For the past 15 years the staff at CondomDepot.com works diligently to offer our visitors the world's only comprehensive list of condom metrics.
Our mission has always been to create condom awareness and promote the use of condoms as a birth control method and the most reliable method to reduce the risk of being infected by the many number of Sexually Transmitted Infections. Over the last 15 years we have learned a bunch.
One fact that stands out above and beyond any other: condom use is most effected by the feel or comfort the condoms offers both partners. Interestingly, a condom's reliability takes second place to actual feel.
We are not letting the cat out of the bag with that statement however there is one problem. Where do you find that information? And is the information you do find TRULY unbiased? Or is it some advertorial pushing a brand? God knows, you can never seem to find actual product reviews that are legitimate on Google anymore.
That's where we come in. This year marks the 15th consecutive year that CondomDepot.com has invested the time, effort and money into discovering what our customers are looking for. What they like. What they try. What they re-order. What their partner likes. What they hate. Our business is based on educating our customers which in turn drives our business. Do not worry, CondomDepot.com is a Full Line Master Distributor. Meaning, we carry EVERY Condom Brand that matters. Therefore the results are fair and accurate.
After all the work, I'm excited to announce the results from our 15th Annual Condom Awards! Here are some key points from this year's sampling:
This year our "Official Condom Tester Pool" consisted of regular customers that were asked to sample forty of our best condoms. The forty condoms they received were decided by combining our top selling condoms with the ratings we receive from our customers via online reviews and adding a couple of new product offerings to that list. Our official condom tester team was made up of folks from a varied segment of the population including, Florida swingers clubs, students from various universities and one hundred couples of various ages and sexual orientations. This year our total testing pool consisted of 250 of which more than half completed the entire reviewing process.
15th Year in A Row! Are These The Best Condoms Ever? You Betcha!
Year after year, our customers constantly rate them at the head of the class. In terms of sensitivity, reliability and comfort the Crown Skinless Skin is unmatched. Most famous for their use in adult movies, Skinless Skin are Pink Tinted and famous for being ridiculously thin yet super strong. They are manufactured in Japan by Okamoto (who also manufactures fellow World's Best Winner Beyond Seven). He will love them because their super thin design give them a "Bareback" feeling. She will love them because they are super thin and help her feel closer to her lover. Bottom Line: It feels like you have nothing on.
Rated Best Condom by Consumer Reports. 10 Time Winner
New addition to the World's Best Condom List. The Extra Sensitive from Durex is The Thinnest Latex condom in the Durex product line. Super sensitivity, a good deal of lubricant and also with a slightly wider head. All of these characteristics make this condom Great. This condom was also rated most dependable condom by the Consumer Reports team in its last round of testing in 2005.
10 Time Winner
Sheerlon Latex is Super Sensitive for Average Sized Men
5 Time Winner
Super Sensitivity makes you second guess whether or not you're wearing a condom.
What more could be said? Kimono, the Condom from Japan, is one of the most sensitive condoms in the world. When dealing with such a thin latex condom, friction is your worst enemy. So to make these even more incredible, we recommend using a fine personal lubricant such as any of the WET brand products.
2 Time Winner
An Iron Grip that won't slip!
This first time winner has been highly praised by our customers. It get's its 'Iron Grip' name by having a smaller width for a snugger fitting condom. A customer from Boston raves, "Finally! A Condom that fits and wont slip! The snuggest fit I have found with the exception of some custom fit condom I used to be able to find online."
Finally a larger sized condom that is sensitive! 4 Time Winner!
With so few choices on the market for the well endowed male, it's a relief to finally find a sensitive condom that is Large in width and Length. American Latex has filled the void with its newest offering, Trustex Extra Large. This great condom is not only larger than your average sized condom, but unlike it's larger peers it actually feels good. If your tired of wearing a Large Condom that feel more like a heavy rain coat, this new product will surely be your new best friend.
The LifeStyles KYNG Gold condoms offer serious protection while remaining thin enough to feel your partner.
These latex condoms have a low latex odor, a reservoir tip and have a high quality water-based lubricant. Although they are around average in size, their extreme stretchiness allows them to comfortably fit on bigger men.
For an enjoyable experience, while remaining safe, go for the Lifestyles KYNG Gold!
Ribbed for her - Super sensitivity for him! 6 Time Winner!
Hand it to the Japanese! These condoms feature hundreds of tiny raised bumps along the shaft design to rock her world. VERY SIMILAR TO THE INTENSE SENSATION, EXCEPT THIS IS A SNUG FIT CONDOM. Made from an advanced Latex called Sherlon, they are much thinner than standard latex condoms without sacrificing strength. The thinner latex also helps her feel the heat and friction that is mostly lost from thicker latex condoms. This condom is an instant classic.
Super Thyn Bareback sensation while maintaining its structural integrity! 2nd Time Winner!
Lifestyles has listened to what consumers are wanting. Every year it seems that our data gathering is pointing to one thing... People have less a problem with wearing a condom when it doesn't feel like they are wearing a condom. Lifestyles THYN are exactly what the Folks asked for and they deliver. Both men and woman scored it very highly on sensitivity and it's slightly larger than the Crown and Beyond Seven products which was also a positive scoring characteristic.
Clitoral Stimulation For Her & Rock Hard Erections For Him 2nd Time Winner!
We have seen many of these gadgets come to our office over the years but never have we been so impressed with the Vibrating Johnny! As one reviewer submitted, "Fantastic! my wife absolutely loved this product! The stimulator was perfectly positioned and gave her multiple orgasms! 4 Thumbs Up!"
Here's the skinny. The Vibrating Johnny works in two different ways. For him, it acts as an erection enhancer. It keeps blood flow in the penis which makes for a longer, more "Ripped" looking Penis. For Her, it features a Textured Vibrating Clitoral Stimulator. When he wears it, the stimulator comes into contact with her clitoris which gives her incredible pleasure. We like it much better than similar products because it lasts longer, seems more powerful and it stays on because it has a bumpy ring. The ring's bumps keep it in place during wild sex. Ride'em Cowgirl, Yeah!
This World Class Lubricant, Stays Wet Longer than any other Water Based Lube!
We love Wet Personal Lubricants. They are colorless, odorless, and have no chemical like taste.. WET Original's long-lasting super-slick formula contains soothing pure Vitamin E and Aloe Vera, and is water-based, gentle, odorless, colorless, greaseless, non-staining, and will not harm latex.
WET Original is the co-winner of our World's Best Lube Award because unlike other Water based Lubes, WET Original - Stays Wet Longer. Meaning it takes longer before it begins to get sticky feeling. These are also fantastic for anal intercourse because they contain no spermicide and are so incredibly slippery!
Co-Winner of the World's Best Lubricant! This makes the list as our favorite lube. Best Silicone Based Lubricant
Unlike any other lube in that it doesn't dry up and in never gets sticky feeling. Being that it's silicone based, it's safe for use in and out of water and condom safe.. Although this lube is more expensive than Water Based Lubricants, it has a better value because you only need a drop or two at the most. This silicone lube is taste-free, fragrance free, and will NEVER get sticky feeling or dry out. Its condom safe but may interact with silicone toys. WATCH OUT FOR GENERIC BODYGLIDE. There are many Lower Quality BodyGlides on the market. If the label does not have the "Pjur" Name on it, it is not Original Eros.
Mike & Donna in Florida say; "This is the best lubricant we have ever used. We have not found any other that come close to its ability to maintain lubricity, while being very smooth and silky.."
