Are lambskin condoms even still a thing? I remember hearing they were terrible when I was a kid..... Many, many, many years ago

Edit: many

They feel way better than regular condoms. They feel like almost nothing. They’re good for monogamous couples who are only concerned with pregnancy, not STDs. They’re super expensive though.

I’d argue they felt disgusting and smelled horrible - maybe I had a bad brand! Lol

They definitely have a smell, I don’t think it’s bad though, just weird. I would assume they could smell bad if they were stored improperly or old. I think they feel better probably because they transfer heat better and they feel more natural because they are made out of actual organic material.

I heard of them before, and I always assumed they were used by people allergic to latex.

My wife is allergic to latex. Back when we were dating I used Polyurethane condoms instead.

Terrible? No. Except they don't protect against STDs. Lol.

That's.... Pretty terrible if you ask me.

But I do also recall hearing that they were subpar as birth control as well. But that's 100% anecdotal.

My point being why would people bother buying them when there are superior and easy to get latex condoms? Is there some other benefit that I'm not aware of?


bigbbypddingsnatchr OP t1_iu2su5n wrote

Bc many people are allergic to latex ....

And lambskin condoms are thinner and transmit heat better.

They feel better.

My wife doesn't do well with any female contraceptives, and so instead of making her suffer, I wear condoms. I have no fear of STI's, so that detractor is out. If both stop pregnancy, I'm going to go with the one that feels better.

Or in my case, the one I can afford, so I still use latex. But, if I could afford it, I'd switch.

Latex allergy. Wanting to actually feel sex. Those who don’t want kids right now who are in fluid bonded relationships.
