Natural condoms mean those that are made of naturally occurring substances such as lambskin. Artificial condoms are those that are made of chemically procured substances such as latex or polyurethane. Most of the people around the world use artificial condoms as they provide more protection than natural condoms. Under some special circumstances such as latex allergy, some people demand for natural condoms, among which the lambskin condoms are most used.
Natural or lambskin condoms are a kind of male condom. They have a sheath that is made from an intestinal membrane of the lamb. They can cover the penis during sexual intercourse and provide effective contraception. This is the oldest known method of contraception, the oldest form of condoms. Some historical records show that such condoms were used as early as the initial years of the Roman Empire.
The use and utility of lambskin condoms is under question by some who say that since other ways of protection from latex allergy have been developed, it would make sense to phase out the lambskin condoms. These condoms may still be left with the use of allowing more pleasurable sex between spouses or committed relationships.
