Male condoms made from a type of plastic. They are an excellent choice for people with latex allergies, as they provide similar protection from sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Polyurethane condoms are also an effective form of contraception, although scientific studies have shown contrasting results when directly comparing polyurethane to latex.

Polyurethane is generally thought to be the stronger of the two options, and the relative strength of the material allows for a thinner condom design. This allows for a more pleasurable experience for many users. However, polyurethane condoms are generally more expensive than latex condoms.

You can safely use oil, water, or silicone-based lubricants with polyurethane condoms.
