We are proud to stock the new range of Hero Condoms. Since 2013 Hero Condoms have brought to the Australian market a classic condom that with a very important message. The difference between many other manufacturers and Hero Condoms is the 1 FOR 1! For every condom purchased, Hero gives one to a developing country to reduce the effect of HIV.

It is a shocking statistic that of every minute, of every day a woman is infected with HIV. The epidemic threatens an entire continent, impacting over 22 million in Sub- Saharan Africa alone. With this in mind and the risk of spreading HIV/AIDS Hero have MADE sex better with the 1 for 1 promise and this promise is saving lives everyday.

It is fantastic that a company like Hero have created awareness to Australian's and developed a brand that is giving back to developing countries that do not have access to this essential item. Hero Condoms are made from low odour latex and are 100% electronically tested. Hero's sustainable manufacturing processes are doing their bit for the environment! So Have Sex, Save a Life, Save the World!

Condoms: Latex Vs Non-Latex

Sunday, 2 December 2012 12:34:58 PM Australia/Sydney

Condoms have definitely advanced over the past 400 years. As shown in one of our previous posts, Condom History, condoms have come long way from lamb or sheep intestines & linen to what we currently use today, latex.

 

Popular condoms today are waterproof, elastic and come in either latex or 2 types of non-latex, Polyisoprene and Polyurethane. All of these are made to protect from pregnancy and sexual transmitted diseases however effectiveness studies are constantly being conducted to determine the number one option. Most people choose non-latex condoms due to latex allergies however some believe they perform better than the latex alternative.

 

Polyurethane non-latex condoms have several advantages over latex varients. They allow for better heat transfer during intercourse, they are thinner, they have little smell an they are safe to use with oil based products. One downside however is that they don't stretch like latex or polyisoprene condoms so breakages can occur.



Polyisoprene non-latex condoms are made from a synthetic version of a material derived from the sap of the hevea tree. Although not as thin as polyurethane condoms, they are strechy like latex condoms and have lesser breakage rates. 

 

One last latex alternative are lambskin or natural skin condoms. These have a unique feel because they are made from flesh and not from a synthetic material. Unfortunately because of this they do not protect against STD's as pores in the skin allow for small particles to pass through. They will however still provide protection against pregnancy.

Use Condoms!

Here's a little video we stumbled upon that was made for RFSU (the Swedish Association for Sexuality Education). We thought it was a clever way to promote the use of condoms, something we feel very strongly about here at Pleasure Den! Check out the video below
