Latex: The most common type of condom. DO NOT MIX WITH OIL LUBE, keep to water-or silicon based lube. Allergic to latex? Or if a guy says, "I can't use a condom because I'm allergic." FEAR NOT! Non Latex: Condoms are also made from polyurethane sheaths, so no excuse. Lambskin: Not recommended as they don't protect against STDs, this isn't medieval times, so we don't need to use animal membranes. Spermicide: These condoms are actually made to kill sperm using a chemical lube. Be careful of allergic reactions. Dotted: Condoms that have a dotted texture to give a different sensation. Ribbed: Condoms with textured rings going around the girth. Tantric Style: Condoms with tattoos on them? Not so sure how we feel about that. Ultra Thin: These are for tops who say they lose sensation when using a condom... Easy fix. Pleasure Plus: The condoms for tops! It has a little extra pocket, if you were to see used one laying around you would think, "DAMN he has a deformed penis." It is internally ribbed, and has an extra pouch for more friction. Flavored: For those of you who use protection while giving head. Magnums: For those of you who are well endowed. (Call us. JUST KIDDING!!) Glow in the Dark: If he has problems finding his way around in the dark, Twisted: Literally, being screwed. The corkscrew ribbing literally feels like a drill bit.
A Louis Vuitton inspired condom. Yes, it's a "knock off" or a "fake Louis", but it is a real condom the idea was cute.
Why are there so many condoms? You go to the store, and you go to the correct isle, and then BOOM! There seems to be a million different types of condoms. Practicing safe sex is important, but picking the right condom seems to be difficult. For those Los Angeles residents who received the official 2013 SUIT UP L.A. condom, at least the wrapper was classy looking (the design was done by Adam Lyons, as a part of a contest for their campaign). And for those of you who are faced with the isle at the local grocery store, there are A LOT of options. So, how do you know what condom is right for you?
Well, I'm a bottom, so I don't have to buy condoms.
Regardless of your preference of sexual position you take in the bedroom, it is naive to think that tops will carry one. It is always smart to have some in your nightstand drawer. If you are worried about STDs or HIV, it is your responsibility to be prepared for safe sex, under ANY circumstance.
So, there are tons of brands out there. What brand is best for you? We don't know, but here are some condoms from different brands that we do know about. Kimono Condoms: no, they aren't for Asians, and no they weren't made for geishas. Kimono condoms are about 20% thinner than most condoms. A big excuse for not practicing safe sex is, "It feels better with out one." Well, here is one that is thinner and might give you more sensation. They also offer the Kimono Micro Thin, which is even thinner. Pleasure Plus makes a condom that comes super chic, and ready to use. If you are a top, you should really try this brand. The condoms are ribbed from the inside, and have an extra pouch for more give and friction. Just something to try. And for bottoms? Durex condoms have a variety of warming sensation condoms, as well as tingly sensation condoms, if like that. Trojan makes the Magnum XL for those of you are well endowed. For those who are smaller, or like pressure and blood constriction, there is the Iron Grip Snug Condom. And finally, for those of you who are more adventurous or would like a novelty condom, there are those too. They range from bacon, coffee and KFC flavored, to hello kitty lollipop condoms. They come with inch markings, to prove your size, to custom pop art packaging, so you can literally put your face on your condom wrappers. If you want something on a condom... You can find it.
