The results from condomdepot.com 10th Annual Condom Awards are in. Some great new innovations in condom manufacturing! The arrival of the Lifestyles X2 had everyone talking! These new condoms are perfect for not only those that have an issue staying erect wearing a condom but our female testers loved them too. The reviewers concluded that Sensitivity and Reliability are the two most important condom characteristics. For a 4th straight year, Trojan Condoms did not score well with the reviewers mostly complaining of lack of sensitivity and overly latex smell.

The forty condoms they received where decided by combining top Selling Condoms with the ratings receive from the customers via online reviews. The official condom tester team was made up of folks from a varied segment of the population including, Three Florida Swingers Clubs, Students from various Universities and 50 couples of various ages. This year the pool consisted of 250.

When you first look at this condom don’t laugh. It’s odd “Light Bulb” shaped design is for a reason. These condoms have the Largest Headroom of any condom.

Best Safe Sex Gadget
Clitoral Stimulation For Her & Rock Hard Erections For Him
We have seen many of these gadgets come to our office over the years but never have we been so impressed with the Vibrating Johnny! As one reviewer submitted, “Fantastic! my wife absolutely loved this product! The stimulator was perfectly positioned and gave her multiple orgasms! 4 Thumbs Up!”
Here’s the skinny. The Vibrating Johnny works in two different ways. For him, it acts as an erection enhancer. It keeps blood flow in the penis which makes for a longer, more “Ripped” looking Penis. For Her, it features a Textured Vibrating Clitoral Stimulator. When he wears it, the stimulator comes into contact with her clitoris which gives her incredible pleasure. We like it much better than similar products because it lasts longer, seems more powerful and it stays on because it has a bumpy ring. The ring’s bumps keep it in place during wild sex. Ride’em Cowgirl, Yeeha!
- Characteristics - Lasts for about 20-30 minutes. Has a convenient on/off switch for multiple use.
- She Thinks - Stimulator hits all the right spots with powerful vibrations!
- He Thinks - It makes the veins in my penis look like Gov. Arnold in ‘Conan the Barbarian’!
- Average Tester Rating - Her: A+, Him: A+
- Condom Stats - Stretchable – One Size Fits All

Pjur Eros Original BodyGlide - Best Silicone Based Lubricant
Co-Winner of the World’s Best Lubricant! This makes the list as our favorite lube.Unlike any other lube in that it doesn’t dry up and in never gets sticky feeling. Being that it’s silicone based, it’s safe for use in and out of water and condom safe.. Although this lube is more expensive than Water Based Lubricants, it has a better value because you only need a drop or two at the most. This silicone lube is taste-free, fragrance free, and will NEVER get sticky feeling or dry out. Its condom safe but may interact with silicone toys. WATCH OUT FOR GENERIC BODYGLIDE. There are many Lower Quality BodyGlides on the market. If the label does not have the “Pjur” Name on it, it is not Original Eros.
Mike & Donna in Florida say; “This is the best lubricant we have ever used. We have not found any other that come close to its ability to maintain lubricity, while being very smooth and silky..”
- Characteristics - It never dries. Can be used in the shower and under water. One drop is all that’s needed.
