Vegan Condoms?

Via on Jul 29, 2010

Now, you can awkwardly pause before making love and dull your pleasure…all without hurting animals!

Aren’t all condoms vegan, you ask? No: none are, actually—at least none of the condom brands commonly available in, you know, well, anywhere.

Except for these, and the forthcoming Sir Richard’s, and these:

To buy, click here. Info:

Made without the milk protein found in some latexes, Glyde safer sex products are totally vegan and not tested on animals. (Glyde condoms are made of latex, and those with latex allergies should not use them.) All varieties are lightly lubricated with a silicone-based lube, condom safe, and free from spermicides. Flavored condoms contain food-grade fruit extracts.

Available in 12 or 24 packs of Ultra (regular, temporarily out of stock), Maxi (extra large), Special (slightly smaller), Strawberry, Blueberry, Vanilla, Wildberry, Black, and variety packs of a color & flavor mix (which all standard sized). If a certain type is not listed in the drop-down menu, that means it’s temporarily out of stock.

If you have a special request, such as a condom pack with half Strawberry and half Ultra, feel free to put that in the order notes form during checkout.

About this product:
* Rubber grown in Malaysia, packaged in Australia

About Glyde Health:
* 1/2 woman-owned company
* 100% vegan product line

    Jennifer W It is just bizarre to me how many things contain animal by-products. Fish guts and bulls' blood in the wine making process and now this. Well, at least there is an alternative.

    Amber M ‎@Jennifer, not all wines contain animal products, but fish byproduct and egg whites are often present with no indication of such. :( boo to traditional companies who don't inform but hurray to organic, vegan wines (& companies who DO inform). :)

    Thanks, Amber. Yes, I did just learn about the wine situation recently and was horrified. I almost never drink at all but when I do I'll have a glass of wine and I'm glad to know there are vegan wines out there. I do prefer to be able to make informed decisions so I second your "hurray". :D

    Amber M Surprised you didn't mention these: Condomi Condoms – an assortment of vegan latex condoms from Germany.

    Also insightful that Nonoxynol-9 spermicide carries similar risks to parabens (from same column that mentions Condomi–9-28-09).

    Roger Williams Since the condom is an early stage abortion I have no problem with it being non vegan.
