How to Choose a Condom
Condoms are available in different sizes, thicknesses and flavours. Also, most condoms are made from latex or polyisoprene. There are a lot of factors to be considered when choosing a condom, the most important being size. In this article we help you find the perfect condom, to boost your sex life.
When choosing a condom, remember that size does matter. If you buy condoms that do not fit well, it will leave space at the tip or the base and not fit properly. This can then lead to slippage during sex and also make you look smaller.
But, if you buy a condom that is too small, it may break during sex. So it is important to buy a condom which fits well. If you are unsure about the size, read the instructions on the condom packet, as this will give you a better idea about whether the condom will be a perfect fit for you.
Condoms are also available in a variety of shapes. Most have a reservoir tip, a plain tip, while others are indented below the head of the penis or may be flared. Try ribbed condoms, if you are looking for a condom, which will give both you and your partner sexual pleasure. Ribbed condoms are textured with ribs or bumps and are known to increase sensation for both partners.
Condoms also come in a variety of colours and some are flavoured. They flavoured condoms are created specifically for oral sex. But, they can also be used for penetrative sex.
Most condoms are lubricated to prevent the latex from sticking to itself. But you may find that a little extra lube helps, especially since latex tends to stick to the skin. So use a water-based or silicone lube, to prevent the latex from sticking to the skin.
