As of yet, there are three materials that can make a huge difference in your sexual encounters. And, regardless of the designs and texturing, the material of choice is sometimes more important in capturing the natural feel.
Without further ado, here are the best condom materials for a natural, pleasurable feel, as well as a buyer’s guide on how to pick the best condom for you and your partner.
Lambskin condoms are the oldest type of condoms known to man. Their design is rather interesting as it features pores. Therefore, much like human skin, these condoms allow some small particles to get through.
These condoms aren’t known for their superior level of protection against certain viruses and STIs. However, they are efficient in preventing pregnancy since the pores are so small, that sperm doesn’t pass through them.
Back to the feel of the condom, a lambskin condom is rather thin. Because it’s thin and made of a natural material, it will offer a more natural feel. Its thinness also allows for a better heat transfer. The heat transfer is responsible for most of the sensations you feel during sex, hence the natural full sexual sensation of lambskin condoms.
Keep in mind that apart from the manufacturing process, the natural feel and full sexual sensation makes lambskin condoms the most expensive type out there.
Polyisoprene condoms are another contender for the best condoms for providing full sexual sensation. This is a newer concoction, made from non-latex synthetic rubber sheaths. The rubber sheaths are durable, very elastic, and have a feel that’s close to what you may have experienced with latex condoms.
Because of its familiar feel but somewhat thinner nature, polyisoprene may feel better as an alternative to the classic latex condom. It’s also good at preventing unwanted pregnancy and STIs, though still not really superior to latex.
Another advantage of a polyisoprene condom is that it can be used in water and with water and silicone-based lubricants. This is something that most latex condoms won’t handle well. On top of that, polyisoprene condoms can be used by people with latex allergies.
Being able to have sex free of stress is the key to full sexual satisfaction.
Polyurethane condoms are almost plastic condoms. The material they’re made from is similar to plastic, though not as tough or uncomfortable as it might seem at first. Most of these condoms are completely see-through and relatively wider than most latex condoms.
Therefore, it’s hard to imagine ever feeling constrained, even though polyurethane condoms are not as elastic as latex condoms.
There are two design characteristics that make these some of the best condoms for providing full sexual sensation: a thin barrier and superior heat conductivity. The first characteristic is a no-brainer.
Everyone knows that thinner condoms offer less resistance, restrict the nerve endings less, and give more feeling. The latter means that you can get an even more authentic sensation during sex.
How to Pick the Right Condom
It’s worth keeping in mind that the best condoms for providing full sexual sensation won’t always be the same for men and women. While most men indeed prefer thinner condoms, some women need a bit of extra help to get full satisfaction.
Ribbed or studded condoms can sometimes provide extra pleasure, at least to women. Since not all penises have pronounced veins, it sometimes makes sense to use a ribbed condom to make sure the vaginal walls are better stimulated.
In some cases, men can also benefit from ribbed condoms. There are condoms that are ribbed on the inside. During friction, more nerve endings and sensitive areas of the penis get stroked in a pleasant way, providing an enhanced sexual experience. Just be cautious when using them since they can do too good of a job for some men.
Once you’ve experimented with various textures, you should have a pretty good idea of what suits you best. However, texture isn’t the only thing that matters, so let’s talk size. How should a condom feel in order to give you a stimulating and exhilarating experience?
Obviously, you’ll want a condom that’s not too tight but not too loose either. However, a bit of tightness is preferred over a loose condom. The reason behind it has to do with how the penis works. Having a stimulating experience is closely related to how much blood is pumped into your penis and how long it stays there.
The more pumped your penis is the more sensitive it will be during sex. A slightly tight condom can help trap the blood there longer, also helping maintain the erection longer. This might result in an enhanced sexual experience.
However, the condom should feel slightly tighter around the base of the penis and not the head. Squeezing the head too much could cause you to lose sensation.
Do Latex Condoms Reduce Tactile Sensation
Latex condoms are the most recognizable and readily available condoms. They’re relatively cheap to make, come in all shapes, sizes, and textures, and are considered quite good at preventing STIs and pregnancy.
However, while latex condoms may excel at variety, they’re not the best for providing a natural feel. Certainly not when compared with the other types of condoms mentioned above. And yet, it’s a highly subjective matter, since not every man and woman will prefer the same things during sex.
That being said, some latex condoms will give you a pleasurable feeling during sex, maybe even more so than during unprotected sex. Latex condoms also come as ribbed, thin, ultrathin, and in various other designs. Therefore, it is likely that you can find a latex condom brand and style that satisfies both you and your partner.
Better Things Are Still to Come
If you’ve already tried the current options and are not satisfied, know that there’s no need to despair just yet. More and better things are likely on the horizon. Condom research has not been abandoned. And, even though latex may be getting most of the attention nowadays, thinner, more comfortable, safer, and more pleasurable condoms are being developed.
