Lifestyles Ultra Lubricated Condoms

These are great condoms. No, they don't provide any extra sensations, or lubrication like the box states, but they last very well and are cheap considering how reliable they are. They can stretch quite a bit, fit comfortably, and although they don't have any extra lubrication, they are lubricated very well and it should last awhile during use.
can be found everywhere
no extra lube

Lifestyles is probably the second most well-known condom producer in the United States, if not the world. Manufactured by Ansell, these barriers can be found in health clinics and gas stations throughout the country and are extremely reliable, if not incredibly boring. Ignore the name of these, because they are the exact same as every other condom under the sun. Latex, lubricated, little red packaging- nothing to write home to anyone about. However, they are reliable, and that's hands-down THE most important aspect about any barrier ever.

These come in a box of 3 for 4.99, which is pretty average for condoms and can be considered a great deal when compared to probably any box of Trojans, especially since I personally think they hold up better during use. Once again I will point out that these are indeed latex, so for those of you whose skin doesn't react well with it, these most certainly aren't for you. Like most condoms, they get a little larger at the tip, which is called the "reservoir" and is where "everything" goes when you're finished. I've used these plenty and plenty of times, and I have never noticed more lubrication on them than on the normal Lifestyles lubricated ones, so if you're looking for something a little more slippery, these aren't it, unfortunately.

These are smooth, unflavored, and only have a safety rating of 4 on EF's scale. They're not compatible with any other oil products, so don't throw more lube on top of these, because that's not gonna help anything at all and will actually only hurt by reacting with the lubrication the condom, as well as the latex, depending on what you use overtop of them.

Tips on condom use, for these and any others: don't keep them in your wallet. That is a huge mistake that many people make. The reason for this is that the wallet can wear a hole in the condom over time, and a hole in a condom 100% defeats the purpose of using it.

Don't double wrap or any other of that nonsense. It will just do more harm than good, the extra friction causing the condoms to tear.

Make sure to test if you're allergic to latex before using these and any other latex-based products! A good way to do this is to hold it in the bend of your body somewhere, like your elbow or legs. If nothing gets irritated, you should be good to go!

Make sure to throw them away immediately after use and to never never NEVER reuse a condom. That's just disgusting and it won't work.
We always use these if we're using condoms, so I would obviously suggest them to anyone without a latex allergy/sensitive skin!
