If you’re a virgin, your first time can be exciting and scary. Choosing the right condom will help protect you from STDs and pregnancies while boosting sensations.
Buying a variety pack will let you try out a few different types to find your favorites. The thinnest condoms on the market, they promise a close feel and no odor.
If you want something that feels a little more luxurious than latex condoms, Lelo Hex is worth trying. They’re thin, easy to remove and feel like second skin when rolled on. They also have a bigger reservoir compared to most other condoms, which helps them hold more semen for both partners and reduce the chances of leakage.
Hex’s shape also makes it easier to tell which way up the condom is, which can be a big help for first-time users. And although they aren’t completely odorless, they smell much less sour than latex condoms.
If you’re not a fan of Hex, SKYN Elite is an excellent alternative. It’s made with polyisoprene, which is softer than Hex and doesn’t contain latex, so it’ll be more comfortable for those with latex allergies.
Another bonus of SKYN Elite is that it’s harder to break than Hex. But, it’s still not as flexible or form-fitting, which can be a problem if you have a girthier penis. It’s also more expensive than Hex. So, it’s really a matter of personal preference.
SKYN Elite is the latest condom offering from Lifestyles’ popular SKYN line, and it’s 10% thinner than its predecessors. The non-latex condoms are lubricated with a long-lasting, silicone based lube, and they’re also odor free.
These LifeStyles condoms are made of polyisoprene, a synthetic rubber that can be used by people with latex allergies. Unlike latex condoms, polyisoprene doesn’t contain the proteins that cause latex allergies.
Skyler recommends using this condom with water-based or silicone-based lube, but she advises against oily lubes, which can break down the material and lead to latex erosion. “Oil may also increase the friction and temperature during sex, which can cause irritation,” she says.
Another benefit of the SKYN Elite is its reservoir teat, which holds more sperm than a standard Trojan Supra Bareskin condom and can help to heighten sensation. But, like all condoms, proper use is essential to protect against pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV/AIDS. Always read the label and follow directions. (Proper use of condoms reduces the risk by more than 98%, when compared to no protection at all.)
Trojan Supra Bareskin
These are America’s thinnest non-latex condoms, and recommended for latex sensitive people. They are made from microsheer polyurethane that allows them to be much thinner than latex condoms, but they’re still super strong. They also don’t have that plastic bag feel you might expect from other non-latex condoms. They come lightly lubricated, but don’t use additional personal lubricants on these since they could damage them.
They’re 40% thinner than a regular latex condom, but they’re still as durable and dependable as you’d expect from Trojans. They also don’t smell like latex, which is always a plus. These condoms help reduce the risk of unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) like gonorrhea and herpes. They’re also electronically tested to help ensure their reliability. Just be sure to use them correctly every time. Just follow the directions on the package. They’re also available in a pack of six, which makes it easier to stock up for your next tryst. Whether you’re new to condoms or a pro, they’ll make for a great first experience. And they’re sure to leave you wanting more.
Durex Texture Condoms
If you’re looking for something extra sensual, these ribbed condoms might be right for you. They’re made with ribs and dots, which add stimulation for both partners, as well as an extra slippery lube. They’re also latex-free, which means they’re safer than standard condoms and won’t cause any irritation during penetration.
Another great feature of these ribbed and dotted condoms is that they contain a delay lubricant, which helps to extend intercourse and prevent the accidental ejaculation that sometimes happens. This can be particularly dangerous for women, so this extra safety feature is a big plus.
These textured condoms are made from polyisoprene, which is a non-latex material that’s also good for people with latex allergies and sensitivities. They’re also thin and comfortable to wear, making them a great choice for couples who want to experiment with different sensations during sex. Plus, they’re easy to find in most drugstores, so you can always have a supply on hand. They’re also available in a variety of flavors, which can be fun to try out during oral sex.
