Need help choosing or have a question about condoms? Here’s some information to get you started, and tips for choosing the perfect condoms for you.
The different types of condoms include classic, ultra-thin, added sensations such as ribs and bumps for enhanced pleasure, flavoured condoms to please the taste buds during oral sex, and different sized to fit every penis perfectly, which means there's no excuse for having sex without one. Latex-free and vegan are also available.
The purpose of all condoms is to prevent contact with semen and vaginal fluids by limiting skin-to-skin contact in order to avoid pregnancy and the spread of sexually transmitted infections or diseases, so choose your condom type based on what you plan to use it for and ensure you’re playing safe.
Tip: Only use a condom once and dispose of it immediately after use. Condoms shouldn't be used if the seal is torn or broken, or if the product has expired.
In order for condoms to work, they need to fit properly. Therefore, it’s important to select the right size for your penis. The condom should be snug and stay on securely during sex and sexual acts. While normal sized condoms will fit most, if normal condoms don’t fit you we recommend trying out differently sized condoms.
If normal sized condoms are too big or too small to fit on your penis and stay on securely during sex, you should consider condom brands that offer different sizes such as MySize condoms. MySize manufactures condoms in seven different sizes, which you select depending on the circumference of your penis. This ensures you will get the perfect fit, which will help to put your mind at ease and focus on the fun and intimate task at hand. Read the MySize Chart to find your perfect size.
Not everyone likes the sensation of wearing condoms and some believe it decreases the sensitivity and enjoyment of sex, but the benefits of wearing condoms far outweigh the negative. If sensation is a concern, you can purchase added sensation condoms condoms, which includes ribbed and textured rubbers, as well as ultra-thin condoms, to help enhance sexual pleasure. Think of them as a protective raincoat made from rubber latex, keeping you safe and protected from sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancy.
Yes, most lubricants are safe to use with condoms, with the exception of oil-based or petroleum jelly-based lubricants, which can weaken the latex and could cause tearing. Water-based lubricant is always safe to use, and if you're ever unsure, always read the ingredients before use.
