Condoms provide protection against both sexually transmitted infections (STI) and pregnancy. Lubricants enhance condom use, as they help prevent condom breakage and can make sexual activity more comfortable and pleasurable.

Only polyurethane and latex condoms protect against both STIs and pregnancy. (Condoms made of animal membrane should be used only for birth control, as they are more porous.)

External vs Internal

External – Sometimes called “male” condoms, these sheaths are designed to snugly cover the outside of a penis. Its tip provides a receptacle to collect semen after ejaculation. The sheaths may be made out of latex, polyurethane or animal membrane. They come lubricated and nonlubricated, with spermicide or without, or with a texture or flavor.

Internal – Also called “female” condoms, these pouches, made of polyurethane, were designed to line a vagina in order to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). However, they have also proven to provide protection from STIs when used in anal intercourse. Internal condoms provide excellent protection, and also offer a second alternative for people unable to use latex sheath condoms due to allergies or sensitivities.

Lube is important!

By reducing friction (skin on skin, latex on skin, etc.) lubricants add pleasurable sensations to sexual activity. Reduced friction helps lessen the likelihood of a condom break; it also helps prevent irritation, chafing, or breakage of the skin.

Water-based are typically considered the safest all-purpose lubricants. They are generally non-irritating and do not cause latex to deteriorate.

Silicone-based lubes are longer-lasting and safe to use with all condoms (latex or polyurethane) and any latex product (dams, gloves, etc)
