The new, sexy FDA-approved way of protecting against STIs

By Nicole Mitchell

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved latex undies brand Lorals’ Lorals for Protection underwear as STI protection devices. Lorals for Protection protects its users from STIs during oral sex while being worn similarly to underwear.

The team of designers at Loral spent three years creating the latex undies for safe (and pleasurable) sex, and spent the last two years adapting the product to make sure that it met FDA and ISO standards, according to its website.

Lorals’ brand mission is to empower people “to experience intimacy freely and fully.” By creating this product, it’s given people across the world the opportunity to feel sexy and care-free in bed while staying protected. Did we mention that its also vegan and chemical-free?

“I’m passionate about helping people become healthier and happier through love and intimacy,” Lorals Founder and CEO Melanie Cristol said, “I created Lorals because I want everyone to be able to experience great sex, with full confidence, on our own terms, and in whatever way feels best for our bodies.”

Lorals for Protection are available on the brand’s website and can be used in a variety of play. The panties come in two styles—bikini and shortie. A pack of four is $25 and fits US sizes 0-20 (with additional sizes coming soon). Visit the Lorals website to check out Lorals for Protection and other Lorals products. And don’t forget to have fun! 😉
