Crown Skinless Skin
Well, God Bless, this is the next best thing to nothing at all. The Crown is plain old latex, but it feels as sheer as a silk stocking.

LifeStyles Xtra Pleasure
At .07 millimeters, this is not an especially thin condom, but that's not the point; the lollipop head is. The first sensation is the same numb, in the grip of the rubber maiden feel, suggesting that things won't turn out nearly as well as hoped. But then a reprieve - encouraging reports from on high. The Xtra Pleasure isn't going to bring on the condom revolution, but the clever design does make the most of the all-too-conventional materials. In other words, almost a silk purse out of a sow's ear.

Durex Avanti
The immediate impression: heat. I've been spending so much time in latex of late that this comes as a real surprise, although I can't say that this sends me around the pleasure bend. But all told, this is a good condom, possibly even a great condom, though the Avanti's crankily texture never lets me forget I'm wearing one.
