Hello! My partner and I like having sex, but I find its painful more often than not. I visited the gynecologist and she suggested that I use non-lubricated condoms without spermicide, flavorings, etc. The problem is, the guy I'm with is built very well, and I can't seem to find a condom that is large enough without added lubricants. Does anyone know of a brand/type we can try? Thanks!!!
She recommended non-lubricated condoms because there is a chemical called nonoxynol-9 is known for causing irritation if you are sensitive to it. Additionally, if you are sensitive to it, I'm told you increase your chances of contracting HIV- I'm not entirely sure why that is. I bought astroglide, which is nonoynol-9 free, but it doesn't help if the condom already has it on it.
Trojan Enz Large non-lubricated (the green box you mentioned) has been discontinued. I was unable to locate a replacement product that is both large and non-lubricated, made by Trojan or any other company.
On the plus side (pun intended), all the Magnum line condoms are non-9 free.
