Hey everyone, I decided to address the ribbed condoms situation. I have heard that ribbed condoms are used only for anal sex, but I know that to be completely preference. I recently signed up with and placed an order for a 20 pack of these condoms and I am saving them for my visit to see my fiance. I might add that it came with a free trial size of the infamous Wet lube. I'm excited about using them. Has anyone used these particular condoms or the Wet lube? If so, can you tell me exactly what they are supposed to do?

All condoms and lubricants basically have the same function. The condom goes over the entire penis. It "collects" the pre-ejaculate and semen, prohibiting the transfer of bodily fluids. The lubricant "moistens" the condom, reducing the friction, thus reducing chance of breakage, and increasing comfort.

I ordered condoms from, and I'll I've gotten so far is a bunch of junk e-mail. I think it's a scam, because I did this over six weeks ago, and no condoms on my doorstep as of yet.

The difference between regular condoms and ribbed condoms is that ribbed condoms are ribbed. They just have these little ripples in the latex that increase sensation for SOME people. I say some because not everyone can feel a difference. I love ribbed condoms, and I can feel an increase in sensation, but my bestfriend doesn't feel a thing. So you might as well try it out, and see if it does anything for you, but if it doesn't, don't be too surprised.

i give Durex High Sensation a big thumbs up. But *no* condoms, ribbed, dotted, or otherwise, are neither exclusively for anal, vaginal, oral or whateverhaveyou use.

either case, it's a good brand. personally, i'm rather fond of the textured ones.

A waist is a terrible thing to mind.
