Readers Respond: What Are Your Favorite Condom Types or Condom Brands?

Responses: 24


Updated July 17, 2009

From the article: Condom Types
Not all condoms are created equally, condom preferences vary strongly from person to person. Some people prefer latex condoms while others swear by polyurethane condoms. Some condom types are thicker or thinner. They can be studded, fruity, glow in the dark, and come in a rainbow of colors. There are flavored condoms, female condoms and pleasure shaped condoms.

People stay true to their favorites and may get angry if their partner buys the wrong ones. What condom types or condom brands do you like and why? Feel free to also share a funny story about buying condoms.

Trojan Bareskin

Love these! Bought them by mistake once, but these are our go-to brand now. Really can't recommend them enough. So thin! Almost as good as not wearing them. (Almost -- if only I weren't 35, and hated the side effects of all hormones!). I don't want to take the risk of having any of the side effects of trying other hormonal methods and the IUD is not the right fit for me. Since I'm not sure if I'll have babies or not, it's johnnies for us!

XxL condoms

My girlfriend says my penis is too long for non latex condoms. I break almost every condom on the market, so I need the XXL!

Sensis - All the Way!

These condoms are the bomb! They have these little tabs that make sure that you put it on the right way (no more trying to figure out if the condom is inside out or not). Plus, it makes it much easier to put on a condom in the dark since you just need to feel for those tabs, pull it up and you are ready to go!

Glowing :D

I used this on my girlfriend's birthday and she was shocked when it glowed and made her..... Feel better (and in the mood) faster because she was more focused on the glowing. Haha!

Life Styles Skyns

My girlfriend and I love using the these condoms. For me and her it feels like nothing is there. I give it 5 stars because it has flexible, smooth, and comforting sensation inside. I really love this brand.

Flavored condoms are best

My boyfriend always try new flavors so my excitment doubles!

the french ticklers

i love the way they feel in and it also feels good so i have been told it has a great feeling when in goes in

SKYN Condoms

I recently tried the new Lifestyles SKYN Condoms. I love the feel of them, however, my partner requires a larger condom so I wish the condom companies would get a clue that all men are not created equal when it comes to the non-latex condoms! They make them in larger sizes for latex, why not for non-latex?

Lubricated Trojan-Enz

I'm not in love with these for any special reason other than the price. I can pick them up at Costco -- $10 for 40 condoms. The little bit of lubrication is nice for those quickies, too, and it's not too much at other times when I already have enough natural lubrication going.


Apple tastes the best :) and my boy friend looooves the edible ones :D

Non-latex condoms - Skyn Condoms

I feel good and more secure when I use non-latex condoms. My partner was not happy when I requested him to use them (Skyn condoms) because they are more expensive. But, I love how they feel and Skyn condoms allow for a lot of sensitivity. Non-latex condoms are always a lot softer, so they feel better during love making!

Tried and true

call me old-fashioned, but i just rely on the typical latex condom. Honestly, I have tried most of the condoms on the market and have not noticed a real difference, and neither has my girlfriend.
—Guest Paul


I love the french tickler... mmmm yeah!This is awesome!!

Trojan Magnum Twister

Without a doubt - the Trojan Magnum Twister. I am surprised nobody has mentioned this yet. You have to try it! It fits kinda looser and has this weird-looking wide tip. I’m not sure how this thing works, but it allows for so much more friction that other condoms. I can really feel it (where it counts) and my girlfriend says that it feels good for her too.
