              What are ultra thin condoms?

              Ultra thin condoms are condoms made of very thin natural or synthetic latex. Most condoms in this category are thinner than 0.06mm, which is thinner than a strand of hair.

              This type of condom has been designed to enhance pleasure and intimacy between partners whilst still protecting you from pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.

              How thin are ultra thin condoms?

              Ultra thin condoms can vary in thickness from around 15 microns (0.015mm) to 55 microns (0.055mm). Considering that the average thickness of a strand of hair is 0.07mm, all ultra thin condoms are designed to be almost invisible.

              The main advantage of thin condoms is the efficient heat conduction. Thin condoms enhance the feeling of intimacy and, if sized right, they will deliver almost skin-to-skin sensations.

              The actual thickness varies from latex to non-latex condoms. The latter are made of polyisoprene, a synthetic type of rubber that is more elastic and stretchy than latex. Due to the different properties of the material, manufacturers can make thin polyisoprene condoms that have the same resistance as standard or thick latex condoms.

              What brands make ultra thin condoms?

              All condom manufacturers know that the main complaint people have in regard to condoms is the reduced sensations. Thus, most brands included in their range at least one ultra thin option. More often than not, you’ll be able to choose from two or more thin condoms from most brands. Here are some of the most popular choices.

              Are ultra thin condoms safe for anal sex?

              For a long time, specialists recommended the use of thick condoms for anal sex. However, recent research showed that there is no real reason to use thick condoms.

              In a study involving 283 male couples, scientists 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.

              The two most important things to successfully using thin condoms for anal sex are condom sizing and lubrication.

              Using the right size condom is essential regardless of the condom thickness. Even if latex is an elastic material, it can only stretch so much. If the condom is too tight, you’re risking that it will break during intercourse.

              In the case of anal sex, the greater friction and the lack of natural lubrication increase the chances of condom breakage if you’re using a too small condom.

              Apart from the risk of catching or transmitting an infection, the condom or pieces of it can get stuck inside your partner and could be very difficult to find and remove without a doctor’s help. Thus, you should measure your penis and buy condoms that have the right size.

              As far as lubrication is concerned, the anus doesn’t lubricate itself. Whilst most condoms are pre-lubricated, you might want to use additional lubricant for easier gliding. Using additional lubricant can also enhance pleasure and make anal sex much more enjoyable for your partner.

              Here at Condoms.uk, we stock a wide range of water and silicone-based anal lubricants you can choose from, all of which are condom-friendly.

              Can I use ultra thin condoms if my partner suffers from vaginal dryness?

              Yes. Using thinner condoms if your partner has vaginal dryness can actually make sex more enjoyable for her.

              Vaginal dryness is a condition that can affect women of all ages. It is more frequent in women after menopause, but if your partner is using hormonal contraceptives or suffers from hormonal imbalances, her body might fail to auto-lubricate.

              A common misconception is that vaginal dryness means a lack of arousal. However, sexual arousal has nothing to do with the absence of lubrication. Your partner may be aroused even if she’s not wet. And this is where intimate lubricants step in.

              Thin condoms and abundant lubricant can help your partner enjoy sex to the fullest – the experience could be uncomfortable or even painful otherwise. For the best results, you could even try extra lubricated condoms, such as Durex Thin Feel Extra Lubricated.

              What type of lubricants are compatible with ultra thin condoms?

              Ultra thin condoms are compatible with water-based and silicone-based lubricants. Because ultra thin condoms are made of natural rubber latex or polyisoprene, you should never use them with massage oils, body lotions, creams, or Vaseline because oils and petroleum products can damage the condom structure.

              Can ultra thin condoms cause latex allergy?

              If they are made of natural rubber latex, ultra thin condoms can cause allergic reactions if you’re allergic to latex.

              Latex allergy is a very rare condition which affects less than 1 in 1,000 people in the UK. Most people will only have mild symptoms, including rashes and irritation on the portion of skin that has come in contact with the latex condom.

              You may also have hives or moderate symptoms including rashes or hives on other areas of your body, coughing, sneezing, and water eyes.

              In rare cases, however, latex allergy can be life-threatening. Severe symptoms include breathing difficulty, arrhythmia, wheezing, and even loss of consciousness. Women usually have more severe symptoms after using a latex condom because the vaginal lining absorbs latex proteins faster than the penis skin.

              If you believe that you are allergic to latex, we recommend using non-latex condoms to stay on the safe side.
