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?

My wife and I are perfectly aware of the alternatives, thank you. This comment sounds rather chauvinistic.

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?

And how does it sound coming to rfd for advice about condoms? How old are you? 14?

What the hell are you talking about? RFD is not only about discussing "deals", but also general consumption choices, hence the "Health and Wellness" forum. No, I won't "tell my wife to visit our family doctor". We have 4 kids and we know the different birth control options -- whether they are natural, physical or chemical -- perfectly well. There are various reasons, which are none of your business, why we choose to use condoms. If this subject makes you unconfortable, don't read or follow this thread.

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

No. It doesn't make me uncomfortable. It makes me cringe. And since you put out your sex life on RFD, yes it is my business.

So to summarize, you know all the super medical birth control options, but you are somehow unaware about condom choices which is to many people a very personal preference.

You could simply read the reviews, but instead you choose to call a poster chauvinist.

A cringe worthy topic indeed.

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.
