World's Annual Best Condom Awards - 15th Anniversary

For the past 15 years the staff at 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 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, 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:

  • Very little innovation in condom technology for the third consecutive year.
  • We had a couple new offerings from LifeStyles that had promising potential. They made the tut. However, manufacturing issues had them lose rank just as fast. We are hopeful they make their way back for next year once the supply issues are fixed.
  • New product offerings from Trojan came with little more than the usual multi-million dollar marketing hype. The same complaints about the product range: "Thick-feeling," "Nasty latex smell," and "Why are twelve pack boxes now ten pack boxes?" being the most prevalent. Shockingly, that makes it the 7th consecutive year the marketing machine at Trojan Condoms did not score well. Most of their products scoring in the bottom half in most metrics.

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.

Vibrating Johnny® - Vibrating Condom   Best Safe Sex Gadget

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!

  • Characteristics - Lasts for about 20-30 minutes. Has a convenient on/off switch for multiple use.
  • She Thinks - Stimulator hits all the right spots with powerful vibrations!
  • He Thinks - It makes the veins in my penis look like Gov. Arnold in 'Conan the Barbarian'!
  • Average Tester Rating - Her: A+, Him: A+
  • Condom Stats - Stretchable - One Size Fits All

Pjur Eros Body Glide Original   Best Personal Lubricants Co-Winner

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.

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.."
