Definition of Ultra-thin Condoms

what is thin condom

Many condom brands on the market use "ultra-thin" and "super-thin" as their selling points, but the "thinness" of different companies is not the same. The Consumer Council compared all the brands with the word "ultra-thin" on their packaging. Among them, the average thickness of Sagami's "Original 0.01" ultra-thin condom is 0.025mm, while Durex's "Ultra-thin Tight-fit Condom" with the same claim of being ultra-thin has a thickness of 0.057mm. The difference between the two is about 1.3 times.

Are 0.01, 0.02, and 0.03 codes for ultra-thin condoms?

condom thickness 001

Many condom boxes have codes like 001, 0.01, 0.02, and 0.03 printed on them. What do they represent? The Consumer Council consulted the relevant agents and found that different agents have different explanations: Okamoto: the thickness of the 0.01 product is between 0.01 and 0.019mm. The thickness of the 0.02 product is between 0.02 and 0.029mm, and so on. LifeStyles: 0.01 and 0.02 are just model names and have nothing to do with thickness. Aoni: the "001" indicated on the product label is not related to the thickness of the product. Therefore, the codes 001, 0.01, 0.02, and 0.03 seen on condom packaging may not be related to thickness. Moreover, there is no unified size standard for codes like 0.01 in the entire industry. When buying condoms, try to pay attention to whether there are units of thickness like "millimeters" or "micrometers" in the packaging.

Which Condom Material is Thinner and Better?

condom materials

Condoms are made of rubber (latex), polyurethane (PU), and polyisoprene (PI). In the Consumer Council investigation, condoms made of PU material are the thinnest, such as "Okamoto 0.01 Hydro Polyurethane" with an average thickness of 0.019mm. Condoms made of PI material are the thickest, while condoms made of rubber material are in the middle.

Are there condoms with anesthetic? Are they safe?

Benzocaine condoms

Some condoms on the market claim to contain anesthetic (benzocaine) that can reduce sensitivity of the penis, making it less likely for men to ejaculate and effectively prolonging erection time. However, it is important to note that there is a chance of an allergic reaction to the medication. If consumers have concerns, it is recommended to consult a doctor before use. Urologist Dr. Wong Kwok-tin mentioned in an interview with the Consumer Council that men typically ejaculate within 3-7 minutes of vaginal penetration, and the use of anesthetic is one of the treatment methods for premature ejaculation.

Do thicker condoms make sex last longer?

condom thick

Dr. Wong stated that using thicker condoms can reduce sensitivity of the penis, making it less likely for men to ejaculate prematurely. However, he also cautioned that a short sexual intercourse duration may be due to problems with erectile function, or the ability to maintain an erection, which requires medical attention. Using thicker condoms is not a guaranteed solution to this problem.
