Warming condoms? You’d be forgiven for taking a second glance at these ones - isn’t the very act of sexual intercourse hot enough? Not for everyone it turns out, hence the development of these rather clever condoms. The condom market has increased and developed exponentially and the range of choice that people have these days is frankly impressive. Big ones, small ones, pre-lubricated ones, latex ones, non-latex ones, flavoured ones, glow in the dark ones, ones especially for gay men – it’s impressive. And warming condoms fit right into this sophisticated condom market.
What makes them warm?
There aren’t any clever tricks here, just a tried and tested method and it’s done through a special, warming effect lubricant. And there you have it.
Why would I want these?
That has a simple answer too – it brings a rather superior experience to not just the condom wearer but both partners, which as you can imagine results in far more pleasure. It’s great that by sharing the sensations, it also creates a stronger bond between partners, it’s a totally different feeling and experience. They are also often deep ribbed which adds to the warming sensation during penetrative pleasure. It could be said that this is one of the best effects of warming condoms.
Can they get too warm?
You have no need to worry on that score, there is no risk of any burning sensation either directly on the skin or on the wider genital area. It’s just a nice, extra sensation that means that you can experiment and mix it up in the bedroom. Who doesn’t want that from time to time?
Are they as safe as standard condoms?
A reasonable question, but no worries here either. Warming condoms are made from natural, high quality rubber. The warming bit is all about the lube and has no effect on their safety. These condoms will keep you protected against STIs and unwanted pregnancy just like any other high quality condom.
Which are the best ones to buy?
Unsurprisingly, Trojan are pretty much the go to brand for this type of condom. Well, a lot of condoms actually. They are one of the oldest condom brands and they’ve been market leaders for 90 years – and there’s obviously been a huge amount of change since then as the years have passed, almost a century! It’s even nudging itself into a worldwide favourite brand. So what that tells us is that Trojan has a huge amount of experience in the condom market, as you can imagine. Your trust will not be misplaced. So, what are your options?
- Trojan Pleasures Fire and Ice. These are on the smaller side and a great choice for those who prefer a snug fit. The measurements are: 0.07mm thick, 53 mm wide and 190mm in length. A very comfortable condom that hugs the penis and provides seamless penetration.
- Trojan Pleasures Ecstasy Fire and Ice. Another great choice for warming condoms, these ones make comfort second to none. Slightly larger than their Fire and Ice comrades, their measurements come in at: 200mm for length, the head and the base of the penis are 58mm and the width at the base is 53mm. It creates that oh-so-good warming and tingling sensations through a dual action lube and also a textured shaft. These condoms are taking no chances in their quest to provide maximum pleasure. In case you were wondering why this one has a 5* rating, you have your answer right here!
- Fire and Ice. This one is designed for those who are looking for a larger fit in their condom. It has all the traditional advantages of a standard condom, i.e. reliability and high quality. It makes its name through a new lube that will withstand even the most vigorous thrusting. It has an ultra secure fit at the base because it’s tapered in its design. Its measurements are: 64mm at the width of the head, 54mm measurement for the shaft and base of the head, 200mm in length and its thickness is, rather impressively, just 0.07mm. This is a great overall choice if you want something on the slightly larger side.
Moving onto a different brand, Pasante also has a lot to offer with its warming sensation condom. The difference with these ones is that they are ribbed for extra stimulation and pleasure. They are made from natural, high quality rubber and have a non-spermicidal lubricant already applied for the smoothest feeling around. In addition, they have a little exciting extra – the teat at the end of the condom is transparent. Who doesn’t want to see all the action?!
So if you’re looking for a different sensation (perhaps a bit more excitement in the bedroom?!) then you have a range of choices to select from. If you’re not sure exactly what you’re after then you’re in luck, there are bulk packs available for experimentation.
