Male condom by Durex

Your love is like a choke hold

Durable and dependable Durex put forth their thinnest condom to date and managed an amazing .049 mm width without compromising the product strength or quality. The only downside to this style is they seem to be tighter and smaller than the standard size condom and may not be comfortable for all wearers.
Durable, lubricated, ultra-thin but super strong.
Horrendously tight, girthy guys beware.

extremely useful review
So...the Durex Sensi-Thin condoms...*sigh* What a friggin waste of latex these turned out to be. Packaged in a standard issue box, black cardboard with a light blue swirl emblazoned with the Durex and Sensi-Thin logos. The packaging touts them as providing a “super thin feel” and being “the thinnest Durex latex condom ever” and “20% thinner than the standard latex condom. They failed to mention they're also tighter than their standard condoms.

The condoms themselves are made of a translucent natural latex rubber. They are lubricated with what is to the best of my knowledge a hypo-allergenic, water based lubricant. I have ridiculously sensitive skin and can't use many brands of condoms because the lubricants on them irritate me, but Durex's lubricant doesn't bother me in the least. The lubricant on the condom is slick and makes putting it on a breeze, even when your in a hurry. According to the specs on the packaging this particular line of condoms are .049 mm thick, or thin as it were. We filled one to ridiculous proportions with water to no ill effect, and noticed no difference in structural integrity compared to their standard “extra sensitive” style condom. They're pretty damn resilient and in 6 years of using Durex condoms I've never had one break. I find them to be completely lacking the normal nasty rubber smell, alas the taste-o-tire remains.

Unfortunately, these seem to be smaller and tighter than their standard condoms. My husband describes “himself” as average, and I'm inclined to agree, after using these condoms, and they were on him MAYBE 15 minutes or so (we tend to wait till the end to throw one on). My husband had an indentation around the base of his business from the tightness of the condom, one that took a full half hour for the tissue return to normal. He also complained that the condoms took away from the pleasure of the sex due to the sheer discomfort their tightness brought on. He said it felt like he was losing circulation in his bits towards the end of our activities.

I'd have to recommend these for smaller gents(and how many of you are gonna man up and admit to that one?!) or for use with “standard” sized toys, since toys can't loose circulation. All in all they're good quality, durable and can stand up to a very vigorous session of lovin', but unless you're on the smaller side, they're just going to be damn uncomfortable. We didn't like them at all, but Durex does offer a money back guarantee, and we contemplated sending them back, but decided we'd save 'em for toy use.

Since they are natural latex, no oil based lubricants should be used, the lubricant that comes on the condoms can be washed off easily with soap and water. Do not use these if you have a latex allergy.
We tried these twice, once with normal vaginal at a relaxed pace, and once for a rather aggressive anal session. Both times my husband complained of feeling like he was losing circulation in his bits and that the condom's tightness was detracting from the pleasure of the lovemaking. Both times, as well, he was left with "ring around the rosie" that took a full half hour for his tissue to return to normal. I'm giving these 3 out of 5 stars because they're quality, well made, and dependable; it's just this style is too tight and small.
Follow-up commentary
these condoms were WAY too tight for my husband, we keep them around for use on toys only. I still can't believe that he was literally BRUISED after using these.

    My husband had the same problem. I think he's a bit on the girthy side in general, but these were agonizing for him. (and he snapped one trying to get it on when he was fully hard. Don't think I ever want to hear that wail again)
