Alright, maybe redundant but I'll give it a whirl.

Both ladies and gentleman, what in your opinion would you consider the best condoms to use and why? What experiences have you had with such to form that opinion?

I recently had a bad experience with condoms that stunk pretty bad and were very thick. Before you go off, the stink was a very strong smell of latex. Like way over the top.

Crown brand..... It's what the porn stars use, very thin but very tough.

Pornstars use Crown condoms? Do they even make large condoms?

I have been trying to find a good large condom, but options are *severely* limited compared to regular size condoms.

I know that some of the ladies like Skyn condoms because they are non-latex (either because they taste better or because they have latex allergies). Skyn also finally came out with a large size.

I usually just stick with Trojan Magnums, but if anyone has recommendations for other large condoms that might be better, then I would definitely be interested in hearing your suggestions.

I've recently discovered something new by a brand called CONTEMPO, named Midnight, Erotically Ebony. Now if anything can be even remotely sexy about a condom, these colored ones are, smile.

That's in Jamaica W.I. though, but I'm sure they are available in the US and CAN as well.

I once got a big sampler pack from a mail order adult shop,and it was my habit to let the lady pick the one she wanted to use. One night the lady I was with very carefully went through the package. There were ribbed,textured,extra lube,thin,extra thin,snug,just about everything you could imagine. Her choice?

She picked a green one. Nothing special,just that it was green.

soooooo.... is it just me or are y'all enjoying seeing who needs the HUGE condoms??


It may come across as boasting, but how else can I find out if anyone knows of better large-size condoms if I don't ask? I'm sure that any well-endowed male will tell you that the selection is pretty limited. We are all adults here, so I'm not going to feel bad about asking.

Della, the black ones have been discontinued by Contempo, unfortunately.

Contempo can be purchased off of the internet. They are nice, only tried them one time, but nice.

The ones that don't break

Usually if you wear ones that fit, put them on correctly, make sure you use the appropriate lube, breakage is reduced significantly.

Trojans leave a nasty rubber smell and flavour behind.

We haven't had to use them for so long, I've forgotten what worked for us.

Trojan Magnums are the same length as regular Trojan condoms, they do have a slightly larger girth. So they don't help me in the length department.

Skyn feels the best so far, for both of us

But she loves Trojan Ribbed for her pleasure

So I switch between the two brands and types, mix it up a bit, right?

Try different ones until you find the ones that work the best for the both of you. Buy a bunch at the drug store late at night and watch the clerk's reaction to your 5 different boxes of condoms you're buying, fun times

I have to ask, what if the woman you're with is allergic to them?

There are non-latex options available. The female condom, Trojan Supra, Lifestyles Skyn, Durex Real Feel are all latex free. Simple Google search can help in locating them.

If you can't find them in your local shops, then ordering online is an option.. I've ordered from Ripnroll in the past. There are lots of online options for you.

I was going to say the same as the other poster ... are you sure Skyn protects against all STDs? Some other non latex condoms have a warning right on the box that they protect against pregnancy, but not STD's, or not all STD's.


'Whatever ones the guy brings since so many don't bring them."

Scary. The last time I was with someone for the first time I brought my own ... in two sizes, since you don't know which is needed.

"Trojan Magnums are the same length as regular Trojan condoms, they do have a slightly larger girth."

Which is why I brought both. The guy before that guy, I brought a normal sized, and it looked so painful on him. lol. I Thought it was going to turn purple and shoot off.

I sound like a hoe ;) Really, I'm not!

I just learned something. Thanks Bebedeleau! I didn't know this "Trojan Magnums are the same length as regular Trojan condoms, they do have a slightly larger girth." My thinking on the magnums was for length and not girth which is something I have struggled with using regular condoms.

I'm giggling at all the guys who say they need Magnums.

I'm giggling at people who think a condom will 100% prevent all STIs. They won't. There really isn't any such thing as safe sex... only safer sex.
