Condoms - you either love them, hate them, or see them for what they are: a necessary component of practicing safe sex. Wherever you fall on the spectrum, there is no denying that the protection and peace of mind a condom offers is worth the hassle and expense of buying and using them. But sometimes the frustrations that come with using a condom can be discouraging. Seriously, who wants to spend 20 minutes convincing a guy that yes, they have to wear a condom.
What if there was another option? One that put you more in control of when and how you practiced safe sex. One that can be just as effective, but made from a material that is thinner and stronger than latex. Well surprise, surprise there is: the female condom, FC2. Female condoms aren’t talked about much (yet), but they offer a method of safe sex that eliminates some of the hassle of male condoms and makes it much easier for women to take control of their own sexual health. And really, we should all be in control of our own sexual health. Here’s the lowdown on why you definitely want to try using a female condom.
