The facts about thin condoms: all about safety and sensitivity
Thin condoms are all the rage. Hey, the closer to raw a condom can get, the better, right? But you’ve got questions about thin condoms such as: Are they reliable? Do they break more often? And do thin condoms even work and can you tell the difference?
Trojan™ BareSkin™ Raw™ is America’s thinnest latex condom*, and we’ve got the deets – and the research – about what makes thin condoms safe and sensational.
Thin condoms vs. other condoms: what’s the difference?
Which condoms are the thinnest?
Do thin condoms make a difference?
Many people believe that thinner condoms allow you to feel more heat and sensation. And America’s thinnest latex condoms are Trojan™ BareSkin™ Raw™.* For a barely there condom experience that gives the most feeling and sensitivity, thin condoms may feel not just better, but the BEST for you.

Still not convinced thinner condoms can make a difference? We challenge you to try them.
Yes, but do thin condoms actually feel better?
Although we know thin condoms allow for more sensitivity, everyone is different. Some people prefer how a slightly thicker condom feels, especially if you’re going for sensation such as with Trojan™ Ultra Ribbed or wanting to last longer. That’s why we make more than one type of condom, and even more than one thin condom.
Condom thinness is just one part of how a condom feels. For maximum feeling, be sure you choose a condom that fits you, and take into account condom shapes and other features that can ramp up sensation and sensitivity, such as ribbing, studding, and lube.
Do thin condoms work and are they safe?
Yes and yes. Thin condoms are as effective at preventing sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and pregnancy as standard condoms and the FDA holds thin condoms to the same testing standards.
Do thin condoms break more easily?
When condoms are thinner than the width of an average human hair, you might worry they aren’t reliable. The truth: Trojan™ condoms are triple-tested ensuring reliability.
Check out these facts. Our thinnest Trojan™ condoms, Trojan™ BareSkin™ Raw™ are tested to:
Hold nearly 5 gallons of air, more than the amount to inflate a basketball
Hold 10 ounces of liquid -- almost an entire beer or soda
Bottom line: condoms are tested to withstand way more pressure, volume, and stretchiness than they will ever get in their typical use. Of course, as with any condom, breakage is unlikely but possible if the condom doesn’t fit well, isn’t put on and/or stored properly, or you’re being particularly vigorous and athletic.
And with a thin condom (or any condom), make sure you check the expiration date and package before you put it on and store condoms properly.
