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.

Pasante Unique Latex Free Condoms Review | Pleasure Panel

Price:
£3.99
Being in a long term committed relationship (now married!) condoms were never our main form of contraception. To be honest we only really use them if I feel we need extra protection should my pill be unreliable. We always use Pasante feel "extra thin" condoms as we both agree that they are the most comfortable ones around.

By Paul For years, I thought 57mm wide condoms were the largest ones available. After all, that's what was stated on the box I purchased at my local store. My sex life changed when I discovered the mysize brand which made condoms up to 69mm wide. I tried those, and never went back.

By Chili / CrimeScene I was a bit dubious about trying these condoms at first in case they didn't fit my partner. I didn't want them to come off inside me during intercourse. Therefore, I think we (my partner and I) were both pleasantly surprised when he unrolled one and it fit him rather well.

Mates Natural Condoms from Freedoms Shop – Guest Review

By Just Indecerous I’ll be honest here I am not a big fan of condoms and the guys and girls that I know will all tell you that there is a clear difference in sensation between using them and not. Until recently I was in a non-monogamous relationship for 8 years and condoms were only a feature if we were doing anal or I was playing with another person with either my own junk or any of the sex toys from my collection. As such I always stayed with the tried and true Durex condoms for no other reason than it’s the largest company and the one most people know.

By Lightweight Toucan These Beppy condoms are the strangest yet best I've ever used. I have no other word to describe the feel, both in my hands and inside me, other than soft. It was silky soft. It wasn't just the good quality lube on it either.

Firstly, I loved the packaging. Glowing green wording on the black packet, and a see through panel on the back, allowing the condom to get the light it needs in order to glow.

Reviews: Freedoms Shop 24 x Condoms Passion Pouch (Black Regular Joe & Cream Tickler...

10 out of 10
Price:
£5.00
When you buy one of Freedoms Shop's Passion Pouches you're certainly getting multiple bang for your buck. 24 bangs, actually, for just £5. Each 'Passion Pouch', a satin drawstring bag with the Freedoms Shop branded tag, contains 24 sealed condoms from reliable, trusted brands. You can choose from a bag of plain condoms (Regular Joe pouch) or stimulating ones (Tickler pouch) in a black or cream pouch, depending on your condom requirements or desires. That means there are four types of Passion Pouch to select from altogether. Freedoms Shop sent me a black Regular Joe Passion Pouch and a cream Tickler Passion Pouch, free of charge, to test and review. The pouch I received that I assume falls into the cream category is actually white, not that I'm too bothered about the colour. My Black 'Regular Joe' Passion Pouch contains 24 Skins condoms, sealed and well before their expiry date, in bright blue foil wrappers. The Cream (white) Tickler Passion Pouch contains 24 mixed stimulating condoms by Pasanté. There are 12 Ribs & Dots, 6 Cooling and 6 Warming types. They are also wrapped in foil packets and well before expiry date.

Pasante Flavoured Dental Dams Review | Pleasure Panel

Price:
£23.65
Brand:
Pasante
Materials:
Latex
By Live & Let Love I'm giving these dams a 7 out of 10 because, as far as dams go, I'm sure they're pretty good. It's the fact that they're dams that was the issue for us. We're pretty new using dental dams and find them quite awkward. First Mr took a turn using the Strawberry Crush on me. He found the thickness not too bad (again, as dams go). I could feel quite a bit through the dam, but not as good as tongue on skin. He didn't find the dam overpowering, but he did say he kept flashing back to his dentist's office where they use scented/flavoured latex gloves. Not very sexy. ;) His final word was he'd rather not give oral than use dams all the time (and he LOVES giving oral.)

Ultimate Cheeky Weekender Review

10 out of 10
I was sent the trio of Cheeky Weekender packs directly from Give Pleasure Products, the same people behind the wonderful Give Lube and Cheeky Wash and Expandable Wipes. These sex essentials were all sent to me free of charge in exchange for a fair and honest review of each.

Love Affair Cheeky Weekender Review

10 out of 10
For the mid-range kit I was pleasantly surprised that you get two vibrating items, the bullet vibe and the vibrating cock ring. The expandable wipes seem to be a little superfluous to this kit, with the absence of the wash with it - but if the wash was included the contents value would be too high for the sale price. The condoms are from tried and tested brands, such as EXS, Mates and Billy Boy and they are all well within the expiry dates and as standard. I've reviewed the two types of Give Lube in the past as well as the expandable wipes, so please click through the links on the list to read about them in more detail.

Cheeky Weekender Sex Essentials Pack Review

10 out of 10
As you can see you get a great value little sex kit for your money. It’s pretty much all the essentials you’d need for a naughty weekend away, keeping in your handbag or travel bag, glove compartment, work drawer or just next to the bed as your emergency backup for your usual supplies. I’ve reviewed the lubeshots, Cheeky Wash and wipes separately, so please click through the links above to find out more info about each item.

By McBitchyTits / big kinky bbw We decided not to read the packaging or anything before trying these as we might concentrate on those aspects we just wanted to feel. At first glance the packaging is a standard box with stunning pearlised/iridescent green as the main colour. Packaging was easy enough to open and it was a ten pack so plenty of back up, the usual foil packets and they were in strips of two so again easy to use in the heat of the moment although myself I prefer single foils not strips but this is just personal preference.

Skins Assorted and Bubblegum Flavoured Condoms Review

Price:
£6.99
Materials:
Latex
I hadn't used a flavoured condom in quite some time, and since my younger days I'd always liked the bubblegum flavour sweets, as well as your good old fashioned bubblegum itself, of course. No chewing on these babies though... especially not when they're pulled tightly over his erect cock.

Skins Ultra Thin Condoms – Pleasure Panel Review

Price:

Materials:

By Kelly C The condoms were really small and tight. They only went half way down my Husband's penis and they were ridiculously tight (my Husband is above average in that department but still). Despite this we decided to give them a go, but the condom dried out quickly and also dried me out and it felt like it was going to make me red raw so we stopped using them.

By Barbahella ...they’re well lubed, smell decidedly “unrubbery”, and for the person being penetrated, feel fantastic. They’re also a breeze to tear open, which as we all know, is fairly important.
