Female condoms are sheaths, or linings, that fit inside a woman’s vagina. They have flexible rings on both ends. One ring has an open end and sits outside the vagina. The other ring is placed inside the vagina. Rings help stabilize the female condom during intercourse and prevent slippage. The outer ring is open for the penis to be inserted into while the inner ring is closed off (the inner ring also creates additional pleasure for the female). The female condom is made of thin, transparent, soft, lubricated plastic film. It has a soft, moist texture that provides some users with a more “natural” feel than male latex condoms.
