The John Doe of Condoms

There is nothing natural feeling about the Natural Feeling condom. They don't work well for sex, but are good to use on toys for safe play practices.
Great for toys, keeps well to the expiration
No head room, unnatural shape, don't feel natural in any way
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review
The Durex Natural Feeling condom is as plain Jane as it gets. They claim to feel more natural...but they really don't and there is nothing extra special about them in any other way either. This is just a regular, no frills condom, with a deceiving name. There is nothing wrong with that though, if you prefer the traditional shape, smell, and lubricant. Good news is, you know what to expect and there are no surprises or unexpected hurdles. These are excellent for toys though! No need to waste good condoms on toys!

Condom Specs:

Material: Latex
Head Width: 2.05"
Shaft Width: 2.05"
Base Width: 2.05"
Length: 7.48"
Thickness: 0.0027"
Lubrication: Water-Based
Color: Clear
Special Features: Nothing that lives up to the claims

Compared to other condoms:

Starting off with the simpleness...average condoms have a thickness of 0.0027". The Natural Feeling condom is the same. This is one reason that these don't feel natural at all. What were they thinking? The condom would have to be thinner to provide a more realistic feel. You don't get that here, and you don't feel the wonderful details of your partner.

The average condom is 7.5" long. These are a tad shorter at 7.48". The difference is so small that it will go unnoticed if you use average condoms normally. I don't recommend using this condom on a penis longer than 7". The base is not snugger than the shaft width, so they don't have that safety feature to prevent slipping down. The reservoir tip is average, which means it is small and won't hold more than a teaspoon of seminal fluid. It is possible that the semen can travel up the condom and seep out if you are too large, so keep this is mind.

Average condom head width is 2.125". This condom has some tight head quarters. The width is a little over 2" at 2.05" If you have a large head, you won't appreciate the confined space. Plus, not having head room, for even the average guy, will reduce friction and sensitivity essential to producing an excellent orgasm. The head doesn't have room to engorge which could be enjoyed by the female and facilitate a stronger orgasm for her, but not here.

Average shaft and base width is 2", the Natural Feeling is slightly bigger at 2.05". Again, the difference is so slight, that you won't notice anything special here. There is no contour to resemble a natural shape. (P.S. I don't know where the specs came from on Eden for this condom, but it is NOT 1.4" wide-that would mean it would fit like a middle finger).

The water based lubrication is supposed to be the reason this condom feels more natural, but I disagree. Water based lubricant makes skin on skin sex feel more natural, but not when it comes to a condom. The latex creates unnatural friction that needs to be added in excess by a super slick silicone lubricant to feel more natural. This is my experience anyway. The amount of lubricant is okay, but make sure you add more if you need. This will reduce the chance of breakage due to dry friction. The smell is only slightly less noticeable than average condoms.

The condoms come in easy to open foil wrappers. The wrappers used to look different than other Durex wrappers and were all black with some blue writing. The box is the same though, so still look for the same box if you have tried these before.
I really don't like these for sex at all. The shape is horrible and the worst it could possibly get, BUT they are great for toys! The simple shape is great for traditional vibrators and non-realistic dildos. The lubricant is easy to clean and is safe with all materials.

I have never had a Natural Feeling condom break. Keep them at room temperature areas away from direct sunlight and never in a wallet. They keep well til their expiration, so this is a great condom to buy if you don't have a steady score.

I am giving these condoms 2 stars because they are of average size, but not natural shape. They also lack head room. I give them 1 star based on that but add a star because they are good for toys. They also keep well to their expiration.
Follow-up commentary
If you didn't get the message the first time around, you should avoid these condoms at all costs. They can often be found at clinics and things like that for free if you have no other option, they are not the worst. They don't provide any extra pleasure and take away from pleasure if anything.

    Great review! Your condom reviews are always really precise, I like that.
  • ~LaUr3n~
    Thanks so much! I work hard to give you the info that can't be easily found. I have to call manufacturers for the most accurate info
  • Selective Sensualist
    I have no idea how anyone could rate this review as anything less than "Extremely Useful." You go far beyond what anyone would consider reasonable in reviewing condoms and are always meticulous in providing as much detail as possible. Products like these are extremely difficult to review, but you manage to do a fantastic job nonetheless.

    LOL thanks hun. Idk, they did that on many. Sometimes reviews just are not as useful to others for weird reasons. I agree they are hard to review, and this is why I have come a long way with these lol It took a long time to get a great template. Others have 'adopted' it as well. I am glad it works for you! That means a lot to me
  • SexYnCute Couple
    Excellent Review! Only wish Eden sells non latex condoms and toy covers. I don't like latex, and we can't had latex due to allergies in the house.
  • ~LaUr3n~
    They do sell a few non-latex condoms actually
