Canadian sex shop Come As You Are has a rating system for the porn they offer which indicates 5 different levels of explicitness. They also use icons to indicate the inclusion of things like group sex, BDSM, anal play, and more. Allows fans of a certain type of play to seek out the porn that depicts it, or those who aren’t fans to avoid it in their porn.
Here’s a good troubleshooting guide if you’ve been struggling with sensitivities but can’t figure out if it’s your lube or your condoms.
I’ve found that The Pleasure Chest has reliable information on the type of lube that’s included with a condom, in addition to width, length, thickness, and material info (just check the “Specs” tab on the product page). The Condom Depot, however, does NOT have reliable information about lube type.
Good Vibes also has these handy condom comparison charts, which organize condoms by price point, material, and size; there’s even a chart comparing different vegan condoms.
A still-unanswered question: why do lubes provide ingredient information, but condoms don’t provide ingredient information for their included lube?
