Our Test Results
Based on our results, we were able to draw some conclusions about the capacity and durability of certain brands and/or types of condoms. Not surprisingly, the Magnum brand, which is designed to accommodate extra-large jimmies, took top prize, demonstrating a truly impressive ability to hold water. We had to stop filling the Magnum XL before it actually burst to avoid the risk of a flash flood. Not surprisingly, the poorest performer was the Vis A Vis Ultra Thin, holding a paltry 2 ½ gallons. That ultra thin latex may give better sensation, but it won’t stand up to much pressure. The LifeStyles Snug Fit condom also demonstrated a predictably lower than average capacity. Trojan’s Her Pleasure condom and the Kimono Sensation condom proved surprisingly tough, rivaling the performance of the Magnum brand. We think this was due to the texturing on the condom surface, which requires thicker latex and may contribute to the condom’s ability to withstand pressure.
