Durex: False Claims Condom

My partner and I hated these for his penis. BUT, I did like them on toys. I plan to use the rest of the box for that. All guys have more shape than a straight shaft, so I can't give these anything higher than a 3. If you have textured toys and a larger man, I recommend getting these for those toys only.
Thin, low latex smell, have not had one break, good for textured toys
Not contoured or natural shaped, too small for even the average girthed penis
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review
The Durex Sensi Thin condom claims to be the thinnest condom Durex has ever made. I beg to differ. I believe that this condom is .0019" thick, but this is not the first Durex condom with that thinness. The only way this condom could be the thinnest condom made by Durex, is if they simply changed the name of a previous thin condom. They also claim to be .006mm thinner than the leading Ultra Thin Trojan condom. The difference is actually more like a third of that, .002mm which isn't noticeable in comparison. What's funny is their site and packaging don't even agree with each other. One says that these condoms are 25% thinner while the other says 20%. Whatever, I guess.

Okay, minute details out of the way. These condoms ARE thinner than most AVERAGE condoms, but they are not thinner than most condoms that are considered "thin" on the market today. Their shape is lacking and kind of restrictive as well. What's the use of having a thinner condom if the shape prohibits the movement needed to arouse the sensitive head of the penis? I recommend these condoms to smaller than average guys in girth, so this movement can be obtained easier. If they do fit, they can increase sensitivity.

Compared to average condoms:

The Sensi Thin condom is .0019" thick. This is much less than the average 0.0027" on the market today for average condoms. If you fit into this condom, and are not strangled by it, you will feel the difference. A thinner condom means more sensitivity. More sensitivity can mean a larger erection and more pleasure for the person on the receiving end. Unfortunately, this is definitely one condom that is not made for the average penis or larger ones either. It is better for the smaller guys.

Length is not as much of an issue as girth though. These condoms are about 7.75". Average condoms are about 7.5" and are made for guys who are around 6". The extra length is great for long and thin guys, but usually, a longer length means a thicker width so this is only useful to a select handful of erections. They do feature a larger than average reservoir tip that will allow for about two or three teaspoons of spooge. This allows for the semen to dissipate and not tighten around the head as much.
I recommend these condoms for no one larger than 7.25".

The main downfall to this condom is the lack of taper and realistic shape. This condom doesn't have a good head width size. Average head width is 2.125". This condom has only 2.05". This doesn't allow for head friction needed to arouse the penis. The receiving party won't be able to feel the natural shape of the head either. This might diminish their pleasure as well.

Average shaft and base width is 2". This condom is .05" larger for each measurement, but it isn't really enough to make a large difference and still is super tight on guys who are 5.25" in circumference or larger (might even be on smaller). I am basing this off of a dildo I had on hand. My partner is larger and was even more worse off. If you are small enough to wear these condoms comfortably, you might also have to be aware that the base is not smaller than the shaft and might allow for slippage.

The lubrication is water based, but there isn't much of it. I recommend adding more, especially if you are worried about a thin condom breaking. I never have had one of these break, but I have only used three of them. They do not have a strong latex smell which is a plus.

My partner and I hated these for his penis. BUT, I did like them on toys. I plan to use the rest of the box for that. Since not every guy is my partner's size, I don't want to give these a super low rating of 1. All guys have more shape than a straight shaft though, so I can't give these anything higher than a 3. If you have textured toys and a larger man, I recommend getting these for those toys.
Follow-up commentary
Considering that these are not a good fit for my partner, we will never get them again. I ended up giving away the rest of the pack.
