Welcome back to my condom feature series!! Sorry I took last week off, but I was pretty swamped with work. ANYWAYS, back to safer sex. (Keep reading for a chance to win a box of 12 Sir Richard’s Pleasure Dots for yourself)!

This week, the featured condoms are: SIR RICHARD’S PLEASURE DOTS.

For those of you who don’t know about Sir Richard’s, its a great company that donates one condom to a developing country for every condom they sell. These condoms are also vegan, which is something I know a lot of people dig. 

They come in this cute trendy little pink pattern that looks like this, and the condom itself also looks pretty cool:

Stats (via

  • Material: 100% Natural Latex
  • Width: 56mm
  • Texture: Studded/Dots
  • Lube: Silicone
  • Glycerin, paraben, and spermicide free

What rocks about this condom? Everything. This baby is covered in a layer of hundreds of “Pleasure Dots” which are little polka dot bumps all around it to make your genitals feel extra happy. 

These condoms combine doing good, with feeling good. Can you really get much better than that? Again, these are vegan since they are free of casin, a dairy protein that normally coats condoms. 

As always, this condom protects against most forms of STIs, and should be worn each time you have sex to protect against pregnancy and STI transmission! Make sure to use lubrication to ensure less friction and less of a chance of breaking. If you aren’t sure if this condom is right for you, you and/or your partner can try masturbating with it first to see how it feels.

To buy them for yourself, go to Sir Richard’s site here. To get free shipping and $5 off your order, use the code: ALLY@CLARK

Want to try them for yourself? One follower will be win a box of 12- Sir Richard’s Pleasure Dots condoms. To win, reblog this post! I will choose the winner next week, but you must be following  to win!
