Can't use latex? No problem: that doesn't have to mean going without the safer sex protections we want and need. You can use all the same barriers those can who can use latex can so long as you get their latex-free versions. Some people who can use latex still find they prefer the feel of non-latex barriers, which tend to conduct body heat better, so can provide greater sensitivity. And fret not: non-latex barriers work just as well as their latex brethren when it comes to preventing pregnancy or sexually transmitted infections.
What's inside? A variety of 12 non-latex condoms -- from Lifestyles SKYN, Durex, Unique Pull and Trojan, the FC2 inside/female condom -- 2 latex free dams and 2 pairs of nitrile (also latex-free) gloves.
Does sex with barriers feel more like sex with barriers than sex with a person? Are condoms breaking? Do you or your partners often feel sore or uncomfortable with sexual activities like intercourse, matsurbation or manual sex? Does sex with condoms feel a lot less good than it does without? Are you always using plenty of lubricant before and during sexual activities? No? Then that may be one of your big missing pieces that can change any or even all of that.
A little lube inside a barrier and plenty of the outside, on hands with masturbation or manual sex with a partner, and used before and during any sex with entry goes a very long way when it comes to pleasure, comfort and also helps barriers to be as effective as they can at preventing pregnancy or sexually transmitted illness.
What's inside? An assortment of 12 premium packettes -- water-based, silicone-based and hybrids -- from premium brands like überlube, Pjur, Encounter, Sliquid, Yes, Good Clean Love, Sensuva, Wicked, Fusion, ONE, and Hathor Aphrodesia.

A lot of people have the idea that thinner condoms aren't as durable or effective as thicker ones. Not true! In fact, studies done on thinner condoms often find them to be more durable, not less, and equally effective. And since thinner styles tend to feel a lot better, chances are good that people are going to be way more psyched to use them, and using them in the first place is essential for condoms to be effective at all: they can't be effective if we're not using them. If you feel like you really feel condoms when you're wearing them -- rather than a partner's body or your own parts -- even when using plenty of lube, then thinner styles are going to be your new BFF.
