A Great Option for Both Partners
The FC2 "Female" (we prefer: Internal) Condom offers many advantages for couples who want to ensure protection from pregnancy and/or sexually transmitted infection. The internal condom is a strong, thin and flexible nitrile sheath inserted into the vagina (up to 2 hours) prior to sex. It has a flexible inner ring for easy insertion and is absolutely latex-free. It is pre-lubricated with a slick silicone-based lubricant, but additional lubricant can be used as well.
PERFORMANCE TIP: On a sensual note, nitrile is a heat sensitive material (it warms up and adheres to the vaginal walls during sex) leading to a more natural, pleasurable feeling for both partners.
PRODUCT BENEFITS: the FC2 is the only NON-LATEX option that is available for couples, regardless of penis size. In fact, as there is no other LATEX FREE option for couples requiring SMALLER or much larger condoms, kudos to FC2 for providing a much needed solution. The FC2 is also a fantastic option for men who have difficulty maintaining an erection when using condoms. All in all it is a great condom to have in any woman's sexy arsenal.
I also like that the outer ring gives a little more protection from skin to skin contact.
It also gives nice sensation for him, more sensation compared to standard condoms.
The bad part is if he's larger than about 6 inches these female condoms aren't long enough. He'll need to be very careful or else the condom will be pushed inside the woman out of position and no longer be effective. I don't understand why they don't create these with plenty of extra length.
Is there an extra long option? Will there be in the future?
I didnt felt the inner ring, so it wasnt painful or disturbing. It's very thin and gives your partner extra room because he is not bagging his material. It's easy to insert, not a problem as it might look at the first sight. Looks funny because it covers part of your body outside, but this is not an interference. If your partner doesnt like condoms or if you would like to give him a rest this might be a good thing to try. Last point: latex free, no smell no allergies. Fits all sizes of guys. "Success!"
Maybe it's just because we didn't actually use it, but neither my boyfriend nor myself would recommend this condom.
