My bf informed me recently that the condoms we have are likely to not be vegan, which is important to us, as we are both vegan. Apparently they (at least the flavored ones) contain casein, a milk protein. Does anybody know where we buy vegan ones? And is most lube vegan?

Thanks =)

You can buy vegan lube and vegan condoms online. Unfortunately, I cannot link you to a site I found as it is restricted to the 18 and older crowd, but you can google "vegan condoms" or "vegan lube" to find those sites yourself. If your boyfriend is over 18, he can order them online, or you will have to get a friend, sibling, or parent to do it. Otherwise, it doesn't appear that you will be able to buy vegan condoms or lube in stores (though it never hurts to try a specialty health store).
