What are Durex Intimate Feel condoms?
Durex Intimate Feel are all about bringing you and your partner closer together. They are manufactured with a much thinner latex material so you get the skin-to-skin sensation without risking any consequences. They are also made with extra lubrication for heightened pleasure.
Because these condoms are made with closeness and enjoyment of sex in mind, they have been designed to not carry that clinical smell so that there are no unpleasant distractions to interrupt you and your partner getting close and intimate.
Another potential distraction from being able to enjoy sex to the fullest is the worry of getting pregnant or contracting HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. Durex Intimate Feel admonishes this fear, as they are over 99% effective (when used properly) at protecting you from all of that.
How do Durex Intimate compare to other condoms?
Durex Intimate are a standard size at 195mm long and 56mm wide, however they are made of a thinner material so that the sensation is heightened. In order to create more pleasure, they are also heavily lubricated for a smoother experience.
Durex Intimate have an easy-on shape for a better and more comfortable fit, and they have been electronically tested so you know they’ll keep you safe from pregnancy and STI’s too, without worrying about them breaking easily.
How do I use condoms?
Always read the instruction leaflet enclosed, especially when using condoms for anal or oral sex. To put the condom on, start by tearing open the foil packet and making sure that you have it the right way up (it should look like a little hat with the roll of the seam on the outside).
Pinch the tip, as not doing so could get air trapped inside and could result in breakage, then place the condom on the tip of the penis. Roll it down the shaft until it’s all the way on and then you’re good to go.
After having sex, hold the condom at the base so that it doesn’t come off as you pull out of your partner. Roll it off (taking care not to do this too quickly) and then dispose of the condom in a bin. Do not flush them down the toilet.
You should use a new condom every time you have sex, including if you are using them on sex toys.
Warnings and precautions
Before using condoms, make sure that they are in date. Because of the material they are made of, they do expire so it’s important to check this beforehand. You should also take care to make sure they are not damaged or torn in any way as this could decrease their effectiveness at protecting against pregnancy and STI’s.
Be aware that some people are allergic to latex and so if you or your partner experience this then discontinue use straight away and explore other non-latex options.
You can use lubricants with condoms and most Durex ones are safe to use together, however you should always check beforehand as some lubricants can damage the latex.
If you are having sex underwater or in the shower then be sure to put the condom on before you get in. Keep in mind that some oils, perfumes and other bath products can damage the latex so you may not be completely protected if you are using any of these.
