I am allergic to latex, so I use non-latex condoms. My question is about lubrication. I know that some lubes can be harmful for condoms, and I was wondering what lubes are safe to use for non-latex condoms. I am able to find info about what harms latex condoms, but I haven't been able to find anything related to non-latex condoms. I want to practice safer sex, but it is getting confusing.

Please help me.
Thank you!

Hi Aki and welcome to Scarleteen,

There aren't any lubes that are knwon to be harmful with non-latex condoms. Your best bet is probably going to be a good quality water-based lube, but should you use anything else know that it won't cause the condom to be less effective.

Does that help at all?
