Penis Condoms

Condoms for penises are made of very thin latex (you can get non-latex ones) that cover the penis in order to stop semen entering the vagina and helping reduce the spread of most STIs.

Types Of Penis Condoms

There are many different types of condoms available to help enhance both of yours pleasure, so there really isn't any excuse to not wear them and protect you and your partner(s).

Ribs & Dots

These condoms have two sections of ribs, on the top and at the base, which adds stimulation in just the right place for vulva owners and they have a more wider, have bulb-like tips, and a more contoured shape.

This increases penis comfort and allows nerve endings to remain in their most sensitive state.

Flavoured Condoms

These types of condoms are meant to add a dimension to oral sex.

Sensitive/Thin Feel Condoms

These condoms help with the classic complaint 'I cant feel anything'. They are thinner than most condoms.

Warming Condoms

These condoms contain a warming lubricant that is activated by natural body moisture, heating up during sexual intercourse. The gentle, warm sensations aim to enhance pleasure for both partners.

Cooling Condoms

These work the same as warming condoms but with a cooler feel which also heightens sensation.

Extra Thick Condoms

These condoms are extra thick and come with extra lube inside. The thicker latex decreases sensation which can allow you to last longer during sex.

Never double up condoms, this will not provide extra protection, instead they can rub together and break!

Internal condoms work like other condoms except they sit in the vagina and cover the penis. They are usually made from polyurethane instead of latex which means any type of lube can be used with them.

These tend to be a lot more fiddly compared to other condoms but they are great for those who want control over their protection and sadly for those who are worried about Stealthing.
