Ok, I know all sorts of condoms have been tested in order to figure out which are the best and everything, but what haven't come up (as far as I can tell) are clear condoms. I know they exist, I just don't know anything about them, except that they're clear. Are they any good?

i have to say, i don't quite know what you're talking about. most regular latex condoms are clear when they're on. do you mean polyurethane condoms by any chance?

I have no idea what I'm talking about, that is why I was asking you all. I guess it was a stupid thing to ask. Nevermind, I don't know what I'm asking. Sorry if I annoyed ya.

LMAO!

Polyurethane condoms are indeed very close to clear (though because they are not latex, they do not offer the same level of protection), and there are a few brands and varieties that are more transparaent than others, but latex basically can't be made to be 100% transparent.

What is so funny? I don't get it. I feel terrible now, I'm so embarrassed. I don't know anything about this, hence the posting of a question.

Don't be embarassed. I was simply laughing because it really is so hard to know what's what when there are so many choices.

It wasn't a stupid question, Gaffer.

I don't think it was a stupid question either.

But I find it funny.

Not the question in itself.

The image it provokes.

Can you imagine a completely transparent, crystal clear condom?

I somehow find that oddly amusing.

However, I've never seen a regular condom, so I really shouldn't talk...
