I would stay away from these condoms--any condom that has a lubricant in it other than waterbased lube in it can be irritating. The lidocaine is intended to numb the penis, which can cause lots of problems, like a bad reaction, irritation for the person wearing the condom or his partner, etc. A regular lubricated condom will do just fine.

I don't I could subject my boyfriend to numbing his penis just so he could last longer. That doesn't sound enjoyable at all.

Also, all of the "numbing" lubricant doesn't stay on his side of the condom, you know. They just squirt that lube in the package, so it's all over the condom. So yeah...not only may he be numb, but you're gonna be numb too.
Really, numbness during sex really seems to defeat the purpose.
