Some Studs You Can Really Feel

While some women were blessed with vaginas that can easily feel the most subtle of textures, most of us were not. For the first set of women, these condoms will probably be too much. For the rest of us? Well kick back and enjoy yourself some easily felt texture.

extremely useful review
So many condoms try so hard to give the women extra pleasure, and yet so many seem to fail. However Lifestyles has given us a studded condom that you don't need the uber sensitive vagina to feel.

These condoms meet all the "standards" of condoms with a length of 7.5", a width of about 1.75" along the base and shaft, and a thickness of .0024". What does break all the standards here is the added texture that can actually be felt. Rows upon rows of small little studs that run all over the shaft. The reservoir tip and the head are clear of texture though. It's just an illustration, but this might help you visualize some.

A lot of guys (and toys) will be able to wear this with no problem. However, if it feels uncomfortably tight or starts leaving marks, take it off and find something bigger.

Near as I can tell, the lubricant is water based, but I haven't found any real evidence one way or the other. I can tell you that it's got a decent amount, but unless you're dripping wet, you might want to add some more lube anyway to reduce friction, since friction can lead to tearing of the condom. You can feel free to use any body safe water or silicone based lube you want here. Oil based can degrade the latex, again, possibly causing breakage.

There really wasn't any kind of smell with these either. You'd have to stick them darn near up your nose to catch a whiff of anything, even though they are made of latex. You should store these, and all other condoms, in a cool, dry location. Ie: not your glove box, not the console between your front seats, and not your wallet.

Now for the part you really want to hear about, the texture. The box says that there's over 100 raised rubber studs "in all the right places" to offer "more stimulation for her and more satisfaction for both." When looking at the condom on a penis, you can definitely see the studs, and easily feel them with your fingertip as well. Now while most studded condoms start to fail at being felt during use, this one was easily able to be felt, even with excess lube. More sensitive vaginae might have issues with this, but most should be fine.
Studded condoms that I can actually feel in use are few and far between. I've had a few hits before, and this one joins those at the top of my highly ranked list. For me, it was lovely. While I couldn't feel each individual nub by any means, I could definitely feel texture, and that was a whole lot nicer than just slick latex going back and forth. My husband didn't think there was any real difference for him between these and most other condoms, except for the fact that he got to enjoy my enjoyment more.

If you're looking for a good textured condom, you should definitely start here.
