These days, sensitivities and allergies are, unfortunately, as common as a cold. However, for those with latex allergies, this doesn’t have to be the end of the line for your in regard to dating. There are plenty of premium non-latex options for your protection and enjoyment that offer just as much quality–if not more–than a latex condom.
Here are three of the best non-latex condoms on the market today:
That’s right: Durex, a brand trusted for over 80 years for high-quality, affordable protection, has a line of non-latex condoms! These are pre-lubricated condoms made with polyisoprene, a recently-developed synthetic latex substitute designed for those with latex allergies to enjoy the same safety and sensuality offered by other Durex products. The Durex Avanti Bare Real Feel Polyisoprene line is designed to be both thin and durable, and shaped for quick, easy application.
These condoms offer a heightened sensitivity for the wearer and pleasant scent and taste for their partner that is seldom matched by any other condom manufacturer. If you’re looking for a high-quality, affordable non-latex condom to suit your needs, Durex has you covered.
This polyurethane condoms come from a Japanese-imported brand and are, quite literally, the thinnest non-latex condoms available, if not the thinnest ever made. Sagami Original 001 Regular-Size, Ultra Thin Condoms
measure an astounding 0.01 mm in thickness–to give you an idea, that’s about 1/6 the thickness of human hair! Despite how thin this product is, it’s extremely durable–Sagami has spent over 10 years developing and stress-testing over 20,000 units to ensure that they can offer the best in both pleasure and protection.
As you can see, Sagami Originals are truly designed to be the closest thing you’ll feel to wearing nothing at all. You may find yourself checking to make sure it’s still there, but don’t fret–the material is extremely durable and resistant to breakage. On the downside, with a diameter of only 36mm, these condoms can be a tight fit, especially at first, and may get a little bit loose from stretching. However, nothing currently on the market delivers quite like Sagami can in the thinness and durability of their non-latex condoms.
Lifestyles now offers the first textured non-latex condom made out of polyisoprene! The design itself is a combination of wavy ridges and studs to hit all those sensitive areas just right, all while offering both the sensitivity and the strength of ultra-thin, premium latex. Rest assured that Lifestyles Skyn Intense Feel Polyisoprene Condoms won’t disappoint when you need them most, and as such an affordable price point for the quality, they’re quite the steal!
The texture offers satisfying sensations, especially in comparison to the regular Lifestyles Skyn condoms. On the downside, these are a little thicker than the other brands mentioned here, and due to the varied textures, you may want add a little extra lube to these. Overall though, the Intense feel condoms are both reliable and, well, intense!
