What does vegan-friendly mean?
To make latex smooth, most condoms contain casein, which is derived from milk. Jonny, however, steers clear of all animal derivatives and nasty toxins. Ever heard of vegan sex? Well, you have now.
How is Jonny eco-conscious?
Eco-conscious means to be as environmentally conscious as possible - to live and act in ways that honour, love and preserve what our mama gave us. Jonny's walks with an eco-footprint in the below ways:
- Jonny is made from natural latex, originating from the rubber plant, which does breakdown over time, compared to the non-latex versions that don't break down.
- Jonny is packaged in recyclable boxes
- Jonny's mailer bags are recycled and recyclable
- Jonny offers eco-friendly disposal bags made from 100% ocean-bound plastic
- Jonny uses noissue wrapping paper for online orders. Unlike many wrapping papers, this eco-friendly tissue paper is 100% circular and can be composted or recycled after use. For every order we place with noissue, they plant trees in areas in need of reforestation.
** Jonny's foil wrapper is an element of our packaging that can't be avoided; by law, all condoms must be wrapped in foil, which is not biodegradable **
OK so this might sound weird, but what do Jonny condoms smell like?
Throughout the manufacturing process, Jonny is washed and then washed again. Double-washing helps to reduce the rubbery smells normally associated with condoms. Have a sniff – you’ll note Jonny smells great (not ‘oo, my Tinder date is wearing Comme des Garcons 2’ great, but great in its own ‘I didn’t expect this from a condom’ way – ya know?)
What size is Jonny? How thick are they?
Jonny fits most. Specs-wise, Jonny rocks a 53mm diameter and is ultra-thin at .65 microns for optimum feel without compromising strength and safety.
How does latex differ to non-latex?
Latex is made from rubber sourced from rubber plants. Jonny is a non-medicated natural rubber latex condom.
Non-latex is made from polyurethane, which is a plastic often found in paints and varnishes. For those with latex allergies, non-latex is the preferred alternative.
Are Jonny condoms lubricated? Do I need more lubricant?
Yes indeed, Jonny is lubricated (& palm oil free). For extra lubrication, use only water-based/non-oil based lubricants, like Bonk Lube (available in our store!). And remember, Jonny does not contain any spermicides or parabens.
Oil lubricants (including Coconut Oil) can break down latex condoms, which can ultimately cause them to break and lead to an increased risk of STDs and unplanned pregnancy. With this in mind, we do not recommend using oil lubes with condoms.
What is, and isn't, inside Jonny?
Jonny likes to stay as natural as possible. It is better for our bodies, and better for nature.
Therefore there are only a small number of special ingredients that help keep Jonny performing at its best while being safe for our bodies and complying with the strict International medical & manufacturing standards. These ingredients are natural rubber latex, corn starch for dusting, silicone oil for lubricating.
- Jonny does not contain casein, derived from milk and used for lubrication.
- Jonny does not contain palm oil, found in some lubricants.
- Jonny does not use nitrosamines in production.
- Jonny does not use benzocaine - a numbing agent found in lubricants.
- Jonny does not contain spermicides.
- Jonny is free from parabens, glycerin, petrochemicals, flavours and fragrances.
Is Jonny safe?
Safety and efficacy are the cornerstones of Jonny. Jonny condoms have been tested rigorously, and comply with all Australian and international standards and testing to ensure maximum safety. When used correctly, condoms offer highly reliable protection against pregnancy and STIs, but no contraceptive can offer 100% guaranteed protection against pregnancy, HIV and/or infectious diseases.
Jonny does not use or contain any spermicides or parabens.
What does ‘It takes 3 to Tango’ mean?
Once upon a time, it took two to tango. But these days when it comes to mutually respectful sex, condoms are essential. So when you kick off those pants and things are heading in an exciting, consensual direction, be sure to invite Jonny to the big dance.
What are our eco-disposal bags and how are they eco-friendly?
Jonny's disposable bags are the discreet, eco alternative to flushing.
Most condoms – and tampons while we’re at it! – are flushed down the toilet, which is having a devastating effect on marine life and waterways. Jonny encourages environmentally conscious living – from recycling your plastics to using a reusable coffee cup, to environmentally safe sex. By pairing each Jonny condom with an eco disposal bag, Jonny aims to change behaviour and perceptions around how personal items are disposed of.
The disposable bag is made from 100% ocean-bound plastic.
