Condom Reviews

Practising safe sex and safe sex toy use is extremely important considering the increase in STI diagnosis and antibiotic resistant sexually transmitted infections. However, choosing the right style, brand and texture of condoms is something that can take some time to get right. With a little help from my team of community reviewers, I have a huge selection of condom reviews that provide information about many different styles of condom.

Many couples admit to sticking to the same brand of condom religiously, but sometimes it is nice to switch things up and try something new. My honest condom reviews explore all the big condom brands such as Durex, Trojan, Pasante, Mates, Skin, Royal and Playboy so you can compare each different type of condom and explore the best user experience.

My condom reviews also look at other important features such as the effectiveness of delay condoms, taste of flavoured condoms, performance of non-latex condoms and the sensation of extra thin condoms. For those who are looking for a particular type of condom such as a texture or brand, use the search option at the top of the page to go straight to the information that you need.

All my reviews contain photographs of the condoms and will answer lots of the questions that you have about the product. However, if there is a product that you can’t find within my condom reviews, get in touch with me via email and I will try to source and review it for you.

By Cheshire Kink Here is my review of the Pasante Ribbed Condoms which also included 3 flavoured condoms. So condoms - love them or hate them, mostly we all need to use them at some point in our lives. I (Mr) have had the snip and so we don’t need to use them, however as we are a swinging couple we use them when we play with others.

By Carnal Queen I think we’ve probably all just about recovered from the over-indulgences of Christmas, but you might still be at the stage where you’d wanna punch me for flaunting chocolate selection boxes in your face. I know, I get it, we’re in a new year, resolutions and all that jazz! Have no fear though, this is a totally different kind of sweet selection box made by Durex for Valentine’s Day, and it’s aptly named the Durex Sexlection Box...

By Little Switch Bitch It’s usually a given to receive chocolates on Valentine’s Day, so I’m guessing that what Durex got their packaging idea from. Other than Durex splashed across the front of it, the box is really pretty and shall be recycled to store cock rings/nipple clamps and other little fiddly bits, as it’s got a strong magnetic lid. Loads of thought has gone into the box and it’s kinda sad that I love it more than the contents.

By Scandarella Confession time: I’m a 35 year old woman and had never used a Durex product in my life before this month. The very word ‘Durex’ has always reminded me of two things: the dirty jokes my older cousins would tell when I was a kid – none of which I understood – and the realisation in my early teens of exactly what those jokes meant, and therefore what those Durex things in my parent’s bedroom were actually for.

By Lightweight Toucan The Festive Tickler Passion Pouch (24 Stimulating Condoms) from Freedoms Shop is another great stocking filler or small add on gift to fill those gift gaps. A red pouch with a drawstring, you can attach a name tag onto the string after tying the bag up, making it personalised. This bag does not have any identifying marks to give a clue to its contents, so it's a great adult gift for a partner or even a friend.

By 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.
