Hope this is the right place to this, and I'm really sorry if not. I have a bit of a problem, I recently found out I have a latex allergy, which has put a bit of a pause on my relationships progress, as I cannot find anywhere that lists vegan friendly latex free condoms. Can anybody name at least one that is available in england for me? I asked my gp and she just pointed me in the direction of those awful lamb ones, completely missing the point and not even remembering they don't protect against stis. If anyone could help i'd be so grateful.

From Durex consumer products:

Only our non-latex condom Avanti, which is made from polyurethane,
does not contain casein, making it suitable for use by everyone, including
vegans.

Thankyou so much! Three hours of googling and I didn't find that, can't have been doing it right.

Just wish durex had replied to my message a month ago

Remember that if you have a steady partner, safe sex is not only a man's responsibility. There are other methods out there.

Yessss, definitely Avanti is latex/animal free. I actually had an allergic reaction to regular ones but this works wonders! It costs just as much as other condoms. IMHO.

Even though one might have a regular partner, not everyone is doing it completely vanilla so condoms are a must at all times just to keep things as safe as poss.

What does doing it vanilla have to do with safety? If your partner is regular then just shower before doing it not so vanilla and you are good to go. Are you always this judgmental?

I wasn't using the term vanilla in an insulting or judgmental way, I was just using it. I'm just saying that if you have more conventional methods of sex, or you aren'tin a high risk group for safe-sex you can go without condoms, but some people aren't. I just threw it out there cos you can;t assume what everyone's doing in the bedroom, I meant no offense to you with it.

I don't think Nishani was being judgmental. Males can get urinary tract infections if they're "pitching," (if you catch my drift) so in that case a condom is a good idea even if you are monogamous.

You seem like you're really against condoms for some reason.

I appreciate this thread because I am allergic to latex, and I love having condom free sex, but right now I'm breast feeding and I still want to have sex and not get pregnant so I need to use condoms. You cannot take most birth control while breast feeding, except condoms and low dose estrogen pills (which is what I was using when I became pregnant) so this is quite useful.
