Trojan ultra ribbed condoms - male condom by Church and Dwight - review by Jul!a

Perhaps A Touch Too Much Texture?

Those who enjoy extreme texture will definitely enjoy these condoms. Sensitive vaginae will probably not enjoy the very pronounced ribs very much, and should look into other condoms. Aside from the texture though, it's not much out of the ordinary and most guys won't really be able to pick it out of a lineup.
Relatively low latex scent, Lots of texture
Some may find the texture too extreme, Doesn't really do anything special for the guy

extremely useful review
The rundown: Condoms serve a basic function of being protection. Whether they're protecting you from pregnancy or protecting you from STD's they've usually got your back. Condoms can sometimes be somewhat boring, so in an attempt to spice things up, condom companies came out with some textured condoms. This is a ribbed variety.

The packaging: The box of 3 looks just like every other box of three you might find out there. The flap was glued shut and inside you'll find directions on how to use them.

The boring specs: The "average" condom is about 7.5" long, 2" wide at the base and along the shaft and in the head, and .0027" thick. The dimensions I could find online say that this one is supposed to be longer than average at 7.8", but out of my stash, it measured about 7" long and about 1 3/4" wide.

The potentially interesting design features: These condoms are well, ribbed. With some condoms that doesn't really mean much of anything, but these have a very obvious texture. The ribs are raised enough to be easily felt with a finger, almost reminding me of a raised seam to the touch. During use it's very easy to notice that they're there. If you don't have enough lube, you might end up feeling a little rubbed raw.

The exciting "what it was like" part: This was another one that to my husband wasn't anything special. He was able to finish without any problems, and could tell the condom was there, but it didn't really get in the way. I wasn't as hot on them as I thought I might be. At first, even with lube, the ribs were almost overwhelming, to the point that I almost asked my husband to take it off. But I wanted to give it a chance to prove me wrong, and after I got more into everything it was a lot harder to notice they were there. I could feel them, but they weren't overwhelming now. There was a bit of a latex scent, but nothing that detracted from the mood for me or my husband. The lube was smooth to the touch, but I felt the need to add more.

The important safety stuff: Ok, real quick let's talk about things you should and shouldn't do with condoms. Do add more lube if you feel like you're drying out. Lack of lube can cause increase friction and cause the condom to break. Don't add an oil based product (either an oil based lube, Vaseline, body lotion, etc) for lube. The oil base can degrade the latex and also cause breakage. Use a water or silicone based lube instead. Do keep your condoms in a cool, dry location. Don't keep them in your glove box, in the wallet you sit on all day, and at the bottom of your purse are not good places for condoms. In the purse it could get punctured, and being in all that heat can also degrade the latex which is again, not good.
Overall these condoms aren't really bad, but I'm not in love with them either. They serve their purpose, and do so with a lot of texture. Some nights I'm into that, some times I'm not. For the nights I really want a lot of texture with my husband, I'll pick one of these. Otherwise I'm fairly neutral on these.

I did go back and forth on the rating for a while though. They do excel at giving texture, which is what they were designed for, and that's why I ended up bumping them up to 4 stars from 3.

    Thanks for the information about the dimensions. For some, that 1/4" can be very important.
