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

I found the best one

Made by a manufacturer trusted by many, the Durex Extra Sensitive wins because the even thinner ones by others aren't made from latex therefore they are not as flexible. I rather go for the flexibility than extreme thinness or to compromise size. Still they are one of the thinnest condoms out there. You get exceptional quality and value for your money so you can't go wrong with them.
Thin, perfect size, no odor, purple packaging! You'll feel more!
I can't really find a con. Maybe it could be cheaper. Packaging seems a bit light.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review
This particular condom is one of the best. Here is why: I spent a lot of time researching the one with the best price/value ratio, and this turned out to be it. I tried many from the ultra thin category. Some reviews and descriptions miss some basic facts and lack comparison about the color, odor or thinness. This one has 0.05 mm or 0.0019" thinness. This is truly the most thin natural latex condom by Durex, they do not make anything thinner. An other one, Durex Avanti Bare is synthetic latex (polyisoprene), and that one is 0.04 mm or 0.0015" so if you need anything thinner try that. Okamoto Crown (formerly Skinless Skin) that has the world's thinnest latex condom title is 0.047 / 0.0018” but the Durex products are superior in my opinion. Some of the products mentioned here are currently not available on EF but you might have heard about them. Note that according to my personal study I believe that this is identical to Durex Elite, which is the European version!

Packaging is nice purple, first thing I noticed they use a very thin material to store the condom in. Not sure this is good or bad.

I use my teeth to open them carefully, but they have a zigzag edge on two sides that might work with dry hands. Anyway, when opening them it feels like they are lubed up very well and the whole thing is extremely light, easy on the touch. At first, I tested it on a lone Saturday afternoon to become familiar with it, before it was used normally. Rolling down is very easy, happens without struggle or hassle. It's the perfect size for me. Trust me, it is very bad if the diameter is less than optimal, and if it's hard to roll down there are serious problems. Especially with non-latex products, a few millimeters can mean the whole world. Since this is natural latex, the exceptional stretchiness adds to the bright side. I was very happy that I finally found the perfect size. Length is also just right. Shorter ones may be ok for circumcised guys, but if you are uncircumcised the skin length that needs to be covered by the condom is greater by an inch or so. I'm not talking about the effective length. If you have your skin as it's made by nature, you need a bit longer condom than your dick if you want the ring of the condom at the base. You can tuck under the excessive skin if it's still short but with this wasn't necessary in my case. So it fits well, and is conveniently thin.

Odor: Durex makes it so I can barely sense any smell. Maybe it's their lube or odor masker but it's rather pleasant than bad, if anything is noticeable if you smell it very close. During normal usage, you cannot smell anything.

The condom itself is transparent. You can only see if it's on or not by the ring. There were some times when I didn't know if it slipped up a bit but then I checked and the ring was in place, it sticks well to me. After a minute, tops, you forget you have something on, and the body heat begins to to transfer :) I also feel more in this than any other one, maybe except the Avanti Bare.

We use some Durex Warmer lubricant (water based) with this product. Not that the condom needs it too much but it's fun, so why not. Don't use oil based ones. I tried that without any risk at the table and the Johnson’s baby oil made it rip after one minute.

According to some, ripping is a problem with ultra thin condoms. I always say they forgot to lube or or they last so long that the thrusting eventually dries the thing and then it's the dryness again. As long as you use it correctly, and have proper lubrication they won't break. I never have broken any condoms in my life except intentionally breaking it by excessive stretching by both hands or the oil story above.

To wrap it up, it's a very good choice. Durex Extra Sensitive is a good quality product and I'm going to use it for a long time.

    Yeah but these work very well I stopped searching for now. Maybe in the future there is going to be a better one, I can't know.
