        What are thick condoms?

        Do you like rougher or anal sex but are concerned about the resistance of your condoms? That’s where thick condoms step in. These condoms are thicker than the standard variety, but they still allow you to feel a full range of sensations and intimacy.

        Most thick condoms on the market are made of natural rubber latex. If you want a resistant condom that’s on the thinner side, you should pick a polyisoprene condom.

        Polyisoprene is a type of synthetic rubber with properties similar to latex, but the material is more elastic and resistant. These characteristics allow condom manufacturers to make polyisoprene condoms that are incredibly thin but that are as strong as thicker latex condoms.

        Durex Real Feel, for instance, is only 0.065mm thick but is as strong as a thick latex condom. Likewise, most SKYN condoms deliver thick condom strength in a thin condom design.

        How thick are thick condoms?

        There is no industry standard that defines condom thickness, so the actual thickness of thick condoms varies from brand to brand.

        In the latex condom range, those condoms with a thickness over 0.07mm are generally considered thick. Polyisoprene and polyurethane condoms with a thickness over 0.06mm are also considered thick because they provide the same resistance and safety as thick latex condoms. Most thick condoms range in the 0.08mm and 0.1mm, although there may be exceptions.

        Are thick condoms the same as extra safe condoms?

        Thick condoms aren’t necessarily extra safe condoms, but most extra safe condoms are thick. Thus, if you’re looking for a thick condom, you can check out the extra safe condom category too. Another name brands use to refer to thick condoms is extra strength, so keep that in mind when reading condom labels.

        When should I use thick condoms?

        Condoms have various thicknesses, and it could be easy to believe that a thicker condom is safer. However, a study involving 283 male couples in England found that the failure rate for thick condoms (0.074mm thick) compares to the failure rate for ultra-thin condoms (0.012mm thick) – 2.5% and 2.3%, respectively, with correct condom use.

        These results suggest that thin condoms provide the same protection against pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections as thick condoms. However, there may be situations when you want to use a thick condom.

        How to combat vaginal dryness and satisfy my partner?

        Vaginal dryness is one of the main sexual dysfunctions in women. An important thing to understand, however, is that a lack of natural lubrication has no impact on arousal. Women can feel aroused and enjoy sex even if they don’t get wet.

        The main issue when suffering from vaginal dryness is painful intercourse. The friction between the penis and vagina can irritate both partners. If you’re wearing a condom, your partner might still get hurt. Even if most condoms are lubricated, the amount of lubricant on them is hardly sufficient for making intercourse pleasurable.

        An easy way to fix this thing is with intimate lubricants. Water-based lubes are your best bet – these lubricants are generally gentle on the skin and prevent further irritation. Silicone lubricants are also great. They last longer and are more effective than water-based lubricants but could trigger yeast or bacterial infections in sensitive people.

        You should never use oil or petroleum-based products, though, if you’re using condoms. Oils and petroleum jelly can alter the structure of latex or synthetic rubber (polyisoprene), causing the condom to break.

        Lubricants aside, there are other ways to satisfy your partner. If vaginal dryness makes intercourse painful for her, invest more time in intercourse. Oral sex or masturbating each other are fun alternatives to actual sex. Get creative, and you’ll see there are plenty of ways to have a good time beyond the actual penetration.

        How to use thick condoms for anal sex?

        Using condoms for anal sex is like using them for any other kind of sex. The first step is choosing the right size condom. It is crucial the condom fits snugly around your penis without feeling painful or uncomfortable. Thick condoms are available in several sizes, so finding one that suits you shouldn’t be difficult.

        Once you have the right size condom, here’s how to use it:

        1. Unwrap the condom carefully, paying attention to not damage it. You should avoid opening the package with your teeth.
        2. Check that the condom is on the right side up (the condom rim should always be on the outside) and pinch the teat end to remove the air.
        3. Whilst keeping the teat pinched, place the condom on the head of your erect penis and use your other hand to unroll it all the way to the base of the penis.
        4. After intercourse, hold the condom fixed at the base of your penis and withdraw from your partner whilst your penis is still erect.
        5. Take off the condom, careful not to spill the semen, and dispose of it in the bin. Never flush your used condom down the toilet.

        When using condoms for anal sex, always apply additional lubricant before penetration. The anus doesn’t lubricate naturally, and the reduced slickness could damage the condom regardless of its thickness. As explained above, make sure to use a condom-friendly lubricant to avoid condom breakage. Here at Condoms.uk, we stock a wide range of condom-friendly lubes you can use with latex and non-latex condoms.

        Can I use thick condoms for oral sex?

        Yes, you can use any type of condom for oral sex. If the resistance of thinner condoms concerns you, know that a thick condom will still allow you to feel a wide range of sensations – as long as you’re using the right size condom.

        Using condoms for oral sex is crucial whenever you’re having fun with a new partner. Even if you’re in a committed relationship, you should still use condoms for oral sex if your partner hasn’t been tested for STDs.

        Keep in mind that some infections can be transmitted through oral sex. To make it more pleasurable for your partner, you can pair your favourite thick condoms with a flavoured lubricant.

        Most flavoured lubricants are made with edible ingredients and are safe to use for oral sex. Flavours vary from fruity fresh to decadently sweet, such as chocolate and vanilla. Some brands, such as SKYN, even make booze-flavoured lubes and condoms, so you truly are spoilt with choices.

        What brands make thick condoms?

        You can find thick condoms from most brands, the vast majority made of natural rubber latex. The main difference between these products is the condom size and thickness. Here are some of the most popular options:
