What Are The Best Condoms You Can Find On The Market?

condom testing
Choosing the best condom is a rather subjective thing. I already wrote how choosing the best fit according to your size increases the condom effectiveness.

Therefore, a condom size is the first parameter you should consider when searching for the best condom. Read on how to find your correct size, if you haven’t already.

Condom thickness is another factor, and we discussed why some would prefer thin condoms and others find thick condoms better suited to their needs.

You should keep in mind that some condoms don’t protect from sexually transmitted diseases (for example lambskin condoms). Some condoms can’t be used with oil-based lubricants (latex condoms) and some can (condoms made of polyurethane).

Besides from these factors, there are many other subtle differences which give the advantage to some condoms.

Although different persons might have different needs, various polls showed that people on average do prefer some condoms more than the others. In this post, I will present you with some of the best condoms from several different categories, based on the results from the Annual Condom award, customer feedback, reviews and ratings, as well as my own research and experience.

Best condoms in 2022

Let’s start with three condoms which are getting the highest ratings in the last 15 or more Annual Condom Awards ran by condomdepot.com, online condom store. Their Official Condom Tester Pool usually consists of 250 people which have to choose from the sample of 40 condoms that received the highest online ratings.

Best Buy Regular Sized Ultra Thin Condom

Okamoto Crown Skinless Skin is the 19th time best condom winner and this speaks for itself. It’s a quality condom from a well-known Japanese manufacturer, offered at a very competitive price. One of my personal favorites as well.

  • Shaft Width: 2.05″

These three have been on the market for a long time (17+ years!) and usually receive high customer ratings. They are also very affordable so they are the best buy for those who are looking for thin latex condoms.

However, the condom industry did advance in recent years and a lot of these new products are not yet available in certain online stores, not to mention local pharmacies (as they are yet to receive an FDA approval).

Let’s see which other condoms are worth your time, divided into different categories.

Best condoms for the first time

Trojan ENZ Condoms

You want to be extra cautious for your first time. The most important thing you need to check is what kind of condom size should you use. Assuming its size will suit you, a basic and reliable condom like Trojan ENZ will surely do the job.

My old recommendation was Durex Extra Safe, but considering it’s not available on the US market, I feel Trojan ENZ is a worthy replacement.

Best condoms for pleasure

Kimono Textured condom replaced Trojan Twisted Pleasure and Lifestyles Dual Pleasure in this category as the latter are getting harder to find.
Guys will like it because it’s thinner than other ribbed condoms, girls will like it for the ribs and dots which increase friction.

Best condoms for lasting longer

Durex Performax Intense Condoms
If you finish too soon, you could try climax delay condoms. These condoms have a small addition of benzocaine, which will slightly numb your feeling/sensation and thus allow you to have longer intercourse.

Best condoms for women (best female or internal condoms)

Reality Female Condom FC2
fc2 female condomThe female condom (or now called internal condom) is a condom made to be worn by women on the inside of the body and it helps to prevent sexually transmitted diseases, as well as unintended pregnancy. The new generation FC2 condom is made from nitrile, it is softer than the old FC polyurethane condom and also cheaper. Since June 2017 this condom is rarely available in pharmacies and online as the company moved to a prescription distribution model. This means you can get them for free if you have a prescription from a doctor. They can also be found found at STI clinics. Update: now also available at fc2.us.com/buy-now

Best thin condoms

Worth considering: skyn-elite-min
If you want to try a non-latex thin condom your best bet is Lifestyles SKYN Elite, which is 10% thinner than old polyisoprene condoms.

These are best rated thin condoms on the market which are also FDA approved. If you’re looking for something even thinner try some of the new ultra-thin condoms I’ve talked about before you make the final verdict.

Best large condoms

Beyond Seven Mega Big Boy

Best flavored condoms

Trustex Assorted Flavors Extra Strength Condoms
Buy Trustex Assorted Colors Non-Lube Condoms
It’s hard to pinpoint just one flavor as the best one as we all have different tastes. For this year’s Valentine Day, guys from HuffingtonPost.com got a bunch of differently flavored condoms, put them on bananas and invited all their employees to test them and pick the best one (btw. that’s an interesting idea for team building :) ).

As you can see in this video, most of them picked the Chocolate flavor as the best one (but it was a tough call). Houstonpress.com ran a similar contest and their winner was Strawberry (and Chocolate was at the end of the list!).

That’s why I’m suggesting you try a flavored variety pack and discover firsthand which flavor (if any) is your pick.
