Just wondering,
I was going to go buy condoms. Just wanted to know how reliable Kimono Ultra Thin Aqua and Durex Mutual Pleasure are. Are these reliable enough that when it is used right that they won't break on me?

Most condoms will be reliable, if used correctly--using plenty of lube. Most users report issues with Trojan. Kimono and Durex both score high on the consumer repots.

Most well known brands of condoms (both Kimono and Durex are) are reliable. Most condoms don't break or fail because of a flaw in the condom. Failure is usually due to not using enough lube, not using a water based lube, letting them expire, or just using them incorrectly.

However, if it's of any consequence, I usually buy Durex condoms and have never had a problem with them.
