I did a review on Trojan Ultra Thins which are very similar to the Durex extra sensitive. Since trying them out I am in my 6th 36 count box, doing the math thats over 150 uses. Not once have I had one break, rip or tear so I have to give the Trojans a high safety review. I feel perfectly safe using thin condoms and so have any girls that I've been with. Thin condoms are one of those things that I feel you don't notice the thickness of until you go back to the regulars, then you miss these.

I totally agree!

We use Durex Extra Sensitive, and as adirondacker said, we've never had a single problem. We've found that they definitely feel better for both of us than "regular" condoms. Any time I teasingly suggest getting regular condoms, he's all but down on his knees begging to keep using the thinner ones. So no, we don't worry about thinner condoms being less safe. They wouldn't be able to sell them if they were less safe, without huge warnings all over the boxes saying so.

I use Kimono micro thin... for me they are way better than torjan or durex, I'm surprised no else has mentioned them here. they are, for me, the condom that adds the least into the the mix.

I love Okamoto Skinless Skin condoms; they are AMAZING. If your guy is REALLY big, however, you run the risk of them ripping, since they're smaller. If that's the case, I stick with Kimono microthins.

I really don't worry about condoms ripping because I tend to test a brand out with toys before settling on it for sex. I also use birth control pills and get myself and my partners tested regularly, so my chances of getting an STI or getting knocked up are slimmer than most.

We use Okeido condoms most of the time. My b/f has a larger head and they feel so good to him. No complaints about being confined and all. And no latex smell! But they have become too damn expensive so we are looking around.
So wish I could go back on the pill!

Oh I know that they are just as safe. I just have heard people talk about them in the forum I own that they have been worried. I just wondered if others felt this way too.

i have only used one from that brand and it was regular. IDK I wasn't impressed but maybe you are right about the thinner ones. I will have to try that. Thanks!

I've used the durex natural feeling, and there isn't much that's natural about it. Actually a pretty disappointing experience from durex. But everything else from them that I've tried has been stellar.

I haven't done a review on Crown's ultra-thin variety (Skinless Skin) as it is not sold here, though in my experience it is on par with Kimono microthins and Durex extra sensitive. Ours have never broken, as we use a silicone lubricant on both sides of the condom regularly. The thinner condoms conduct heat and sensation very well. Since we've established a long safety record with these, we have no intention of switching back!

Interesting, Crown condoms are commonly used in the porn industry if condoms are used.

We've experimented with four different kinds of condoms- Trojan Enz, Trojan Magnum, Proper Attire and Okamoto Crown condoms. In order of "Best Feel for Him" it ranked as Crown, then Trojan Enz, then Proper Attire and finally the Magnums. I would rank them in the same order for 'what feels best for me'. I think the Crowns are incredible (request to make them available here??) and they even look great with the pink tint. I've seen other condoms produced by the same company, .004 and .003 (the numbers refer to the thickness, or rather thinness, of the material). I saw pictures of each of these placed over a banana and compared to a standard thinness condom (which is .007) and they were essentially invisible. Both my boyfriend and I have considered buying them but because the material is so very thin we're reluctant- we worry it's so thin that it's more likely to break. Although of course they'd still have the same safety standards its a mental block. In the end we use the Crowns on a regular basis and decided to purchase the .003 True Fits for a special occasion.

Yeah that's where it got its fame from. They are good but they have some microfine powdery substance on them. It's barely there but a bit weird. The color is funny but it's thin enough and feels good but nothing special. Durex extra sensitive is better. I tried a 003 one by okamoto (most pricey) it's no good! It's extremely tight and not elastic, GREEN, and the ring just came off once I used it max 3 times. My preference is 004-005. Thinner than that and it's not latex and it's not enough, over this is overkill in terms of security and sacrificiing pleasure.

I like the Durex Extra Sensitive, just because we have had such rotten luck with the Trojan, and I am not saying that they are bad, but they are not for us, lol. The thinner material doesn't scare me since it is almost always what we use, and we also double up on protection, like I am on the pill and we always use a condom, just to dot our i's and cross our t's.
