Condoms get a bad rap. We understand and sometimes even agree, but it's certainly not deserved in all cases. (We'll get to that.) With every new relationship comes the uncomfortable but critical "talk" about health status. This means disclosing if and when you've been tested for HIV and STI's, deciding if you need to schedule a test, and discussing the preventative measures you will take (condoms and/or dams) to stay safe. Even in monogamous, long-term relationships, today's women are weighing their contraceptive options more carefully. 15 Tips To Spice Up Your Sex Life (From Men)

Enough already. iCondom: Safe Sex At The Click Of An iPhone

1. FC2 | Female Condom. The FC2 Female Condom offers an advantage for women who want to ensure protection from pregnancy or STDs. The female condom is a strong, thin and flexible nitrile sheath inserted into (just going to get medical here) the vagina prior to sex.

It is pre-lubricated with a slick silicone-based lubricant, but additional lubricant can be used as well. Be Sexy and Smart - Show Your Love with Protection
The female condom can be used no matter how your man is endowed. Typically, condoms are sold according to penis size (slim or snugger fit (S), standard or "average" (M), larger or XL (L). Need help determining condom size? We have it! The female condom offers a fantastic advantage for couples where a partner has a latex sensitivity. This is the only non-latex condom option for guys requiring a small condom (we like to call this a more "tailored fit").

The extra roomy shape at the top allows for better freedom of movement, translating to a more natural experience. TROJAN’s UltraSmooth premium lubricant is inside and outside for increased mutual pleasure. The condoms have a tapered base for a more secure fit and are strategically ribbed for her ecstatic pleasure. Because of the fitted shaft and extra roomy top, this condom works well for average (M) and larger (L) sizes. Don't Settle For Pleasure-less Sex
