Hi Tampa

Last year we managed to scrounge some "Freebies" for our members to try,  most of the members liked them, some likened them to using wind socks.. ;D..but over all our wee survey showed the ladies liked because:

The ladies were incontrol and they were comfortable for both wife adn the husband/partner

They offered greater protection because they coivered both internal and extenal genitals.

They were very convenient , because they can be inserted up to 8 hours before sex..(even if you don't get lucky the only thing you have lost is a condom.. ;))

They are made of polyurethane, which I believe is much stronger than latex.

The only down fall is they are very expensive.

BTW..you are using one of my favourite posters as your Avatar....just thought I'd mention that.

Hugs
Jan :-*
