I was able to see a preview of these from Trojan last fall, and I loved them, especially the video that shows you how condoms are made and tested. In fact, I embarrassed myself by basically jumping up and down in my seat and clapping, then calling it Willy Wonka for Sex Geeks at what was supposed to be a very professional meeting.
But seriously, that one is just that awesome, and I think it really tells and shows you all you need to know if you're not clear on exactly how well condoms can be made and how much you do NOT need to be concerned about manufacturer errors or the infamous abstinence-only myth of "small holes" in condoms.

Just watched them...I really like the factory video too. That was really neat! Although I'm a geek in general who loves watching "How It's Made"...but really, that was awesome!
Also, please tell me I'm not the only one who was giggling slightly at the how to use condoms video? I wasn't at all and then the little cartoon characters run into bed and the entire room starts bouncing and the immature child in me started giggling. Aside from that, though, this is really good stuff! *goes to post it places*

No, using thicker condoms for anal sex is not necessary. Thinner condoms are just as durable. Far more important to ensuring condoms dont break is to make sure they're stored properly, put on properly, and that lots and lots of lube that is not oil-based is used.

The videos were amazing, the cartoon couple where funny. Now, about that guy who explained how the condoms were made, do you have his number? Just kidding.
The cartoon couple made me laugh it's funny and so true.
The condom making factory is cool, It's like watching, How It's Made, but better- more in detail. I learned some new educational background about condoms and how they are made, always wondered how they were made.
