It may be hard for 20-somethings to believe that more mature ladies still manage to get it on, but we do. What’s hard for me to believe is how many condom options are available now. Back when I was one of those 20-somethings, all we had were basic “vanilla” condoms, and I’m not talking about vanilla-flavored 安全套 condoms. Condoms a few decades ago were plain. They were one-size-fits all, though they didn’t really fit all because guys definitely are not all the same size. I don’t even think condoms were lubricated back then.
Today, there are a plethora of condoms to choose from that not only serve the purpose of preventing pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases (not that most of us older ladies have worry about the latter any more), but that actually enhance 安全套 the sexual experience! What a concept, eh? Prophylactics are now made with both men and women in mind. Another novel concept…
Rubbers are now actually designed more for women. Case in point, textured, ribbed and studded condoms. These condoms provide the extra stimulation that many women need. It’s amazing how just a bit of texture may be all it takes…
Everyone jokes about whether “size” matters, but condom size can definitely matter. Even though the size of a condom obviously pertains mainly to guys, it affects us too because an ill-fitting condom can lower its effectiveness. Condoms that are too large can slip off while condoms that are tight may break. So now there are condoms of different sizes too, including regular size condoms, snugger fit condoms for guys who weren’t so blessed, and for well-endowed men there are condoms which are affectionately known as Magnums, Kyng Size and XXL.
Latex is the material that has long been used, and is still the most popular, for condoms because it works quite well but condom manufacturers realized that some individuals are allergic to latex. That realization propelled manufacturers to utilize technological advances to start making condoms with different materials such as polyurethane and polyizoprene, both of which are durable, effective and perfect for those with latex allergies. If you really want to go au naturale without going totally au naturale, you can use natural skin or lamb skin condoms. These condoms are thin and made of animal intestines just like they were eons ago. The only thing you have to consider is if you are still of child-bearing years, these condoms don’t prevent pregnancy but they do help prevent the transmission of diseases.
