What is a revolutionary condom? We have brought together some of the most innovative concepts in condoms on one web page. If you have the desire to live a bit more dangerously, try one of our highly rated revolutionary condoms.
Clearly the concept of condoms is un-alterable by their very nature and it’s never going to change. They are a barrier method of contraception designed to prevent pregnancy and transmission of STIs. That’s it and all about it. But the name of the condom game has definitely changed and remains up for grabs – why shouldn’t revolutionary condoms continue to develop and hone their orgasm-inducing qualities further? What is nearly unbelievable is that the condom structure hasn’t changed since the ‘modern’ version of condoms came onto the market in 1920 – that’s more than a HUNDRED years ago! Surely we are due some updated condoms by now? Luckily the condom manufacturers agree. So as well as having some condoms that have been tweaked for the 21st century, there are also options out there that frankly you wouldn’t have expected to see anywhere apart from a sci-fi film before now. Who would have thought that condoms could be custom-fitted for example? Or Bluetooth enabled? Or vibrating? Surely these can only be figments of our condom imagination? But no, these (and more) have definitely arrived on the market. The focus has changed somewhat, from purely safety to safety AND pleasure.
Take the VA w.o.w. Condom Feminine for example with its miniature bullet vibrator that sits snugly against the clitoris. This is actually the first-ever condom designed with both pleasure and safety in its impressive spec. And then we have the invention of the ‘origami’ condom. Rather than one piece of latex being applied to the penis, the origami one has a fluted construction which means that it can contract and expand depending on the rhythm/pace of sex. It’s made out of silicone and aims to deliver more ‘direct, tactile sensation’.
These high-flying, ultra-modern condoms are certainly something of a revolution, but the term can also be used to describe anything that takes the condom above and beyond its basic use. Let’s look at some examples.
#1. The Lelo Hex Respect XL. These are strong, thin, large and promote the best sensation. They are specifically marketed as extra large condoms, which is something to bear in mind. The exact dimensions of this latex condom are 195mm for the length and 58mm for the width.
#2. The Lelo Hex condoms. They are described as ‘thin, strong’ and with ‘sensation’ specifically stated. So if it only does what it says on the tin then users are going to be happy, and if it goes to further pleasure-inducing lengths then that’s all well and good!
#3. Durex Mutual Climax condoms. Now, condoms that promote mutual climax definitely fall into the ‘revolutionary’ category. There’s been an ongoing quest to make condoms as thin as possible - whilst still providing secure protection – to reduce the lack of sensation, but to manufacture a condom for mutual climax? That’s a whole other level! You might be wondering how the condoms achieve this? Firstly, they have extra stimulation effects for her, being ribbed and dotted. Then they are manufactured out of performance enhancing (basically delaying) latex so the whole show isn’t over too quickly. That’s a hairline-width divide between containing semen effectively whilst still being able to feel everything like you would without wearing a condom. The Holy Grail, if you like. These are marketed as a regular size, 205mm in length and 56mm width.
#4. Durex Performance Intense. If we weren’t satisfied with one design of maximum pleasure-inducing condom, we now have the second type. The DPI condom follows exactly the same path as the DMC one, with nearly exactly the same spec. It’s good to know that Durex is looking out for our sex lives almost as much as we do ourselves!
#5. Durex Intense condoms. These are marketed as having a texture which promotes maximum sensation through being warming and tingling. Basically it gives stimulation in just about every way that a condom can.
And let’s not forget the biggest new kid on the block, the female condom. If that’s not a revolutionary one then we don’t know what is! Male condoms are straightforward to use, there isn’t really that much room for error once you’ve got the hang of what you’re doing. But the female condom is a slightly more tricky one because the apparatus isn’t so straightforward. Luckily, their design has been enhanced over the years to make these condoms as functional and pleasurable as possible and to be a good alternative to male condoms. A nice re-balancing act when it comes to taking mutual responsibility when the contraception issue comes up.
Ultimately, your condom choice comes down to what you prefer to use and knowing that these revolutionary condoms are available is an extra path to go down. If you aren’t quite ready for the ones boasting a mini bullet for female pleasure, then you can just stick with the more pedestrian options from the bigger name companies. Durex, for example, will see you right.
