4 Best Non-Latex Condoms For Sensitive Skin

So you just slayed the women of your dreams. Beautiful face, banging body – great sex. You’re on top of the world.

There’s only one problem: your dick feels like it’s been rolling around in poison ivy.

How can this be! You used protection! You took all precautionary measures.

You covered your stump before you humped.

You armored your tank before you entered her flank.

How could you have contracted an STI! Damn those condoms! They failed you when you needed them most.

But wait, what’s this? All STI and STD screening comes back clean? What could be the problem?

Latex?

Did you know that 19 million Americans are allergic to latex? And considering most available condoms are made out of the stuff, it’s extremely common for men (and women) to experience their first allergic reactions to latex after copulation.

While symptoms can vary in severity from person to person, allergic reactions typically include:

  • Itching
  • Redness
  • Bumps
  • Swelling
  • Hives
  • Rash

Considering most of these reactions are also typical with many STIs, it’s not uncommon for guys (and gals) to mistakingly believe they contracted something from their partner.

So what’s the alternative? Latex condoms are by far the most common condoms available, but luckily non-latex variants aren’t in short supply.

What Are Non-Latex Condoms Made Of?

Non-latex condoms are typically available in these 3 materials: polyisoprene, polyurethane, or lambskin.

Polyisoprene – The most popular non-latex condom material, polyisoprene is basically a synthetic version of natural latex. While it shares pretty much all the same physical characteristics (and feel) as a latex condom, it doesn’t contain the natural plant proteins that tend to be the cause of allergic reactions. The most popular choice for polyisoprene condoms are SKYN by Lifestyles. While they are slightly more expensive than traditional latex condoms, polyisoprene condoms are an excellent alternative for people with latex allergies.

Benefits of polyisoprene condoms:

  • Latex free
  • Protects against unwanted pregnancy
  • Protects against STDs
  • Protects against HIV

Negatives:

  • Slightly more expensive than latex

Polyurethane – As the name suggests, polyurethane condoms are made from a thin, clear plastic called polyurethane. While sharing the same functionality and efficacy as latex and polyisoprene condoms, polyurethane condoms are usually thinner, stronger, and more loose fitting. While some men prefer the unrestricted feel of polyurethane condoms, others complain that they are too loose and baggy. Ultimately the feel of a polyurethane condom all comes down to personal preference. Polyurethane condoms are typically more expensive than latex and polyisoprene condoms.

Benefits of polyurethane condoms:

  • Latex free
  • Thinner
  • Stronger
  • Odor free
  • Protects against pregnancy
  • Protects against STDs
  • Protects against HIV

Negatives:

  • More expensive than latex and polyisoprene
  • Lack of elasticity might cause condom to fall off during intercourse

Lambskin – Lambskin condoms are one of the least common non-latex condoms you’ll come across. While the name is a bit misleading, lambskin condoms are actually made from the thin intestines of a lamb. Known for their comfort and sensitivity, these condoms are a great option for couples whose sole intent is to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Unfortunately due to the porous nature of lambskin (intestines) these condoms are not effective, or FDA approved for preventing the transmission of STDs or HIV. Lambskin condoms are typically one of the most expensive condoms to buy.

Benefits of lambskin condoms:

  • Latex free
  • Comfortable
  • Very thin
  • Natural feel
  • Protects against unwanted pregnancy

Negatives:

  • Doesn’t protect against STDs
  • Doesn’t protect against HIV
  • Expensive

SKYN – Elite

One box of SKYN Elite latex free condoms for sensitive skin

Ultra thin and ultra soft, the Elite condom from SKYN is basically everything us guys are looking for in a condom: natural feel. Constructed using SKYN’s patented SKYNFEEL™ material, this condom feels so natural, you may be inclined to look down during intercourse to make sure it’s still around your dick. And that’s kind of the point of the SKYN Elite; to remain completely undetectable. After all, if I wanted to feel a condom, I could just wrap a garbage bag around my cock.

What I like about SKYN Elite:

• Barely there

Fuck condoms. Fuck em all. Unfortunately condoms are a necessity that many of us guys must deal with. And it would appear that SKYN’s lab geeks share that same sentiment, because they constructed a condom that ceases to exist once it’s around your wiener. Seriously the SKYN Elite feels so thin and natural, you may start wondering if it slipped off into the abyss during copulation.

• Easy out

I’ll admit it, having to use condoms kind of sucks – especially in the heat of the moment. There are few things that can kill a boner quite like struggling around in the dark with a condom wrapper. Not only does it delay the action, it also kind of makes you look like a wimpy bitch. Thankfully SKYN has got your back, and makes their wrappers easy to open in light or dark situations. While it’s not the biggest deal in the world, it is a nice little touch that in time, I’m sure you’ll appreciate.

• No odor

“The smell of rubber really turns me on.” – No one ever.

One of humanities biggest complaints about latex condoms is that they fucking stink. At least it’s my biggest complaint, and that’s good enough for me. One of the things I really appreciate about the SKYN Elite is the lack of odor. While they aren’t completely odorless (even water has an odor for fucks sake), they are a HUGE improvement over the nostril raping that a latex condom doles out.

• Sensitive skin safe

That’s why you’re here isn’t it? SKYN Elite are simply one of the best condoms you can get, period. They just so happen to be non-latex, and allergen free for guys (and gals) with sensitive skin. It’s kind of a win, win, win.


Trojan – Supra

My pick for best polyurethane condom is the Trojan Supra. These extremely thin condoms offer incredibly natural feel, but still maintain herculean type strength and durability to prevent unwanted pregnancies, and STIs. Throw in the fact that they virtually have no odor, makes these non-latex condoms always a good choice for a dick down.


Durex – RealFeel

While these are made from the same stuff as SKYN condoms (polyisoprene), they have their own unique feel and texture. Thin and comfortable enough to forget you’re wearing it, the Durex RealFeel condom gets 2 boners up for comfort and natural feel. And with little to no fragrance, it makes me wonder why anyone would choose to use a latex condom again.


SKYN – Extra Studded

ONE BOX OF SKYN EXTRA STUDDED NON-LATEX CONDOMS FOR SENSITIVE SKIN

Literally make waves in bed with these SKYN Extra studded condoms. Boasting all the same specs as the SKYN Original, but with a wavy, studded texture that’ll have your dick doing the happy dance. Constructed with SKYN’s patented SKYNFEEL™ material, these textured, non-latex condoms almost feel better than wearing nothing at all. Sorry SKYN, rawdog FTW.
