  • If condoms irriate you...

    Hello ladies,
    I cannot take BC so I have to rely on condoms as contraception. Many times I find them to be so irritating, even though I'm not allergic to latex.

    Well, I found a great solution! LifeStyles brand has come out with a condom called "Skyn" which is supposed to feel like there is nothing between you and your partner. My boyfriend and I recently tried these, and WOW! Not only did I not have any discomfort, it really did feel like he was wearing nothing.

    The downside is the cost. I think it was $14.99 for a 12-pack. To me it's worth it if I don't have to be in pain. I just thought I would share since I feel like I hit a goldmine! LOL. If anyone else decides to try these, let me know your experiences.

    I hadn't thought about what they were made of. That would probably help!

    From their website:

    New SKYN™ Condoms deliver ultimate sensitivity in a breakthrough polyisoprene non-latex material.

    * First clinically tested and approved polyisoprene condom in the U.S. market today.
    * Soft and flexible for a more pleasurable and ergonomic fit.
    * Natural color and odor free.
    * Convenient 3 and 12 count pack.
