Your preferred brand of condoms?

Tori Rebel Tori Rebel
I know we all have our allegiances to different brands of condoms but I was wondering which would really come out ahead, and why. If you have a favorite, or favorites, please explain - if there is a brand you do NOT like, please tell us why too. I know not everyone here uses them, as many of us are in fluid bonded relationships with other forms of birth control, but even if you just use them on your toys or for backup birth control, please feel free to contribute.

I haven't actually needed to use a condom in 9 years, BUT back when I did I always liked trojans the best. Since it's been so long there are probably new ones that I am just not aware of though.

I am, when I use them, a Durex and ONE girl. Durex Love is by far my trustworthy standby, but I really like ONE and think they make a good quality condom, plus they appeal to my artistic side. I also used to like Atlas brand which I didn't list only because it's less popular and rarely seen in stores.

My worst condom experiences, by far have been with the Trojan Enz. They were sooo fragile and consistently when I was younger, and I knew other people at the same time that had similar experiences and a few that became pregnant from them. I haven't used one in years so hopefully they've improved but I'll never trust the brand again.

We rarely use condoms for sex, but I do have a box of Lifestyles polyisproine condoms for use with toys on occasion. I'm allergic to latex, and it is virtually impossible to find large size condoms in polyisproine. Durex makes a large size condom in a different plastic, but it has an unacceptably high breakage rate.

We'd probably use them more if we could find the right combination of size and formulation.

I very rarely use them with my current partner because he's had a vasectomy and we're monogamous and tested, but before him I used them frequently, and before my first marriage as well.

My wife and I dont use condoms anymore, but when we did it was always trojans

I only have used trojans so I can't say for certain but it's what I picked. Open to try others though.

I've always, always loved Durex. Something about Trojan just seemed too...cocky, and I disliked it.

Happily we are not using condoms at present as I now have an IUD. We used condoms for over a year...Okeido were awesome but expensive but I did find a place to buy in larger quantities, reasonably. EF had them but only in 3 packs. My b/f has a large head and they fit him comfortably w/o complaints. LifeStyles were tight but the latex odor is so not sexy to me.

Yea, 9 years ago is when I got together with my husband. We were monogamous and tested and I was on bc pills so that's when we stopped using them. Actually though I think we did use them for a while after we had our third child and before his vasectomy had taken affect. I'm pretty sure we used trojans at that time too!

Never really used condoms with my wife except for a few months after the birth of our children. I tried a bunch of different brands and generally liked Crown.

I've never been a fan of Crown but the people that I know that use them never seem to want to use anything else! They definitely seem to have customer loyalty on their side

Hubby and I always used Trojan when we first got together.

I keep some condoms on hand for some toys, but they're generally whatever's cheap and has good ratings, since strength isn't a big deal.

I quite like the Lifestyles ultra-ribbed (name changed to "vibra ribbed" recently, I think) condoms. They're the only ribbed condoms that have ever really made a difference for me - mostly because the ribs extend all the way to the tip, which is where they actually feel good. The sensation of ribs on my labia is much more irritating than arousing.

Other than that, neither I nor my partner particularly care. We usually get huge variety packs of condoms online and just grab one without thinking. The only time he's ever spoken up is when we unknowingly got one with desensitizing cream in the tip.

I've always liked the variety packs as well...it's how I've gotten to try just about every brand out there and how I found some of the ones I really like.

Trojan, I've rarely had a breakage and they are comfortable. So I go with these!
08/11/2010
OhMy! OhMy!
We used to use Trojan, but after switching to Lifestyles Ultra Thin, we've never looked back! They're ultra thin for sensation, and are not as restrictive as most Trojans. We haven't had any breakages or tears in the 5+ years we've used them.

I like the ONE condoms. The glow in the dark ones are my favorite It's like a little lightsaber! (I don't care that I sound like a kid, Star Wars is epic, and I call it my lightsaber!) *awkward silence...* so... yeah. After those I like the Trojan Intense ribbed.

I prefer durex because they tend to have a nicer fit and i've been told that the taste on the flavored ones last longer than some other brands we've tried

As a whole, Trojan and Lifestyles have the best lubricants and naturally contoured shapes. Trojan has the best larger condoms and they both have great specialty condoms.

Durex used to be my favorite but they just aren't keeping up with Trojan the last few years.

I loveeee me some rough riders. It may be the studs and ribs, but mainly, just the nostalgia.

I'm allergic to latex... so my selection is biased, which sucks. There's not many condoms I CAN use.. which makes things extremely difficult and frustrating for me and my partners.

I love their packaging! I also like that you can submit your own designs to be considered for their packaging. I was on their 'street team' for a while and got TONS free.

Did you have a good experience? I'm considering doing this on my university campus but I can't find anyone who will do it with me
