    Pretty much what the title says. I am curious because I've tried many condoms and have used only one where I could orgasm vaginally with my gf. I've tried the usual assortment. Mostly through ordering sample packs online. And the one I use now is the crown skinless condom. I initially thought it wouldn't fit because the measurements one websites say its pretty average sized, but it ended up fitting fine. Now its the only one I use and recently purchased a 60 pack i think. Just curious on others favorites.

    Lifestyles Snugger Fit. They do NOT slip off. I tried the Iron Grip but couldn't feel much through them and they are little more snug to the point they're uncomfortable for me. I'd like to try the Beyond 7 and I'll get a sample of those the next time I order condoms.

    my absolute fave condoms are pleasure plus, even though they're a bit pricey (about $14.00 USD for a 12 pack). they work great and i always recommend them. in the past i've used a variety trojans, lifestyles, and durex. however, with my BF we can only use trojan magnum XLs because that's all that'll fit him.

    I've had Lifestyles break on me not once, but twice. Both times, I couldn't feel anything, and then after a little while sex started feeling great, like usual. And then I pull out and there's just a ring around the base of my cock and no condom. No wonder it felt so good. :tongue: After that, I decided not to use them anymore. Glad they're working for you, though. :smile:

    Recently I tried the Trojan Magnum Thin and they're pretty decent. Overly tight at the bottom like Magnums always are, but hey--I've never had one break or slip or anything. My major complaint about them in general is the smell--far too rubbery.

    With an ex who was allergic to latex, we used Avanti. A bit on the snug side, but for non-latex, they were the best I could find at the time.

    I gotta try Magnum XL and see if that helps the red ring of doom around the base of my cock after sex. It hurts, man!

    mikey, you should try them! bryan says XLs feel better and they don't make the base of his cock feel tight/pressured. your cock will breathe easier :tongue:

    I will take that under consideration!

    I never realized they were wider at the base and just thought they were longer. Whoops. :redface:

    Of course, the best part, as always, will be the look the lady at Target gives me, and then my girlfriend, when we buy them. :rolleyes:

    I stopped using magnums. They would give me a red ring at the bottom and my gf hated the smell. The ones I use now have no smell.

    I've experimented with condoms the last few months. My findings...The Avanti-good heat transfer but not long enough. Skyns-good heat transfer but way to tight in the head area. Trustex xl-garbage. I do like the trojan lambskins feel great but stink to high heaven. I'm back to the Magnum Thins which feel great but still leave the ring. Maybe they'll start making the xl's in thin soon.

    I use magnum XL or any other large brand Life Style
    Many do not roll all the way down to the base of my dick anyway...bur as long as it gets most covered I can deal with it.

    Avantis are great though being less flexible, they wont work with a very skinny or very thick cock. I also needed to be very careful to leave enough slack in the tip because I burst a couple early on. No problem when I paid a little more attention though. To me they felt almost like fucking with no condom or maybe like fucking with a cock ring as for me they are tightish round the base. Women also seem to apreciate the difference, something worth remembering if every other guy she's fucked has been using smelly, rubbery, unnatural feeling latex :)

    I like Inspiral because they have that 'seashell' shape to them which gives more room for my head. Also, they seem to be a bit less constrictive than average condoms.

    Hefty Cinch Sack. It's the only thing big enough to fit.

    Magnum XL. I wish they would make some large polyurethane condoms, though.

    Magnum XL's cause they are the only "mainstream" condom that I can wear without making my penis raw. I tried to wear a regular sized lifestyle a few months ago and after sex I took it off and i was bleeding on the middle of my shaft. It was not fun and really gross...
