6 Condom Brands You’ve Never Heard Of

6 Condom Brands You’ve Never Heard Of


7 minute read

Tired of using the same old condom every time you shake the sheets?

Variety is the key to keeping things fresh in the sack. That goes for you AND your partner. Using the same condom brand, again and again, limits sensation and dulls anticipation.

There are literally hundreds of different condoms out there, and each one offers a new thrill.

Unfortunately, most pharmacies and grocery stores offer only a few basic brands. How boring.

Lucky for you, we’ve hunted down the kinkiest condoms and brands from around the world.

Here are our top 6 picks...

*You’ve never heard of these condom brands before! And some are pretty wild.

Here are a few condom brands you’ve never heard of (and HAVE TO try):

1. Okamoto

Condoms: Latex, Sheerlon latex, Polyurethane
Why they’re special: Makers of the thinnest condom available in the US

Okamoto condoms might not be well known in the western world, but they’re the #1 condom brand in Japan.

And for a good reason.

Japanese women are known for their silky soft, and smooth… touch. Okamoto has made it their goal to provide the thinnest barrier possible so you can feel every bit of your partner—and they can feel more of you too.

Okamoto features multiple condom styles, including the rare Sheerlon latex condom. This special kind of latex is thinner and more flexible than normal latex, so it provides the same durability and protection even when stretched really, really thin.

If you live in the states, look for Okamoto Wink condoms, which are a whopping 43% thinner than other condoms. The Okamoto Wink Closer is the thinnest condom in the USA. It feels like nothing’s there.

But our personal favorite is the Aloe condoms. Aloe makes the fit so much more comfortable and neutralizes any latex odors. Plus, it’s good for your skin!

Top Okamoto Condoms:

Okamoto 004 Zero Zero Four Ultra Thin Condoms

2. LELO Hex

Condoms: Latex
Why they’re special: Hexagonal structure called the most important condom innovation in decades.

LELO Hex is a new condom made by one of our favorite naughty brands. LELO makes some of the most advanced sex toys in the industry, and now they’ve completely reimagined the condom.

LELO took a hint from classical geometry and designed their condom with a hexagonal lattice structure, making it much more durable even when super thin.

They also look cool. Kind of like your junk is wrapped in futuristic body armor.

In terms of sensation, Hex adds a totally new perk with interior texture. That means you get an extra layer of pleasure from the inside out. The texture also strengthens the grip, so the condom won’t slide around or bunch up.

So far, there are only two Hex condoms to choose from, Original and XL. But we’re hoping to see much more from LELO soon.

Top LELO Hex Condoms:

3. Kimono

Condoms: Latex, Vegan
Why they’re special: America’s thinnest family of condoms

Kimono Condoms are a premium US condom brand that’s been around for over 30 years. They’re known as condoms for people who hate condoms.

Why? Because ALL of Kimono’s condoms are super thin—at least 20% thinner than the average condom.

Most condom brands might have one or two super-thin condoms to choose from. But that means if you go thin, you might need to sacrifice the texture, size, or shape you, love.

Kimono offers an entire line of extra-thin condoms. The barely-there feel is not just a gimmick for Kimono; it’s the standard.

Kimono’s classic MicroThin condoms are a must-try. They’re nearly as thin as the Okamoto 004 we spoke about above, but they’re a lot cheaper because they’re not shipped from Japan.

Kimono makes one the best thin and textured condoms, complete with ribs and dots for even more sensation.

The Kimono MAXX is also one of our top picks for large condoms. It’s got a tighter base and a flared head that makes it really comfortable for bigger guys.

Top Kimono Condoms:

$3.99

Kimono MicroThin Condoms Kimono MicroThin condoms are in the ULTRA-thin category of condoms. They’re thinner than the thinnest Trojan condoms. They’re thinner than the thinnest Durex condoms. In fact, they’re just about the thinnest latex condoms you can buy.  … Read More

4. Glyde

Condoms: Latex, Vegan, Flavored
Why they’re special: The first certified vegan and ethical condoms

Glyde Condoms are the natural choice for when you and your partner want to do as Mother Nature intended.

ALL Glyde’s condoms are 100% vegan and certified by The Vegan Foundation. They’re also certified cruelty-free by PETA and have the Fair Trade stamp of approval.

You won’t find any chemicals here. Glyde condoms are free from parabens, glycerin, benzocaine, and all the weird stuff they put in other condoms.

These condoms are about as sustainable as you can get. And, they also sustain your pleasure when it counts.

Glyde condoms are made with natural silicone lubrication, making for a super soft feel and a comfortable fit.

And, they specialize in flavored condoms made with natural, chemical-free flavors like wildberry, vanilla, and cola. They’re probably the tastiest condoms on the market.

5. Crown

Condoms: Latex, Colored
Why they’re special: The choice of porn stars

Crown Condoms might be the king of condoms you’ve never heard of. That’s because Crown are the choice condoms of the porn stars.

These ultra-thin condoms are known for their skin-like feel and maximal sensation. Some even claim that they’re the most sensitive condoms ever made.

That means more pleasure and more control for he who dons the crown. It makes sense that Crown is the condom of the stars.

Another perk? Crown condoms are not as expensive as major brands like Durex and Trojan, and they’re a lot cheaper than classy condoms like Hex and Okamoto.

It’s the condom for guys who value performance over fancy packaging.

6. NaturaLamb

Condoms: Lamb’s intestines
Why they’re special: The most natural, sensitive, and real-feeling condoms ever

This last condom you’ve never heard of is a bit of a cheat on our part. NaturaLamb is made by Trojan, the best-known condom maker in the country.

But the NaturaLamb brand often flies under the radar because... well, it’s a bit odd.

These condoms are made from real lamb intestinal membranes. This might seem strange (and gross), but lamb gut condoms are actually the oldest type of condom in the world.

They also happen to be the most luxurious condoms. The heat transfer, moisture, and overall sensation are off the charts.

This is because the lambskin membrane is semi-porous. It lets all your partner's heat and natural slickness through while catching all your spluge (NaturaLamb are just as effective at preventing pregnancy as normal condoms).

We’ll tell you this now: lambskin condoms are the most natural-feeling condoms you can get.

BUT…

They come at a price. Because of the porous membrane, NaturaLamb condoms are NOT approved to protect against STI transmission. So, don’t use these for one-night stands.

And, they are pretty damn expensive.

NaturaLamb condoms are luxury condoms for special occasions with a partner you trust.
