As a matter of fact, condoms can come with different materials. The most popular materials for making condoms may probably be latex and Polyurethane. Some people may find that latex is a better choice because the feeling with it is better. However, there are also people who are allergic to latex. In this case Polyurethane may probably be a better choice.
If you have never used a condom before, you should try to practice using it. Some people may use bananas to practice. Yes this is a very good choice. However, a better choice will probably be using a dildo, if you are a woman and would like to practice it. If you are a man, there is no point to practice it with bananas or dildos. You have a real thing right? You should try to practice yourself. You may need to spend some time and use up the a dozen of condoms before you really know who you can use it. Remember, you should make sure that you know how to use it before you have intercourse with your partner. Improper or incorrect use of condom will make the condom useless in preventing STDs and pregnancy.
Now let us talk about how your shop for the condoms. It is true that there are still people who are shy to ask for a condom in some shops. Yet you may try to buy it from a machine. In this case you will not need to talk to anyone when you are buying the condom. And I bet you will not be shy in front of the machine right? Remember, there is nothing wrong with buying and using a condom. At the end of the day there is no need to feel shy when you are buying the condom.
