It's the king of the condom in Japan and is catching on abroad as well. This company has some serious commitment to the happiness of its customers. They come in all ranges of sizes, colors, and thickness but the Okamoto brand is most famous for one thing – as thin as possible and strong as steel.
Although they require a little more lube than the usual condoms, they provide standard protection even with their minimal 0.02 mm thickness. Even English review sites praise them and liken them to wearing nothing.
A lesser known brand than Okamoto, but it has a strong following nonetheless. In particular, they offer the thinnest condom – 0.01 mm. Crazy thin, crazy strong, fun for everyone!
For reference, the skin on your eyelids is about 0.05 mm and the skin on your foot ranges from 0.10 – 0.20 mm. Again, go extra on the lube, thinner condoms are more prone to heat stress.
As the saying goes – it’s not the size that counts, it's… well… sometimes, size is important, especially when choosing condoms! Many foreign lads choose anything in Japan with ‘big’ or ‘magnum’ written on them. Pride is important, but so is a good fit. Unless you are built like Seabiscuit, do the legwork and test a few. You don’t want that sucker sliding off midway, if you know what I’m saying.
The debate between Western and Japanese condom sizes is a hot topic, but here is the … um… skinny on the issue: western condom sizes tend to be 54-55 millimetres in girth. while Japanese condoms have 52-53 millimetres. That’s right, a whopping 2 millimetres difference! So, the best methods are either to A) go into your happy place with a measuring tape, or B) buy a few types of condoms, try them on and see what works for you.
That's you sorted for your next trip to the Land of The Rising Sun then!
