What size are your condoms?
Length: Our condoms are 7.4" / 190 mm long (unstretched), but have the capacity to stretch to over 15" long. They fit medium and large penises quite comfortably. For shorter penises, the condoms can still fit effectively; just don't unroll the condom all the way. The unrolled portion of the condom will sit like a ring on the base of the penis.
Width: Our condoms are 2.2" / 56 mm wide. If a condom is loose around the base of the penis, it is too large and can slip off during intercourse. Make sure the condom fits snugly before use.
How does your sizing compare to other condoms?
Our condoms are similar in size to a 'size large' Trojan condom. They are a few millimeters shy of a Trojan Magnum condom in both length and width. They fit a large variety of penises comfortably because the latex is so thin and stretchy.
Where are Lovability Condoms sourced?
An awesome farm-to-factory rubber plant/plantation in Malaysia. We’re proud to say our condoms are produced from super fresh latex tapped from local trees. Once the trees are tapped, our condoms are made right away. No wait means no icky latex smell! Fresh is good.
What ingredients are in Lovability Condoms?
* All natural rubber latex tapped fresh (80.17%)
* Silicone oil, a hypo-allergenic, long-lasting lubricant of the highest grade (18.12%)
* Corn starch & magnesium carbonate powder (1.71%), a natural material taken from corn kernels and inorganic material. Corn starch helps keep the latex from sticking to itself and make it easier to unroll, and the magnesium carbonate improves the tensile strength of the natural-latex rubber.
What ingredients are NOT in Lovability Condoms?
As importantly as what’s in our premium Lovability Condoms is what’s NOT.
NO dyes! NO fragrances! NO parabens! NO detectable nitrosamines! NO casein! NO spermicide (nonoxynol-9)! NO gluten! NO PEGs (polyethylene glycol)! NO numbing agent (benzocaine)! And, yes, it's NON-GMO as well :)
What ingredients are used in the manufacturing process of Lovability Condoms?
Our condoms are made by mixing various chemicals with 100% natural rubber latex. The chemicals include Latex, Ammonia, Sulphur, Zinc Oxide, Zinc dibutyldithiocarbamate, Phenolic Antioxidant, Silicone lubricant, Magnesium carbonate powders and modified cornstarch.
The chemicals initiate a process called vulcanization, an essential step to develop the condom's required mechanical properties. Most of the chemicals listed above will be eliminated during the manufacturing process. A few will be left in the condom at very low levels, though none pose any health risk or concern.
Are Lovability Condoms vegan?
YES! Lovability vegan condoms are free of all animal byproducts. Many latex condoms are manufactured using a milk protein called casein to give the latex a smooth texture. Some also contain milk powder. The use of either makes a condom not vegan.
Are Lovability Condoms tested on animals?
No (we love our furry animals!), but - as with most things, and in full transparency - the answer is nuanced.
All condoms and personal lubricants sold in the US are regulated as Class II medical devices by the FDA, and as a result, must adhere to specific legal standards. Prior to 2016, these legal standards required all manufacturers and brands who sell these products in the US to evaluate the safety of their products by performing some animal tests as part of the FDA’s 510(k) clearance application. However, once a new Class II medical device receives FDA clearance, no further testing is required. As such, our condom manufacturer has not conducted any animal tests on our products regulated as Class II medical devices since receiving 510(k) clearance in 2001.
Thankfully, the FDA now supports cruelty-free methods of evaluating the safety of these products in certain circumstances. And if we launch a new product, we will require our manufacturing partners to demonstrate the safety of such a product without the use of animal testing whenever possible.
What's the shelf-life of Lovability Condoms?
Lovability Condoms are good for 5 years from the date they are manufactured. You can find the expiration date conveniently identified on the back label of each condom as well as the secondary packaging in which the condoms are sold.
Do you sell non-latex condoms?
No :( We have not yet produced a polyurethane or polyisporene option. Latex alternatives have higher breakage rates and shorter shelf life. And when it comes to protection, lambskin or sheepskin condoms are inferior to latex condoms as they don't prevent the transmission of STIs. We'll keep looking for latex alternatives that are healthy and body safe.
Do you sell dental (oral) dams?
No :( but we're working on it. We recognize the importance of dams as a means of protecting you against the transmission of STIs during oral sex and expressing to your partner that you care about safe sex.
Until we do create a dam, here's a DIY demo on how to convert your Lovability Condom in to a dam :)
