Trojan Supra Condoms Review
Posted on March 17th, 2009 in Bedroom Bling, Reviews
I’ve been curious about trying polyurethane male condoms for quite some time. V refers to them as her special occasion condoms, as they are a bit pricey for everyday use. Well worth the money however, because these puppies are smoooooooooooth.
Trojan has always been my brand of choice, so when I saw that they had rolled out with Supra Microsheer Polyurethane condoms, I jumped on the chance to try them out.
If you haven’t tried a polyurethane condom before, they are different from latex in several ways. Less stretchy, but thinner, and provide a more natural feel. They are also odor-free, so none of that funky rubber smell. Despite the fact that they are less stretchy, we found them to be less constricting than their latex counterparts.
Polyurethane condoms, despite being thinner, are stronger than latex. They are also less susceptible to deterioration, and they transmit heat more effectively, which I think contributes to the more natural feel.
Jack and I really liked these condoms. They didn’t slip, or break. I didn’t get pregnant either, so that was a bonus It felt more like going bareback than any latex condom we’ve used. Polyurethane also provides a nice alternative for people with latex allergies.
As they haven’t been on the market as long as latex, they haven’t been as extensively tested for STI protection. There is still some debate on exactly how effective they are. If your only concern is pregnancy prevention, these condoms will not disappoint you. If you are with a new partner, or you are uncertain of your own STI status, I would recommend that you stick to latex.
Both silicone and water-based lubricants are safe for use with polyurethane. In fact, even oil-based lubricant will not degrade them. Trojan Supra’s are pre-lubed with silicone lubricant already, so please be mindful if you decide to use one on your sex toys. Silicone lubricant will ruin your silicone toys!
Please note that I do not rate condoms on their effectiveness to prevent pregnancy or disease transmission. I assign ratings based on sensation, strength, fit, and overall experience.
