4 Reasons to Use a Condom Tonight (Besides Avoiding STIs or Pregnancy!)

Our sex lives change throughout all of life’s stages, but one thing should always be a constant—sex should be safe and fun for everyone involved. This week is National Condom Week, and we’re celebrating with a few reminders that condoms are more than safer sex barriers. We’ve known since high school sex ed that condoms can prevent unwanted pregnancies and STI transmission (which is awesome!). But what are condoms doing to make sex not just safer, but also more pleasurable? Enter Vibrant’s condom collection—specially curated with all types of bodies and relationships in mind. We’ve compiled four reasons to use a condom tonight; see what condoms can add to your next romp.

1. Add Texture

While we’re sure the feeling of your partner’s skin is fantastic, trying a new sensation is a great way to add a twist to an old favorite move. Studded and ribbed condoms add feel-good friction without a lot of effort, so you experience more pleasure without breaking a sweat.

Try: Trojan Ultra Ribbed Ecstasy Condoms and Trojan BareSkin Condoms

2. Add Color

Just like wearing a sweater in your favorite color can brighten your day, condoms with a pop of color can bring a smile to the bedroom. Bright colored condoms—from wrapper to sleeve—can help partners to loosen up, laugh a little, and remember that sex is fun!

3. Add Flavor

You know that sex looks good and feels good, but have you tried making it taste good? Make your next oral adventure a tasty one with a flavored condom. Be extra motivated to go in for another lick, or get creative during foreplay and put the condom on with your mouth. As you roll it on with your lips, it’ll be way more enjoyable tasting berries instead of latex. (Just remember: flavored condoms are only meant for oral so keep them above the belt!)

4. Add Personalization

Sex is not a cookie-cutter operation. Each body is different in size, shape, and preference—and your sex toys and tools should embrace that! Feeling like something has been made just for you will make you feel extra sexy.

Try: Glyde Ultra, Glyde Slimfit, and/or Glyde Maxi

Now that you know the four reasons to use a condom tonight—other than for safer sex and a barrier to pregnancy—you can go out and give them a try!
