5 Vagina-Friendly Condom Brands Free of Suspicious Chemicals
Ever read the ingredient list on the back of your box of condoms? Doing so always prompts us to wonder two things—first, what the hell are these ingredients? Second, why the hell am I putting said ingredients in my vagina if I don't know what they are?

Rest assured that enduring the uncomfortable feeling isn't the sole option, thanks to a handful of brands formulating their condoms from natural, non-toxic ingredients. Here, we rounded up a few of the cleanest options for when you want to get dirty.

The natural rubber latex used to craft Glyde's condoms get an extra washing, so you don't have to deal with that unpleasant, balloon-like scent afterwards.
