Women of the world rejoice! The only product made for women to protect themselves against sexually transmitted infections has been revamped! The female condom is now made of new material and is ready to transform the way you think about protection.
What is it?
If you are thinking, “What’s a female condom?” you’re not alone. The female condom 2 (FC2) is a new product developed to empower women’s sexuality. It is composed of a pouch containing two rings, one that goes inside and rests on the pubic bone and one that hangs outside of the vaginal opening. The female condom 2 is the same size as a male condom. It is made of nitrile, which is a non-latex product, so it can be worn by those who are latex sensitive. The nitrile polymer heats to body temperature, so users report it feels more natural than a male condom and is not constricting or tight.
What are the benefits?
Now you might be thinking, “Why should I bother?” or “I let my partner worry about the protection”. The female condom 2 is the only product for women to use to protect themselves against sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancy. It gives women a sense of empowerment because they can directly take the initiative to protect themselves, without having to rely on a partner to provide the protection. It can be used with any kind of lubricant, so no more worries of a broken condom due to oil based lubricants. The female condom can be inserted prior to sex, therefore it does not have to interrupt sexual spontaneity.
Still not convinced yet?
The FC2 has other benefits for sexual intercourse. The actual insertion of the condom can be incorporated into foreplay. Partners can take turns inserting it, which can stimulate positive communication and a new sense of closeness for the partners. The inner ring of the female condom can provide sexual stimulation for the tip of the penis. Also, the outer ring of the FC2 stimulates the clitoris for added pleasure during intercourse.
The FC2 can be found everywhere. For more information, check out: http://www.fc2.us.com/
Remember, safe is sexy!
