EXS City Mix Sensitive Condoms (6 Pack) 6 out of 10 (1 review) Write your own review
Thin Slim Jims
Reviewed: 30 January 2011 by toycar69, a Straight Married Male
Styling: The packaging:
This is a slim silver box, with a graffiti-style logo. Inside this, the condoms are individually wrapped in circular foil packets, each with a different design. It definitely looks a lot cooler to carry in your pocket than a regular Durex or Mates condom. We're off to a good start.
Technical bit: Dimensions
On the LH website, you can see the dimensions of these condoms are:
circ: 2.15" or 54.61 mm
length: 7.4" or 190mm
Okay, so apart from the length, that means next to nothing to me. The only way for me to comment, is by comparing to other "common" condoms you may have tried.
So, Mates Natural:
length: 7" or 177.8mm or 185mm
thickness 0.065um or 0.07um
circ: 56 - 52, 63mm
length: 8" 205mm
This is where things get even more confusing. The Mates and Durex condoms have a flared head area, which is why we see the 63mm measurement on the Durex. The EXS doesn't have this, and is shaped more like a tube.
What difference does any of this make?
Well, it all depends on the size and shape of your penis. Most guys have probably noticed that different brands of condom fit them better than others, so there is no right or wrong here. All of these condoms are long enough to fit most men, but there are other measurements needed to make the fit perfect. The Durex is wider at the base, and narrows before widening for the head.
The Mates I believe are straight until they widen for the head.
Anyway, size-wise these EXS condoms are very similar to Mates Natural, but without the flared head. The ring at the base is a little smaller than Durex Fetherlite, and felt a little tighter than the Mates Natural, but I've not been able to find any measurements to back this up.
Trying it on:
The first thing I noticed was that the foil wrapper was difficult to tear. That was when I realised that there are tear-off marks in a couple of places around the wrapper. Unlike the usual squares, a circular wrapper means you have to feel around for the mark. With a square one, you can remember where along one edge to tear, which could be helpful if you're putting it on in the dark.
Using the correct tear-off point, the wrapper comes apart easily, letting you get to the condom. Looking at the condom, you can believe it is slightly thinner than the Mates condom, as the latex is slightly clearer, although still a pink colour. As someone who has put on a fair few condoms in the past, it went on easily enough and rolled down without any problems.
Now for the actual fit. I mentioned before about the different shapes of condoms, and this was the point I noticed it. There was no flare at the head of the condom, and with the size and shape of my penis, this was quite noticeable. The condom felt a little tight around the head, and the normal shape was being flattened somewhat by the condom. This isn't to say it was uncomfortable or hurt, just that I could notice it.
Once "in use" we noticed a slight difference in sensation to our regular condoms. It's not much, but there is slightly more feeling and body heat transferred through the condom, which is a good thing. For us, this was balanced out by the head of my penis being squeezed slightly, which reduced the friction on the inside of the vagina.
These condoms are also coated in a long-lasting silicone lubricant, which is a good thing. As regular lube users, we didn't really notice the difference, as we always add lube before we start. Note though, this would not be good if you are intending to use one of these on a silicon-based toy, as it can cause the toy to melt.
These are pretty good condoms. We didn't have any problems with splitting, and the sensation was good. The only issue for me was the fit, but that is individual to every man. Value for money is reasonable, as they are the same price as Mates. I'd be interested to see if they become available in larger packs.
- Good feeling, stylish wrappers, silicone lube.
- Circular wrapper can be fiddly. No head shape, and maybe a little narrow.
- Bottom line
- A good sensitive condom. If this fits you well, then it's excellent.
