LifeStyles Skyn - male condom by Ansell - review by jenniferlynn83

Great if you like a thicker condom and are trying to get pregnant...

With its thicker material and tight feeling, I would only recommend this to people with below average-sized partners. Probably better for male/male since they proved to be ineffective in preventing pregnancy.
Easy to unroll, large reservoir, good amount of lube
Thick material, tight, not durable

useful review
I had been wondering if I had a latex allergy, so my husband and I ended up trying these out. The material itself (polyisoprene, not polyurethane) is somewhat thicker than others we have tried, and it definitely did not have the "skin-like" feeling that it claims. I personally love when I can feel my husband's cock through the condom, instead of just the latex (or in this case, latex-like material.) We noticed right away though when opening the gold foil package that these condoms definitely have an odd scent, almost like a burning rubber smell. I also noticed the scent on myself afterwards. On the bright side, they were incredibly easy to unroll, and the lube stayed in the condom, instead of being a huge mess like some others we've tried. The tip itself has a larger reservoir than I've seen in any other condom, which can be useful.

My husband said he could barely feel anything when he slid his cock into my pussy for the first time while wearing one. He complained every time we used them and said they seemed on the tight side. But since I worried about the allergy, we just kept using them and I made sure he was well taken care of via foreplay, after we had intercourse.

Things seemed fine though for well over a year, until one day I realized I was pregnant. Not only that, I ended up miscarrying the first time, and got pregnant using this condom a SECOND time! That one stuck. We weren't ready for kids, but had to make ourselves ready! Needless to say, we won't be buying these again though. I don't even think I have the allergy, so I'm pretty sorry I wasted a year using them! I wish we would have just went without a condom if that was going to happen anyways!
