Sensis condoms is a relatively new condom brand launched by Grove Medical LLC. They launched their first product – Sensis condoms with QuickStrips – in the first quarter of 2009. As they say, their product was inspired with all the improper application of regular condoms. Studies showed that 30-50% of consumers apply the condom incorrectly, and thus increase the risk of STDs.
UPDATE: It seems that Sensis condoms are no longer available. If you like their concept check out a similar condom brands – Wingman condoms or Unique Pull condoms (you can order Unique Pull here).
With their patented QuickStrips, which are rolled into each side of the condom, putting on a condom is extremely easy and fast.

Consumers are recognizing their creative design and innovative QuickStrips concept, so they are slowly making an impact in the condoms market share.
Besides applying the condom faster and easier, there is one more benefit – more lubricant will stay on the condom as you hold the strips rather than rolling the condom down with your hands.
And you can easily apply them in no light places.
I wont write any more about how easy and great this looks, because you have to see it to believe it.
Here is a video with some demonstrations:
Not bad, right?
The price is quite reasonable. They are offered in microdot-ribbed and thin varieties and you can get a 12 pack for just $9.95. If you want to try it, you can
order their condoms at Undercover condoms, or visit their official website to order free sample.
UPDATE: Sensis condoms are currently unavailable. Try Unique Pull condoms instead – click here.
Sensis really made a revolution with their Quick strips concept. Great condoms!
The concept is remarkable (Kudos to Sensis!!!) , however, not particularly realistic in terms of the other steps needed to consistently (and correctly) apply a condom.
First, the style of the penis model (used most-likely to simply model the product as a probe vs. penis shaft) does not portray a true penis shape nor accurately helps explain the appropriate method to executing this process that includes other important key points. For example: Per the CDD, this is how you put on a condom:
How to Use a Condom Consistently and Correctly:
Use a new condom for every act of vaginal, anal and oral sex throughout the entire sex act (from start to finish). Before any genital contact, put the condom on the tip of the erect penis with the rolled side out. ”
If the condom does not have a reservoir tip, pinch the tip enough to leave a half-inch space for semen to collect. Holding the tip, unroll the condom all the way to the base of the erect penis.
After ejaculation and before the penis gets soft, grip the rim of the condom and carefully withdraw. Then gently pull the condom off the penis, making sure that semen doesn’t spill out.
Wrap the condom in a tissue and throw it in the trash where others won’t handle it.
If you feel the condom break at any point during sexual activity, stop immediately, withdraw, remove the broken condom, and put on a new condom.
Ensure that adequate lubrication is used during vaginal and anal sex, which might require water-based lubricants. Oil-based lubricants (e.g., petroleum jelly, shortening, mineral oil, massage oils, body lotions, and cooking oil) should not be used because they can weaken latex, causing breakage.”
“The failure of condoms to protect against STD/HIV transmission usually results from inconsistent or incorrect use, rather than product failure. Inconsistent or nonuse can lead to STD acquisition because transmission can occur with a single sex act with an infected partner.
Incorrect use diminishes the protective effect of condoms by leading to condom breakage, slippage, or leakage. Incorrect use more commonly entails a failure to use condoms throughout the entire sex act, from start (of sexual contact) to finish (after ejaculation). ”
… With all of that said, applying a condom correctly requires more than just a genius idea. It requires EDUCATION to avoid HIV/STD transmission/aquisition. Sensis, as said before, has created something wonderful and I expect the branding video to be a marketing tool knowing that much education wont come from that, however, some things you just have to take your time with to ensure proper usage. Condoms, my pals, are one of those things …
All the best :)
