Super detailed explanation of condoms
First of all, condoms are divided into codes. Yes, condoms have codes. Ideally, you will know that people of different races and sizes will naturally have different requirements for the number of condoms. How to distinguish the size of condoms? There are mainly two standards. The first is the circumference and the second is the width. The width measured when the condom is flat is half of the circumference. The condom is made of elastic material, so you should choose a size smaller than the actual size to prevent it from falling off. You can try different sizes to feel which one fits.
Common brands on the market include Durex, Okamoto, Sagami and so on. Most latex condoms are 36mm in diameter, 112mm in circumference, and 56mm in width. If you feel too tight, you can choose a condom with a wider width. When latex condoms have a thickness of 0.03, to have a firmer and thinner effect, the circumference and width will be a little smaller. The above information is written on the back of each box, but when you buy and use it, you are very eager or are only interested in how to use it, so the above information is ignored.
When it comes to the thickness of condoms, everyone is pursuing 0.02, or 0.01, which has been sold out for a long time. This kind of condom is not made of latex but made of PU material (polyurethane), because the thinnest latex material can only be 0.03, and the PU material can be 0.01. What is the difference between the two? Latex has high elasticity and is more resistant to friction; PU material is not as elastic as latex, so sufficient lubrication is required to ensure a comfortable sex process.
If you want to try 0.02 and 0.01, based on the above information, if you feel a little tight with latex condoms, you have to use 0.02 or 0.01 large size (yes, there are large sizes), because PU condoms are relatively close-fitting, and it’s easy to get the wrong size. Feeling cursed. Of course, if you think ordinary latex condoms are a bit loose, there are actually more personal sizes for everyone to choose from.
The latest condom material is PI material (Polyisoprene), which is a medical material (mostly used for doctors to palpate), suitable for people who are allergic to latex or PU materials. The PI material transfers heat quickly, allowing users to feel closer to the skin. At present, only two condom companies produce condoms made of PI material. If you are looking for a real feeling, you can try condoms made of PI material.
After all, if you want to know what condom is right for you, you should measure the circumference and length when you have an erection at home, and then buy it. Try a few more times and you will naturally find a condom that suits you.
Some people are allergic to latex, so they choose PU and PI condoms. Speaking of being sensitive to latex or hating the texture of artificial condoms, you can try a condom made of natural sheepskin membranes with textures close to human skin. Everyone knows that lamb intestines are the ancestors of condoms, so someone who likes natural simplicity will buy this kind of condom. However, the amniotic membrane condom can only be used for contraception and cannot prevent HIV and STD diseases. Because the amniotic membrane has tiny holes that are not enough to prevent diseases, it is suitable for people who want to prevent contraception and pursue nature.
There are also condoms sold specifically for vegetarians on the market, which do not contain casein. In other condoms, casein is added during the production process, and casein is extracted from animals, so the composition of casein is not in line with the lifestyle habits of vegetarians. The condoms available for vegetarians on the market are made of plant-derived glue and provide different sizes and fragrances. It can be seen that the types of condoms are diversified and they also cater for the needs of vegetarians.
Furthermore, the method of using condoms and lubricants is also very important.
The lubricant used on the condom is a silicon-based lubricant, which is characterized by long-lasting lubrication, but it is difficult to clean. Another type of lubricant that can be used on condoms is a water-soluble lubricant, which is more moist, close to the consistency of female natural secretions, and is easy to clean. There is one type of lubricant that must never be used on condoms, that is, oil-based lubricants because the oil will corrode the surface of the condom, causing the condom to rupture, leaving only 10% of the condom's effect. The most important thing is that BB oil, petroleum jelly, and hand cream, all of which are not lubricants, will erode the condom, making it easy to break and spread diseases.
Some people are sensitive to lubricants or don't like lubricants. In fact, there are condoms without lubricants on the market. Everyone, if you hate the stickiness and taste of certain lubricants or don’t like certain condoms, I suggest you buy condoms and lubricants yourself. This is a kind of care for yourself.
Some condoms have the effect of delaying ejaculation and enhancing durability. There are three main principles. The first is to thicken the thickness of the condom to reduce the irritation felt by the penis, thereby reducing sensitivity and slowing down ejaculation. The second is to add lubricant Benzocaine to the condom. This is a lubricant containing anaesthetic ingredients, which will dissolve with body temperature and can temporarily reduce the sensitivity of the vulva (use with caution for people with sensitive skin). The third is that the design of the condom root is relatively tight, which slows down the ejaculation rate of the penis.
As for the uneven pattern on the condom, there are two types, one is external (stimulation to the inserting side), the other is internal (stimulation to the wearing side), there are spiral patterns, bumps, etc. for everyone to choose from. At the same time, condoms also have different fragrances. The main effect is to cover up the peculiar smell of latex condoms (although not everyone cares). Now there are many different flavours for you to choose from. You can search online.
There is also a female condom that is less commonly used. The emergence of female condoms has given women greater rights to protect themselves. Female condoms are made of PU material or synthetic nitrile. Synthetic nitrile is more thermally conductive and tougher than latex condoms. The female condom has two fixing rings. The inner ring needs to be pushed into the vagina pubic position with fingers, while the outer ring is at the vaginal opening. If the man is unwilling to wear a condom, the woman can wear a female condom before sex. The function of female condoms is the same as that of male condoms, which can prevent contraception and prevent the spread of diseases. Because many women feel resistant to implantable products (tampons, female condoms, plugs, etc.) and feel unsightly, the popularity of female condoms is very low.
Although the popularity in Eurasia is low, in some developing countries in Africa, female condoms are very popular. Not only has it curbed the severe local AIDS epidemic, but it has also brought reforms to the local concept of family planning.
Female condoms bring greater autonomy to women and are also a reflection of men’s reluctance to wear condoms. If the other party does not want to wear condoms, women have the right to say no. Think about the possible risks (disease, pregnancy) of sexual intercourse without a condom, and you will know how to love yourself. Safety first, health first.
This article outlines what types of condoms are available on the market for everyone to choose from, hoping to help everyone understand their intimate needs. Everyone's sex life is different, so there are all kinds of sex products. In contrast, you don’t need to mind or worry too much about being different from others, because we are unique by nature.
