Male condom by Durex

A slightly thinner, snugger rubber

A good thin condom with silicone lube, and absolutely no latex smell. If you are packing a girthy package, you may want to pass on these as they are snug and may be a bit uncomfortable.

Guest review written by the husband of Lover's Beloved.

Condoms can play a lot of important roles in a sexual relationship. The most simple offer basic protection against all sorts of sexual side effects, while rubbers with nubs, swirls, colors, and flavors can add to the enjoyment of the sexual act itself. All these fancy add-ons aside, the most common use for a condom is as a barrier. If your condom serves this purpose well, then anything else that it can offer is a bonus.

Whether you are by yourself, with a new partner, or with a monogamous spouse, you want a condom that offers the kind of protection that you don't have worry about. The new Durex Sensi-Thin condoms have the backing of the world's largest condom manufacturer, to put your sexual anxiety at ease when it's time to roll your rubber on; but they claim to offer something more and exciting inside the purple package.

The Sensi-Thin condom claims to be a full 20% thinner than its extra-thin counterparts. That's a claim that sounds good but, if you work out the math, the difference between the New Sensi-Thin line and their old standby the "Extra-sensitive" is only 0.06mm. For those of you in the States, that's only a difference of 0.0002 inches, or about 1/20 the thickness of a human hair. To be honest, the difference in thickness between these two brands (we are long time users of the "extra-sensitive" line as our primary form of birth control) is completely indistinguishable.

What is noticeable, however, is the overall width of the condom. Compared to the Extra-Sensitive it is much more snug, without the benefit of extra room at the head. The new Sensi-Thin condom is therefore much harder to put on, and for me was simply too tight. During use I was so distracted by how tight it was, that I might as well have been wearing a garden hose.

To its benefit the condom claims "no latex scent", and I can vouch for the truth of that claim. Durex uses their standard silicone based condom lube with these, so they work well with your own silicone based or even water based lubes. Never use oil based lubes with a latex condom.

Because of the reputation of Durex manufacturing high quality condoms, and because this rubber does what it is designed to do, it gets three stars. If it had been a bit wider, it may have gotten four. If you are looking for a quality rubber to put your mind at ease, I recommend the Sensi-Thin; though it’s no ground-breaking, earth-shattering, development in condom design, despite the claim to be newer, thinner, and better.

    Thanks for the review! We're also devoted users of the "extra sensitives," and have found them to be just the right size. Thanks for the warning that these are more snug, that must have been an unpleasant surprise!
