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, but I’ve been also writing about one latex alternative recently.
A Japanese brand called Okamoto offers both latex and polyurethane condoms, and they’ve been popular for their thinness and quality. Since 1934, Okamoto condoms have been scientifically engineered to provide that real feeling while still protecting from pregnancy and STDs. Hours of research have been put into these condoms, and that research continues today.

Okamoto Latex condoms
In order to get the best feel, Okamoto has designed some of their 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 it 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.
Okamoto Crown Skinless Condom is probably their best known latex condom. This condom continually receives praise and high ratings in all major online stores.
Okamoto Beyond Seven
Okamoto Rubber Ltd., the company behind Okamoto condoms, has another brand under their wing – Okamoto Beyond Seven, which includes Beyond Seven Lightly Lubricated, Beyond Seven Mega Big Boy XL and Beyond Seven Studded. These condoms are also made out of Sheerlon and carry 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 – the Okamoto Zero One 0.01mm condom is just 0.01 mm thick (available on Worldcondoms.com)! Besides thinness, this polyurethane style also allows for the better transmission of heat between bodies, which is what creates the major sensation of sex.
Besides the 001 Zero One from the 001 series, Okamoto offers a few polyurethane condoms with a thickness of 0.02 mm, like the Okamoto Zero Two 002 and Okamoto 002 Hydro.
If you would rather stick with the latex, 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 (available on worldcondoms.cm). There are a few condom variants in the 003 Series, like the 003 Aloe, 003 Cool, 003 Platinum, 003 Real fit, 003 L-size and even the 003 Hyaluronic Acid.
Note that these ultra thin condoms mentioned above are hard to find in the US as they are not yet approved by the FDA. The ultra thin Okamoto condom that’s FDA approved and thus easier to find is Okamoto 0.04, which you might order from Amazon.com or Luckybloke.com.
Regardless of how thin the condom, 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 pleasure and less about the possible outcome of having a condom break on you.
Sheerlon Okamoto condoms cost the same as regular latex condoms, which is another added benefit to 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 Thick condom
Besides making ultra thin condoms Okamoto also has something to offer for those looking for a thicker than average condom.
Their Goku-Atsu and Super Goku-Atsu condoms are one of the thickest condoms on the market.
The latest series of Okamoto condoms is called WINK and includes 4 different types of condoms called Closer, Slider, Studded and Large. You can check them out here.
Other popular condoms from Okamoto
Being on the market for such a long time it’s no wonder that Okamoto has such a long selection of condoms and we couldn’t mention each and every one of them. Note that just a few of their condoms are readily available in the US in retail stores but you can still get a hold of some by using an online retailer like luckybloke.com or worldcondoms.com.
Few other popular Okamoto condoms include Okamoto Orchid, Roman Rose Pattern, Sensation and Okamoto Rilakkuma Honey which has a cute Rilakkuma wrapper.
Okamoto Condom Sizes
When it comes to condom sizes, Okamoto didn’t offer that much choice some years ago. All their condoms that were available on the US market were of average size or just slightly below average.
Luckily that has changed with the launch of Beyond Seven Mega Big Boy XL condoms which boasts with the nominal width of 57mm (2.24″) and head width of 72 mm (2.83″). Okamoto Wink Large that we mentioned above is also longer and wider than regular condoms with the width of 56mm (2.2″) and length between 7.5″ and 8.3″ inches.
Take a look at my condom size chart for exact measuring of popular Okamoto condoms, including Beyond Seven and WINK, as well as other brands.
