Lambskin condoms - review, drawbacks and benefits
Lambskin condoms are an alternative to latex and non-latex condoms. Whilst technically a non-latex condom, lambskin are usually considered to be outside of these categories.
This a review of lambskin condoms. We will look at condom size such as length, girth and thickness. Keep in mind that a best condom for someone else may not be the best condom for you. Choosing the right condom should be easier with knowledge of their differences.
Whilst considered to be closer to the natural feeling of condomless sex, these condoms offer no protection against transmission of many STI (Sexually transmitted infections) 's, such as herpes and HIV. They do offer protection against unwanted pregnancy, however.
Lambskin condoms are made from sheep intestine. Whilst it may appear unappealing we should remember that lamb is consumed as food worldwide and intestine is a waste by-product, often considered a waste. Therefore using lamb intestine to create condoms is in fact an environmentally-friendly contraceptive solution.
