How To Use Condoms to Help Achieve Better Sex


Practising safe sex is an important part of any healthy relationship, but you don’t have to sacrifice fun beneath the sheets to achieve it.

With Durex’s great range of condoms, you can guarantee better sex that is safe and enjoyable, no matter your preferences.

Use Ribbed and Dotted condoms

Using condoms for better sex is simple with our ribbed and dotted condom range. Dotted and ribbed condoms use textured surfaces to help increase stimulation for women and are a great way to maximise pleasure and help her achieve climax.

Below are a few of our favourite that you can wear for better sex:

When using ribbed and dotted condoms, it’s important to remember that sensations will be enhanced so you might want to experiment with the speed of thrusts to enhance pleasure further and prevent a premature finish.

How To Use Condoms For Even Better Sex

Use thin condoms for heightened sensations

Textured condoms aren’t the only way to enjoy better sex, there are also plenty of options which use different lubricants or thicknesses to achieve different sensations.

Our sensation heightening styles are:

All of our condoms, no matter how thick or thin, are to be used for your protection so you can enjoy great sex with added reassurance! The amazing Extended Pleasure condoms are ideal for guys who don’t want their lovemaking cut short. They include Benzocaine lubricant which helps to slow his orgasm down, meaning you’ll have better sex, for longer!

Mix things up with flavoured condoms

Finally, another way you can use condoms for even better sex is to try flavoured options. These flavoured condoms are designed for those who want to make oral sex more enjoyable and there are plenty of different tastes you can try.

Our personal favourite is the Durex Emoji Strawberry Flavoured condom pack. These condoms are flavoured for a fruity and fun experience. Get your man to wear one while you give him a blowjob that will blow his mind.

Using added lube with your choice of condom* will add a further exciting element to your lovemaking experience for you both. Why not experiment until you find the combination you both love the most?

Our fruity lubes available are:

Play Saucy Strawberry: super sweet and tasty for even more fun in foreplay

Play Cheeky Cherry: deliciously fruity for a tantalising taste

Of course, it is still vital that you know how to put a condom on correctly so remember to hold it by the tip and slide it down the shaft of your penis slowly to ensure ultimate safety. If your partner is going to put a condom on for you then make sure they know how to do it too.

We stock condoms in all sizes and styles and even have special Comfort XL condoms for men who need it. Choosing the right condom for you doesn't have to be a difficult task; there are plenty of ways you can have even better sex with condoms!


*Please do not use oil based lubricants with latex as this can damage the condom.
