Swing And A Miss!

These seemed to be mostly hit or miss, and for us they were more of a miss. They're a great idea in theory, but I think you could recreate your own with a warming and cooling lube and a favorite condom and have it come out with better results. As a condom otherwise, it's not that bad.
Warming and Cooling sensations together are interesting, Functions just fine as a condom
Won't fit larger guys, Sensations don't last long, Smell

extremely useful review
The Overview: A lot of people complain about having to use condoms, so condom companies try to spice things up and make them a bit different from time to time. The fire and ice line from Trojan was one attempt to make things a bit more interesting in the bedroom.

The packaging: It's got an instructional pamphlet and information on how to properly use a condom inside. If reading instructions isn't quite your thing, you can also watch this short video as well.

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. Out of my own collection, I measured it at about 7 3/4" without the reservoir tip, about 1 1/2" across the base, and just over 2" across at the head. I don't have a micrometer, but these didn't feel especially thick or especially thin. My husband is about 5" long and about 5" around and they weren't overly loose on him. I might steer clear of these if you're on the larger side of average or bigger.

Lube and smell: There was definitely a scent to these, but I didn't find it overpowering really. I could still smell it after he had put the condom on and we had started having sex, and again whenever his hands were near my face, but otherwise it wasn't that bad. Well, I say that as I complain about how much I didn't like the smell. It's not the worst thing ever, but if you're sensitive to latex scents this will probably bother you. In addition to the latex smell, there's also a hint of mint for I'm guessing whatever makes it cooling. The lube itself felt smooth and silky, and surprisingly was enough to last the whole time we were going at it, although towards the end I wanted to reapply some lube.

The potentially interesting design features: The really neat part of these condoms is the lube. It's supposed to be a lot like Icy Hot where it's both hot and cold, and that will add an extra "kick" to the sex. In reality, the feeling doesn't last as long as it could have. There are no other special features to the condom, it's just a smooth shaft that tapers down at the base for a snug fit.

The exciting "what it was like" part: I was definitely able to feel a cold sensation when we first started at it. The warming was a lot harder for me to detect. But about 10 minutes later and this was just a regular condom to the both of us. As a condom, it functioned well enough and surprisingly didn't need any extra lube for most of our sex. Towards the end I definitely felt like I needed more though, and that was after about 15 minutes.

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 use anything oil based to lube up with. Water and silicone based lubes are fine, but oil based lubes can degrade the latex. 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, or at the bottom of your purse. These are not good places for condoms. In the purse it could get punctured, and being in all that heat can also degrade the material which is again, not good.
We were both really excited at the idea of these condoms, but weren't really blown away at all. It's a neat feeling, but honestly we could pick up some regular condoms we know don't smell strongly and just use a cooling lube and have it be exactly the same for us. You could probably save yourself some money and just pick up a warming and cooling lube and add them to your condoms for a better experience.

    Just curious how slick these things sometimes lubed condoms make your hands feel greasy, and you can't seem to get it off of them.
