When I was a clueless teenager, one of my big gripes with condoms was that they just didn’t feel good. I think most young men probably feel the same way, so no surprise there. The trouble is that it’s often true. If you’ve tried out the condoms your local health services counsellor provided, you probably realized that they’re free for a reason, and it’s not just to avoid unwanted pregnancies.
Thankfully we’re all adults here, and there are much better options. I recently had a go of testing the new Trojan Willa condoms, and though I’m not completely clear on how they’re different from your typical Trojan condoms, they meet my criteria for a good condom:
What makes a good condom?
- They don’t smell strongly of latex.
- They’re well lubricated, but not so much that the lube is oozing out.
- I don’t notice that I’m wearing one.
That’s it. I’m a man of simple tastes, and I’m not looking for anything too crazy. If it fits well, doesn’t smell strongly of latex, and isn’t uncomfortable for my partner either, then that about does it.
What are Trojan Willa condoms?
Trojan markets these condoms as being ultra-thin, with a skin-to-skin feel. I would say that these condoms are exactly as advertised. The biggest perk for me was that the lubrication felt quite natural, which was a pleasant surprise. I believe the lube includes aloe, so perhaps that’s a factor?
After that, the condom largely faded into the background as it should.
I was testing the ribbed version of this condom, though neither myself nor my partner noticed much from the ribbing. No complaints on that front from either of us, though that may be a factor for you.
Where can I buy Trojan Willa condoms?
It looks like these condoms are currently only available at your nearest Target location. As to whether that’s a time exclusive or a permanent deal, I’m honestly not sure. Either way, I’m happy to recommend these any time someone asks me for condom suggestions, which happens more often than you might expect during those late night drinking sessions over Zoom.
