When it comes to condoms, Durex is here to help you tailor your satisfaction and find the right condom for you, because when it fits right, it feels right. It’s good to experiment until you find a condom that’s right for both you and your partner, and ribbed and dotted condoms can be a great place to start. If you’re not sure what a ribbed condom means or would like to find out more about condoms with dots, read on to discover whether a textured condom could be the perfect match for you.
What are ribbed condoms?
You’ll be able to see that ribbed condoms have little raised ridges and lines running around the external circumference of the condom. What are ribbed condoms for? Well, they are designed to increase sensitivity during penetrative sex. The ridges may seem quite small and barely raised, but you’ll be surprised at how different they can make sex feel for some people. The ridges have been strategically placed so that the person wearing the condom and their sexual partner can both feel them. This can add extra sensations to sexual intercourse for both partners.
What do ribbed condoms do?
Ribbed condoms are designed to increase the sexual pleasure for both partners during sex, whilst helping provide protection against sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and reducing the risk of unwanted pregnancies. They can be ideal for those of you don’t get enough sensation with standard condoms, or those who are looking to feel more and different sensations with their condom use. When you use rib condoms, the extra texture can lead to greater friction and enjoyment. The ridges can add pleasure to both the penis and the vaginal wall giving extra sensation to both of you.
What are dotted condoms?
In addition to ribbed condoms, you can also buy dotted condoms. Dotted condoms have specially designed raised dots on the outside of the condom. These raised dots form a series of bumps that are strategically placed to be felt during penetrative sex. The rougher and varied surface texture can create extra friction compared to smooth condoms. Whilst you may not think a few dots can make a difference to sexual intercourse, the varied texture of these little bumps can increase excitement and sensation exactly where you want it during sex.
What do dotted condoms do?
Like ribbed condoms, dotted condoms are designed to increase the sexual pleasure for both partners during sex, whilst helping protect against STIs and reducing the risk of unwanted pregnancies. The extra friction compared to smooth condoms can result in greater stimulation and enjoyment for the receiving partner. And if your partner’s happy, it can heighten sexual pleasure for you both. Dotted condoms can be particularly useful for those of you who would like to feel more sensation during sex, or if you simply want to mix it up in the bedroom
Why use ribbed and dotted condoms?
Textured condoms, like ribbed and dotted condoms, have been designed to enhance sexual pleasure and intimacy. This adds another level of intensity to the bedroom to heighten sexual pleasure. The ribs and dots along the shaft of the condom provide a contrast to the typically smooth surface of regular condoms, helping you get more out of sex.
Experimenting with different types and textures generally spices things up and can bring a lot of extra fun to the bedroom. Textured condoms have been engineered and strategically formed to add extra pleasure in the spots you need it – they can bring added arousal and adventure to your sex life. It’s all about having some fun between the sheets experimenting and discovering what feels good for both of you. For even more variety, the majority of our lubes and pleasure gels can be used with ribbed and dotted condoms, too – just remember to always check the labels before use.
