Durex Extra Sensitive Review

The Durex Extra Sensitive is a top notch condom which delivers superior protection and comfort. Size-wise, the Extra Sensitive is 7.5 inches long and 2 inches wide. But, the head size is slightly larger, measuring in at 2.125 inches. This is a traditional latex condom, in the sense that it has no special textures or extreme features, but it does have a really nice water-based lube and a reservoir tip.

This condom is also thin enough to transfer heat and provide a more natural feel than thicker condoms. I like it way better than the Trojan Ultra Thin, Thintensity, or the Kimono MicroThin. So, the next time I am in need of a thin condom, this will be my choice.

The most noticeable characteristic of this condom is its contoured shape around the head area. I am usually a fan of contoured condoms because they offer a higher level of comfort and they mimic the shape of the man, instead of him looking like a straight tube or cylinder. This amazing shape at the tip of the condom also helps the head have more room for movement and increases the pleasurable sensations felt by both partners.

Visually, I found the Durex Extra Sensitive to be more opaque than I tend to like. I feel as though seeing through the latex can create the illusion of wearing nothing. The lubricant in this condom feels light, but it actually lasts a super long time, which was pleasantly surprising. However, the lubricant did add to the opaqueness of the condom, which is a downside for me.

For some reason, even though this condom does not contain menthol, it has a slightly minty or tea tree-esque odor, which I find to be quite nice. Don’t worry, it’s subtle. It is a nice, clean and fresh odor. It definitely does not smell like latex.

Taste-wise, it was a bit soapy or suntan lotion-y, but not in an overpowering way. The taste kind of reminded me of the way sea shell shaped guest soaps smell, and for me, that’s a good thing.
