      • "not very natural"

      I've got mixed feelings about "novelty" condoms, and these are no exception. For starters, these packs contain varying amounts of flavoured (either banana (yellow), nectarine (orange), strawberry (red), and mint (blue) condoms. I'm not a great fan of flavoured condoms, the taste (and smell) is rather unbearable at times, but these aren't too bad. With the exception of the banana which smalls musty and really manky. In contrast, the mint, strawberry, and nectarine actually smell rather pleasant, although a touch sweet and "thick". What I don't like about them is their colour. It's rather, well, unnatural I find to see a blue object when you're expecting a more skin coloured experience, but that's my personal view. Other downpoints include the fact that they do tend to be rather thick, and as a result, not so sensitive for both parties, and also aren't spermicidically lubricated. Another concern for some people not lucky enough to be able to take the pill. All in all, not so great. BUT, and there is always a but, I have found, together with others, that the mint flavour is rather pleasurable owing to the cold, almost numbing effect of the mint flavouring. As a result, events tend to last a bit longer, and it feels different, and quite pleasant really ;). Having thought about them for a while, I can't really understand it. My reasoning being that if you were to chose to stick them in your mouth, they really aren't very tasty. But.....they don't smell as bad as normal condoms can. It's swings and roundabouts really, but a bit yucky on the old taste-buds. Splitting-wise, I've never had one of these break, which is good. However, this is at a cost, they are very thick and not very comfy as a result. Now I haven't bought these for a while (I'm a mature lady now!), but as far as I can remember....they come in packs of 3, 6 and 12. I don'
      ;t buy these as I prefer more natural gimmick-free sex, but they can be fun ice-breakers. The downpoints are that they are expensive, and a little embarrassing to buy!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        INTRODUCTION: Hello and welcome to all my readers. For those who are unaware, I am attempting to both test and then write an opinion on EVERY condom here on Dooyoo. Well, I ran out and so I set myself a new target. I now wish to test and write an opinion on EVERY MASS PRODUCED CONDOM IN THE WORLD! There's a real task for you, and one that I hope may earn me my first ever crown :(. Oh well, I warned my employer I might not get much sleep for a while ;-) Anyway, while I wait for my chemist to recieve his delivery of 7 new types tomorrow, I thought I would write about these ones. So, heres the Durex Select Condoms. THE LOOK: This is a selection of coloured and flavoured condoms, so naturally you will find a few different colours in here. Other than the colour changes they look just like normal condoms though, no real problems and no real extras - although the lack of ribs on the side led to a sullen face on my girlfriend, especially as I bought 24 of them. Sorry love. Out of interest the colours I have thus far found are yellow, red and green. According to secret agent reports there are some orange ones out there, but good look finding them. I gave up on that one a while ago. Ah well. If you find one, write to the following address: I'm a sad person with no life Condom op board Dooyoo do yourself? SN29 3DX THE SMELL: Ooooohhh, that all important ugh factor when you open the packet? Well, for once no. Durex seem to grow on me the more I use them and these are no different. It might be that my nasal column is becoming used to the scent of a Durex, but it doesnt bother me anymore. Sniffing up close isnt even that bad with these ones either, they do actually smell a little of their flavours, although I dont recommend you test this too thoroughly, the strong latex smell is still there. THE TASTE: Well, thanks to the non-spermicidal lubricant, these things a
        ctually taste weird. They do admittedly taste faintly of the flavours they are intended to be (the banana one does have a hint of banana flavour to it etc...). One thing is for sure though, they arent a taste you want repeating on you. The latex is still too strong for me and I had to stop tongueing them in the end. Oh well. My girlfriend says they tasted better than unprotected, but agreed that it isnt really that much difference. Whether you use these condoms is more down to if I warn her prior to orgasm :) The flavours, for those who care are banana, strawberry, mint and the never yet found Orange with the best being the strawberry, by a LONG way :) THE SAFETY: They pass all kite marks, have the usual Durex reliability and are one of the few flavoured brands that are also pronounced safe for use in full sex. This makes them the all round condom when it comes to a single guy out clubbing. If the opportunity for oral arises, you are covered without leaving the chance of full blown sex begging. Superb. THE LIGHT TEST: A little difficult to do because of the colours and the lubricant did make the light shimmer a little off the condom. It didnt make it that difficult though and if there were any holes I am still confident I would have found them. The important point to note with the light test is that you shouldn't hold the condom too close to the light as it will melt due to the heat and this may lead to it being ineffective. Stand a good distance back, hold the condom up into the line of the light and look for any holes in the latex. Dont unravel the condom to do this as it will affect application. APPLICATION: Sliding this condom on was rather easy for me, but then Durex condoms almost always are. The non-spermicidal lubricant didnt affect me and wasnt too slippery so worked rather well, certainly better than their extra safe condom. Just remember to be careful with your nails when you rem
        ove the condom from the wrapper, aswell as when you roll it down the ERECT penis shaft. My mate recently underwent his initiation and came running out of the room crying that it wouldn't go on his limp penis - leaving his poor girlfriend in tears in the room. To avoid this ever happening to anyone else, please remember to ensure the penis is fully erect before putting the condom on. To aid this it may be necessary to rub it a little after taking the condom out of the wrapper, especially if you have trouble getting it out. THE MALE SENSATION: Well, it is oral sex at the end of the day and these condoms dont act as too much of a sensation barrier. They are thinner than other flavoured condoms we have tried and that only serves to the good. My girlfriend prefers the taste of these to other brands, notably Jif ones so it cant all be bad. It did lead to an orgasm orally and then again when used in full sex. It comes highly recommended from me, although for full sex I still recommend the ribbed condoms, or some of the amazing studded rough rider condoms. THE FEMALE SENSATION: My girlfriend announced that as she was giving the oral sex it wasnt really a sensation, more of a 'how to limit the disgustingness of the situation'. Fair comment. Anyway, she said that the taste was better than going without a condom but she doesnt mind either as they are still nowhere near to taking the horrible taste away at the end. It lasts too, so be warned. During the actual intercourse she said they felt like any normal condom, and didnt turn her insides blue like a certain other brand we tried!!!! The condoms only seem to alter the womens pleasure if they are ribbed or normal, so expect little difference in here. THE PRICE: These dont come too cheap, although they are hardly sky high compared to some other condoms. As they are 'fun' condoms, you wont find them at your local giveaway clinic but they are ea
        sily worth the money if its the only thing that will get you oral sex guys. At £8.99 for 12 (although I only paid £13.99 for 24!), I'd say reasonable and worth the money if you want a stash or you are a single bloke. For better pleasure for the woman though, try rough rider condoms (if you can find them) or Durex ribbed, you'l be much more appreciated by them if you do. And you know what they say, its gossip that gets you laid ;-) OVERALL: An excellent little set of condoms that is well worth a look by anyone. Especially useful for their multi-tasking abilities, they are capable of serving in an oral or full intercourse situation, double bonus points then :)

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          It’s totally fascinating listening to the reasons men come up with for not wanting to using a condom. “It‘ll spoil the feeling“, “I’m allergic to them”. Oh please.... guys, if you are man enough to have sex, you should be man enough to take, or at least share, the responsibility that goes with it. Then of course you have my favourite excuse.... “I can’t use them. They’re too small for me”. Yeah right! Having seen comedians on TV stretching condoms to fit over the head (on their shoulders), you’re trying to tell me you can’t find one that’ll cover a few inches??? If that is the best excuse you can come up with then the only problem with size is that overly large ego! To go with the large ego, you may want to add a big dose of celibacy because you may not find too many ladies willing to take a chance on having a sexual relationship with you without a condom. But if you do manage to find someone who will, then you may like to add to your ego a big dose of disease, or a life long dose of parenthood...... just something to ponder on. Right, so you need condoms huh? You’re going to buy them, and if you are lucky enough, you get to use them too. So you want to choose the right ones, just in case. The Durex range is a good place to start. Tried and tested by millions of people world wide, or so they say. Well if they‘re good enough for the world and it‘s partner, they‘re good enough for you. But, it’s not quite that simple. Compare choosing a condom to buying a car. You’ve decided on the make you want, but what model are you after? What expectations do you have, how much mileage do you want out of it? What’s more important to you, a safe and comfortable journey, or a fast and furious ride? If you are a boy racer, then consider Durex Select. Life in the fast lane as far as condoms are concerned, t
          he funky red model has a selection of further choices. The traditional style (pack of 3) offers you an interior colour scheme of banana yellow, strawberry red, or minty green. Hypo-allergenic natural rubber latex, with a non-spermicidal lubricant finish. Wow, can’t get much better than that. (Well, if you can, there is a comment section.) Fancy a test drive? You need to remember a couple of things. Get the engine warmed up and ticking over. Take firm hold of the gear stick and ensure you have total control. Slip into first, and move off at your own pace. Keep an eye on your speed though, sudden acceleration could cause you to lose control and flood the engine, and there is a small danger of blow outs. So, you reached your destination. The test drive is over. Get out of the vehicle carefully, and make sure you have all your belongings with you. Hopefully, you will have had a safe and satisfying journey, but if you had any doubts about your trip, seek advice. You are responsible for yourself and your passengers, take whatever insurances you can to avoid accidents occurring. All well and good trying to spare the blushes, but I should really re-cap in a slightly more adult nature. Durex Select offer a pretty reliable and fun method of contraception. Used correctly, they provide a 98% effective form of birth control, with the added bonus of protecting from sexually transmitted disease too. I have been informed they are comfortable to wear and only minimally reduce sensation. From a female point of view, they’re fine. Lubricated with a non-spermicidal lubricant, the smell (and taste) is pleasant and I have never suffered any irritation from the use of them. You can buy Durex Select in packs of 3, 6 or 12. There are actually 4 flavours in the select range......the afore mentioned banana, strawberry, and mint, and also orange. But sadly, despite my quite extensive road testing of this product I have yet to find an
          orange one in a pack. Price varies greatly between different retailers. The Durex website (www.durex.com) sells them at £5.69 for a pack of 6, although you will pay p&p of £1.50 on orders less than £10.00. Pharmacy2U (www.pharmacy2u.co.uk) sells the 6 pack for £3.65 but you will be charged p&p at £2.50 unless your order is valued at £30+ or includes a prescription item. I usually get mine when I’m doing the weekly shopping, and again supermarket prices vary a fair bit, but expect to pay around £9 for 12. Condoms should be placed on the erect penis before any contact is made with the vaginal area. Squeeze the teat end of the condom to prevent air getting trapped in it, and unroll fully to the base of the penis to ensure the condom is firmly in place. (Take care of sharp objects such as fingernails and rings, condoms can quite easily get torn.) Ensure the condom remains firmly on during sex, if you feel it slipping roll it back into place. If the condom does come off, or split during sex, then withdraw the penis immediately, but don’t pretend nothing has happened. If it’s your sole method of protection, visit your doctor who will be able to offer advice and give appropriate treatment to prevent pregnancy. (Do this without delay.) After sex, withdraw the erect penis ensuring the condom stays in place until fully clear of the vaginal area. Remove the condom and dispose of it safely. (Wrapped in a tissue and placed in the bin is recommended, not flushed down the toilet.) Hopefully, if you follow these guidelines you will have a happy and worry free sex life, that is of course if you have a partner who is willing to take that test drive with you. I do admit that condoms are somewhat an acquired taste. In the case of Durex Select, my favourite acquired taste is the strawberry one. What else can I say? Enjoy........

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Condoms really are funny things, they always make me snigger, But remember you might need to use one of these BEFORE you pull the trigger. They protect against getting pregnant By stopping your little sperm From swimming up that dark canal And making your partner squirm! They also protect against STD's And before you begin to scoff Just remember that without one Your poor little willy might fall off! Now Durex Select condoms Come in variety packs of three, One of them is coloured So your willy's as pretty as can be Another one is flavoured Which is not much use to me But I'm told that women like it Tastes better than rubber you see The final choice is a ribbed one To give your partner extra pleasure It aids her satisfaction If you're not quite up to the measure! Remember when using condoms To follow this useful advice That well you?ll be protected And sex will be safe and nice Make sure you put the condom on Before your willy nears the 'pink' 'Cos little sperm are pesky beasts And might sneak out before you think Be careful to squeeze out excess air From the condoms little teat If it burst and your little sperm escape Your hearts going to miss a beat! Make sure it stays on as you play If it rolls up, roll it back And if it comes off completely Get a new one out of the pack. And when you get to the finish Don't just stay there as you glow Hold the condom at the base And pull the little boy out slow Now take the condom off your knob and tie the end up in a knot And I mean the condom not your willy Otherwise it will hurt a lot!!! Durex Select condoms Can be bought in lots of shops They're around £3.00 a packet So they will not be a flop That's around £1.00
            a condom Which is cheap for piece of mind They might interrupt your pleasure But it's really not a bind Just think what might just happen If you forget to put one on You could end up with a dodgy disease Or an unexpected son!!!

              Disadvantages

              There's so many brands of condom on the market that I think all of us can get confused about what the difference between them actually is. Well, maybe there are subtle differences between them but let's just cut to the chase - Who cares?? When we're feeling amorous and want a good heavy session then all we really want a condom for is to protect ourselves. This condom is simple and effective - basically it does the trick. This brand is probably the most widely available and is my choice of condom. Easy to use, no slipping during the act - and everything else you could want from a condom. I don't need to say anything else about it. Go out and get some - use 'em and you'll see. It does exactly what it says on the packet and lets face it do you want it to do anything else?

              I just love this jonny. The pack of three select is brilliant. It comes with a coloured a flavoured and a ribbed, perfect for anytime. If I had to only use one type of jazz bag it would be these. The fit is good even for those larger than average people and tight enough for the less endowed. I have never had one break and I hope I never will, with these I feel safe in the knowledge that my member is safe. These are a brilliant, go by some and get some sex!

              I am a regular buyer of this jonny. The reason why is because it fits nicely on the pea pod. It is lose enough for girls to put on with ease, and tight enough not to slide during sex. There is no frills with this condom which is fine for doing nothing special to impress the ladies. The colour is normal so no surprises and when finished with it comes of fine. The jonny makes you feel pretected and safe from all thoses nasty germs and virus, and for little money it is worth this.
