Fusion Breaks Down the Vegan Condom Options
With most latex condoms being made with casein, a byproduct of dairy milk, it’s been difficult to be a vegan who wants to enjoy some cruelty-free sex (you know what we mean).
However, it turns out there is a slew of vegan condoms out there, and Fusion has done all the, uh, grunt work for us by rounding up the available varieties. Here’s what we learned.
Sir Richard’s is an all-natural and cruelty-free condom manufacturer that was founded in 2009. It also has one heck of a one-for-one social responsibility strategy: For every condom purchased, the company donates a condom to an organization nominated by its customers. No wonder its slogan is: “Doing Good Never Felt Better.”
Glyde Condoms does not use casein or any animal proteins. Instead, the company uses a proprietary plant extract, making them totally vegan-friendly. They also have a pretty great slogan: “Sexy, Silky, and Sustainable.”
Sustain Condoms is also 100% vegan-friendly, but their primary goal — other than to provide you with safe sex — is the empowerment of women. Not only is the company dedicated to gender equality, but 10% of its profits go to nonprofits that promote reproductive health-care access. And with all of its positive points, you won’t find it that weird that it was founded by a father-daughter team.
Naked is another vegan-friendly condom maker, which boasts the prettiest packaging (if you’re into that sort of thing). The company also spent years perfecting its condom foil to ensure that you never have to look clumsy opening a condom again.
ONE Condoms is another brand that has slick packaging, but theirs is more fun than “luxe” but then again, everyone has a “type.”
L. Condoms is working hard not only to keep you safe and satisfied, but was also founded with the mission of curbing the global AIDS epidemic and alleviating global poverty, and additionally adheres to committing to gender equality and creating opportunities for women.
