    So was browsing this morning to stock up on things for me and the OH and when selecting our normal go to condoms (50 shades of grey ultra thin condoms) http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=26096
    Found that these are going to be discontinued!? Why would they discontinue such a popular item??
    Needless to say I felt I had to stock up but feel so disappointed that they would stop these.

    Anyone have any ideas why they would??

    I guess some products are discontinued to make room for new ones. I have a few things that I absolutely love.....and they've been discontinued. At the end of the day it gives us opportunities to try new items instead of just sticking to our usual type of purchase x

    Just because they are your favourites doesn't mean they are globally popular; my fav mouth wash is no longer stocked by the supermarkets.

    I had I issue with the order and spoke to a customer service advisor she said there were popular too and she wasn't sure why they are being discontinued but it seemed strange to her. Just find it really strange.

    Lots of the fifty shades range is being discontinued. Maybe a rebrand for the next movie?

    +1, just what I was thinking.

    If you want a thin condom, these are a great bet. I personally think they feel a lot thinner and more natural than the FSOG ones (and they don't smell funny like the FSOG ones either):

    And if you buy them now you'll even get a free box of the FSOG ones. Seems a great time to try them!

    I was going to recommend these too, for the FSOG ones you need to spend £10. We're trying a few different ones at the minute. Always on the look out for better ones as they're our only option of contraception 😔

    If you have to consider another brand Pasante are my favourite. They are the only brand that have never split on me, not once.

    I was going to suggest these as I'm pretty sure they are the same condom in different packaging (having tried both)

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=25369

    But it looks like they are being discontinued too, so I'm not much help, sorry.

    I'm very much looking forward to the second one

    +2, tbf whatever they replace them with will probably be the same actual product, just a rebrand, so I bet you'll still be able to buy them

    That's the 3rd addition isn't it?
