The Perfect Choice for Latex Allergy Sufferers

Flexible, more natural feeling, and safer than other non-latex alternatives, these condoms are latex sensitive and allergy-friendly and feel great.
Great for sensitive people or allergy sufferers
costs more than regular condoms, but that's expected from a specially made product.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review
After finding out I have a latex allergy, I was seriously disgruntled, both sexually, and as a consumerist. Fearing my only choices were sheepskin condoms that smell quite horribly, and the idea of it being made from an actual dead animal’s insides left me squeamish, or the polyurethane condoms that tend to be on the thick side, I was pleasantly surprised to come across Liifestyles’ polysoprene Skyn condoms.

Polysoprene is a wonderful little compound whipped up in a lab that results in a soft, natural feeling condom that's just as safe and flexible as latex, without sacrificing thickness and sensitivity that you lose with the polyurethane condoms, which are also a lot stiffer and tend to be harder to put on.

These condoms look and feel natural, and I personally have found them to have more sensation than a lot of their non-latex companions. Lifestyles has also taken care to avoid natural rubbers in their formula, so for those of us that are hyper-sensitive to any type of product can use them safely.
Both men & woman will enjoy them. The guys will not notice much of a difference between a regular condom and these. They still go on the same and feel good. The lubricant that comes on them I’ve found compliments the natural lubricant the body makes quite well, and doesn’t become sticky after prolonged use. Generally they don’t require any additional lubrication, but if you are in it for a long session, or tend to be a little dry, they go well with any water-based lubricants (Like its brethren, you cannot use oil-based lubricants without running the risk of breaking down the condom).

I highly recommend these for anyone, not just latex allergy sufferers. They feel great, and you don't have to worry about any allergic reactions from you or your partner.
They are the only condoms we keep in the house now. A true bedside must.
