Our condoms are cleared by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) as Class II medical devices. This means that a quality control team monitors every step of the manufacturing process, and only the condoms that successfully pass the stringent set of tests put forth by the FDA are sealed and packaged for our customers. As a result, when used correctly, condoms are an effective form of contraception, and can help reduce the transmission risk of sexually transmitted diseases.
Yes, our condoms are vegan, and made with 100% natural latex. However, that doesn’t mean you should snort them.
Yes. Many latex condoms are made using the milk protein casein, while other condoms are made from lamb intestines. Casein is the reason why most other latex condoms smell bad. Casein may also intensify the reaction if you're allergic to latex.
Yes. They are also free of glycerin, parabens, spermicide and other harmful chemicals.
We call P.S. condoms exceptionally thin for a reason - they have a thickness of 0.045 mm. That’s 15% thinner than the leading "ultra thin" condom brand.
Condoms reduce the risk of transmitting sexually transmitted infections (STIs), by providing a physical barrier between the sources of infection. However, condoms do not completely eliminate the risks of pregnancy or STIs. Latex condoms are most effective against STIs such as HIV infection (AIDS) and gonorrhea. Condoms are less effective against STIs such as HPV and herpes, which may also spread by contact with infected skin not covered by the condom. For additional information on condoms, STIs, and pregnancy protection, or if you believe you have an STI, contact a health care provider or public health agency.
Use a new condom for every act of vaginal, anal and/or oral sex throughout the entire sex act (from start to finish). Carefully tear open the P.S. foil wrapper. The condom is inserted into the wrapper right way up, so use your fingers to pull it out of the wrapper ensuring that the tip of the condom faces away from the tip of the penis before you put it on. Squeeze the reservoir tip of the condom so that there is no air trapped inside. This is important, because if there is air trapped inside, you can risk the condom splitting during intercourse. Additionally, it's important to ensure that you put the condom on when the penis is fully erect, as you want to make sure it fits correctly. You may use a water or silicone-based lubricant on the outside of the condom as extra lubricant increases sensitivity and also helps to prevent condom breakage.
When finished, hold the condom at the base so that it doesn't slip off. Then, when fully withdrawn, roll the condom from the base towards the tip and remove it. Dispose of it carefully in the trash. Never flush condoms down the toilet (gotta save the oceans).
After ejaculation and before the penis gets soft, grip the rim of the condom and carefully withdraw. Then gently pull the condom off the penis, making sure that semen doesn’t spill out.
Wrap the condom in a tissue and throw it in the trash where others won’t handle it. If you feel the condom break at any point during sexual activity, stop immediately, withdraw, remove the broken condom, and put on a new condom.
Ensure that adequate lubrication is used during vaginal and anal sex, which might require water-based lubricants. Oil-based lubricants (e.g., petroleum jelly, shortening, mineral oil, massage oils, body lotions, and cooking oil) should not be used because they can weaken latex, increasing the chances of breakage.
Both silicone and water-based lubricants work with P.S. condoms. Never use an oil-based lubricant with P.S. or any other latex condoms - this includes baby oil, coconut oil, and petroleum jelly.
No! A new condom should be used every time you have intercourse - if you need another one, open up a fresh P.S. foil wrapper.
P.S. condoms have a shelf life of five years from their production date, as long as they remain unopened and in the wrapper. You can find the expiration date on the back of the foil wrapper on every P.S. condom. Remember to check this expiration date prior to using the condom. Once the condom reaches its expiration date, please discard.
P.S. condoms should always be stored in a cool, dry place. Leaving them in very hot or humid conditions can damage the latex, which may render the condoms less effective.
Wrap the used condom in toilet paper or a tissue, and put it in the garbage. All of these items are biodegradable, so this is the most environmentally-friendly way to dispose of a condom. Never flush a condom down the toilet - it may clog your pipes, and latex does not biodegrade in water. Also, think of the turtles.
When used correctly, condoms are 98% effective at preventing pregnancy.
