It’s directly related to girth size of penis and choosing right size of condom is important for clinical failures (breakage and slippage during sexual intercourse) as well as consumer experience (too tight, uncomfortable, too loosen, hard to don etc). Durex is providing several size of condoms for consumer to choose right size one for them.

Again it’s related to the size of penis. ISO mandate the condom should longer than 160mm and Durex condoms are over 180mm. If condom is too short and can’t fully cover the penis, it can be slipped during sexual intercourse.

Natural rubber from the rubber tree as main ingredient of natural rubber latex condom is consist of rubber particles and non-rubber ingredients. Those materials are having typical odor and some consumers are sensitive to orders from those natural ingredients. The flavors are added to mask this typical natural odor and give different experience to consumer

Flavor added in lubricant and lubricant are dose on condoms.

Durex extended pleasure has 5% of benzocaine paste inside of condom. Benzocaine is well known topical desensitization agent and widely used for sexual welling products to help premature ejaculation. When male don the condom properly, benzocaine paste will contact with gland of penis which is most sensitive part of male and help to last longer and get pleasure more through extended time.

Textured condom can stimulate female’s intimate area during sexual intercourse.

Condom’s thickness are different. The brand name is vary depends on market but in general, Featherlight range of product has around 55 micron thickness and Ultra Thin condom has 52 micron and Invisible products has less than 50 micron.

The thickness of condom is one of the factor to influence the consumer experience. Some consumer prefer to have thinner condoms to maximize the sensitivity and some consumer prefer thicker condom to reduce sensitivity.

Condom’s navigation on the pack can be a guidance to select proper size of condoms for consumer. However, consumer experience is vary from different size of condoms. Some consumer prefer tight feelings while some consumer feel uncomfortable with tight condom. If consumer get experience of pain or breakage due to smaller size of condom, it’s better to have wider condoms. If consumer get experience of slippage during intercourse, it’s better to have smaller one.

Natural rubber consist of rubber particle and other natural ingredients. Some consumer has allergy to this other natural ingredients from natural rubber latex from tree, especially natural proteins in other natural ingredients.

Durex recommend to use non natural rubber latex condom for those customer who has allergy to natural protein.

Biological safety assessment are conducted all type of Durex condoms and one of test to assess consumer safety is irritation test on mucous membrane of intimate area. It’s proved all Durex condoms don’t have irritation risk or systemic toxicity. However it’s strongly recommended to see doctor when this case happens and remove it immediately.

Silicone lubricants are widely used for condoms and some condoms has different type of lubricants such as water based lubricant for the consumer who don’t want to use the condom with silicone lubricant. All lubricants on Durex condoms are chosen and proved through compatibility test between condom and lubricant as well as stability studies. So consumer can use any type of condoms without worrying about safety.

We have more than 80 years of experience of manufacturing condoms. So it's hardly surprising that Durex are the world's leading condoms. All our condoms use only fine quality raw materials. And every single one is electronically tested for holes and imperfections. We lead the way in innovation too.

Every Durex condom is electronically tested to ensure it meets the standards. A random sample of condoms is also taken from each batch for more rigorous quality tests. After measuring thickness and length, samples go through an air inflation test to check for burst strength and elasticity (typically a Durex condom can hold 40 litres of air without bursting). Water leak testing is also carried out - sample condoms are filled with water, suspended for one minute and rolled on blotting paper which would show any leakage. Approximately two million water tests are carried out every month in Durex factories. If the sample fails any of the tests, the whole batch is rejected.

Durex condoms set the quality standard around the world, by meeting or exceeding all national and international standards. We have even upgraded the requirements for the Durex Quality symbol to make sure we continue to stay ahead of regulatory standards. Here’s an example: The international standard for the air burst test is for the condom to contain 18 litres of air. But our requirement is for 22 litres - and typically a Durex condom will expand to contain 40 litres of air.

No. The thickness of the condom doesn't necessarily correspond to safety.

Durex flavoured condoms are intended primarily for vaginal sex. However, if you choose to use them in oral sex, the lubricant is safe if ingested. We recommend if used in oral sex that a new condom be used for vaginal sex.

There has been no research into the performance of condoms when they are used in or under water. The risk of slippage, for example, might increase when used in such circumstances. Though the salt in seawater would not have adverse effects on condom materials, there is a strong possibility that the chemicals used in swimming pools (chlorine and ozone, for example) would. The presence of bath oils or other substances in the water or applied in the shower may also have an adverse effect on the properties of the latex condom material.

For too long, lubes have been associated with anal sex or women with vaginal dryness. But, there’s a growing trend for people to use lube simply to make sex better. Lubes can be used to enhance sensations, add a bit of fun or just top up natural levels of lubrication. Durex Play lubes have been specially designed to enhance your sexual experience!

No. There are lots of reasons why a woman might experience dryness including stress, after having a baby, using tampons, and changes in hormone levels.

Yes - Durex lubricants are water-based, so all are suitable to use with condoms.

Everywhere and anywhere. Durex Play lubes are suitable to use all over the body and are suitable to consume. The only thing we wouldn’t recommend is using a tingling lubricant for anal sex as some people can experience slightly stronger sensations than others.

Many people find using lube with a massager a real revelation. It lets the massager glide over the body - easily giving a more intense feeling. All of the Durex Play lubes are suitable to use with all types of massagers and wash off easily with water.

There are really no rules here. The best thing to do is just relax, enjoy and experiment. But, when you’re trying it for the first time, simply squeeze a little lube onto your fingertips and gently apply to your intimate areas. Lube can be used with or without a condom, either when it is already on or before. Take care not to use too much before you put the condom on, otherwise it may slip off during sex. You can always apply more if you need it.
