Can blood or HIV pass through polyurethane?
May 28, 2004
I just read your article that neither blood nor HIV can pass through latex but what about polyurethane? I didn't even know that I was using a polyurethane condom at the time because the darn writing is so small that no one can even read it!
Response from Dr. Frascino
Nope, blood cannot pass through latex or polyurethane. Polyurethane condoms are particularly useful for folks who have latex allergy.
As Mr. Robinson said to the soon-to-be-seduced Ben in The Graduate, "Ben, I have one word for you . . . Plastics!" I agree. Whether it's latex or polyurethane, plastics are the way to go!! (Or cum, as the case may be.)
