It’s clear that flavored condoms are popular not just for having incredibly safe sex, but also to spice things up in the bedroom. We understand that if this is your first time purchasing flavored condoms, it can be difficult to know where to start and how to pick the right brand and type of flavor for you. There are a lot of similarities between flavored condoms and non-flavored condoms – in fact, there’s pretty much no difference at all. With all of them having reservoir tips and ribbed options, the only difference is the taste.
Nevertheless, we’ve listed a few things to consider below as well as an FAQ to answer any questions that you might have.
P.S. – Read “5 things to remember when choosing the right condom” if you’re still confused!
With these particular condoms, you want to be mindful that if you’ve never tried flavors before – now may be the best time to stick with what you know. The most popular flavors universally are fruity flavors such as orange or strawberry, as they are sweet and often taste similar to sweets and therefore are less artificial or sickening. A flavor such as chocolate for your first time may be too much – so stay safe with the flavors if you’re unsure which one would be the best option for you.
With flavored condoms, there isn’t a lot of size range. Make sure to console your partner on what size condoms fit them best, as if 7-7.5 in is too small, then you may not be able to use them. If your penis is smaller, read this guide: “Why is my penis so small” as there are some guidelines on how to navigate this when using condoms. If your condom breaks, make sure that you have another nearby and get an STD test.
When should I use a flavored condom?
We recommend using flavored condoms for oral sex. The flavors help conceal the latex flavor and odor that regular condoms have. Oral sex without a condom isn’t a smart idea if you don’t know your partner very well. Unprotected oral sex can transmit HIV/AIDS and other STI’s.
There are choices of flavored condoms too. You always have the option to get a non-lubricated condom and also add your personal flavored lubricant and have your own “Custom Flavored Condom”. If you’re planning any penetrative sex such as anal sex or vaginal sex, we recommend using a normal condom. However, we provide you with a video link where you can inform on the subject.
What are the sizing options?
Another factor to consider is most flavored condoms, though made for taste, aren’t abundant in various sizes. To put it bluntly, you get what you get and that’s essentially a normal-sized condom with a reservoir end.
Are flavored condoms as safe as normal condoms?
Yes. As long as you aren’t biting the condom or using an oil-based lubricant, then they are completely safe! Please note that you can use any kind of water-based lubricant with flavored condoms, even spermicidal lubricant. If you want additional info, you can read the following article.
