A great health risk is posed by unprotected sexual intercourse. Apart from sexual abstinence, the condom is the sole contraceptive method that prevents the spread of STIs as well. 

This it does not only for the prevalent HPV virus but for the much rarer HIV virus as well.

The ease of use of condoms along with the peace of mind it offers about its effectiveness makes it the most common type of contraceptive method.

Buyer's Guide: How to Purchase Male Condoms

If you are looking for a means to avoid sexually transmitted infections as well as prevent unwanted pregnancies, then the male condom is your weapon of choice.

Technically speaking the prophylactic or the male condom is a type of pouch or sheath of latex or polyisoprene or polyurethane or such flexible material that is placed over an erect penis. It functions by trapping sperm inside it during sexual intercourse.

As a result, the sperm is unable to reach the female mucous membrane and, in the process, prevent pregnancies as well as arrest the spread of sexually transmitted infections or STIs.

Types of Condoms

Picking a condom from the several types on offer in the market can be at times a little bit tricky. One good pointer as to what type of condom you want is to carefully think whether you are looking for a contraceptive or something akin to a sex toy.

If you are looking for something belonging to the former category you will be well advised to ensure that it is approved by international health authorities for the same. Another vital thing to keep in mind while buying a condom is its expiration date.

The different types of condoms in the market right now are as follows:

Glow-in-the-Dark Condoms

If you are looking for a condom that would serve good both as a playful as well as contraceptive condom then glow-in-the-dark condoms are what you asked for as they are usually certified by bodies like the FDA of the US. This type of condom should be exposed to light before use which allows them to glow.

The condom is built up of three non-toxic layers. The outer and inner latex layers contain a layer of pigment safe for humans that begins glowing.

Flavored Condoms

There are a number of flavored condoms in the market which have a great taste apart from an aroma which does not fail to tantalize. Such condoms are found in a wide variety of flavor types like in the taste of various fruits, drinks, and even food.

The color often matches the flavor of the condom and the primary purpose of this condom type is to make oral sex spicier while wearing them. The strength and the level of protection provided by this condom type is good and they are often approved by regulatory bodies.

However, one word of caution, if you are going to use this condom type for vaginal intercourse then you should ensure that they are free from sugar as the latter can cause yeast infections in the vagina by affecting the pH balance of the same.

Textured or Studded Condoms

This type of condom is specially textured and shaped for elevating the sexual pleasure of intercourse. This optimization for pleasure may be either for the male or the female or even for both which is determined by the location of the ribs and the raised studs.

Some varieties of such condoms have two distinct ribbed sections located at the base and the top which makes up for stimulation for females. Hundreds of raised studs placed on the outside or inside can add to the sexual pleasure of females and males respectively.

Males can also derive increased pleasure from the wide and bulb-shaped tips of such condoms which let the nerve endings remain at their sensitive best making for better sexual pleasure.

Warming Condoms

This type of condom too heightens and increases the sexual sensation. It is made of a thinner variety of latex and typically contains a warming lubricant which presses into action once it comes in contact with the moisture of the body.

The sensations created by such condoms are gently warm and enhance the sexual pleasure of both the parties.

Pleasure-Shaped

This type of condom is larger than the usual variety and has tips shaped like a pouch. The wide tips stimulate the nerve endings of the penis tip more resulting from the increased friction. A winding twisting shape facilitates more vigorous sexual action besides heightening the sensitivity of both men as well as women.

Colored Condoms

You can find condoms for almost every color of the rainbow. There are even dual colored as well as tricolored condoms matching the national colors of major western countries. The dual colored condoms are appropriate for certain festivities and holidays.

This type of condom is quite effective for preventing pregnancy as well as ensuring that the partners do not end up transmitting STIs.

Sensis Condoms with QuikStrips

This is the first condom tech to have been approved by the FDA of the US in over 50 years. They are made up of latex and are lubricated as well. This type of condoms features QuickStrips which work akin to band-aid pull-off tabs.

This helps you in putting on the condom which is a very common cause of condom failure. This condom type is easy to put on by virtue of the ridges which you can feel and pull down very quickly and in the right manner.

It is available in both micro as well as thin-dot ribs, is shaped like a contour and the bumps, dots, and rings with ribs together serve to enliven the sexual life of both men and women.

Tingling Pleasure Condoms

If you are looking for an intense, tingling experience while having sexual intercourse then the tingling pleasure condoms are meant for you. The ones manufactured by Durex have tingling lubricant that is spearmint flavored and safe for humans along with a minty scent.

Edible Condoms

This is a type of condom that does not provide any sort of contraceptive protection or prevent sexually transmitted diseases. This type of condom is put on and then can be physically consumed. They typically come in packs of four and come in a wide flavor variety.

Why Use Male Condoms?

There are several reasons behind the popularity of the male condom as a means for safe and playful sex. Some of the most important ones are as follows:

  • The ease with which condoms can be used and their affordability have contributed significantly to their popularity. Not to mention that they are really easy to get hold of both online as well as offline.
  • They let people control contraception according to their wishes. There is no need to visit doctors or other medical personnel.
  • They are easy to carry with discretion.
  • It is very unlikely that you will have a side effect due to wearing a condom unless you are suffering from an allergy or are generally intolerant of the condom constituting material.
  • You do not have to take any sort of hormone or anything like that.
  • You can stop using them as and when you wish.
  • They provide a high degree of effectiveness as a contraceptive method when used the right way and on every sexual occasion. In fact, their effectiveness in this respect stands at a mighty 98%.

Tips for Using Male Condoms

If you use condoms properly you increase its effectiveness in contraception by leaps and bounds. Some tips to help you ensure the same are as follows:

  • You should put on the condom before you had any type of oral or vaginal contact.
  • It is important to use lubrication of the right variety and amount in order to ensure a more satisfactory sexual intercourse. While using condoms it is recommended that you use water-based lubricants. If you fail to use lubricants, you increase the chances of damaging your condom. Fatty substances like Vaseline might cause damage to condoms built up of latex. The same holds ground for vaginal creams. Ensure that the vaginal cream you purchase for the female partner does not damage the lining of the condom.
  • You must put on the condom in the right manner. Ensure that your penis is erect and then place it at its tip and keep holding it with one hand and unroll the condom to the base using the other hand. If the condom fails to unroll this may be an indication that you are using a damaged or old condom or perhaps you are using it inside out. Replace the condom if anything of this sort happens.
  • If the condom does not have a reservoir at the top by design, it is necessary to leave a gap of 1-2 cm at the condom tip where you can retain the sperm.
  • Make it a point to use the condom throughout the period of sexual intercourse until you ejaculate.
  • You should remove the condom while your penis is erect. If this is not the case, you should hold the base firmly while you withdraw the condom from the body of your partner.
  • Make it a point not to use condoms stored poorly like being exposed highly warm or cold temperatures or ones that are damaged or the ones that have passed their expiry date.
  • If your condom slid down or tore up during sex, then this can lead to an unwanted pregnancy. It would be advisable to use emergency contraceptive pills in such cases. Though the max limit of time to take the pill is 120 hours, you would be well advised to ensure that the female partner takes it at the soonest.
