Different Types of Condoms You Can Use for Sex

Australian people are open as much as they like to experiment. It should come as no surprise to see sex shops and adult toy sales sky rocket year on year. Australia is also seeing a rise in the demand for condoms and it is for the right decisions.

Condoms do not only protect you, your partner, and your future partners from STDs, they also prevent unwanted pregnancies, as much as a male condom is about 98% effective and a female condom has an efficacy of around 95%. Also, condoms also let sex be the fun activity it is supposed to be.

There is a range of condoms available in Australia in 2021, all designed to serve different purposes. Some are designed to be ultra-thin, while some are effective to prevent premature ejaculation. Moreover, there is also a variety of condoms that enhances pleasure. 

But which one is for you? It can be overwhelming to decide but in this blog, we will discuss different types of condoms, their function, and the best scenario to use a particular kind.


Types of Condoms:

  • Lubricated Condoms:

If you know female anatomy, you will know that females can experience dry spells. A dry spell is a period when a person is mentally turned on but his body does not correspond with the psychological stimulation.

Dry spells can lead to a lack of lubrication in females and loose or lack of erection in males. 

To help with such situations, many brands in Australia manufacture lubricated condoms. These condoms have a layer of lubricant already applied to them to make up for the lack of natural lube inside a vagina. They can especially be helpful for anal sex because the anal cavity does not have a natural lubrication mechanism.

Moreover, lubricated condoms can provide ease of penetration if you have just started having sex and have difficulty penetrating. They can also pain sex smoother and less painful in case a partner is feeling pain or discomfort during sex.

Furthermore, lubricated condoms also have less chance of condom breakage because of the lubricant coating that reduces friction.


  • Delaying Condoms:

Delaying condoms are designed to delay the ejaculation time for men as it is normal for most men to achieve orgasm before their partner does, especially during vaginal sex.

The reason for this is that women may need more stimulation than men to reach an orgasm and many women in Australia report difficulty reaching orgasm without clitoral stimulation. 

In such a case, it is important for women that they receive vaginal stimulation for longer to reach orgasm.

Delaying condoms work as they have a coating of delaying chemicals on the inside that reduce penile sensitivity once put on. Moreover, some condoms in Australia are also thicker around the tip and f-spot as these are the most sensitive parts of a man’s penis.

Delaying condoms is also helpful if you experience premature ejaculation, i.e. you ejaculate before you want to. Premature ejaculation is also like a dry spell. It is a phase that can occur in any man’s life when he finds himself unable to perform sexually. 

The reasons behind this are mostly psychological like stress and anxiety but if you are going through that phase, delaying condoms might be the best choice for you.

Delaying condoms is also good if you are just starting to have sex because sex can be overwhelming in the beginning and it is normal for everyone to take some time acclimatizing with the new dynamics.


  • Flavored Condoms:

Many people in Australia think that STDs can only be transferred through genital contact or penetration. Well, it is not entirely true.

The risk of STDs is lower during oral sex but it still can’t rule it out completely. For this reason, it is important to use protection even during oral sex.

But the problem here is that condoms do not necessarily taste good. Moreover, their slimy texture is more likely to make a person gag during oral sex.

Companies in Australia are manufacturing flavored condoms to help keep the activity safe for couples. For starters, flavored condoms are not made with latex as it has an unpleasant smell of its own.

Similarly, instead of regular lubricants, condom companies use flavored lubricants on condoms. The flavors are artificial food-grade material and are completely safe for ingestion. They also have a pleasant smell that makes oral sex more fun and pleasurable in addition to making it safe.

Moreover, there is a variety of flavors you can choose from. You can choose from fruits, combinations of fruits and even dessert flavored condoms, and surprise your partner every day with a new flavor.


  • Ribbed and Dotted:

Ribbed and dotted condoms are for you if you really want to lift your game in bed. They are designed for extra pleasure and extra sensation during sex.

There are different types in this category in Australia, but primarily, they will have some texture on the surface. The texture can be ribbed lines, dots, or even studs. This texture provides better stimulation when it rubs against your nerve endings and creates extra pleasure.

Ribbed and dotted condoms are a great choice, especially for special occasions. They can be used to reward or surprise your partner or just to please them. Moreover, they can also be used as a reward or thank you.

One thing that you might want to be conscious of while using these condoms is to make sure that you are using ample lube as they might irritate the skin or cause discomfort if rubbed against dry skin.

You can always use more lube as long as you make sure that you stick to water-based lubricants and avoid oil-based lubricants because oil-based can break the condoms.


  • Ultra-Thin:

Ultra-thin condoms are for those who want to keep it close to reality. Though almost all types of condoms are thin, some people in Australia believe that condom takes away the natural feel from sex.

If you are one of them, ultra-thin condoms can give you the closest to natural experience while still ensuring that you are safe from STDs and unwanted pregnancies.
