Given that condoms play such an important role in preserving our health as well as the prevention of unwanted pregnancy, we all want nothing but the highest quality condoms. That is why most people stick to the well-known, trusted brands such as Durex, Trojan, Lifestyles.
However, there are a number of other brands, which have established their position in the market by virtue of their unique image and proven quality. In today’s post we’ll present just a few of those long-familiar condom brands along with a brief overview of their history. So, without further ado.
This brand doesn’t need much introduction. It is one of the leading condom manufacturers, with a legacy that spans over 75 years. Durex has filmed countless ads and TV commercials, holds approximately 22% of the global branded condom market, and are present in more than 140 countries worldwide. The brand name ‘Durex’ was registered back in 1929, and the name was derived from these three words: Durability, Reliability and Excellence.
Few well-known condoms by Durex include: Durex Enhanced Pleasure, Durex Sensi Thin, Durex Avanti Bare, Durex Extra Strength, and Durex Sensitive.
Update: I’ve compiled a detailed list of Durex condoms with their sizes and descriptions. Check it out here.
