If the only condom you’ve ever tried is a freebie from a festival or your school’s health office, you’re missing out. Condoms come in a variety of shapes, styles and fits that can improve both pleasure and protection. Here’s a guide to TrojanTM condom shapes to help you find your new favorites.
How is a Condom Supposed to Fit? It Depends on the Shape
Just like with pants, there are many ways to make a pair that have the same waist and inseam measurements. For example, 32” x 34” jeans come in slim fit, straight cut, boot cut or flared, and relaxed fit, and which you choose depends on your style and how they feel.
Condoms also come in slim, snug, or tight fit, straight fit, flared fit, and roomier fits. Knowing your condom measurements is only a part of the equation for determining whether a condom fits properly. Your preferences also play an important role for what it means for a condom to fit and feel great.
Some people prefer condoms to be tight and form-fitting, while others enjoy having more room for movement. The good news? Condoms come in many different shapes and sizes.
There Are Different Condom Shapes? Who Knew?
Don’t worry if you weren’t aware that there are different shapes of condoms. Sadly, most people don’t know this fun fact and haven’t tried different condom shapes. That means you’re missing out on important differences in how the condom feels during sex. Even if you like your current condom, trying a new shape brings new experiences, and you might find that a different shape takes sensation and pleasure to unimagined heights.
Straight-Walled aka Classic Condom Shape
The classic condom shape has straight, smooth sides and a reservoir tip. This is the shape that comes to most people’s minds when they think of a condom. But there are also condoms that are tight at the base then flare out to get wider, or condoms can also come with ribs or studs along the walls.
Bulbous or Relaxed Fit Condom Shapes
Bulbous-shaped condoms, such as Trojan™ Ecstasy, are relaxed at the top on purpose to allow for more freedom of movement – a turn-on for some and a turn-off for others. Straight wall condoms are parallel-sided all along the shaft, which can improve sensitivity for some but can feel too constricting for others.
Trojan Condom Shape Guide for the Best Fit and Feel
With more than 30 condom options, TrojanTM offers many different condom shapes as well as smooth, ribbed, and studded styles.
|Straight Wall, Reservoir tip aka “Classic Shape”
|This standard shape is the same width from the base to the head, with extra room at the tip to catch ejaculate. Great for folks who want a snugger, secure fit.
Trojan™ Ultra-Ribbed Armor
Trojan™ Ultra Ribbed
|Tapered or Flared, Reservoir tip
|The condom gradually increases in width from the base to the head. The wider head offers more room, and the tighter base helps reduce slipping off, especially after sex.
Trojan™ Magnum™ XL
Trojan™ Magnum™ Bareskin™
Trojan™ Magnum™ Ribbed
|Small Bulbous End, reservoir tip.
|The condom is the same width from the base to the area designed for the head, then it flares out for more room. If you have a bigger head, this might be more comfortable, or you might just prefer the feel.
|Large Bulbous End or “Light bulb” sometimes called Contoured. Trojan uses Comfort Fit to refer to this shape. Reservoir tip.
|The mid-point to the head of the condom is wider than the base, providing more freedom of movement and to accommodate a bigger head. The tip of the condom has extra space to catch ejaculate.
Trojan™ Her Pleasure
Ecstasy Trojan™ Intense Ribbed
Trojan™ Fire & Ice™
Trojan™ The Edge™
Trojan Her Pleasure™
|Super Bulbous End, No Reservoir tip, aka “Comfort Shape,” “Parachute,”
|From the middle of the shaft to the end, this condom allows more freedom of movement. The width of the condom at the head is significantly wider than at the base for the roomiest fit along the shaft without worry of slipping at the base. The tip of the condom is rounded without extra space at the tip, but the more spacious design has room for ejaculate.
Ecstasy Trojan™ Double Ecstasy
Ecstasy Her Pleasure
Fire & Ice™
|Straight-walled, no reservoir tip
|The condom has approximately the same width from base to tip. The end is rounded.
