In brief: Nothing special

Just make sure you are not allergic to latex; most condoms are made of non-latex material; be sure yours is.
Be aware of slippage of the condoms during intercourse; if slipped may consider "morning-after" pills if pregnancy not desired.

In brief: Generally none

Some men can be sensitive or even allergic to either latex or spermicides, but this is rather uncommon.
(would cause some redness & skin irritation the next day). You may wish to get a few different sizes, styles, textures, flavors etc. To experiment and see which you and your partner prefer. Have fun!
