It's a Condom and That's About All

I personally was left unsatisfied with this condom. It did not live up to its expectations in the slightest. My recommendation would be to try other types of natural-feeling condoms before this type.
Works great as a normal condom, Not much else to it
Not very thin or natural feeling

useful review
I decided to give these condoms a try to get a more "natural" feel. My girlfriend and I had been looking for something new to try and replicate that feeling like there was nothing there. I had higher-than-normal expectations when I was looking into this condom based on the manufacture's statements. Unfortunately, I was actually very disappointed because of these expectations.

The condom itself is actually not that thin despite it being advertised as such. I have tried other "thin-type" condoms, and this was above average for me. While still a little thinner than a normal condom, there was nothing really special concerning its thickness. What was different and noticeable was the larger well at the top. I was not a huge fan of this addition as other brands have made attempts to remove this feature altogether. Removing that feature is what, I think, adds to a more natural sensation and thus a larger well clearly does not help this.

My girlfriend and I started out by using condoms during oral sex, and these did seem to have less of a strong odor and taste with them. As we have moved away from this practice, it is hard to make any real comparisons on the matter.

What I can say is that this condom does what it is meant to do: be a condom. That is about all it has going for it though. There is nothing special that makes this condom more desirable than any other regular condom out there and for that, I was unsatisfied. It definitely does not feel any more natural than any other regular condom. I, nor my partner, never got that feeling as if the condom was not actually there. As I experienced no tearing of the condom during sex, I would say it is not the worst product in the world, but I personally would not purchase this again.

    It's interesting to see how your opinion differed from mine; Great review regardless! If you're still searching for a thin condom, you should try Kimono microthin. When judging sensitivity, my partner enjoyed those the most. We've tried 30+ condoms, so I hope that adds perspective.
