Durex extra sensitive - male condom by Durex - review by ViVix

Ghost Condom.

If you hate condoms, but you want to stay protected, these thin condoms feel almost like nothing. Yet, you aren't going to need to worry about them breaking either. If you're allergic to latex, you need only to follow the suggestion for a non-latex condom right on the back, and choose the Durex Avanti Bare non-latex condoms.
Thin yet strong, plenty of lubrication, stays on well, barely any scent.
I could only find the three packs anywhere I went. May have to order bigger boxes online.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review
Durex boasts of being the World's Leading Condom Brand, and this condom will prove their worth! I have tried a lot of condoms in my time, and the Durex Extra Sensitive Lubricated is a leap and bound above the rest. It's as close to a condom-less feeling that I have experienced while using condoms. Really thin, yet really strong! It also doesn't stretch or slide around changing from position to position, though it is recommended that if you use a condom for oral, you change to a new condom for any new sexual act.

Listed properties include:

Condom size:

Headroom Width:
1 2/5"



This condom is noted as having a light latex smell, but unless I actually put it to my nose and sniffed it, I didn't notice a scent at all. The lack of scent was even true throughout the duration of sex.

As per usual instructions for a latex condom include that some people may have a latex sensitivity, and the condom is used to protect against STIs and pregnancy. It protects better against some STIs than others (see instruction packet). Do NOT use oil-based lubricants as they can break down the material. You can use water-based lubricants, but I had no problem with the amount of lubricant coating on the condom itself. This is a definite plus as I tend to dry up like a menopausal fifty-year-old woman, the second a condom touches me, or the latex smell hits me. Though originally the condom's lubricant felt greasy, the feeling quickly disappeared from my hands without even washing. It left no smell on my hands either.

As for storage, never put these in your glovebox or regularly carry them around in your wallet. Anything above 100 degrees F, and you are asking for trouble (Think about it...humans have normal temps of around 96.8 give or take a few degrees, so even sitting on it can trap that heat).

This condom (as most) is meant to be removed while the man is still erect, so if you want to cuddle with your partner inside of you after, you are going to up your risks.

The packaging is actually a really pretty purple. Sometimes I do color-themed baskets for PRIDE, and these are a perfect ending to the rainbow scheme.

Finally, the actual box offers a suggestion for those allergic to latex, which is a Durex Avanti Bare non-latex condom. I haven't actually tried these, but I appreciate the suggestion.
As soon as I pulled out a purple condom box, my partner was snickering. Purple is his favorite color, but he also asked if we were going to have "creative sex."
Follow-up commentary
I have tried a few other "sensitive" condoms since the Durex extra sensitive including the Trojan Sensitive Bare. I still prefer the Durex condom overall. Also of great importance, I've used at least a dozen of the Durex and have yet to have a single one break. I should buy stock in Durex for the amount of business I will be giving them over the next several years!

    Thanks for the review. I haven't tried these yet, and have never considered Durex as "the leading" brand, but I appreciate your comments!

    It's stated on the box, and I've found it on a few other review sites as well!
