Unequaled Luxury Latex
Over 15 years in the making, with the goal of creating the most pleasurable latex condom ever, Naked's "Pleasure Fit Technology" was developed with a German condom company recognized worldwide as the most innovative in the industry.
Naked was founded on the principal of making a condom that feels better because it is designed better and produced better.
Ultra-thin soft latex and Naked’s patented design allow for a balance of thinness and sensitivity. Understanding that the perfect fit is truly essential, the condom is available in these widths: 49mm, 52mm, 54mm, 57mm (to securely fit at the base of the penis)* and then features a flared pleasure-shaped body. With the greatest attention to detail each condom is coated with a luxury silicone-based, hypoallergenic lubricant made in Germany exclusively for Naked. This internationally patented condom is manufactured in a state of the art facility. Naturally, even the condom foil has been perfected to provide the most luxurious and safe experience possible.
One box contains six condoms.**
*Note on sizing: the dimensions are in reference to the measurement at the base of the penis and the condoms flare out wider from there – 49mm (snugger, secure-fit) green foil/box; 52mm (standard-fit) red foil/box; 54mm (roomier-fit) black foil/box; 57mm (larger, generous-fit) purple foil/white box
**Please also note that while an interior seal was cut by the manufacturer due to an error (the interior seal was impossible to cut without a blade), the box is shrink-wrapped to ensure product integrity.
If you are like me, and you do your research to find the best condom available, you will see a major difference in this condom when compared to others on the market. This condom has something they call "Pleasure Fit Technology", which is a fancy way to say that the base in smaller, and the top 2 thirds taper out to allow lots of room for movement. One of the main complaints of using condoms for men is the loss of sensitivity. This condom meets us halfway, but providing the space for movement. This movement gives a similar sensation to not wearing a condom at all.
If you are looking for the perfect condom with great sensitivity, you will not be disappointed.
This bad boy shot straight up to elite status! It was absolutely superb. We have three favorites that have received 5 out of 5 stars: Unique Pull, Unique Plus, and Sagami Original 0.02 (all nonlatex condoms). Just below that, we have our four elite latex condoms that have received 4 out of 4 stars: One Vanish, Kimono Microthin, Trojan Bareskin, and EXS Air Thin. Now comes the Naked Luxury Condom, which we have placed right in between the other two groups at 4½ out of 5 stars.
The packaging was very nice. It gave the product a first-class feel as we opened it up. I'll be honest, though; once I felt the thickness of the rolled up condom with my fingers, I had serious doubts about how it was going to perform. I say this because, as you can tell by our list of nonlatex favorites and latex elites, we are very picky about condom thickness as this is probably our number-one factor in determining whether or not we like a given product.
We were both very pleasantly surprised, though. Despite the fact that this condom is a little thicker than the ±.045 mm range that we consistently stick to when it comes to latex, it actually outperformed those thinner latex condoms, which is pretty incredible! So, we learned that although thickness is still an extremely important factor and is often a great indicator of how much we will or won't like a condom, it's not everything. There are other factors that can tip the scale regardless, and that's what happened in this instance.
I think this experience all came down to latex quality. The quality of the latex used to make the Naked Luxury Condom is probably the best I've ever encountered, and this resulted in two factors that really heightened the experience: (A) heat transfer and (B) feel.
The heat transfer was excellent. It wasn't quite as good as what we get with nonlatex condoms, such as Unique and Sagami, but it was every bit as good as the four elite latex condoms mentioned above (even though it was slightly thicker). So, we were very pleased with the exchange.
Where this condom really stood out, though, was in the second factor, which was the feel of the latex. This thing felt so soft, smooth, and silky that my wife couldn't stop talking about how amazing it felt. She said, "I know it's thicker than our other latex ones because I notice that it's there a little more than I do with the thinner latex ones, but it's almost as if I don't even care that I notice it because it feels so good."
And, I think that was the most interesting takeaway from this test. Our primary goal has always been to find the condoms that do the best job of making us think they're not there. This one didn't do that. It didn't even attempt to do that, but it still performed very well because instead of trying to make us think it wasn't there by being as thin and unnoticeable as possible, it made its presence known but in a very positive rather than negative way. Instead of saying, "You won't even know I'm here," the Naked Luxury Condom says, "Oh, I'm here, all right. Now let me show you what I can do for you." :-D
And, I suppose that's what they had in mind when they chose the name "Luxury Condom." ;-)
Okay, so how did this condom make us greedy? Well, when we received our box of six, I mentioned to my sister-in-law and her husband that we would give them a couple to try whenever we saw them next. However, that was before we had actually tried them. Once we opened them up and started using them, we instantly regretted having made that offer. After the second test run, as my wife was coming down from her climax, she looks at me and says, "Did you say you would give them a couple of these things? Do you think there's a way we could get away with just giving them one, or not giving them any and hoping they forget about it?" Suddenly, we weren't feeling as generous as were were on the front end... :-D
Anyway, the only reason I placed this one at 4½ stars instead of 5 is that we still think the heat transfer of the extremely thin nonlatex condoms is just a tad better. Plus, I maintain that my preference would still be to not feel the condom at all if possible, which is something that Unique and Sagami do a superb job at. That said, however, if you have to feel a condom, this is the one to go with as it feels exquisite.
Bottom line: The Naked Luxury Condom is a top-shelf latex condom that redefines how a condom should feel and actually even succeeds at making you glad you felt it. It was good enough to make the two of us, who are very picky about not wanting to feel a condom at all, actually enjoy its soft, silky caress.
I would most definitely use this product again and will actually probably end up signing up for a subscription (in addition to our Unique Pull subscription).
Overall, this condom had a small latex smell and left a residue on my hand, but those negatives were easily made up by the great engineering and quality of the whole product! The foreign judge in me wants to give it a 4 or 4.5 for those small negatives, but that score wouldn't do this condom justice.
Ditto others on good lubricant and lack of odor.
I just know if felt really good and recommend this brand. Enjoy!
Great condom that we used for vaginal sex. While it's probably not my favourite condom, I would definitely use it again.
I'm not quite as smitten with it as Mrs.S' husband, but it's definitely one of the top condoms I've had the pleasure of using.
The packaging is attractive and very easy to open. One thing that threw me a bit off was how BIG the individual packages are. These ones remind me of the Trojan Ecstasy line of wrappers. I'm not sure if they wanted to make it seem like you need bigger than average condom (and hence the wrapper needs to be larger), or if it is a design to make sure you don't damage the condom, but it threw me off a little.
The latex itself felt super silky, smooth, and of a high quality. There was also just enough lubricant to keep things comfortable and long lasting, but without making cleanup difficult.
One thing I was surprised about was the smell. I definitely got a strong latex smell with this condom, which I don't find with other high quality condom brands.
I used the 52 mm version and it fit very well. The base was snug, and the shape of the condom (wider towards the end) meant that it allowed my foreskin to move and was very comfortable and pleasurable for my uncircumcised penis.
I would LOVE to know what the full dimensions of these are. Even though I got the XL version (57mm), which puts these condoms in line with Magnum XL, Skyn Large, etc. I found them more comfortable and better fitting. Very odd. I attribute this to maybe more space mid-shaft and around the head vs. the other condoms? I am unsure but was pleasantly surprised. I didn't feel suffocated like I do with a lot of XL condoms, so this was nice!
The first thing you will notice as you remove this bad boy from it's luxury looking purple wrapper is...LOTS AND LOTS OF LUBE!! Lol. They did not go light on this puppy, which is great, because I found it so easy to put on because of that. A lot of condoms become a job rolling on, but because of the heavy lube, this slid on nicely.
The feeling, though not as great as unique plus, was much better than some condoms1 I would put this on par with the feeling of Skyn Large, and SOOOOOO much better than other XL condoms like Pasante King (as I am about to review here in a second).
I noticed no foul odor coming from the condom either, which was great.
All in all a very surprising condom, in a good way!
Great condom! We used it for vaginal first, then moved to anal.
My husband says that his favorite condom overall is still the Unique Pull, BUT, this one knocked the others down in the ranks and takes the number 2 spot.
While the Unique Pull has sort of a painted-on fit like a second skin, if you will, this condom has a loose fit that begins about mid-shaft while the rest of the condom sits securely in place. To my surprise, my husband enjoyed this fit and said it added more stimulation with his every move. A little note about the loose latex: it makes....squishy sounds. He didn't care, but I'm all like, "Is that.....ME?!" in my head. It wasn't me, it was the sound of latex, lube and friction. Not a deal breaker, just a little FYI for anyone who might not experience ASMR from squishy sounds lol.
It comes lubricated, which is nice. A bit greasy, but nice. Took a little more effort to clean off than say Uberlube or some of the others we've tried lately, but I have no complaint about it. My hubby also liked the lubricant and I think we both agree it's likely the perfect and only lube you'd want to use with this condom, especially since it comes with plenty already on it. For anal, however, we did use our sample bottle of Sutil Luxe Body Glide, which I will be writing a review for also. ;)
There was minimal latex scent. We know it is latex and latex can only smell like latex, but it did have more of a latex scent than the EXS condom, which had an almost undetectable latex scent. Not a big deal, it didn't take away from the experience, it just gave a quick first impression when the package was torn open that wasn't the most flattering, but it quickly redeemed itself!
Speaking of packaging. This is by far the easiest condom packaging to open. Dare I say that opening it is satisfying in a way? I think it is. I took the wrapper just now and was able to make a clean, easy, controlled tear in it in 8 different places without separating it into more than one piece. It sounds silly, but it really does make a big difference from all the other countless condoms we've opened, all of which are no where near as easy or graceful as this one was to open. This is how all condoms should be wrapped.
As far as how it felt for me, I actually did notice that my hubby felt more like...my hubby with this one on. Like the Unique Pull, it allowed me to feel him as if he wasn't wearing a condom at all while other condoms tend to make his penis feel more like plastic.
Why I love this one for anal above all others:
For anal, this is a GREAT condom! Since the fit is loose around most of the penis, while he is in such a tiny, tight place, the condom actually reduced and even eliminated any resistance as he moved, if that makes sense. The condom seemed to make a barrier between us that allowed my husband to move more freely while making it more comfortable for me also.
I think that covers it. We really enjoyed it and would definitely love to use this brand again!
This in my opinion is a great condom and here is why it is thin it offers plenty of sensitivity and while i was using it i felt as if i was not using a condom at all...Is it possible to love a condom? (wow did i actually write that i despise condoms for the most part) well anyway if it is possible to love a condom i love this one and would definitely use one again.
PS: I must say i really liked the classy packaging :)
I feel like this product warrants a special review as it is so new and promises so much, therefore I am going to be writing this review in two parts: First Impressions, and Post-Using.
The packaging is so pretty!! It looks like it is an Apple product the way that the box opens and the way the wrappers perfectly fit on each side of the box. The instructions included are also printed on a paper that just feels expensive. The outer packaging on the condoms themselves seems sturdy and not at all easy to mess with the integrity of the wrapper. I think that they really are making sure that the entire experience luxurious and well thought out. Although it is a latex condom, I am excited to try these and see if they live up to their non-latex luxury counterparts.
OH, MY GOODNESS. This condom was fabulous.
The wrapper itself tore with ease yet feels very secure in the fact that if one were to throw this in a wallet before a night out, it would hold up. (I'm not saying definitively that it would and would highly advise against that. I have had plenty of guys say they have a condom on them and think I'm crazy for refusing to use it when the air is no longer in it and proceed to use mine. I have found Altoid tins tend to work well for protecting them and aren't conspicuous.)
The latex is as soft as they advertise it as. I barely felt it at all, and it did not dry my vagina out like other condoms do. The lube that was already on it was very soft and slippery. It felt like a quality lube, however, since this was a thin condom, I used some Uberlube to slick it up some more. This worked like a charm and performed beautifully.
The fit on my boyfriend was also great. The condom was loose on the shaft and head, just as the outline of the condom shape said it would be and perfectly snug at the bottom to prevent any spills. I would say that this idea is like the male version of the FC2; it has a large bag feel, but instead of being a large ring on the outside of a vagina (or anus), it has a perfectly sized band that is on a penis. The band itself was also very soft and malleable making it comfortable (according to the boyfriend).
I did lick it to see if there was a taste and there wasn't anything that I noticed. However, I did notice a latex smell to it, but with how amazing this condom was otherwise, I quite easily looked past this.
All in all, I would say most definitely try this condom. I was so impressed with how well it did, I will definitely be purchasing more. These definitely are luxury condoms and the entire experience is worth every penny. I would say that this is definitely on par with the non-latex condoms in every way.
