And for those who love both ribbing and studs, there’s the Durex Pleasuremax, the ultimate in pleasure from Durex.
Looking for something in particular with your condom? Want to extend the experience for as long as humanly possible?

Interested in sensitivity and thinness? Durex Extra Sensitive Condoms are 20% thinner than the standard condom and have a fitted shape
