For some women, a natural feeling during sex is key to reaching climax but, with safety also being a consideration, you be sure that you get both when it comes to choosing a condom? Long gone are the days of waiting for your partner to pull a random condom out of their wallet; it’s time for women to take the reins when it comes to finding a condom that is perfect for them.
Sure, picking a condom may seem like a simple task, but there is so much to consider, after all, every woman is different, and every vagina is different.
For some, it may be the need for a condom that is latex-free, or for others, it could be an extra thin condom. For other women, however, the main consideration might be lube; the 98% natural ingredient water-based lube found on the Durex Naturals condom for example, could be the difference when it comes to having an orgasm. Finding the right size and fit onto a penis or toy can also play a big part in increasing your sexual satisfaction.
Looking for the perfect condom to promote satisfying sex? Here is our guide to the best condoms for women. You can also check out our Durex condom buying guide to find the size and fit that’s right for you and your partner.
Why choose condoms?
Condoms are great for keeping sex safe and are 98% effective at preventing pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) if used correctly – there is still a common misconception among some that condoms are tricky to use or that they have the potential to spoil the moment. We’re here to tell you this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Not only are condoms easy to use (check out our guide on how to use a condom if you have any questions) but choosing the right condom can help with your sexual satisfaction. From Thin Feel to Durex Naturals, let’s take a look at some of the best condoms out there designed for women.
What are the best condoms for her?
Women’s needs and preferences vary greatly when it comes to sex, and that remains true when considering condoms.
Despite what some people say, condoms don’t have to be cumbersome and noticeable. There are plenty of options that are thin enough for a woman to feel the profile of the man’s penis.
For those who want a natural feeling during sex whilst also ensuring a certain level of safety – it’s about finding a condom that suits both partners and allows you both to focus on what really matters; each other, and the closeness between you.
It can help to talk with your partner about your preferences to find an option that works for you both.
Best condom for a natural feeling
For those looking for a condom that provides protection, but also helps to maintain a natural feeling lubrication, the Durex Naturals condom is the perfect option.
Always read the pack instructions
Though worn by the male partner, the Naturals condom is designed with her in mind and is coated in a 98% natural ingredient water-based lubricant for a naturally smooth feeling. The condom is as thin as the Durex Thin Feel Classic Condom, meaning it provides an intimate experience with a partner.
For many, sex feels better with lube. Choosing a lubricated condom can therefore be a great way to promote both safety and enjoyment. If you’re looking for a little more smoothness during sex, Durex Thin Feel Extra Lubricated condoms are another excellent choice for women.
The Durex Invisible Extra Sensitive condom could also be a consideration, with its extra-thin profile providing an intimate sensation. The Durex Real Feel condom could be another great choice as well. Not only does it give that incredible skin-on-skin feeling, but it’s also latex-free for those who suffer from latex sensitivity.
The most stimulating condom for women
Though a natural feel can often provide the pleasure you desire from sex, sometimes there’s a need for added enjoyment or stimulation. In such situations, dotted or ribbed condoms can provide some extra fun.
Designed to provide gentle resistance during intimacy, and with intricately textured surfaces, these condoms provide that slight bit of friction and added stimulation inside the vagina. Looking for something a little more intense? The perfect condom for giving her pleasure; Durex Intense Ribbed and Dotted condoms are a great choice if you’re looking for something to help you get the most out of sex.
The best condoms for oral sex
Oral sex can be enjoyable for both partners. When performing fellatio, a condom can provide protection from STIs. In some instances, however, the feeling of the condom in the mouth can put a dampener on the experience.
The Durex Naturals condom provides a smooth experience with its thinness and natural feeling lubrication. For those who prefer a more playful and fun experience when performing oral sex, flavoured condoms can add an extra touch of excitement.
Sex is a natural desire, so it makes total sense that we want it to feel just that way. However, it’s important to practice safe sex – so be sure to read the pack instructions whenever using a product that is new to you.
