|Did you know there is such a thing as a female condom? Mister Private learns something new every day. A female condom is a soft, loose-fitting plastic pouch that lines the vagina. It has a soft ring at each end. The ring at the closed end is used to place the device inside the vagina. The ring holds the condom in place during sex. The other ring stays outside the vagina and partially covers the labia.|
Some of the advantages of female condoms include:
- Allows the woman control over pregnancy and STD protection
Can be used by people who are allergic to latex
- Can be used with oil-based and water-based lubricants
- Stays in place even if the man loses his erection
However, the female condom is less effective than the regular condom. It is also pricier, with one female condom costing about $3.50.
