Freedoms Shop Black Tickler Passion Pouch
By Pleasure Panel reviewer Lovebirds_x
So to my review of the Freedoms Shop Black Tickler Passion Pouch (containing x24 Pasante Stimulating Condoms). I love the silky pouch these condoms are presented in, it feels a lot more sensual and somehow sophisticated pulling a satin pouch from your bedside drawer. Plus it’s just fun pulling a pretty rainbow of condoms out of a little black pouch. The pouch is good enough quality to be repurposed or indeed refilled once the included condoms run out.
I have to say though, for the sake of safe sex and indeed safe postage there is a part of me that misses the protection of an outer box, especially considering the foil got quite crumpled on a few of our condoms. None of them ripped/tore/were in any way compromised, but I can’t help but feel paranoid! We don’t use condoms as our main form of birth control, if we did I am not sure I’d be so comfortable with the Freedoms Shop Black Tickler Passion Pouch packaging.
Each condom in the Freedoms Shop Black Tickler Passion Pouch provides its own unique sensation, I have to say we loved them all!
The cooling condom has a both a strong cooling sensation and a milder tingle along with ribs running the length of the shaft. My partner felt more of the tingle on his genitals than I did on mine, especially on the head of the penis, so while it felt awesome for him I would say this is an ‘individual results may vary’ type of stimulation.
To me it felt very similar to using a chilled glass dildo, which is quite an exquisite sensation to me, except rather than warming up as you go on it remains cool inside you. We were both surprised at just how long the cool sensation remained, we were still feeling it after half an hour before we stopped counting.
The lube on this condom was the longest lasting of the three, which you’d think would mean it lends itself to being good for anal. For me, the cooling sensation is way too much anally. Butt freeze is a thing and it sends aches and shooting pains to places you didn’t know existed. Again, glass toys; if you like cold glass in your bottom, you’ll enjoy this condom (I don’t).
A slightly unexpected but major plus to the cooling condom is it didn’t feel like he was wearing one at all, the cooling sensation overrides the feeling of having a condom on/inside you. It also overrides any sensation you would get from the ribs, unfortunately, but we didn’t find we missed it. The downside is the smell, this one definitely had a bit of a funky medicinal type smell to it.
The warming condom was a bit of a let down by comparison. Neither of us felt any warming sensation whatsoever, although body heat does at least transfer well through the condom.
The warming condom felt very dry and almost powdery to the touch. I wouldn’t use this one without additional lubricant, it’s quite uncomfortable.
Despite not feeling warming, the ribs did feel more pronounced on this one than on the cooling one. It would be good for someone looking for a nice ribbed condom. For me the ribs quickly became painful without additional lube, so this isn’t a condom I’d go out of my way to get again.
The ribs and dots condom seems like the milder, everyday choice from this pouch. This was the first stimulating condom we tried from Pasante, and it’s still a firm favourite.
We have found that I (the female partner) get more stimulation from the dots on the shaft, while my partner gets more stimulation from the ribs at the top of the condom, so it’s good for giving both partners pleasure. The dots give that almost tickly type of stimulation around the entrance to the vagina as he moves in and out, while the ribs massage his head.
I find these condoms best for short and sweet sessions as they dry out quite quickly, which like with the warming condom this intensifies the ribbing to the point where it starts feeling sore. With so much stimulation on his head, it’s thankfully never a problem keeping the sessions short!
None of the condoms produced any irritation or reactions in either of us and all of them were a comfortable fit.
Overall, the Freedoms Shop Black Tickler Passion Pouch is quite a fun thing to experiment with. The variety of sensations is great and both the cooling and ribs and dots condoms perform very well. I would give each of them a 10/10. The warming condom didn’t feel warming to us, but it was still an okay condom to use. I would give it a 5/10 for having a place in the bedroom, even if that place is not as a warming condom.
The Freedoms Shop Black Tickler Passion Pouch is sophisticated and adds a touch of class, while the contents and included instructions are fun and colourful. This would be great as a condom ‘starter pack’ for those who would like to experiment with what stimulating condoms have to offer. I would give it an overall 9/10, because even though the warming condoms weren’t for us I still think this is an excellent way to try out three types of condoms and I am fully aware that others may find the warming ones live up to their name.
