It really depends on mood, but we also throw some studded ones into the mix, too. That way, we have three options for play time!

I used to love studded condoms before I developed a latex allergy. Now I don't use condoms anymore.

I prefer ribbed. It has a bit of texture that makes a difference.

Plain, because if it's ribbed, it's latex, and that's a bag of no I just don't want to open.

Texture has irritated me in the past, so I voted for regular condoms. If I were in a stable relationship, it would be nice to not have to use them at all. It all irritates me so much.

Either we don't notice a difference at all, or the texture is actually uncomfortable. What's worse is 'heating, tingly or cooling' sensation condoms which can cause burning and irritation and end the sex session quickly. We prefer smooth condoms with regular lubrication.

Plain, smooth ones. I'm paranoid textured ones would break.

I don't feel a difference between regular and ribbed condoms, but we use ribbed ones because those are one of the only types that have a little extra room inside and fit my man.

I loathe condoms, and fortunately I'm in a monogamous relationship and on birth control so don't have to use them anymore. I think no matter what kind you use, they all feel unnatural. I like the skin to skin feeling.

I generally use plain - ribbed can get a little much for me sometimes.

We don't use them. We try new ones out from time to time, but on average don't use them.

I only use condoms with play partners, so whatever they prefer is what we use. I don't really care one way or the other so it seems.

I used to use Trojan Ultra Thins. But we've been together for about 7 years and that whole condom thing got reeeal old.

I'm not convinced there's much of a difference between regular and ribbed. I don't have much experience with ribbed, though. I guess I could be wrong. But I strongly prefer nonlatex, which typically only comes in "regular."

I hate condoms with a passion. They feel like little, painful trash bags that rub me the wrong way. Textured is better than normal, but even so -- I can't get over the feeling.

Ribbed condoms are hit and miss with me. Sometimes the ribs hurt. My boyfriend and I use plain, ultra thin non-latex condoms by Trojan. He has never complained about wearing condoms and it feels good to him either way so it doesn't matter.

I didn't know so many people hated condoms.
