Looking for a condom that will make you last longer in bed? You’re not alone! It’s estimated that up to 30% of men are affected by premature ejaculation. In many cases it leads to severe stress and anxiety that worsen the effects by making it incredibly difficult to relax.
Wearing any form of condom is likely to reduce sensation and slow things down a little, with thicker condoms being the best bet for prolonging ejaculation. Look out for condoms labelled Extra Strength or Extra Safe, since these are usually considerably thicker than regular condoms. We found Durex Performax Intense to the be the best condom for lasting longer, though there are plenty of options.
Before we get in to the pros and cons of each, let’s take a quick look at the best options the market currently has to offer.

Best Condoms For Prolonging Orgasms
|Durex Performax Intense||Yes|
|Trojan Extended Climax Control Lubricated||Yes|
|Glyde Maxi Premium Large||No|
|Trojan Pleasure Pack||No|
We’ve recently seen a rise in the popularity of condoms specifically designed to make you last longer in bed. These usually comprise of a thicker latex condom and a numbing agent in the form of a lubricant. Benzocaine condoms are the most popular type of numbing condoms, and have been known to offer a significant improvement over regular or thick condoms.
We’ve reviewed the best performance condoms available to clear things up. Below is a list of the best performance enhancing condoms, with value for money in mind.
Durex Performax Intense
Our first and favourite condom is the Perfomax Intense from Durex. The strength of the numbing agent is ideal for those who are trying performance condoms for the first time.
Despite the lubricant having a higher benzocaine content (5%) than the Trojan Extended Climax Control (4%), it’s doesn’t feel quite as numbing.
These latex condoms are ribbed and dotted, but the increase in sensation is nicely balanced with the numbing lubricant. We found that the ribbed condoms serve to speed things up for your partner giving you the best chance of reaching climax together.
They make for a comfortable fit as with all Durex condoms and smell surprisingly pleasant (not something often said about condoms!).Check Price
Trojan Extended Climax Control Lubricated
Next up we have the Extended Climax Control Condom by Trojan. Of all the condoms here, this seems to have the strongest numbing effect (4% benzocaine). It can significantly increase the duration of intercourse, though sometimes the numbing can be a little overwhelming.
As you can expect with a well respected brand, the fit is comfortable and the overall quality of the condom is outstanding. The lubricant is odorless which doesn’t do much to mask the strong smell of latex we all hate, but it’s not too noticeable unless used for oral sex.
We’ve rated it in close second place due it’s strength, after all, these condoms are designed to prolong intercourse and they do so very well.
There’s an added bonus of these being very reasonably priced when compared to other Climax Control condoms on the market.Check Price
Glyde Maxi Premium Large
Maxi Premium Large condoms by Glyde are a great choice for those who want to avoid numbing gels. The word “large” is thrown around quite a lot when it comes to condoms, but rest assured these are a good fit for the average gent.
Glyde pride themselves on being ethical, vegan and adhering to fair-trade and this puts their condoms at the top of the list for pleasantness, they are completely odorless.
The condom feels considerably thicker than regular Durex or Trojan, and as a result tends to dampen sensitivity a little bit. This is good news if you’re battling premature ejaculation. Overall we were really impressed by the quality of Glyde’s condoms and they come with plenty of lubrication to make things a little more comfortable.Check Price
Trojan Pleasure Pack
Next up, Trojan Pleasure Pack. These are fantastic value for money, the thickness of the condom rivals that of most performance enhancing condoms.
These are almost odorless (slight hint of a latex smell) and a little snug on the fit, though this is due to the thickness of the condom. While these are probably the best thick condoms to delay ejaculation, we’ve ranked them just below Glyde Maxi Premium Large due to a lack of lubrication in comparison.
The different textures and thicknesses keep sex fresh and exciting. They’ll also speed things up for her while the thickness of the condom slows things down for you, leading to all round better sex.Check Price
If you’re keen on lasting longer in bed but hate the sensation that condoms provide (many men do!), then you should take a look at some other options to see if they could be a better fit.
There are a whole host of creams, sprays and even supplements, that are designed to make you last as long as possible in bed. These products are getting better and better each day and are a far cry from the old supplements sold in bathroom stalls across the land.
From personal experience, we’d recommend looking at Promescent Desensitizing Delay Spray if you want an alternative to numbing condoms.
It’s designed with making delaying orgasms in mind, and it’s very good at what it does. They estimate that men can last up to 64% longer in bed, that’s an extra 6 minutes on an existing 10. Pretty big difference!
It’s super simple to use and even comes in a smaller trial size tube, we can’t recommend it enough. It’s the best option for delaying orgasm apart from using numbing condoms.
A Guide To Performance Enhancing Condoms
In today’s world, there are plenty of reasons to wear condoms, other than just preventing STD’s and pregnancy. There are a new breed of performance enhancing condoms, marketed with regards to achieving longer erections while also providing all the necessary protection. In the following article, I hope to cover each of the pros and cons to each a few products in order to help you decide if they are right for you!
Materials Used in Creation
Way back in the beginning, condoms were created using vulcanized rubber and were extremely popular, not only for their prevention of pregnancy and transference of disease but also because they were easily reusable, making them worth the money spent. Since then, condoms have come a long way, and are produced using many different material, primarily latex. While most manufacturers prefer to use latex, unfortunately, not everyone can make use of latex condoms due to allergies. With this information, condom companies found ways to create them from other materials, and now there are a total of 5 non-latex condoms on the market for men. One of those alternatives is polyurethane condoms.
Another option is the polyisoprene or SKYN condoms. These are made from hevea tree sap, and are the same strength and safety as Latex condoms.
As our world constantly changes, so too do uses for everyday items. Condoms weren’t excluded from this. Now days, you can find condoms in just about every demographic area. We can find them with ribs, scented, flavored, marketed to extend performance, marketed to provide a “warming” sensation for her, you name it, there’s probably a condom out there for it. Now each of these have their own pros and cons so lets break them down, starting with the ribs.
Pros – They make sex more enjoyable not only for the person wearing the condom but also their partner. In earlier articles, I’ve discussed spicing things up in the bedroom through the use of toys, and you can achieve a similar sensation with condoms. They can actually heighten the experience and provide extreme pleasure. They can even be used on penetrative toys.
Cons – These tend to be thicker, thereby requiring more lubrication. If not careful, excessive lubrication of the wrong kind may cause the condom to break down and not be as effective.
Pros – May enhance oral sex. Now, these come in handy if your partner has oral herpes which studies say affect approximately 60-80% of all adults. Another pro, is that if your partner is worried about swallowing, this is a perfect solution. It allows the wearer the ability to “shoot” into his partners mouth, with out the partner being in the position of having to choose whether to “spit or swallow”.
Cons – While they have been proven beneficial for oral sex, beyond that, they are iffy when it comes to providing protection against other diseases and pregnancy.
Warming Sensation Condoms
Pros – These are condoms that have been lubricated with special warming lubricants. The lubricant has been FDA approved, and is considered safe for use. The warming lubricant warms on contact and provides additional sensations and intimacy for both partners during use, while also providing the needed safety precautions and benefits.
Cons – In some users, they may experience a burning effect rather than the gentle warming sensation they hopes for. This could be an allergy to the lubricant, or the condom itself.
Extended Performance Condoms
Pros – These condoms are easily used, and utilize a substance called benzocaine that helps to numb the head of your penis, thereby extending your orgasm. After placing the condom on your penis simply give it a small “rub” as you would to ensure it it properly place, which allows the lubricant to come into contact with your skin and get to work. These condoms can be used discreetly, meaning your partner doesn’t have to know you may be experiencing premature ejaculation. Furthermore, these condoms have no transference to your partner, so he/she will not know that they have been used and in the small amounts used for condoms are safe for use by all persons.
Cons – While marketed to increase your performance time, you may find that it’s difficult to maintain your erection due to the benzocaine, or even experience a slight loss of feeling and pleasure due to the numbness. Some users have reported feeling a slight “itching” or “tingling” sensation, much like your face feels after having a tooth pulled, or dental work done and the medication is wearing off. Others however, have reported that they found difficulty in massaging in the lumps of the medication, once they’ve put the condom on. Overall, enhanced performance condoms may be useful in extending your climax, however, they also may project some unwanted complications.
How To Pick The Right Condom
While the style and reason for your condom choice can only be made by yourself and your partner, know that there are many variations available that can help in a number of ways. Regardless of the reason you choose your particular product, you should feel comfortable knowing you have made the best choice for your protection and that of your partner. In my personal relationship, we utilize the performance enhancing condoms because there are those nights where it seems like nothing we can do will prolong our “session” except these babies. We are a family with 4 sons, so every free minute we get, we want to make the best of it.
In the beginning, my husband did experience the tingling and itchy feeling from the extended performance condom, but, eventually after several uses, has either grown a tolerance to it, or simply puts it out of his head. Now, MY favorite ones, are the warming sensation with ribs! I’m not gonna mess around. Those babies make a world of difference! Often times we pair it with a bit of the warming sensation lubricant for added warmth, and holy crap!!! We are still relatively young (only in our mid 30’s) and enjoy getting the most from our time alone.
We have learned through trial and error which of the above listed products we like, and why. At no age should you feel like sex is a “chore” rather than a pleasure. While varying condoms cost different prices, it is worth it to find the ones that meet your needs the best, and provide the most satisfaction. After all, you deserve great sex, and these products are meant to increase your pleasure, as well as your partners.
So in closing, do yourself a favor! Head to your nearest drug store, and browse their selection! Find the ones you think will meet your needs best. Find that intimacy you want and strive for, and most of all enjoy yourself!
