Has anyone tried the EROTIM Long Love Condoms?. Are claimed to be the best condoms available in the market.

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 know I'm not a volunteer here, but please don't post the same thread more than once, especially not in the same forum.

Not only does it break the guidelines, its pretty annoying!

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.
