Choosing the right condom may take some experience and practice. We are here to speed up that process. After you are done with the buying guide, you will have a clear idea about what works best for you and your partner.
If it's a string, you can measure the string and note down the number. Condoms usually mention their length and girth in millimeters. The standard size is 180mm or 7 inches in length and 53mm or 2 inches in width. That doesn't mean that every man out there is walking with a 7-inch junk in their pants, and the width is the measurement when the condom is laid flat.
Girth is double the width. So a condom with 2-inch width will fit a penis of girth 4 inches. You don't have to roll down the condom completely, but there shouldn't be too much unrolled portion either. Make sure that the condom reaches the base of your penis, or it will slip off during intercourse. Wearing a tight condom is uncomfortable too, so the right size is safe and comfortable.
Learn more about lubricated, flavored, textured, climax delay condoms, etc., and the benefits of using them from the sections below.
When sexually aroused, a woman's body produces fluids to lubricate the vagina. But if your partner has vaginal dryness, using a condom without lubrication can cause pain from the friction. Nowadays, almost all condoms come lubricated (inside and outside), but if you end up buying a non-lubricated one, we advise you to use a lube to smooth things up. Lubrication also prevents condom breakage.
Some condoms mention "with extra lubrication" on the pack. They have comparatively more lubrication, so you don't have to use extra lube, but there is no rule here. Here is another reason for choosing lubricated condoms. Too much friction can also cause you to climax faster. If you want to last longer, use extra lubrication even if the condom is lubricated.
Here is a pro tip. Be careful if you plan on buying extra lube for condoms. Oil-based lubes can degrade latex and polyisoprene condoms and cause them to break while they are safe to be used with lambskin and polyurethane condoms. If you are using latex or polyisoprene condoms, go for water or silicone-based lubricants.
There are thousands of nerve endings on the penis and the vagina. During sexual intercourse, these nerves get stimulated, giving you pleasure and ultimately orgasm. Dotted and ribbed condoms have a raised texture, on the inside and the outside, that provides extra stimulation to these nerves.
If you or your partner find it difficult and time-consuming to reach an orgasm, try using ribbed or dotted condoms. The more ribs and dots a condom has, the more stimulating it is. For example, Skore condoms with 1500 dots can provide you more pleasure than Manforce Wild Condoms with 384 dots and 5 ribs. Condoms can make oral sex even more exciting.
Yes, you should wear a condom before oral sex to prevent contracting any STDs from the cuts and sores in your partner's mouth. You can find various flavors like chocolate, orange, strawberry, and banana that will make your partner drool all over you. The taste of rubber latex is not that pleasing. Flavored condoms can be useful in masking that unpleasant taste too.
Climax delay condoms are beneficial for people who want to last longer in bed. They contain a lube with benzocaine, a local anesthetic that reduces the sensitivity of the penis. It will help people with premature ejaculation and also those who want to extend their lovemaking session.
If your partner usually lasts longer than you, try using climax delay condoms with ribs and dots. There is nothing more intimate than climaxing together! If you can't find climax delay condoms, look for a climax delay lube. Put a dollop in the condom before you wear it, and you are all set to ride.
Condoms come in various shapes: straight wall, flared, contoured, etc. Straight wall condoms have the same width from the opening to the end. It is the most commonly found condom in India. If you have large glans (head of the penis), you may find straight wall condoms to be too tight. Flared condoms are here for the rescue.
They are wider around the head than the rest of the wall, giving more comfort to your glans. The extra latex can also stimulate your glans for a faster orgasm. If you find straight wall condoms to be too tight-fitting, try contoured condoms. They are shaped like a penis and grips the penis perfectly. This prevents it from slipping off, ensuring maximum protection.
Natural rubber latex is the most popular material used for making condoms. But if you are allergic to it, there are other options available to explore, like polyisoprene, polyurethane, and lambskin. Of the three, polyisoprene is the most preferred. It is softer and transmits heat better than latex, providing a more natural feel during intercourse.
The warming sensation increases pleasure during sex. Polyurethane has almost all the properties of polyisoprene, except it is less elastic and more prone to break or slip off during sex. Lambskin condoms are very rare in India. They are made from lambs' intestinal membrane and provide more sensitivity than latex, just like polyisoprene.
But think twice before going for it. Lambskin is just as effective as other types in preventing pregnancy but not at all effective in protecting you against sexually transmitted diseases. If you have a choice between the three, go for polyisoprene for that extra intimacy.
If you want extra sensation during sex but cannot find polyisoprene condoms, try going for thin latex condoms. But here is the issue. Condom companies don't mention the measurement of the thickness, rather they use words like "Extra thin" and "Ultra thin". The "Extra thin" by one company may be "Medium" for another.
The only way is to try out various brands. But there are a few things to consider before buying. Since thin condoms increase sensitivity, you are likely to climax faster. If you are someone who climaxes faster or premature ejaculation, it is better to opt for a thicker condom (maybe standard or medium). Using a delay lube can also help.
Just because a condom is thin doesn't mean that they are more likely to break. But if you or your partner are troubled by the thought that a thin condom could break easily, you can go for the thickest one a company can offer. You won't be distracted and will have peace of mind while having fun. Here is a pro tip: use a lubricant with a warming or cooling sensation while using thicker condoms.
Female condoms or internal condoms are meant for women. They can be inserted into the vagina up to 8 hours before sex. Here are the reasons female condoms are more pleasurable. You don't have to ruin the moment by searching your wallet for a condom, tearing the pack open, and putting it on your penis.
Plan ahead and ask your partner to wear it a couple of hours in advance so you can get right into business when the time comes. Since women have more at stake than men when it comes to pregnancy, using an internal condom will ensure peace of mind, as she is in control of her sexual and reproductive health.
Female condoms have an inner ring made of sponge material for easier insertion into the vagina and for absorbing the semen. During vaginal intercourse, the sponge can stimulate the tip of the penis, giving you increased pleasure. The outer ring of the female condom can rub against the clitoris and vulva, making sex enjoyable for her too.

Durex Mutual Climax is a pack of dotted and ribbed condoms for both you and your partner's pleasure. It comes with the Performa lubricant, a benzocaine-based lubricant that will reduce the sensitivity of your penis so you can last longer. Among Durex's range of condoms, Mutual Climax comes with medium thickness.
It has a standard size of 180mm and a width of 53mm, making it suitable for male organs up to 7 inches in length and 4.2 inches in girth. The condoms are transparent for those who like their natural skin color to show for more intimacy.
We recommend Mutual Climax to men who feel they climax too quickly or have premature ejaculation and for speeding up your girl to reach that earth-shattering orgasm.
Invisible is the thinnest condoms yet by Durex. It is almost as if you are not wearing one. We recommend this product to men looking for high sensitivity and a more natural feel. You don't have to worry about any breakage as latex is an extremely stretchable material.
Since there will be more sensitivity, you may climax faster. So you can try using a delay gel before you wear the condom. The pack contains 10 transparent condoms with a teat (reservoir tip) for collecting your love fluid. You don't have to worry about your privacy as Amazon ships this product discreetly.
Skore Adventure Pack provides you a selection of assorted condoms of various flavors, colors, and types. You get four packs of chocolate, strawberry, banana, and orange-flavored condoms, one pack of climax delay condoms, one pack of blue-colored, and many more.
The adventure pack will be a perfect choice for you and your partner if you are traveling or on a honeymoon and want to spice up your sex life by adding something unique every time you make love.
The dotted condoms have over 1500 dots for even more sensual pleasure. All packs except Not Out comes with extra lubrication, so you don't have to worry about stopping in between.
For women who want to take control of their sex life, PEE SAFE DOMINA is the right product for you. It can be worn up to 8 hours before intercourse, allowing unplanned and impulsive sex safe and uninterrupted (the man doesn't have to take a break to wear a condom!).
The sponge inside serves two purposes: it makes it easier for you to insert it and also absorbs the ejaculate, thus preventing any accidental mess. Both of you can enjoy without worrying about condom breakage as the width of this condom is 3 inches, which is more than enough for male organs of any size.
The length is just 5.3 inches, which can safely stretch up to 5.7 inches. This may be a drawback for some users. DOMINA is lavender flavored and lubricated for smooth riding.
If you find the standard size of condoms to be too small, go for the KamaSutra Wondermax XL condoms. It has a length of 200mm (7.8 inches), but the 53mm width is standard. The condoms are dotted for extra pleasure and lubricated to prevent breakage from friction and avoid discomfort for your partner due to vaginal dryness.
The pack contains 6 condoms, and they are pink colored. The standard width of 53mm may be a drawback, considering men usually expect more width along with length from XL condoms. We recommend wearing the right-sized condom so it won't slip or tear during intercourse, thus ensuring comfort and safety.
If straight-walled condoms are uncomfortable for you, go for Manforce Wild Condoms. It is contoured, allowing a perfect and comfortable fit. The contour also acts as an extra grip to prevent the condom from slipping off the penis. You and your partner can experience more stimulation from the 384 dots and five ribs on the condom.
It is made of natural rubber latex and has the standard girth of 52mm. It is chocolate flavored, making oral sex even more exciting and delightful for your partner. Manforce Wild Condoms come in four other flavors: mint, coffee, strawberry, and black grapes.
Moods Joyride is a pack of 12 flared condoms. Since they are wider at the head, your glans will have space to breathe. If you feel that straight wall and contoured condoms are too snugging, go for these without any second thoughts. It is scented, so your partner doesn't get turned off by the latex smell.
As for pleasure, Moods Joyride is dotted and ribbed to stimulate both you and your partner. The condoms are made of latex, and the pack contains 12 of them. They have a standard size of 180mm in length and 53mm in width. Flared condoms are not that popular in India. The only brand we could find selling flared condoms is Moods. Give this a try, and you won't go back!
If you or your partner is allergic to latex, try Skyn Extra Lubricated condoms. It is made of polyisoprene, which is softer and provides a more natural feel than latex condoms. It comes with 40% more lubrication than Skyn Original condoms and has a peat end for collecting your ejaculate after climax.
The strength is the same as that of latex. Skyn offers other types like ultra-thin condoms and dotted condoms for those looking for more pleasurable sex. Its transparent wall also allows the natural skin color to show, allowing an even more natural and intimate feel.
You already know the standard size of condoms in India. KamaSutra Pink Passion is for those who feel that the standard size doesn't fit properly. It has a length of 170mm (6.69 inches) and a width of 49mm (1.9 inches). Using a loosely fitting condom will not protect you from sexually transmitted diseases or prevent unplanned pregnancy.
The condom could also fall off or get stuck inside the vagina during intercourse. Pink Passion condoms are lubricated but not flavored or scented and don't have any ribs or dots. We advise not to use these if your penis size is only fit for standard-sized condoms as the tight fit could be uncomfortable with the possibility of breakage.
KamaSutra Honeymoon Surprise could be one of the best gifts you can ever give to your partner. The pack contains more than just condoms. You get erotic games, a feather teaser, a booklet with lovemaking tips, a blindfold, a lubricant, and disposable bags for the condoms.
A total of 21 condoms of various flavors, thickness, and textures are present in the pack. Your partner would like the chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry flavors, and both of you can experiment and enjoy with the ribbed and dotted condoms. Finally, when you are ready to change the gear, you can go for the super-thin condoms. We recommend this product for adding fun and excitement to your sex life.
