According to historians, the first condom was depicted 12.000.000 years ago on the wall of the Grotte des Combarelles. For centuries, they have been made from the intestinal mucosa of animals. A serious breakthrough was made only in the ХХ century, when the condoms became not only reliable but also comfortable. Modern contraceptives don’t reduce tactile sensations.
Types and features of condoms
There are many types of contraceptives. Depending on the material, they are divided into polyurethane (very dense), latex (the most popular) and non-latex (innovative). Non-latex (polyisoprene) condoms are felt like ultra-thin but don’t have a specific smell. Non-latex contraceptives are suitable for people with allergies.
As for the form, classic smooth devices are the most popular. Contoured models are also in demand, as they are thin and tight-fitting and provide increased sensitivity. Stimulating textured devices can be ribbed, studded, and dotted. Extra strong have an increased density.
Other classification criteria are the availability, amount and type of lubricant. There are types without lubricants and silicon-based or double glide lubricants. Besides, lubricants can be flavored, spermicide, anesthetic, and glowing.
How to choose a proper device?
Condom is an effective way to prevent sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancy. That’s why the quality of this product is so important.
The main selection criterion is the size of the product. This indicator determines the comfort and safety of using the condom.
Ultra-thin items without lubricant are recommended for oral sex. If you want to last longer in bed, use anesthetic condoms. The best option for beginners is a “one-touch” condom.
The female condom is a new development that consists of nanogel. It should be applied to the vaginal area before sex. The gel forms a physical membrane inside the vagina that can prevent sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancy.
To date, the online store MAKEUP offers its customers a large assortment of contraceptive products from famous brands. They are soft, elastic, and suitable for all types of sex. In a sealed package, the condoms can last up to 3 years. However, they also have a drawback. Latex products are only compatible with water-based gel lubricants. In some cases, they can even cause an allergy.
