safer sex for all

Jems is a condom taking on a toxic industry. Jems was built on the desire to create something for everyone, normalize sex and condom use.

Jems condoms are ultra-thin, keeping you closer to your partner, without compromising what condoms are made for: your safety and protection. Vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free, Jems is a condom made with intention.

We use only what's essential

  • Natural Latex

  • 100% Silicone Lube

  • Nothing More

Jems is a platform for (S)EXPANSIVE education

When Jems talks about sex, we’re talking everything that relates to it – from how to actually make decisions, like who is worthy of your body, to mood, money, love, power, and the mystery of chemistry. Recognizing that knowledge is collective and that no amount of study can replace experience, Jems connects you with the voices you want to hear and with the tools to do you.

The Jems constellation represents our commitment to connection. Whether we are connecting ideas or people – with our bodies or with the stars – Jems is here to help you navigate the relationships in your life.

  • We’ve partnered with SIECUS to support their mission of advancing sex ed for social change through a $5K donation and the launch of our Use a Condom campaign. For every share of the campaign video, we’ll donate an additional box of Jems to SIECUS to help get protection in the hands of those who need it.

  • SIECUS: Sex Ed for Social Change has served as the national voice for sex education since 1964, asserting that sexuality is a fundamental part of being human. Through advocacy, policy and coalition building, SIECUS advances sex education as a vehicle for social change, so all people can receive sex education, are affirmed in their identities, and have power to make decisions about their own health, pleasure and wholeness.

why jems?

Jems was built on the desire to create something for everyone, normalize sex and condom use, and disrupt a toxic industry. In April 2021, longtime friends Whitney and Yasemin co-founded Jems after they went out looking for a product they assumed existed but didn't.

While looking for contraception options between pregnancies, Yasemin and Whitney noticed a void in the condom aisle—traditional condom packaging reflects an outdated notion of sexuality; from unappealing aesthetics to messaging that speaks primarily to specific gender and sexual stereotypes, condoms lack thoughtfulness to such a varied audience.

As conscious consumers, they also noticed the lack of clean, transparent ingredients. With a passion for design that supports a diversity of voices, they created Jems—a truly simple, non-toxic condom for all. The hope is that by redesigning the packaging and rethinking how we speak about condoms and their uses, we can bring about meaningful change.
