals. (We can’t win.) These condoms do not prevent STIs, just pregnancy.)
Female condoms are also generally latex-free, and people who use these – men and women – often say that they are better than normal condoms, once they got used to using them.
