Trojan pleasures fire & ice

Male condom by Church and Dwight

Warm, then really cold!

These latex condoms provide a warm feeling to my penis, and both a cooling and slightly warm effect for my partner. She enjoys these as much as I do. The Fire and Ice design is very roomy, has a slight ribbed texture, and includes a semen reservoir. If you are just shy of feeling comfortable wearing a larger sized condom, these are a good alternative for not pinching and restricting the head of the penis.

My girlfriend and I have used these condoms a lot. The best thing that I can say about them is that they fit me extremely well. I hate when guys say they are above average, or average, so to give an exact idea, my penis is about 7.5 inches long and at least 4 inches in circumference when I am erect. One of the problems I have with most Trojan condoms is that my head feels very jammed into them. When I try to take other condoms off, or thrust inside of my partner wearing a different type of Trojan condom, the latex sticks to the head of my penis in an uncomfortable manner. Normally, I don't factor this into my review of a condom, but I was surprised that this condom didn't cause me discomfort in this way, so from now on I will consider this.

The selling feature of this condom is that it is supposed to send warming and cooling sensations to both partners for stimulation. My girlfriend and I have been skeptical of these sorts of sensations before because sometimes they are a bit too much, but this is just right for me. From the male perspective, I feel the warmth right away once I am wearing the condom and inside my girlfriend's vagina. It is nice to have the extra warmth since I get really annoyed with condoms taking away the natural warm and wet feeling of the inside of a vagina. I cannot testify to how the sensation feels anally, as my partner and I do not use condoms during anal sex.

For my girlfriend, the feeling was tingly and slightly cool. The first time we used this type of condom, she complained that the lube that caused the sensation was getting between her thighs and over her entire vaginal region and making her feel odd. It didn't hurt or irritate her, it just made her a bit more aware of where the lubricant was on her body. Since the first time, she has not complained and actually tells me it makes her more easily aroused and wet to have a cooling sensation. This is great because once everything dries up condoms drag and rip. It's not fun to have to reach for a new condom multiple times before cumming. At first I didn't understand why she said the sensation felt cool, because all I feel is warmth, but after finishing and going to the bathroom with the condom still on I felt a very icy feeling. It's odd, but it doesn't bother us during sex.

In terms of the scent, it is no different than a regular latex condom, unless you intentionally smell it, then you will notice a slight minty and not unpleasant scent. I hate the smell of latex condoms in general, but that is the price you pay for buying latex contraceptives. Oh well. However, you don't want to go putting this condom in your mouth. I asked my girlfriend to lick it for review purposes and, although it was hilarious to watch, it was not an erotic experience. She says it tastes like a combination of chemicals, cough syrup, and an extreme mint flavor. It was enough for me to decide not to taste it for myself. While I'm assuming the inside is slightly different, I don't know for sure because we do not ever have oral after using a condom unless I have thoroughly washed the latex scent off of my penis. I highly recommend you don't get the lubricant into your mouth.

The design of the Fire and Ice condom, as I've said before, fits well on the head of my penis and is definitely long enough without being bunchy. If you are bigger than me, I'd suggest trying these if you want to go with a regular sized Trojan brand condom, otherwise, considering the trouble I've had with tight condoms, I'd go for a Magnum or large condom.

One additional bonus to the design of the condom is that there is a distinctive reservoir for semen. I expected this with all condoms, but if you look at an Ecstasy condom, they don't have one at all which is disappointing. I feel really uncomfortable not knowing where the semen is going to go, it's just a messy thought. Ew! The texture of the condom is slightly ribbed, I'm assuming for female pleasure. While I don't mind the texture, my girlfriend cannot really feel it much after getting used to using the same condom many times. Along with the added sensation of the Fire and Ice lubricant, the ribbed marks are a little lost on us.
Experience
If you are not particularly self lubricating, having issues with a dryer vagina, or just using them anally, use a different source of lube. While the lubricant on the condoms is strong in sensation, it is not very wet and will not do the job for you, especially upon trying to get in the first thrust. I use a thick, water based lube when we need a little extra wetness and it doesn't interfere with the strength of the condom. I would not recommend using anything other than a water based lubricant, as I am not sure that silicone lube will be gentle enough for the thin latex materials. Using water based lube or no lubrication, I haven't had one break on me yet. Trojan is overall pretty good at testing their condoms for strength.

The packaging has the Fire and Ice logo on the front. The box is mostly purple and blue with the Trojan man symbol on it. The box is made of a disposable, cardboard material. If you are new to condoms, you will find the information on how to use the condom useful. The information comes with the packaging. Trojan advertises that they are America's #1 condom brand, and some other marketing information about why you will love the condoms. The lubricant is described as "dual action". I assumed this was because it would be cool and then warm in intervals, but it seems to be that there is a warming sensation on the inside and a cooling sensation on the outside. My girlfriend feels a bit of warm, so perhaps I'm just not as sensitive to the cold lube.

Overall, I would recommend these condoms to anyone who enjoys a bit of temperature stimulation. Also, if you have discomfort towards the head of the penis with other condoms, this would be a good one to try. The latex is not so thick that you will not enjoy sex, but not so thin that it is easily breakable. I buy many different types of Trojan condoms and consider this one among the roomiest other than the Magnums, which are made for larger men. I've had an enjoyable overall experience with these and will continue using them.
