To be honest I’ve been quite excited about reviewing this condom – not just because the only time I get to have sex is when I review a new product.
Pasante have tried and succeeded to break all of the rules in making this condom:
- It isn’t made from latex
- It is very very thin
- Its packaging looks more like a credit card – not as thin – perhaps 3.5 mm in its outer card wrapping (not featured in the picture supplied).
- The inner packing does not open as a normal condom would, so when you are opening the Pasante unique for the first time pay attention to the instructions.
I like the design and format of the packaging – it certainly feels better to carry around than a few loose, more trad. condoms.
First impressions on opening the packet:
the condom is rolled up into a thin tube and once unrolled looks a bit more like a traditional condom. It still has to be unrolled onto your penis and once it is has about a 2cm skirt at the base our your penis. The skirt has a little green sticker on it saying “penis this side”, so it is pretty difficult to not get it on the right way.
The material is made of seems pretty close to polythene in feel, but is a new synthetic resin called AT-10.
Mine had a sell by date of 2013 and we are now half the way through 2009 – so that is a pretty long shelf life.
Length and width:
this is quite a long and large condom that does not have much stretch in it material. A combination of the contained lubricant with the heat is design to cling to your penis and it certainly manages to do that.
I enjoyed having sex using this condom – you can tell it is thin and the differences in its design (including the packaging) made for a more exciting and enjoyable experience – for me at least.
Conclusion: I don’t know if this condom is for everyone, in fact I’m sure it’s not, but it easily performed well enough for me to say, “try it – it could become your favourite condom”. It is in my top 3 now!
