LifeStyles Skyn Condom Review

Posted on November 10th, 2009 in Bedroom Bling, Reviews

Toy Lust TuesdaysSome weeks back I was perusing the “Family Planning” section of a local drugstore, as I am wont to do.  Even though I now enjoy the luxury of going bareback with both of my favorite males, I like to keep up on the latest and greatest in pregnancy prevention and safe sex practices.

I came across a new offering by LifeStyles, which is one of my two favorite brands.  Skyn condoms are revolutionary in that they are made of neither latex nor polyurethane.  Instead the material used is called polyisoprene, which was originally developed from a  purified form or natural rubber, but is now manufactured synthetically.  Similar in nature to latex, but without inducing nasty allergies.

Skyn CondomPure Pleasure was generous enough to send me a handful of these condoms for testing, which Jack and Aiden were quite fortunately willing to help me out with.

The opinions were mixed.  Jack found them “better than latex, but not as good as polyurethane”.  The sensation was better than standard condoms, but still not as comfortable or as smooth as Avanti or Supra.

Aiden, on the other hand, found them painfully restrictive.  Being…on the larger side, shall we say, pretty much anything ‘standard sized’ is uncomfortable for him however.  So if your penis is bigger than average, and you tend to find regular condoms too tight, these won’t provide the sort of fit you are looking for.

They were sturdy enough, they didn’t break or tear, and we tested them pretty thoroughly, LOL. These condoms are not as thin as polyurethane, but they are stretchier (if you’ve used polyurethane you’ll know what I mean). They have been FDA approved for STI and pregnancy prevention, but as with any new material, there likely haven’t been a lot of longer-term studies done, so I encourage you to do a little research of your own before selecting the right type of condom for you.

    thank gods for men with penises of average girth for testing out new condom materials. it always seems to take a while until companies make a variety of styles in larger sizes too. if only there were some condom that fit everyone, felt good, and did the job it’s intended for…

    our current frustration is that we found one that both of us like, but it’s only carried a few places, and the large size always seems to be sold out. good to know about this one, if only i can avoid it :S
