This review is about flavoured condoms so expect there to be some mention of sexual activities. I will try to keep it as light as possible but if you're easily offended then you may not want to read on Flavoured condoms come in different varieties: different brand variety and different flavour variety. Personally, I have only ever had a couple of encounters with flavoured condoms so I will keep this review a little more basic and general. Why use a flavoured condom? The biggest piece of advice I could give is never to use a flavoured condom for sex, they're not really designed for it and you may regret it afterwards. Flavoured condom are more for preventing STI's during oral sex so most won't have the spermicide and lubricant for safety during sex. My first ever boyfriend and I once, in our youthful idiocy, used a flavoured condom for normal sex. It did work as a normal condom but the unfortunate thing in the whole experience was the flavour of choice (as it was the only condom to hand and first time love and all that) was banana! The whole room smelled like a rotting banana until the next day, room sprays didn't help much. So, the main point to a flavoured condom (as well as a certain amount of protection against STI's) is to make the act of oral sex more pleasurable (or at least not as unpleasurable) for the one doing the act. Which flavour? A flavoured condom is much like choosing a designer knock-off from a market: you know what it is meant to be but it isn't quite there. So, choose your flavour wisely. My advice would be to choose some kind of berry flavour as, if it doesn't quite taste like the particular berry, it is not going to be far off. Mint might sound like a refreshing one to choose but I have been told it tastes like cardboard (as most mint imitations tend to). I have never tried citrus ones because I could imagine if that was going to go wrong it could end up more like washing up liquid. And the idea of banana flavoured ones still make me shudder. All-in-all flavoured condoms do have a safety aspect to them but they're also a little bit more fun.
These condoms are probably not the best thing if you want to have sex, but I will honestly tell you that flavoured condoms are an excellent choice of condom for all oral sex. They come in a huge range of flavours including banana, strawberry, apple, orange, kiwi, vanilla and even tropical fruits like pineapple. My favourite ones are strawberry and apple. However some of the flavours may be too sickly or sweet for some, but there are some not so sweet flavours like vanilla and banana. To buy the best flavoured condoms are from the durex range, as they are the best condom brand. However from this brand they can be quite expensive but they are worth it if you want to have very good oral sex, a pack of three is around three to four pounds, a pack of eight is about six pounds, and a pack of 12 will costs around eight to nine pounds. However you can get cheaper flavoured condom brands, but they work just the same as durex condoms, but personally I would go for the durex brand. They are sold in Superdrug, Boots and various supermarkets. Overall, looking at my review I would recommend flavoured condoms for all oral sex, but I wouldn't recommend these condoms for sexual intercourse as they won't give you as much pleasure and fun as other types of condoms.
Chocolate, banana, vanilla, strawberry....what ever you fancy. Flavoured condoms, just like normal ones just with taste. Originally my incentive for buying flavoured condoms was to hide the smell of sex from my parents. After a good de-stress session there was always seemed to be linger the air I found when using flavoured condoms the atmosphere would just smell fruity. This goes for your hands too (you don't have the strange smell some lubricants leave). Have you ever tired oral sex with a normal condom??? Word of warning do not endure such pain!!! I had to learn the hard way it tastes bitter (not something your partner would want to kiss you after you've done your deed). Flavoured condoms allow you to pleasure your other half for longer while you enjoy the taste. From my experience the colour of the packaging (outside and the actually condom too) matches the flavour (banana yellow, apple green and so forth) so in heat of the moment little thinking is required. Alike most they come in an array of sizes however I am yet to encounter one along side added features for example ribbed flavoured condoms. In terms of handling if you are unsure the majority of boxes come with instructions on how to place it on and things not to do (place it on the wrong way, then right, then still use it, why you ask? The semen, the transparent liquid that exits your body usually during excitement carries sperm also so if you turn it around and enter a woman's body...you know the result or don't use it twice) This product can be found under brands like durex (sold in most convenient stores, supermarkets and online) or Ann summers (the name of a store which you may walk in or buy online) which are easy to locate. All this goodness is slightly more expensive than the normal condoms but well worth it. Although the NSH do hand out free condoms and I have been lucky enough to have the odd strawberry flavoured condom. Just walk into your local hospital ask for the sexual health clinic and the rest should follow, don't be shy there is nothing wrong with practicing safe sex!!
mmmmmmmm - Advantages: full flavour behaviour, long and stretchy - Disadvantages: I'm-a believin', not much feelin'
Well folks, here I am, a centurion! This is indeed my 100th opinion for dooyoo, and to celebrate, I am going to write about something a little bit more fun than my usual reviews - hope you enjoy it. ;-) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Whoever said that there was nothing new under the sun was onto something you know. Condoms - which I'm sure a lot of us think of as something quintessential of modern life - have actually been around for centuries. Apparently the ancient Egyptians used condoms made out of snakeskin or animal intestine, while the Roman soldiers had them to ward off disease from "mixing with the natives" whileon long marches away from home. 16th century Italians had them made out of linen; they were designed to protect the men who wore them from syphilis, and it was only later that they were found to have contraceptive value. However, it was not until the 1930s that latex came about, as a development from the nineteenth century vulcanised rubber condoms. And what a wonderful invention the latex condom was; a cheap and easy way to protect against sexually transmitted disease and unplanned pregnancy - although a recent survey by Durex has shown that 30% of people in the western world not attempting to procreate still have unprotected sex on a regular basis, which is really rather frightening. Anyway, the point of this review is not to scare or worry you, it is to discuss the merits of the Durex Select flavoured condoms. No longer do condoms have to be purely functional, they can be fun to use and add a little colour into your love life too. The Select range has been around for a few years now and includes coloured and flavoured condoms (mint, banana, orange, strawberry in green, yellow, orange and red respectively), and is packed in boxes of 3 (for £3.29), 6 (for £5.69) and 12 (for (£9.99). These condoms are standard sized (i.e. same diameter all the way along, not specially shaped or fitted as some in the Durex range are), are non-lubricated and are teat ended (I'm sure you can figure out why for yourself). They are widely available, both in the High Street (both Boots and Superdrug stock them, although Boots do not seem to do the 3 pack) and on the internet (a Google search will give you a wide range of sites selling Durex Select). For those of you with innocent minds, the point of flavoured condoms is that they make oral sex that bit more enjoyable for the lucky bloke's partner - while also removing the dreaded "swallow or spit" dilemma for the woman. They are used in the exact same way as with regular condoms - they are rolled down onto the erect penis before contact is made with his partner, held in place snugly during sex, and then discarded afterwards - and may be used for either straight or oral sex. But to be honest, if you are paying this much money for them (not to mention the fact that they do not have the extra protection of spermicidal lubricant) I would really recommend going for the second option with these. So now onto the burning question - what are they like to use? Well, they came in those little foil sachets that were easy to open and remove the condom without damaging it. BF seemed to find them comfortable to wear, although they did have a tendency to roll up during proceedings, so perhaps the fit wasn't quite as good as it could have been. (But then what man is actually going to not want to wear them on the basis that they are mildly uncomfortable, given that he may well be getting things his own way a bit more often?). As for taste, well the 3 pack we bought to try out contained a banana, an orange and a strawberry, which did taste and smell in a way that allowed you to recognise the flavour and mask out the smell of the latex, but were not overly strong. They were not that unpleasant in the mouth - certainly better than plain latex or (even wors e!) having a mouthful of the spermicidal lubricant that some condoms come with! I do wish that you had more choice in the flavours though, as the 3 packs are basically just a random choice of the four available - and I would have preferred a mint one to the banana for example. I'm sure the techie bods at Durex could bring us some more flavours than these four as well... But anyway, from what I could gather, the sensitivity seemed to be at an acceptable level though. ;-) My overall verdict? A bit pricey, but quite good fun to use (especially if you are a bloke!), and they do add a little something into your love life. We certainly had some fun with them and I can see us buying Durex Select again at some point, but not on a regular basis (although I would be more willing to do so if there was a greater choice in flavours). Useful information: www.durex.com Select 3 pack - £3.29 Select 6 pack - £5.69 Select 12 pack £9.99 (Prices as quoted on Durex site; these may vary between shops and internet retailers). REMEMBER - never use a condom more than once, or use one when it is past its best before date!
A lot of my opinions seem to start with "why" but this time I mean it. I can't really understand what flavoured condoms are doing on this planet. Firstly, they smell minging. Hardly sexy. And as I've discovered over the years, the smell of "sex" is actually a bit of a turn-on, so why hide it with smelly pieces of rubber? Secondly, they are always "non spermicidically lubricated", which isn't so good if you plan to use them for sex following any oral activities you chose to partake in. I'm not on the pill, and am in a long-term relationship, which means that I trust my partner in all ways, but for the sake of this opinion, I'm thinking of the sexually transmitted disease side of sex. I don't want to get pregnant, and to be honest, I don't altogether trust condoms, so I'd prefer to be as protected as i can be, which means I prefer the spermicidically lubricated variety. I have, however, rated these condoms as good in terms of not splitting. This is because i've never seen one split and they are very thick. Not so good for romantic feelings, but I guess they have to be teeth-resistant too! I understand that these condoms are often used for oral sex purposes. Like I said earlier, I am in a long-term relationship and don't feel the need for "flavouring" so to speak, and I don't worry about teh disease factor. So I don't need flavouring here. I have, however, in the past, used them for oral sex, and I must say that most of them taste particularly foul. Durex do "mint", "tangerine", "banana", and "strawberry", and out of them I'd say steer clear of the banana, it's almost a gritty taste. The others are OK, but not my cup of tea. Thirdly, most other condoms are natural coloured, and the idea of a bright blue penis doesn't exactly excite me. It's not very natural, and rather amusing. Maybe at the a ge of 21 I'm getting a bit too old-fashioned for this, but all round, I don't like them. Fourthly, how is your fella supposed to enjoy oral sex with a bright orange willy? It's just not sexy. I never really understood that. All in all, if you're looking for some fun, and don't mind a laugh, then they are cool. If you want to be protected during intercourse, steer clear, and also I must add that some of the flavours interfere with me, and I get itches too (especially mint.....chilly)!
Firstly I'd like to say thank you to the wonder that is Sexy Kay for introducing me to this category, had my curiosity not got the better of me and I'd never looked down for her first op I would never be writing this one. Cheers Kay. NOT FOR THE KIDDIES! Sorry, a simple warning as there's ideas here which are not really appropriate to all ages. So, we get to the opinion.... The idea of condoms is quite simple, you stop the sperm reaching the egg by putting a barrier in between and stop genital contact between those involved to avioid the spread of whatever, they're usually functional and boring things, a little bit pathetic once they're out of their foil covering. Not so, the flavoured condom: Designed for a bit more than functional sex and able to be used, ahem, orally without the taste of horrid rubber being left in the mouth of the participant (took me a while to think of the appropriate word there). Where do you get them? Simple, your pub toilet is the principal outlet, you've all seen them I'm sure, a grubby machine on the wall, usually with some kind of gaudy facade and bright pink writing all over it, the simple "Add £1 for 2 condoms" and the knob to turn (no comments please). The Chemist - found in the Condom section. Who makes them? Well, just about all reputable condom makers do. Mates have a range (you probably remember the adverts all over the place - all sorts of pictures of fruit being peeled suggestively), Durex and Jiffy (being the predominant in the pub loo machines). Who are these aimed at? Tricky one this - who exactly is appealed by these condoms? Perhaps the flavours will give us a clue... The packets are usually of a Mix-and-Match persuasion, you can never be sure of getting something fruity or something other than fruity. With the Mates ones you're going to be sure of fruitiness whereas with Jiffy you could get just about anything (Similar to Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans). Let's look at this loguically shall we - fruity - going to appeal to the younger age groups, not too keen on the flavour of nature's plaything? Get it sheathed up with something a little similar to Bacardi Breezer. Easy. Non-fruity (and here we're talking everything from scotch, gin, curry and chocolate) - bound to appeal to those of a slightly older persuasion, a little like a tipple whilst having a tickle. The idea of fruity condoms is there, I'm sure, to get more oral for those men who are with someone who is not too keen, a male invention surely and, if it gets the results, all the better. They're all kite marked and safe, whatever brand you get, they do the job and, if you partake, best of luck to you.
Well I just had to write an opinion on what are called flavoured condoms, because those who have, have mad a killing on the reads of the opinion. That just proves on thing to me, that is that we are all very raunchy and horny and find nothing better than sex. Condoms are a part of every persons every day life (us me would like). Unless you have any other means of contraception, or plainly just want to ruin your life with some kids. Anyway, we all know what condoms are used for, you wouldn’t have been attracted to this opinion otherwise, they basically stop men from getting women pregnant, and are also vital in stopping the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. So they are a very important. So on the flavoured part, getting on thing straight, THERE NOT FOR CONSUMPION! . They are mainly for you partner, meaning that once you’ve got the thing on she or he, I should say can have, let’s a good suck while it’s being worn. The differing flavours adding to the experience. There are many flavours about like apple, orange and banana etc. So flavoured condoms, designed for oral sex but can be used for normal sex and cost between £3-£5 for a pack of four.
Spit or Swallow? Hey with these you won't have to, unless of course you get the brie flavour in which case you might as well go to a man with no hygiene concept (foul, but true). Flavoured condoms really are the way forward, Professor Comdon really thinks so he was telling Tony Blair the other day I heard. Avoid all those nasty situation, instead of wearing a peg and getting the job done ASAP, now you can take your time with a nice taste, but don't lick after well you no any insertion, especially at the back, not a nice taste, but also beware you may not be able to tell the difference with the chocolate ones :-/ Replace the taste of c*ck, or two day old socks with strawberry, lime, pina colada or even old english mustard! On Sunday's I recommend the Yorkshire Pud and Roast dinner concotion for a fabulous treat! Say bye to Colin with these tasty delights and stay safe forever!
Hello and once again welcome to all my readers. For those of you not yet updated about my recent condom exploits, my name is Steve and I am attempting to trial EVERY condom in the Dooyoo section. This is the latest: JIFFY FLAVOURED CONDOMS: Available in 4 flavours; Apple, Strawberry, Blueberry and Chocolate. Designed solely for oral sex and should not be used for other sexual activities. THE LOOK: These condoms look very, very strange. Actually, they're not that bad, just a different colour. I dont know why I wasnt expecting that, after all, they are flavoured. Other than that, they look exceptionally normal. THE SMELL: I was expecting the different flavours to smell rather different, but they dont. In fact, they all just smell of the usual latex. This was a little offputting at first, especially for my gf who has to have her face so close to them, a smell like that really doesn't work wonders on the sex drive you know. Anyway, we continued..... SPECIAL FEATURE: These condoms are simply designed for Oral sex, says so on the pakcet. They are flavoured in an attempt to provide a better taste than the penis or the semen that will surely follow. They are NOT for normal sex, so please dont try to use them this way (unless its in the name of research ;-) See below :)). THE TASTE: This is an important part of these condoms and as it is their 'special feature'. I don't know how many people have tried them but I can now reveal that they're..... AWFUL! For a condom that prides itself on taste, my gf couldn't find even one that she liked, and I have to admit I agree with her. The chocolate one tasted like it was tinted with rubber so badly that it simply made you want to vomit, the apple one was bitter and the others were just as bad. Indeed, my girlfriend decided to lop off the condom and go it bare as she would rather taste semen than these (and she really isn't a big fan of that taste!). THE MALE SENSATION: These are designed solely for male pleasure as oral sex is supposedly the best orgasm a man can get. I disagree, but with these condoms we didnt get that far, my girlfriend simply refused to use them as they tasted so vile, so I guess I will never truly know. From the time that I did have them on I can tell you that the sensation wasnt that great though. In fact it was pretty poor all things considered. The condom prevented any real feeling coming through to the penis and that in turn meant I wasnt able to even stay erect until the condom was removed. A horrible flaw in the design of an 'oral sex condom'. THE SAFETY: Few people are aware that HIV can be contracted via Oral sex, especially if you have cuts in the mouth, so using a condom is a safer way to have sex, especially if you are on a one-night stand or are dubious of your partners affairs, they also withstand the split test during use. They do come with the kite marks, but in this circumstance they require the company to state that they are not safe for penetrative sex owing to the lack of a spermicide. As they are not intended for this though, the kite mark was not removed. As usual, you need to perform the light test (hold it up to the light to check for holes). In my case I had no problems with any of the condoms that I used and they all passed with flying 'colours' :) There is a stark warning on the box though, DO NOY USE FOR ORDINARY SEXUAL ACTIVITIES. This might have been better phrased, but basically these condoms are not safe to use for sex and shouldn't therefore be used for penetrative sex. Simple enough? Well not for me, I wanted a full op and I was determined to get one, so, my girlfriend happy enough to try, we did. THE 'NORMAL' SEX: These condoms did nothing for or against us in normal sex. They didn t split and felt ok for on the penis. The strange side-effect was a clour loss of the condom but we soon found out why, my girlfriend was shall we say 'internally blue'. She wasn't too impressed but it didnt hurt so no major problems, it washed out later. The male and female sensations were the same as with any other ordinary condom so I can neither rate or underate it, the only thing to be aware of is that these have no spermicides and are not designed for this, so dont expect full protection! THE PRICE: At £3 in a pub toilet for 4 I didn't do too badly, of course thats assuming they were any good. As it was, they were a total waste of money, so sadly I am now £3 short in my pocket with little to show for it. Still, at least you lot won't make the same mistake eh? Right.....? Oi, come back here....... ONE LAST WARNING, WHEN USING A CONDOM, ALWAYS CHECK THE USE BY DATE!
• WARNING – There may be some very tacky language used in this op. Words such as ‘splat’, ‘goo’, ‘plop’, ‘spurt’, ‘suck’, ‘blow’ and even ‘todger’ could find their into the text. Phases such as ‘Oh yeah Baby’ and ‘Harder, yes, aaaaaagh’ may not be graphically portrayed, but simply inferred. Please, if you find these kind of words offensive…..what the hell are you reading THIS for? +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ There are three main kinds of penetrative sex – lets face it – and condoms are extremely useful in each of them. Whether you are a man or a woman – engaging in oral sex, full intercourse or any kind of ‘backdoor’ activity – these days Condoms are a must. OK So there are those of us – married for a gazillion years – who have just the one sexual partner. In this case, condoms need not be used during sexual playtime, but can be used possibly as a change or as an aid to lubricating parts which in advancing age may not be as pliable and amenable to errr….rough treatment as in past years. Obviously the horrors of HIV (or as someone I know called it ‘HGV’ – does he know something about lorry drivers I don’t?) and Aids have brought the ‘Safe Sex’ use of condoms to the forefront. With not only homosexual intercourse, being linked to these diseases, but ‘straight’ sex too, especially of an overly promiscuous nature. The whole notion of ‘safe sex’ took on a completely new meaning at the end of the 1980s with the spread of these awful plagues. It used to be that a man would wear a condom purely to prevent his lady getting pregnant. If the couple were regular sexual partners and a condom was dispensed with, the worst that would happen would be….a bouncing baby! O r the absolute worse case scenario would be those taboo ‘sexual diseases’, V.D - gonorrhoea, syphilis etc, if you were to ‘sleep around’. But the advent of Aids scared the sexually liberated – both straight and gay. It was a killer. Gone therefore are the days when ‘condom’ was a ‘dirty word’..the kind of thing that schoolboys (and indeed grown men) would snigger about and get embarrassed buying at the chemists. It was accepted that if you were ‘out on the pull’, you would carry one with you – just to be ‘safe’ – but also one less reason why the ‘apple of your eye’ would not sleep with you, of course. In fact in the new ‘condom generation’, I’m sure there has been more than one moment of embarrassment, when the girl of your dreams rings you up to suggest you ‘bring your mates round’. So you dive into your bedroom draw, grab a handul of ‘mates’ condoms and dash round………oops! I must confess, the last time I used a condom was somewhere around 1975. I think they were still made of rubber in those days. But for the sake of this opinion only, I convinced my wife of very nearly 25 years, to ‘humour me’ (funny phrase for oral sex isn’t it?) and we set about getting in a supply of the latest….or should I say ‘latex’ varieties. Now before any of you even think that to ‘road test’ half a dozen condoms, in the normal course of our sexual life would take well over six months – don’t let my bald head and ageing features fool you. I AM A STUD! (...yes dear and you are a horny bitch too...- she’d like that put in writing in case any of our neighbours read this). So it was off to the chemists, the men’s toilets in a pub and a couple of other places locally that have blacked out windows and sell all manner of ̵ 6;sexual playthings’ shall we say..??!! Not being used to wearing this little things any longer (well not longer – shorter to be truthful), I did not quite know what to look for – after all the ones with the ribbed bits and the nobby things on the end where not going to give ME the pleasure were they? Size matters, of course - Am I dreaming or did they used to have ‘shrink to fit’ ones in the old days? Whether your manhood is the size of a wiggly worm, or stands as tall and erect as Big Ben, then there is a size for you. They come is ‘tiny todger’ size, ‘merely a mouthful’, which is pretty much medium, right through to ‘dustbin liner’ for those of you who like to boast that ‘extra large’ is a bit of a ‘snug fit’ !!! After doing our market research, we settled on some flavoured condoms – a glow in the dark one (so that Jill could carry on reading her book – under the covers) – a couple of ‘regulars’ and a Durex one “with uniquely positioned ribs designed for greater lovemaking, coral coloured, lubricated with a non-spermicidal lubricant, teat-ended”. So let’s get ready to rumble – as it were. First....please, could we try the ‘Rhubarb and Custard’ flavoured one. With the picture on the pack this looked good enough to eat – and if only I’d been just a bit more flexible....??? But my road tester declared that it was ‘bloody horrid!’, so there was the first bout of potential excitement rather ‘blown away’. The excitement mounted (you see that’s my WWF nickname – ‘The Excitement’) and it was onward and upward....??!! The ribbed one was very popular for the lady, I’m pleased to report and after disposing of that one quickly (hey I’ve got a few to get through, I can’t hang around) it was back to a ‘ ;taste test’. Maybe strawberry or banana would be more to her liking. Hey, yes, this Strawberry is good. Mmmmmm very tasty – don’t know what she thought about it, but it was doing the ‘business’ for me. Then – damn it – the bloody phone goes!!!! It was my eldest son, can we pick him up in the morning and take him to work? To say that rather ruined the moment….well. “Let’s try turning the lights out and get to work on the ‘glow in the dark’ one”. Now this was something different. It worked. A little bit of lip action, some smooth tongue work and we were ready for re-entry. Yes, it definitely looked odd, but it was a rather pleasurable ‘odd’. Very Sci-Fi. Ideal for some role playing I’d say. “Ground Control to Major Tom…. la la la…. I’m getting very near….la la la”. And another one bites the dust. Well all that has definitely worn me out. Anyway I, sorry , We would recommend the Durex Ribbed, definitely for the female partner’s heightened pleasure. They are not expensive (£24.95 for 36 – should be enough for the weekend!) and you could buy from a reputable and long established supplier like Superia Supplies – now online at www.superia-supplies.com. Well that’s it from me, I hope you’ve enjoyed my piece of indulgence. Good Night and Good Sex.
Condoms are a necessary evil for the society that we live in today. And I would rather be safe than sorry. Really boring public announcement type warning: Condoms protect against Sexually transmitted disease and getting pregnant. Please note that flavoured condoms do not have special spermcide in them to kill sperm. So if you get one on the outside then you are going to be having a bun in the oven. Back to the interesting bit. Flavoured condoms. The reason hubby and I use them is for well how do I put this rather delicately. Well let's put my foot right in it up to my neck. Blow jobs. As I do not like the taste of sperm. Not just hubbies but any. I have tried it once (And no I did not swallow) and it made me gag. I had to run to the bathroom spit it out and rinse my mouth out with water. Never again. So flavoured condoms make it little bit nicer. They do come in wide variety of flavours. The ones that I have at the moment are cherry, mint, chocolate and orange (not together). I normally buy them from a mail order shop. They are quick and discreet. And is value for money. It was 30 for £5. The flavour to start with is very strong and then fades away to quick. And you are left with a little bit of flavour and a lot of rubber. The only thing that I have found is that you need to be careful with the mint ones. As if you use they to carry on with they made me feel very warm below. And it was not a very nice warm feeling it was more a burning feeling rather than a warm glow. Remember always think with the right head (that is if you are man)and do the right thing. Think of your own health as well as the person that you are with.
Life isn't fair. This morning I sat and wrote what I thought was a great opinion on Persistent Organic Pollutants. After I posted the op on dooyoo I went away, and returned about 2 hours later to check on its progress, and how many reads did it have? A big fat zero!! Just as I was about to leave I checked the front page and saw a new op on condoms, so I checked it out. It had received 30 reads in what could only have been a few minutes. Sex sells, its as simple as that. So I really have to start writing about it too. I may not know anything at all about condoms, and I don't, but here’s what I have to say anyway. Condoms are great things aren't they! Sex is fun; everyone wants to do it as much as possible (although some people more than others, and generally men more than women!). But of course we don't want the possibility of a baby every time people have sex, contraception is needed, and by far the easiest method of contraception is the condom. I can remember the first time I heard about condoms, I must've been around 10 or so and because I lived in the middle of nowhere I had to get the bus with all the older kids to school. What I can remember is a song, I think called 'The Condom Song'. It was some cheesy attempt to make people use condoms, and included lyrics along the lines of '....... don’t be silly, put a condom on your willy' and '........you are slick, put a condom on your d**k'. At the time I didn't have a clue what they were!! Condoms come in all shapes and sizes, by which I mean you can get both male and female condoms, although the female condom dubbed the 'femidom' hasn't really taken off. It never seemed practical for the woman to use the condom, it always just seemed much more simpler and easier for the man to wear one. So even if you just consider the male condom there are still a number of variants on the traditional piece of rubber. Flavoured Condom This one took me even longer to figure out as a kid, what’s the use in a flavoured condom. How innocent I was. This is very useful for the women who don't like all their men could give them (look, I'm struggling to find a clean way to say all this!). They come in all flavours, from curry to coffee (I think anyway). Being male I haven't ever tasted one, so can't comment on the taste. Ribbed Condom For her pleasure. Quite simple really, a ribbed condom is going to do more for women than a smooth one, so if you want to do a little more for your wife, why not try one of these. Safer Condoms Condoms aren't 100% effective, they can split. If you want a bit more peace of mind that you aren't going to be landed with a baby then this is for you. They are also more appropriate for a certain type of love making, but how on earth I'm supposed to write it on a family site like dooyoo I don't know! Sensitive Condoms Some men complain that condoms reduce the feeling of sex, so these condoms are thinner and put more of the feeling back in to sex. The downside is they are more likely to split, so it’s up to you which ones you use. Novelty Condoms - i.e. Glow in the Dark Glow in the dark condoms, what’s the use? I don't know to be honest, apart from the obligatory Darth Vader light saber joke! Sods law dictates that should a man go in to a shop to buy condoms the cashier will be an old granny who will look down her nose at you. The solution, buy them from a vending machine. Simply insert your money and take your pick! And of course there seems little point in making different sizes of condoms, as which man would buy condoms labelled small? Should a man try to, Sods law dictates that that old granny cashier will be replaced by a young beautiful woman who will delight in smirking to herself over your purchase, leaving you feeling a little inadequate. The last word, don't be left without condoms, the one time you don't have any you will need them, and not having when you need them is VERY annoying.
I prefer not to use condoms when I'm with my regular guy. Flesh tastes nice so why bother when I know that he's safe. I'm sure that the protein must be good for me. Problem is I sometimes stray and play away from home. Naughty I know, but nice. Now with an away fixture you can't take any risks so I have condoms at the ready. The taste of rubber I don't like so when I think it looks like oral is on the horizon a flavoured condom is a decent alternative. I like banana! This way I can munch away happily on my favourite fruit. Pity they don't do flesh and semen flavoured condoms! That way it would be nearly like the real thing. Or am I getting into the realms of fantasy here? Flavoured condoms? They are unfortunately a necessity in todays world. Don't leave home without them.
I first bought a huge packet of flavoured and coloured condoms a little while back when I found buying condoms embarrassing...I just grabbed the first packet, and headed for the checkout. The packet which I had picked up came in a variety of fruit flavours, although I have since noticed that they pretty much come in any flavour you fancy even pretty disgusting ones like tequila and curry flavours have been spotted in vending machines in pub loos. The flavoured ones I bought were safe for intercourse, but you have to watch which ones you buy - especially the ones from vending machines as these often are not safe for penetrative sex. But on that first occasion, an amusing evening ensued, when the first one that I gabbed was a yellow, banana flavoured one. What were they thinking?? With a way strong smell, and an extremely artificial taste, a bit like those banana chews we used to have when I was young, we both started sniggering, with me insisting that he should be sharing the ridiculous experience, and be tasting it too. Then before you knew it we were laughing so much that tears were running down our faces - my bedroom didn't see much action that evening! So definately a safe sex event. However, the other less offensive colours and flavours in this pack were fine, and after the initial childish behaviour, we didn't notice that they were any different from other regular condoms. The only difference is that it can make make oral sex more enjoyable for the person giving it, if you want to go down on someone who's history you don't know, or if you don't like the taste of semen - as long as the flavour is something which doesn't induce you to hysterics - possibly proving painful for the guy on the receiving end... So, on the downside the smell of these flavoured condoms is very strong, and can be quite off putting at first. However, if you're looking for something a bit different, or simply don't mu ch like the usual smells and tastes involved, (and lets face it, if you're going for putting plain latex in your mouth, it is not great,) then these could work for you.
