Advances in condom manufacturing technology and materials, coupled with high market demand, have led to condoms becoming increasingly available in ‘thin’ varieties

‘Thin’ refers to the thickness of the condom wall (the condom material) which, for thin and ‘ultra-thin’ condoms, is typically 50% of a standard condom.

It’s common for Ultra-thin condoms to also have a smaller nominal width (i.e. girth). This provides a tighter fit, which can again contribute to a thinner wall through being stretched, and heightened sensitivity.

LELO Hex

  • Thinner and more comfortable than most condoms.
  • Extremely durable, providing peace of mind during intimate moments.
  • Unique hexagonal structure adds a slight texture for enhanced sensation.

LELO Hex condoms promise to revolutionise safe and intimate moments with their innovative design. Unlike traditional condoms, they are thinner, more comfortable, and highly durable, providing a more pleasurable experience without compromising safety. The unique hexagonal structure ensures strength and a slight texture for added sensation.

The condoms come in a stylish, classy white box, and each is individually wrapped in user-friendly wax paper, making them easy to tear and use – no more slippery wrappers. The thinness of the condoms is impressive, and the anti-slip grip ensures they stay in place during intercourse.

Overall, LELO Hex condoms are a game-changer for those seeking comfort, form-fitting condoms, and a heightened experience.

0.01s are truly something else. Extremely thin and practically transparent, they make other condoms look archaic.

Back in 2013, they established themselves as the world’s thinnest condoms, and to this day, no one has beaten that record. Plus, they’re made of polyurethane, a tough polymer alternative to latex, which means no more latex smell!

Sagamis come in adorable white tubs, so no more dealing with those seedy ramen-packet-looking wrappers. Convenience and cuteness—yes, please!

Sure, these little luxuries might be pricier than your standard condom brands, but investing in a 0.01 is well worth it.

Durex Real Feel

  • Delivered the most natural skin-like texture in our testing
  • Comfortable fit that feels less intrusive during
  • Reliable Durex quality
ansell lifestyles zero condoms

When it comes to catering to those with latex allergies or sensitivities, Durex Real Feel is a winner. No more itching or discomfort—just smooth sailing in the bedroom.

What sets this condom apart is its real-feel factor. While Ansell SKYN and Glyde Unique put up a good fight, Durex manages to clinch the title by offering a more authentic skin-to-skin sensation. It’s like getting the best of both worlds—intimacy and protection in one package.

Now, there’s always room for improvement. While Durex Real Feel is our top pick, we would love it if Durex offered an ultra-thin version. Ansell SKYN and Glyde Unique may have an edge in this department.

But hey, every product has its pros and cons, and Durex Real Feel comes out on top for its overall performance. So, if you’re looking for the best non-latex condom on the market, this one’s got the crown for a reason.

Ansell SKYN

  • Enhanced sensitivity with polyisoprene material.
  • Superior soft and natural texture.
  • Available in other variations of textures, flavours etc

The remarkable heat transfer capability of these condoms further enhances the overall experience, setting them apart from traditional options.

SKYNs feature long-lasting, ultra-smooth lubrication, ensuring a truly pleasurable encounter. Manufactured to the highest global standards by Lifestyles (known as Manix in Europe and Ansell here in Australia), these condoms offer reliability, quality, and an unmatched level of sensation.

Whether you seek an alternative to latex or simply desire heightened sensitivity, the Ansell SKYN condom collection emerges as the perfect choice, delivering unparalleled pleasure and peace of mind during intimate moments.

Best Small/Tighter Fitting Condoms

Our Top Pick
Four Seasons Naked Closer
The top choice among small condoms, offering an exceptional fit and heightened sensitivity for a truly intimate experience.
Runner Up
Glyde Slim Fit
A close runner-up with its snug fit and non-toxic, vegan-friendly materials, ensuring both comfort and peace of mind.
Still Great
Ansell LifeStyles Closer Fit
Not far behind, this condom provides a reliable and comfortable fit, ideal for those seeking a smaller size option without compromising on quality.

Using the right size condom is imperative for both safety and enjoyment.

An ill-fitting condom (especially one that is too and becomes loose) is not only uncomfortable, but also not as effective in preventing pregnancy and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI’s).

If you find that ‘regular’ sized condoms simply don’t fit in terms of slipping off during use or don’t feel as snug as you’d expect, then small condoms could be the right choice for you. Most smaller sized condoms offer a snugger fit thanks to a narrower width, typically around 48-50mm.

FAQs

  1. What condoms feel the best?

    The feel of a condom is highly subjective and can depend on individual preferences. Some people may prefer thinner condoms for a more natural feel, while others may opt for textured ones to enhance sensation. It’s always best to try out different types and brands to figure out which ones you prefer.

  2. What are the best condoms in Australia?

    There are many great condom brands available in Australia, which ones are the best for you will depend on your personal preferences. Factors to consider when choosing a condom include its material, size, thickness, texture, and whether it has any added features like lubrication or spermicide. It’s a good idea to try different ones to find out what suits you best.

  3. What condoms feel the best for men?

    The ‘best feeling’ condoms for men can vary greatly based on personal preference. Some men might prefer ultra-thin condoms for maximum sensitivity, while others might prefer ribbed or dotted ones for enhanced sensation. It’s recommended to try out different styles to find out what works best for you.

  4. What are the best condoms for her?

    The best condoms for her will depend on individual preferences. Some women might find textured condoms more pleasurable, while others might prefer thin ones for a more natural feel. Condoms with additional lubrication can also enhance comfort. The key is to have open communication and experiment together to find what works best.

  5. What condoms are best for the first time?

    For the first time, it might be best to go with a standard latex condom that fits well. Look for one that comes with lubrication to help reduce friction. Over time, you can explore different types, sizes, and textures according to your comfort and preference.

  6. What is the best brand of condoms to buy?

    The best brand of condoms to buy is subjective and depends on personal preferences and needs. Consider factors like comfort, fit, material, and any added features you might want such as texture or additional lubrication. Some brands may also offer variety packs, which can be a good way to try different styles and find the one you prefer.

  7. What are the best condoms for pleasure?

    Condoms designed for pleasure often include features like ribbing, studs, or a particular shape designed to increase sensation. Ultra-thin condoms can also enhance sensitivity for both partners. However, what brings the most pleasure will vary greatly from person to person, so it’s important to explore and find what works best for you and your partner.

  8. What condoms are best for sensitive skin?

    If you or your partner has sensitive skin, it might be best to choose condoms made from hypoallergenic materials like polyurethane or polyisoprene. Natural latex can sometimes cause reactions in individuals with latex allergies, so avoiding latex condoms might be beneficial in these cases.

  9. Which are the best condoms for lasting longer?

    Some condoms are designed to help prolong arousal, often by using a small amount of benzocaine in the tip to slightly numb sensations. However, it’s important to remember that what works best will vary from person to person. Communication with your partner and practicing control can also play a crucial part in prolonging sexual encounters.

  10. What lube is best with condoms?

    When using condoms, it’s best to use a water-based or silicone-based lubricant. These are safe to use with latex and non-latex condoms and can help reduce the risk of breakage. Avoid oil-based lubricants as they can damage latex condoms and make them less effective.

  11. Where is the best place to keep condoms?

    Condoms should be stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight or extreme temperatures, which can degrade the material over time. It’s not recommended to store them in your wallet or car for long periods due to potential exposure to heat and friction. Always check the expiration date before use.

Remember, the best condom is the one that fits well and feels comfortable for both partners. Open communication, experimentation, and understanding of each other’s needs and preferences are key to a satisfying and safe sexual experience.
