Consumer Reports tested condoms to see how they would hold up during use.

The Top Condoms:
1. Durex Extra Sensitive Lubricated
2. Durex Performax Lubricated
3. LifeStyles Classic Collection Ultra Sensitive Lubricated
4. TheyFit Lubricated
5. Trojan Extended Pleasure Climax Control
6. Trojan Non-lubricated
7. Trojan Ultra Pleasure Spermicidal

The Planned Parenthood condoms came in at the bottom of the list. (hey, if you get knocked up then they'll make money on the abortion.)
"We tested 120 samples of each model except the Planned Parenthood Honeydew, whose initial failure merited a retest of a larger sample of 500."
yikes. hope you're not using those.

What surprised me, "The report discourages use of Spermicidal Condoms partly because they 'have a shorter shelf life, and may cause urinary-tract infections in young women.'"
I had always been told to get the spermicidal ones to cut down the failure rate.

the only time i used spermicidal ones, we found out that both my boyfriend at the time and i were allergic to whatever chemicals were in it (him more than me...poor guy) threw us for a loop though...all those bumps on the dick were a scary thought

Uncertainly like this is why I can't wait to get a vasectomy, if I'll ever need it though.

the top 7 all scored the same and they just listed them alphabetically.

sorry. probably should have said that.


below the top 7, the scores suck. the bottom two look like they break more than they work.

you're a good man.

but good luck finding someone to do it. I've been asking them to snip me since I was 19. I'll finally have it done at age 25, after two kids.

I'll just pay them extra if thats what it takes, once I get in a serious relationship. Having a kid would be the worst day of my life.

I don't regret my kids. They're the best thing to ever happen to me.

Don't think it'll be a matter of money. You'll probably have to doctor shop to find someone willing to do it. An acquaintance had to try a half dozen different docs at different hospitals before finding one to do it. I think she was 25 or 28 when she got it done, but she didn't have any kids.
Maybe it'll be easier for a guy since yours is less invasive and more reversible.

I hate the smell of the durex ones. I didn't even know Planned Parenthood made thier own condoms. Too bad they didn't test japanese brands because they are amazingly thin yet strong.

B7, this is the bone closet, none of the trolling aloud in here
