Condom Review: Caution Wear Wild Rose

Before a drastic rebranding of this Caution Wear brand condom, they heralded the name Speed Bumps. But, up from this demise grew a new, dewy, blossoming Wild Rose from the crack of the road. Was testing these condoms a thorn in my side or did we come out smelling like a rose? Read our condom review to find out!

CondomDepot-Review-HI-cautionwear-wild-roseMaybe they changed the name of this condom because vaginas like it so much. The name Wild Rose, with its pink polka-dotted wrapper appeals to feminine preferences more so than the Speed Bumps name, which seemed like a condom you’d wear during a bathroom romp at the Daytona 500, or during a City Planners’ after party.

This naturally colored latex condom features closely knit ribs, which significantly increases the heat and friction between both partners. This is particularly exhilarating for the receiving partner, hence the former name. In fact, the ride may be so fast and  bumpy that half way through, she may wish she had left her compression sports bra on.


Perhaps this is also because the Wild Rose is the second largest of all the Caution Wear condoms at a whopping 8.25” x 2.” It is only exceeded in size by the practically enormous Caution Wear Grande which is 8.8” x 2.12.” But, the ribs do not go the full 8.25″ length of the condom, which makes it more comfortable and sensitive around the untextured and smooth head and base areas. This condom seems super thin in these two sections, which is quite rare for a textured condom.


The scent and taste of the Wild Rose are fairly neutral. There’s nothing great to report about it, but it’s definitely not repulsive or annoying. It’s not floral or rose-infused in any way. However, since this is a ribbed condom, it’s not really intended for use during oral sex.

Much like other Caution Wear condoms, the Wild Rose has an unmatchable caliber of silicone-based lubrication, much akin to an industry favorite lube, Pjur Man Basic. But, due to the increased warmth of the rubbing ribs creating friction on the orifice walls, additional lubrication is recommend for ultimate comfort and safety for both partners. Wild Rose condoms also have a reservoir tip for added safety.CAUTIONWEAR-WILD-ROSE-FBFinal Verdict:

The extreme thinness, durability and superior lubrication, mixed with its plethora of bumpy ribs makes the Wild Rose a highly coveted larger-sized condom choice. You’ll surely drive your partner wild with desire, all while staying safe, with the surprisingly romantic Wild Rose condom.
