Choosing The Right Condom

Use the condoms that are right for you both!

Many people have their favorite type of condom. For some, a feeling of safety may be paramount. For others, they may want something thinner to help feel closer. While others still may love the feeling of a ribbed or dotted condom for an extra sensation. We may all have our favorite, but it’s also great to experiment and try something new whilst also feeling safe in the knowledge that we’re protected from risk of pregnancy or infection.

Different condoms can completely transform your sexual experience: for intense sex, for creating additional sensations, for allowing you to feel comfortable and free, or all the way to providing new experiences to bring you closer together as a couple. And for you, maybe it will be all of the above!Remember, what might work for you may not work between you and your partner. They all come in different shapes, thicknesses, widths, materials, textures and with different lubes. To guide you here are six moods that might take you – with the condoms to fit the situation.


Whether you feel like going all night- or for a shorter session using a whole night’s worth of energy – you might feel that you need a little bit of extra security. Durex Extra Safe are slightly thicker than standard condoms (though still less than a tenth of a millimetre thick) and will help to give you the feeling of extra security


For a feeling of deep connection and real intense contact, a thinner condom can make all the difference. Durex produces three thin condoms: Thin Feel, Ultra-Thin Feel and Intimate Feel, an extra thin condom with extra lubrication. These help transfer body-heat between the two of you, as well as helping you to feel every movement, every twitch and every sensation.

Ribbed condoms can add intensity for both parties as the dots and ribs stimulate areas in new and exciting ways. The different texture provided by these condoms can feel as exciting as a sex toy. These dots and ribs can come in a number of different patterns; Durex produces the ribbed Tickle Me, the dotted Excite Me, and the Pleasure Me which combines the two, for dual pleasure.


All condoms come lubricated, it’s essential in preventing rips and breaks in the condom, but it also helps the two of you move together. To help you both reach your climax together Durex has produced the Mutual Climax. The Mutual climax condom has ribs and dots on the outside to speed her up, and benzocaine lube on the inside to slow him down.
