Condom science is out of control these days. From crazy flavors to eco-friendly new materials, there are so many options for safe sex that you can almost spend as much time choosing a rubber as you do getting it on. We wouldn’t recommend that, however, so to save you some time, we put together a list of nine new condoms that you won’t believe exist. This way you can focus on the pleasure and not the pre-game. These new options are sure to blow your mind (in more ways than one).
The Vegan Condom
Glyde makes certified ethical, vegan & Fair Trade condoms. They are crafted through a special formula of plant-based ingredients like natural rubber latex and thistle extract, so the only animals in your bedroom will be you and your partner.
The Fair Trade Condom
Sustain is a brand new sustainable, Fair Trade, organic condom company marketed to women. Plus, 10 percent of their profits go to organizations that provide reproductive healthcare and family planning services to women in the U.S.
The Organically Flavored Condom
While chocolate, banana or cherry are pretty classic flavors, licorice is definitely something new. We’re not talking processed fake flavors either, here. Glyde Ultra Organic Licorice-flavored condoms are made with organic fruit and plant extracts to capture real licorice flavor (so you can skip the candy aisle and still satisfy a craving).
The Pinterest-Worthy Condom
Those little square wrappers aren’t doing you any favors, but Lovability condoms come in an adorable tin case with an easy-open tab (translation: no more risky “I’ll just use my teeth” situations). Bonus: Each tin contains an inspirational quote. Aw.
The On-Demand Condom
If you’re low on protection and need one now, customers in Los Angeles and San Francisco can get L. Condoms delivered every day from 11am-7pm. Lucky New Yorkers can get them delivered all day everyday.
The Eco-Friendly Condom
French Letter’s “Linger Lust” condoms are made in Germany using the highest international standards of CO² neutral production. That means their carbon footprint is zero, so you can heat up your sex life without contributing to global warming!
The Charitable Condom
While you’re having safe sex, your condom will be contributing to the cause, too. Sir Richard’s condoms partnered up with HIV/AIDS charity (RED) on a special edition (PRODUCT)RED condom. For each pack you buy, they’ll donate 5 percent of their profits to the fight against HIV/AIDS.
The Chemical-Free Condom
You watch out for processed foods and harmful chemicals in your beauty products, so why not your condoms? Sir Richard’s offers a condom that is free of glycerin, parabens and spermicide. They’re also vegan and PETA-approved.
The Futuristic (Coming Soon) Condom
The Origami condom is the first unrolled condom that’s engineered to bring you even more pleasure than traditional condoms. (Bonus: It kind of looks like a bendy straw.) The product is currently in clinical trials and still pending approval by the FDA and WHO, but the company hopes to announce distribution next year.
