Consumer Alert!

If you're buying condoms, don't get the Trojan Fire & Ice ones.

"...uncovered a FDA report from 2012, in which the FDA was chastising Trojan for misinforming and misleading customers regarding the ingredients in this lube. Despite this stern warning from the government, Trojan doesn’t list ingredients on their Fire & Ice box to this day, citing other condom companies, like Billy Boy condoms, aren’t required to do so.

Although Trojan won’t state their ingredients, consumers have speculated: benzocaine, menthol, capsaicin, glycerol and nonoxynol-9 spermicide to be present in the lubricant of the Fire & Ice condoms. Benzocaine is a numbing agent found in many climax control lubricants, menthol is responsible for the “icey” feeling, capsaicin is a derivative of chili peppers which causes a “firey” feeling, glycerol is a sugar based substance known to cause yeast infections and nonoxynol-9 is a harmful spermicide which can cause vaginal lesions."

Okay. I can understand Benzocaine, glycerol (or by it's more common name, Glycerine. It's used in hand creams so it's safe), menthol in the condoms but CAPSAICIN? REALLY?! THE ACTIVE COMPONENT IN CHILI PEPPERS????

Although genital sensitivity can be a big factor in the burning sensation but I would really not recommend it unless you know your own limits.
