Lifestyles Extra Sensitive Lubricated Discs - condoms in little yoghurt container thingies.

Sounds like a good idea - a condom in a container that's even easier to open than the usual ones. Just peel it open like a yoghurt packet. This works fine, even if it seems like overkill to me.

What lies inside was a serious disappointment - aside from its diminutive size (no meassurement available, but it was fairly small - 40mm?), the condom reeks!

Rotting cabbage. Just the scent you need during sex! I don't know if the container was faulty or what, but these condoms were fresh from the shop. The expiry date was 2004.

When (after a few minutes struggling - imagine trying to pin down loose soap in the shower) I finally got one on, things got worse. Imagine something smelly and unpleasant looking that is slowly choking the life out of your genitals.

At least it was lubricated - as hard as it was to get off, I didn't need scissors!

In all, I'd recommend crushing Mr. Happy in a car door as a preferable means of birth control. ;p

Huh. One of my partners and I used those for a while (he bought them -- usually I buy Durex) and we didn't have any problems with them, nor did I notice any smell.

Maybe you got a bad one? He seemed quite taken with them. I was really touched that he'd gone out and gotten them, since up until then I was the one making the effort to have the safer sex supplies on hand.

Just another datapoint,
Erin

i've never used the lifestyles yogurt container ones, but the durex coins seem to be pretty much the same idea and i've never had an issue with them smelling weird (anymore than latex smells weird...but that's another issue...)

i agree. bad batch. i may have to try them myself now, though...i'm curious.

Love is a word that is constantly heard
Hate is a word that is not.
Love, I am told, is more precious than gold.
Love, I have read, is hot.
But hate is the verb that to me is superb,
And love but a drug on the mart.
Any kiddie in school can love like a fool,
But hating, my boy, is an art.

Hmmmm...maybe it was the cabbage I had for lunch, then? ;p

I guess maybe it was a bad batch...but I tried all the ones in the pack and they all smelled horrible. I'm just glad I was only looking at the time - great way to kill a mood!

I am a very bad person.

Say, speaking of condoms, if I haven't already, I'd like to thank Scarleteen generally (meaning Miz Scarlet & Hanne particularly ) for recommending the kimono microthins. Even I can tell how good they are, on the receiving end and all. When we have money, we buy those. Thank you, thank you, thank you. We both really like them.

Durex is sort of our default condom, 'cause we get bunches of them free! here at college. We've actually wandered outside and gone upstairs in our bathrobes and knocked on the RAs' door and said "Condoms please!" They gave us a big handful, and we keep them in a big, ugly, bright red glittery cheap plastic santa claus jar that we got from Wal-Mart for 25 cents. Merry christmas.
