Condom Review: Trojan Pure Ecstasy

The Trojan Pure Ecstasy is a lightbulb-shaped condom, much like the Trojan Her Pleasure Ecstasy and the Trojan Magnum Ecstasy.

The idea is that additional head room provides more sensation and freedom of movement than a straight fit or contoured condom. I did find this aspect of the condom to be a positive one, in theory, but in reality the extra bunches of latex were quite noticeable, and not in a, ‘pure ecstasy,’ kind of way.

Since I know enough about condoms to realize the importance of a reservoir tip, I was less than thrilled to try out a condom without one, as I felt like it may be less safe than a traditional condom. Granted, upon use, this condom held its own and did not leak or break, however, I do enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having a specially made compartment for ejaculate to reside in.

All that being said, let’s talk appearance. I really wasn’t expecting the Pure Ecstasy to be so darn opaque. I mean, a larger head size is great, but without being able to see the head at all, I felt like my eyes were missing out on the action. This condom instantly transformed him into being a sort of obscured participant- like he was wearing a white censor bar during sex. Even colored condoms, like the Impulse Plum Crazy are far more translucent than this cloudy condom. Therefore visually speaking, the Pure Ecstasy is a total bust.

Was I enthralled by a textural explosion? Eh, not so much. Prior to use, had I not known that this condom is designed with ribs, I never would’ve noticed they were there. Basically, these are some really piddly ribs that didn’t tickle my fancy whatsoever. If you’re going to make a condom with ribs, really make one with ribs, like the Durex Extra Sensitive Ribbed. I feel like these ribs were an afterthought to this condom instead of a well thought out textural plan. The design and the execution of the design reveal this lack of pre-manufacturing planning.

Final Verdict:

The Trojan Pure Ecstasy does not live up to its name in any sense of the word. Its useless ribs and opaque color don’t make for a pleasurable experience. For a more enjoyable light bulb shaped condom, I much prefer the Trojan Ultra-Enz Comfort.

Overall Rating: 2 Stars
