review by: Amy Keyishan
Kimono Micro Thin

"Thirty-eight percent thinner...offers maximum transparency, sensitivity, and feeling."

SHE: It sure felt good. It seemed to be the thinnest condom here
HE: Hello, Kimono. I give this one the ultimate praise because I didn't even notice it.

Extra Sensitive

"An intimate and natural experience that allows you to feel every sensation."

SHE: It felt just like a regular condom. But it must've been thin because he came quicker.
HE: It felt kind of tight, but otherwise okay.

SUPRA

"Transmits body heat for your ultimate sensual pleasure!"

SHE: Polyurethane doesn't stink like latex. But the chance of breakage is higher
HE: This one was slippery and non-smelly, but it seemed a bit thick.

NATURAL LAMB

"Because it is made from natural membrane...it has its own special feeling of sensitivity."

SHE: Animal-skin doesn't prevent STDs. And I was afraid PETA would storm my bedroom.
HE: This was like wearing a Ziploc on my penis - it was really loose. I'll stick with lamb on my dinner plate.

ULTRA SENSITIVE

"The original thin condom...almost like using nothing at all!"

SHE: I'm somehow reassured by a condom made in a conservative state like Alabama.
HE: I'm reaching for these comfy condoms when we run out of Kimonos

DUREX AVANTI

Before polyurethane, creepy lambskin was the only alternative to latex. Though the FDA hasn't given them their ultimate no-disease stamp of approval, these love gloves are as babyproof as latex

SHE: "Omigod, it almost feels like skin! I can feel a lot more heat through it, too."
HE: "Hmmm. That's actually not bad. I'll use these if I have to."

CROWN

God bless the Japanese: They've developed a way to make latex as thin as physics will allow. For couples who want as little between them as possible - that would be all of us - these are clearly an excellent option.

SHE: "OK, I gotta say, these feel pretty good, too."
HE: "It's a tossup between these and the polyurethane ones: You feel a lot of heat and some muscle squeezing. The downside is they're snug, especially at the base."

Inspiral

For a guy with a big, well, head, the bulbous shape fits loosely around the tip while remaining tight at the base.

SHE: "It doesn't feel much different to me, but it makes a weird sloshy sound."
HE: "It's nice to have the extra room, but all the excess material makes my soldier look a little undersized."

Extended Pleasure

These condoms are lubricated with stuff that numbs your soldier to avoid an accidental fire.

SHE: "I do notice that he can go a lot longer."
HE: "This is like being too drunk to finish, but without the joy of a beer buzz."
