Everyone has their own preferred form of contraception, whether it be classic, extra safe, latex free or ultra-thin. Often, we discover something that works and stick to it. For example, those who have experienced premature ejaculation may invest in condoms that delay orgasm. Then they'll continue to use that for a prolonged period of time. There's so much variation in contraceptive pleasure, you'd be a fool not to give everything a go.
There are so many variables that affect your sex life, do your best not to overly blame yourself for a lack of performance. Everyone has their bad days, sometimes your partner is just too damn sexy! The attitude is similar with ribbed condoms. Just because ribbed/studded contraception provides extra stimulation, you shouldn't rely on this to satisfy your partner.
Here are 5 of the most popular studded/ribbed condoms
Studded, ribbed or dotted contraception are all variations of raised nodes that have been strategically placed to provide extra sensation to him, her or both partners. Extra sensations are produced by the increased amount of friction that the various nodes provide. More friction equals more nerve stimulation, resulting in more enjoyment.

Sexually transmitted infections (sti's) should always be taken seriously! Although unlikely, there's always a possibility of breakage. If sensations suddenly feel different, take a moment to check if the condom is still intact. Classic reasons for any condom breaks are: using products that have passed their expiry date or storing conception incorrectly. Unplanned pregnancies can be caused by storing contraception in your wallet! Condoms that have been stored in wallets for longer than one night are prone to drying up. Only ever keep contraception in your pocket, if using it that night!
If you experience, itching, redness, bumps or swelling after using a latex condom. You may be allergic to latex or spermicide. Experiment with latex free contraception to help identify the cause of your reaction. If side effects remain the same, go to your nearest sexual health service immediately!
