Our staff of Safer Sexperts puts the Beyond Seven Condom to the test! Here is where the Beyond Seven Condom Ranks!
The Beyond Seven Sheerlon condom is 7.87” long x 1.87” wide or 200.03mm long x 47.63mm wide. As I recently learned firsthand, Sheerlon is a special latex-based material that not only feels exceptionally soft and skin-like, it is also very strong, stretchy and durable.
Right off the bat, the textural quality of Sheerlon really reminded me of cyberskin, which is a synthetic material that’s used frequently in sex toys, like the Soft Touch Lilac Vibrator, due to its resemblance to human skin. These extremely soft and smooth characteristics are a delight for the cutaneous senses and offered a sense of suppleness to my sexual experiences.
Come to think of it, the material feels very similar to the Crown Skinless Skin, the main difference being that the Beyond Seven Sheerlon is shorter and thinner than its Crown condom counterpart. But, like the Crown, this condom can really stretch, so even if you are a little larger than these measurements, but less than the Crown (8” x 1.94”), this condom may still work for you.
And, even though the Beyond Seven has a water-based lube, which usually isn’t my preferred lubricant, the way it interacts with the Sheerlon is really something special. The combo creates a slippery yet soft sensation. Overall, the Sheerlon material and the lube they use with it makes wearing a condom feel much more natural than it does with other condoms. But, adding some additional water-based lube, like WET Ecstasy, will increase the enjoyment even further.
This condom has a straight fit (non-contoured) and a reservoir tip. Even though the condom itself is not anatomically shaped, it does easily and readily conform to the shape of penis, without having wrinkles or sags. I think this conforming quality really enhanced the pleasure and the feeling of closeness, because there wasn’t a constant reminder of it via crinkly noises and bunches of extra latex.
Yes, the shape of theBeyond Seven Sheerlon is pretty standard without a lot of extraneous features. However, the somewhat opaque light blue color makes this condom unique and adds a visual appeal to the otherwise standard appearance. Ordinarily, I lean towards more translucent condoms, but since this one is colored, it didn’t bother me.
Other than the softness and color, I was also struck by how thin this condom is, and yet, it didn’t break during use. I admit, I was half expecting it to, based on other bad experiences with lesser quality thin condoms. But thankfully, despite its thinness, the Beyond Seven held true to its claims of unmatched durability. I’m genuinely impressed.
The Beyond Seven's mega-touchability and its ability to conform to any shape make this condom a keeper. Add its incredible softness, thinness and durability to these qualities and I really can’t ask for anything more.

These are made by the same company that makes Crown Skinless Skin condoms. I've used both and I think they're the same with color being the only difference. By far, these are the best condoms out there. What's funny is these and Crown are smaller than other brands yet the sensation is vastly improved. The partners I've tried this with seem to like them as well. The only downside is they could stand some more lube. Don't let the smaller size fool you, these things are very pliable and stretch easily. I'll keep buying these or Crown.

I've tried many condoms over the years and these are by far the best. The Sheerlon material feels great -almost like no condom. Even though they are smaller they fit better than Magnums or Magnum XLs. Unlike other condoms, you can feel every contour and you know when you are "in" by sensation and not by pressure alone. Best condom ever
