Condoms are a dime a dozen these days. Whether you get them from your local family health center or a pharmacy, there are several different styles of condoms that are readily available for you to purchase. Latex condoms don’t need any introduction and I’ve been also writing about one latex alternative recently.
Japanese brand, called Okamoto, offers both latex and polyurethane condoms, and they’ve been getting really popular for their thinness and quality. Since 1934, Okamoto condoms have been scientifically engineered to provide that real feeling while still protecting you from pregnancy and STDs. Hours of research have been put into these condoms, and that research continues today.
In order to get the best feel, Okamoto has designed condoms made out of Sheerlon, a special form of latex. Sheerlon is about half the thickness of the average latex condom, yet it doesn’t sacrifice any of the protection or quality that regular latex has always offered. Both sensitivity for him and her, as well as the reliability of Sheerlon have made it one of the most trusted materials that Okamoto condoms utilize today. Sheerlon was invented with condoms in mind, and is meant to give you a silkier feel that almost feels like you aren’t actually wearing any protection. Additionally, Sheerlon is odorless, which gets rid of that annoying latex smell that has plagued your sex life for years.
You may have heard about their best seller Okamoto Crown Skinless Condom, which is probably their best known condom. This condom continually receives praise and high ratings in all major online stores.
Okamoto Beyond Seven
Okamoto Rubber Ltd., company behind Okamoto condoms, has another brand under their wing – Okamoto Beyond Seven, which includes Beyond Seven Lightly Lubricated, Beyond Seven Aloe and Beyond Seven Studded. These condoms are also made out of Sheerlon, with Okamoto’s high production and quality standards.
Okamoto thinnest condoms
Okamoto is also popular for their extremely thin condoms made of polyurethane. They offer one of the thinnest condoms on the market – Okamoto 0.02 EX Polyurethane condom is just 0.02 mm thick! Besides thinness this polyurethane style also allows for the better transmission of heat between bodies, which is what creates the major sensation of sex.
If you would rather stick with the latex, than you’ll be happy to hear that they also carry the thinnest latex condom, which is just 0.03 mm thick – Okamoto 0.03 Condom.
Regardless of how thin the condom may be, they say there is no need to worry about sacrificing quality. Each Okamoto condom is tested to make sure that they meet or exceed regulatory control, which allows you to worry more about the pleasure and less about the possible outcome of having a condom break on you.
Those Sheerlon Okamoto condoms cost the same as regular latex condoms, which is another added benefit for giving yourself the better feel of a thinner condom. However, if you want to try their thinnest condoms, you’ll have to pay a few bucks extra.
Okamoto Condom Sizes
When it comes to sizes Okamoto doesn’t offer that much choice, unfortunately. All their condoms that are available on the US market are of average size or just slightly below average. Take a look at my condom size chart for their exact measuring.
