Best condoms?

Even if we have 4 kids, my wife will not allow me to have my balls cut off -- not yet at least. And since the pill is out of the question for various reasons and that we are not too keen on using other chemical/physical methods, our only solutions are either to play with fire (not a good idea, since my wife is super fertile -- hence the 4 kids), or use condoms.

I bought a box of SKYN condoms because the box looked nice, but they suck. Not the worst type I've used, but still.

I remember that Crown condoms were not so bad and well-reviewed. Are they still the best out there or are there better alternatives?

Have you discussed an IUD? That would be the cheapest option. Condom wise, the lamb and Trojan thin condoms are probably the best for feeling. There are some really good designer brand condoms but they’re $$. Probably go broke depending on frequency of course lol.

Can you freeze some of your swimmers and then get the chop?
What if there were no hypothetical questions?

Well, this would involve costs, and artificial fertilization is obviously more complicated than natural fertilization. I'll get the chop once we're ready.

If your wife got pregnant by accident, you'll wish you had frozen some swimmers and had the chop.

How about we just give the guy the advice he asked for, rather than being smart asses.
Sorry I can't help you OP. Don't need em, don't use em. But it's got me thinking. Maybe we could do a little testing and get back to you.
How about the rest of you helping out?

It's absolutely beyond me how men are ok with going through a surgery vs the simple IUD options out there. Absolutely nuts.

best condoms i've ever found are the lifestyles brand.
they are also probably the best price of all the mainstream brands.

literally the best bang for buck!

Well, it's not as simple as that actually. IUD have their share of risks and possible complications. A friend of ours recently had to undergo surgery since her IUD moved and couldn't be retrieved otherwise. It's simple from a guy's perspective, but I'm trusting my wife on this, and most importantly, respecting her decision.

Condoms are like bicycle seats, there's no one-size-fits-all, you have to try them all out until you find one that fits well and is comfortable. Instead of the drugstore, try visiting a sex toy store (not the seedy gross ones, but the sex-positive ones that are always women-owned). They'll have a selection of brands you won't find in the drugstore, and may even sell them as singles or even bundled together in a multi-pack of different brands.

That said, it sounds like your wife is open to having more kids, but are you? After our second child I went for the snip, even though my wife said she would consider having a third. I told her nope, I'm finished at two, I'm getting it done. If you want to stop now, the decision to get the snip is yours alone. Your body, your choice.
