I know how many Scarleteeners don't recommend Trojans ever, and in fact, say that they're one of the worst brands of latex condoms out there. So I was wondering if anyone had used any of the polyurathane condoms made by Trojan. Since I'm allergic to latex, the only two brands I have around me are the Trojan ones and Durex Avanti's- which seem to fit my boyfriend in a strange way. Does anyone know of any reliable brands that they've used or can anyone comment on the Trojan condoms? Thanks!

Reality, the female condom, is also polyurethane.

I haven't tried the Trojan ones, since I confess that I am very happy with my brands and only try other ones that get sent to me for review.

I'm interested in this topic too-- around here (although I don't cruise the condom aisles much), the main brand sold is Trojan. Is a Trojan condom a bad condom? Because that's the kind my boyfriend bought on Friday. I sent him here to the condom guide, but he said he could only find Trojans at the store. I'd appreciate replies! Thanks!

Take Care,

My personal and professional experience in what I have found and have heard from all the sorts of people I hear from daily is that in most peoples experience, just about ANY other brand of condom is often more comfortaable and has a better track record when it comes to durability (AKA: not breaking).

Personally, I like lots of brands that aren't in the drugstore, but Durex brands are nearly always available.

Next time, go with your partner to choose condoms. Really, it's nice to do regardless.
