On a recent trip to the Condomerie, I couldn’t help but think that the world of pleasurable condoms had exploded while I was under the sheets somewhere, always buying the same trusty variety. While I recently posted about condom design innovations, that article was just the tip of the iceberg.


Coripa CondomsWhile I once had mourned the fact that TheyFit stopped (indefinitely?) producing custom-sized condoms, I was delighted to find that someone has stepped in to fulfill the need for condoms that come in many sizes so you can find the one that feels the best. The new brand is called Coripa, and they boast 55 different condom sizesĀ  to fit anyone’s needs. Similar to the TheyFit, you first print off a pattern, take your measurements, and order accordingly. Brilliant. While Coripa is based in Germany and their listing of retailers looks rather limited, the folks at the Condomerie will ship condoms to you anywhere in the world.

VA WOW CondomMaybe you’ve heard about the legendary “C-V Distance”? No, this has nothing to do with your resume, your level of physical fitness, or probability and statistics. This time it’s the distance between a woman’s clitoris and her vagina.

Back in February, Kim Wallen, a professor at Emory University, reanalyzed measurement data of women and discovered a correlation between distance and ability to orgasm during penile-vaginal intercourse.

[T]here’s even an easy “rule of thumb,” Wallen says: Clitoris-vagina distances less than 2.5 cm — that’s roughly from the tip of your thumb to your first knuckle — tend to yield reliable orgasms during sex. More than a thumb’s length? Regular intercourse alone typically might not do the trick.

This may be statistically true, but I would posit that this isn’t the end of the story. Read the rest of this entry »

The Human Condition, a blog by Kate Dailey, recently posted about five condom design innovations particularly suited to making sex more pleasurable. Some – like the wider head on the condoms – have been around in Europe for some time, but are just becoming popular in America. Others are examples of condom manufacturers picking up on tricks that we’ve been using to make sex more slippery-slidey and sensational for years!

It also includes some nice tips:

Not all women report a difference in sensation based on the ribbing, so personal preference applies. (However, almost everyone we spoke to recommended a vibrating ring to be worn over the condom, which the large majority of women will most assuredly feel.)

Do you know about other innovations in safer sex technology? Leave us a comment and we’ll check it out!
