Condoms are proven to be effective in preventing the spread of STDs and unwanted pregnancies, when they are used correctly. But, sometimes condoms can break. Why does this happen?
Condoms are meant to be stored in a cool, dry and dark place. This is because the latex or non-latex materials used to manufacture condoms do not hold up well against extreme temperatures. The ideal environment for condom storage is in a lowly lit place which remains between 32 degrees and 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
Q: Is It True That Some Lubes Can Damage Condoms?
A: Yes there are personal lubricants that can damage condoms. Oil based lubricants, for examples, are not recommended for use with latex condoms. Using oil based lubricants such as Vaseline or baby oil can damage condoms very quickly. All of the lubricants sold at Condom Fast are approved for use with condoms to make your buying experience even easier.
The best practice is to make sure and read the safety information on the back of condom’s. Manufactures will advise on the type of lubricant that is safe to use with the condom, while other manufacturers may suggest not adding extra lubrication to their products, as they may damage the condom.
If you are sexually active, it is good to have condoms on hand when you need them. Some people may keep condoms in their wallet or even in their shoe. Although you are making the smart choice in wanting to practice safe sex, you need to be aware of the best and worst places to keep your condoms.
