Do Textured Condoms Feel Better?
Textured condoms are designed for incredible pleasure; it's that simple. How pleasurable do textured condoms feel? Well, only you can decide for yourself by testing ONE® Tattoo Touch Condoms or ONE® Super Studs Condoms, but here's the how what and why.
So how do textured condoms work?
Textured condoms are the less commonly known cousin to the standard condom. These condoms provide the same benefits as standard condoms but with an enhanced sensation. These fun condoms feature ribbed patterns and dot designs to stimulate sensitive nerve endings during sex. And it's backed by science: the improved experience comes from the friction created by the ribbing and dotting of the exterior of the condom during penetrative sex.
Because all bodies (and sexual appetites) are different, textured condoms are designed to enhance pleasure during different sexual experiences. The ribbing and dotting can stimulate nerve endings both inside the vagina and outside on the vulva. Textured condoms can also create a fun sensation when used during anal sex, as the texture interacts with the sensitive internal linings of the body.
What is the difference between "dotted" and "ribbed" condoms?
There are two main categories of textured condoms: dotted and ribbed. They offer enhanced sexual pleasure and provide the protection of condom use in general but have slightly different sensations.
Let's begin with the dotted condoms, using ONE® Super Studs Condoms as an example. These condoms are designed with hundreds (264 to be exact) of micro-sized "studs" or dots, covering the length of the condom. The studs themselves feel larger than, say, goosebumps but smaller than the circles you might find on children's building block toys. They are equally spaced across the outer part of the condom to boost stimulation and give the user (and their partner) intense pleasure.
Such studs interact with sensitive nerve endings inside our bodies and on our skin. They create the friction that feels oh so good. When paired with a liberal application of a good lubricant, this can be a fantastic experience for everyone involved!
The second type of texture condom is ribbed condoms. No, these are not like the ribs in your body. Thankfully, these are typically slightly raised patterns on the exterior of the condom. ONE® Tattoo Touch Condoms are an excellent example of ribbed condoms if you're looking for the thinnest textured condoms.
As you can see, the custom ribbed pattern on the outside of the condom is slightly raised. This ribbed pattern works with the thrusting and rubbing motion of penetrative sex to delight nerve endings. The sensitive nature of your nerve endings makes the designs feel larger than life in the best way possible.
If sex is already satisfactory, why use textured condoms?
Suppose you are already satisfied with your sex life and your sexual experiences. First of all, congratulations! That being said, these condoms are designed to enhance those experiences, so just imagine what these fun condoms could do for you and your partner(s)! Whether it's a delightful birthday surprise, a special occasion, or just another day, it's always a good time to have more stimulating, pleasurable sex.
One of the largely unspoken perks of textured condoms is less about the textured design and more about what condoms provide in safety and prevention. Are you looking to spice things up sexually and wondering how to do so? Can any of the other ideas on the list you're making also give you the same comfort and control over your sex life? Textured condoms offer the same reduced risk of sexually transmitted infections (STI) transmission and preventing unintended pregnancy, doing double duty!
