Condoms that are safe to use with silicone toys (or vaginas with silicone intolerances!)

Okay, so I'm not convinced silicone lube will automatically destroy my high-quality silicone toys, but I don't really have the funds to find out, lol. I also know that some women just can't tolerate silicone lubes (or can ONLY tolerate silicone lubes), so I figured this might be useful here. I've spent the past few hours compiling information and thought I'd share what I have (and hopefully get input from others as well). Hope this helps! I sure wish someone would have had this already listed. :P I make no guarantees as to the accuracy of this since I don't actually make condoms, use the list at your own risk, etc.

Condoms that are safe for silicone toys (Uses water-based lube that may contain glycerin or parabens):
-Beyond Seven
-Crown
-Paradise flavoured (no clue about unflavoured)
-Trojan ENZ (possibly most Trojans)
-Probably anything unlubricated

Condoms that are generally NOT safe for silicone toys (uses silicone-based lube which may melt toys):
-Caution Wear
-Contempo(?)
-Durex
-One
-Premium
-Vivid

Any more to add to the list? A scary number of condom makers don't even tell you what kind of lube is on the condom, let alone, provide an ingredients list!

If you're going to sort lubes by potential reactions, you might want to make separate lists for water-based with/without glycerin and parabens.
Water-based:
without glycerin or parabens:
Wet Naturals
Sliquid

with glycerin and parabens:
JO H2O

this is going to be a long list!

Sliquid is a delightful lube, but this post is only about pre-lubricated condoms... I figure it's not usually too impossible to find out whether a lube is water-based or silicone-based on the label, but condoms are another story! If we don't have a post (or wiki page) for standalone lubes, Someone should definitely make one! :)

But seriously, it's hard to go wrong with some variety of Sliquid. ;)

Wow, I read the post twice trying to figure out why exactly you were listing lubes, and managed to misread both times. It's been a long day, obviously. But now your post makes more sense!

hehe, no problem. I've had many days like that recently!

I was confused too.
Systemaurora, maybe an edit to the post to make a note that it's about lubricated condoms?

Sure. I thought the title was pretty self-explanatory, but if people are getting confused I will edit.

On my iPod, titles are very tiny. And also, you start talking about lubes immediately after the title; the context of the condom is easily lost. The changes help a lot for clarity!

ah, gotcha. I'm not blessed with an ipod so I don't know anything about the display. That makes sense. :)
