What do you call the guy who’s always there for you, who always watches your back, and who makes a great wingman? No, not Larry from accounting. We’re talking about a real friend: the condom, raincoat, rubber, dick sock, love glove . . . Whatever he goes by, night after night of good, bad, or mind-blowing sex, your buddy the prophylactic goes to bat for you, with an average of 98% effectiveness at preventing pregnancy and, unlike other contraceptives, protection against STDs and HIV/AIDS. That’s a good friend. But not every condom is right for every situation, so before you slide one on, make sure you pick the right one . . .
For the couple that can’t get enough
Try Durex Pleasure Max Tingling.
Ribbed and studded with a spearmint tingling lubricant. Think Tiger Balm meets Vicks—but in a good way.
For reigniting the fire
Try Trojan Vibrating Ring and Condom.
Battery operated and designed to get both of you off—for up to twenty minutes. Note: Once it’s out of juice, there’s no plugging it back in. Plan for alternative pleasuring.
For when your lady hasn’t “finished” in a long while
Try Trojan Her Pleasure.
With ridges in place especially for her, she’ll be convulsing with pleasure once you’re done with her.
For the anaconda
Try Kimono Micro Thin Large
The name may sound oxymoronic—“thin large”—but this is a condom for well-endowed guys who don’t want to lose circulation but still want plenty of sensation.
For the less blessed
Try Lifestyle Snugger Fit
When condom slippage is an issue, this one stays on tight—but still offers room at the head for added friction
For a G spot orgasm that will have her climbing up the walls.
This rubber’s unique twisted shape increases friction for explosive orgasms. When has she ever begged for you to put on a condom?
For the sensitive user
Try Durex Avanti Super Thin
If you are allergic to latex or like to use massage oil in foreplay, this polyurethane condom is a great alternative.
For the one-night stand
The booty-call condom that’s thin enough to feel every pulse of your lady. The strongest, most reliable cap for the all-nighter man.
