In case you don’t know what a rubber does – it fits over the penis before sex so semen and bodily fluids are not transferred between partners. It is basically a tight fitting sheath with a reservoir end which is most commonly made of thin, natural latex rubber, designed to cover the erect penis during sexual acts and vaginal or anal intercourse.
The purpose of condoms is to prevent contact with semen and vaginal fluids by limiting skin-to-skin contact in order to avoid pregnancy and the spread of sexually transmitted infections or diseases. Also known as rubbers, love gloves, Jimmy Hats, slippers and skins they are wrapped individually in a sealed foil packet, and shouldn't be used if the seal is torn or broken, or if the product has expired.
Not everyone likes the sensation of wearing them and many people think it decreases the sensitivity and enjoyment of sex, but you can get ultra-thin slippers, as well as ribbed and textured rubbers, which enhance sexual pleasure. Think of them as a contraceptive raincoat made from rubber latex, keeping you safe and protected from sexually transmitted diseases to make sex safe.
The benefits of wearing them far outweigh the negative. They’re a form of birth control to prevent pregnancy and unplanned parenthood. It's like a suit of armour for your penis, and will shield you from pregnancy or sexual infections. That's why you should buy and use them to ensure you're keeping safe. Wear one each and every time you have sex - especially with a new sexual partner. They should only be used once, and disposed of immediately after use.
We stock a huge range from leading brands including Durex, Ansell, My Size, Glyde, Trojan, and more. Types include classic, ultra-thin, added sensations such as ribs and bumps for enhanced pleasure, flavoured to please the taste buds during oral sex, and different sized to fit every penis perfectly, which means there's no excuse for having sex without one. Latex-free and vegan are also available.
If normal sized doms are too big or too small to fit on your penis and stay on securely during sex, you should buy MySize products in your size, as MySize manufactures rubbers in seven different sizes, which you select depending on the circumference of your penis. This ensures you will get the perfect fit, which will help to put your mind at ease and focus on the fun and intimate task at hand.

Most lubricants are safe to use with condoms, with the exception of oil-based or petroleum jelly-based lubricants, which can weaken the latex and could cause tearing. Water-based lubricant is always safe to use, and if you're ever unsure whether or not a lubricant is safe to use, always read the ingredients before use.
