How do you choose the right Durex condom size?
Durex took into account the differences between penis sizes. Just like our feet, penises come in all shapes and sizes. You'll be glad to know that Durex manufactures condoms suitable for almost all users.
Most men in the UK and Europe will find that the regular sizes from the brand fit just right. If the Durex Regular condom size is too tight or too loose, simply go a size up or down. We clearly display the nominal width (in mm) of the condoms we stock here at Condoms.uk, which makes it easier to find your perfect fit.
Finding the right condom size is only one part of the conundrum. It's imperative you know how to put on a condom properly so that the condom acts as an effective barrier, to prevent pregnancy and the transmission of STIs.
Durex's condoms have been tested, both dermatologically and electronically, and feature the CE mark as well as the BSI kitemark. These marks indicate their safety per British and European standards, and shows that the products are made to outstanding levels of quality and trust.
What are the best Durex condoms?
Perhaps your primary concern when looking for a condom is finding out which one is the best for you. Addressing the needs of all men, Durex boasts an impressive and innovative range of condoms available in various sizes. All options fall in one of the following categories:
Durex Regular Condoms
The original Durex condoms, Durex Regular suit most men. They have a nominal width of 52mm and are 190mm long. With a thickness of 0.065mm, they provide the right balance between feel and resistance. Durex Regular condoms are lubricated with silicone oil.
Durex Thin and Ultra Thin Condoms
Designed to deliver an incredible sexual experience, the thin feel condoms in this range have been engineered for a natural feel skin-on-skin sensation. They are thinner than Durex Regular yet still suitable for all kinds of sex.
Durex Thin and Ultra Thin condoms have various sizes to suit people who need small, regular, or large condoms, and their thickness varies from 0.045mm to 0.055mm.
Durex Extra Safe Condoms
Suitable for people who like more intensity, these extra-lubricated condoms are thicker than Durex Regular but have the same size. A larger amount of lubricant with Durex Extra Safe Condoms also makes them suitable for combating dryness while increasing pleasure for your partner.
Durex Large and XL Condoms
Ideal for those who like the feel of Durex Regular condoms but need a bigger size, the Durex Large and XL condoms deliver more comfort. These condoms have a nominal width between 53mm and 57mm and are typically 205mm long.
Durex Ribbed and Dotted Condoms
Designed with your partner in mind, these condoms are specifically made to increase stimulation and help your partner reach a faster and more powerful climax. Options include products from the Durex Pleasure and Durex Intense range.
Both types have the same easy-on shape, a nominal width of 56mm, and large dots and ribs placed in a way to stimulate your partner. The main difference is the type of lubricant used.
Durex Pleasure condoms are coated with regular silicone-based lube, while Durex Intense features the brand’s Desirex gel that has a warming, cooling, and tingling feel good effect, all in one.
Durex Latex Free and Real Feel Condoms
While most Durex condoms are made from natural rubber latex, the brand has also developed a range of latex-free condoms designed for users with allergies or sensitive skin.
Both latex-free and Real Feel options are thicker than Durex Regular yet provide a snug fit capable of delivering skin-on-skin sensations. Size-wise, you can expect the same fit and comfort as Durex Regular condoms.
Durex Flavoured Condoms
Perfect for certain kinds of sex or users who don’t like the smell of latex, these condoms can bring a touch of sweetness to your bedroom.
The flavoured condoms from the brand are available in a wide range of flavours, including strawberry, cherry, tropical fruit, and chocolate, to name just a few.
Can Durex condoms break?
While Durex condoms are made from very strong, resistant materials that have contributed to the brand's success, they may break or split if they are not used properly, stored correctly, or if they are used past their expiration date.
This isn't just the case for Durex, though, condom breakage can occur no matter which brand you use. Here's a handy list of the most common causes of condom breakage, so you know what not to do:
Using the wrong condom size: A condom that's too tight can break or tear due to increased tension and friction during intercourse. At the same time, using a condom that's too big can cause the condom to slip off during sex, this is also dangerous.
Lack of lubrication: In the case of insufficient natural lubrication, the greater friction can cause the condom to break and also cause pain and irritation for you and your partner. The use of additional lube is recommended to combat the symptoms of dryness, for example. All Durex condoms are compatible with all intimate lubricants from the brand.
Using condoms that have been stored incorrectly: Heat and direct sunlight can damage the structure of the condom, leading to breakage. All condoms, Durex or otherwise, should be stored in a cool, dry place. You can keep condoms in your wallet for a few hours, but it is not recommended for you to use a condom that has been stored in your wallet or pocket for days. Heat and direct sunlight can cause condoms to perish, they become much less resistant and strong and can cause a condom that has been stored incorrectly to break.
Using expired condoms: Expired condoms are no longer considered safe and should be disposed of immediately. All condom foils bear a use-by date, the outer packaging should also clearly display a use-by date. Be sure to stick to it because once this date has expired, any unused condoms must be discarded and not used. Again, the material that condoms are made from will begin to perish once the use-by date has passed, which can lead to breakages.
Improper handling: It is essential to pay attention when unwrapping and applying the condom. Tearing the foil wrapper with your teeth or using scissors to open it may puncture the condom. Air left in the teat tip when rolling the condom may cause it to break during intercourse or ejaculation. Sharp jewellery may also damage it, while a condom placed incorrectly may slide off or break due to insufficient lubrication.
Are thinner condoms more likely to break?
Not necessarily. The thickness of the condom has little to no influence on its resistance. As long as it is used and stored as instructed, a thin condom has the same resistance as a thick one.
The thickness of a condom will also be impacted by the material it's made from, with non-latex condoms typically being thicker than latex condoms.
What lube is available from Durex?
Condoms aside, Durex also manufactures a range of intimate lubricants, with Durex Play being the most popular. All lubes from the brand fall in one of the following categories:
Durex water-based lubricants
Super light and non-sticky, Durex water-based lubes are suitable for people with sensitive skin. They are easy to clean when you’re done and don’t stain fabrics. Most water-based lubes from the brand are also suitable to use as massage gels. Various options include:
Durex Play: Perhaps the most popular intimate lubricants from Durex. This category includes a variety of water-based lubes, including warming and cooling effect lubricants, 2-in-1 massage, and intimate lubes, as well as a range of edible flavoured lubes.
Durex Naturals: Designed for people with sensitive skin, these intimate lubricants have a neutral pH and contain no perfume or colouring. The range currently comprises three options, including Naturals Pure, Naturals Extra Sensitive, and Naturals Moisture. All lubes in this range are made with 100% natural ingredients.
Durex Sensilube: This fragrance-free, colourless gel has a thicker consistency compared to Durex Play and lasts longer while having a very delicate action. It is suitable for people with sensitive skin.
These lubricants are ideal for those who need more moisture or a longer-lasting lube. The brand’s silicone lubes add more moisture and last much longer than their water-based counterparts.
Despite their thicker formula, they don’t feel greasy or sticky on the skin and are ideal for all types of sex. Options include Durex Perfect Glide and Durex Real Feel. Both silicone types are compatible with all Durex condoms.
When to use Durex lube?
Sometimes, using intimate lubricant during intercourse is a necessity. These situations include cases of vaginal dryness when your partner's body doesn’t produce sufficient natural lubricant.
Dryness is frequent during and post-menopause, but women of all ages can experience it. Symptoms include pain, soreness, or burning inside the vagina, recurring urinary tract infections, and irritation and pain during sex.
Durex lubes can help restore the natural balance of this delicate area before and during intercourse, reducing the risk of irritation and pain. Intimate lubes can make sex pleasurable for women suffering from dryness.
Durex intimate lubricants can also be used whenever you want to make sex more exciting and pleasurable. The advantages of using a lube include:
- Helping build up pleasure during foreplay and intercourse, leading to a more powerful climax.
- Helping to make a seamless transition from foreplay to intercourse.
- Increasing pleasure when using toys, or for massages.
How much lubricant should I use?
There are really no rules. You can use as little or as much lube as you want. If you have good natural lubrication, you and your partner may prefer using a smaller quantity of lube for intercourse, but you can still use a lot of it for foreplay.
Likewise, you may use as much lube as necessary to combat dryness. If you're not sure how much lube you need, simply squeeze a little lube on your fingertips and gently apply it to your intimate areas. Apply more until you achieve the desired lubrication.
What Durex accessories are available?
As well as a marketing-leading range of condoms in all shapes and sizes, Durex are also known for their compact and innovative range of toys.
On top of battery-powered accessories, Durex also offers Intense Gel - which is ideal for ensuring you both reach climax during intercourse. Condom compatible and dermatologically tested, Intense Gel is a great addition in the bedroom.
