What’s the best condom for me?

With so many options out there, it can be daunting to work out which condom is best for you. This handy guide details the key things to look out for.

The best condom for you depends on your individual needs and preferences. There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question as everyone has their own unique requirements and desires when it comes to condoms.

Here are a few things to consider when choosing the best condom for you:


Latex is the most common material for condoms, but that doesn’t mean it’s the best. Some people have allergies to latex, so non-latex options such as polyisoprene or polyurethane are available. SKYN’s condoms are made with SKYNFEEL®, a polyisoprene-based material that is softer and more natural-feeling than latex condoms. If you haven’t tried it already, we’d recommend you give it a go! 


Condoms come in different sizes, so it is important to choose one that fits you well to ensure maximum safety and comfort. After all you don’t want one that’s so big it slips off, or so snug it’s unpleasant. The easiest way to calculate the girth of your penis is to wrap a measuring tape around the thickest part of your erect penis. You can use this measurement to decide what size condom you need. The length is less important as a condom that is too long can be rolled down at the base and a condom that is a bit short still offers good protection.  


Some condoms come with added textures or ribs to enhance pleasure, while others are smooth. This is a topic that’s best discussed with your partner as they might have their own ideas about what they would like to try. If you’re not sure it might be a good idea to get a variety pack and sample the different sensations – There’s something for everyone! 


Some condoms come with added lubricant, while others do not. You can also choose to use a separate water-based or silicone-based lubricant if desired, but make sure it’s compatible with whatever condom you’re using. All SKYN condoms have lubricant added for extra comfort, but there are some with extra lube and several different lubricants you can add yourself.

Flavors and sensations:

Condoms also come with all sorts of flavors and sensations. From Daiquiri flavored condoms to those with warming or cooling gels, there are plenty of options out there! 

In short, choose a material you’re comfortable with, a condom that fits properly and then the world is truly your oyster!
