Perfect for a weekend getaway or as a sexy gift, the LifeStyles Pleasure Collection is the epitome of convenience.
The box is so small, it easily fit into my small purse, so it could discretely be slipped into a laptop bag, briefcase, gym bag or backpack with no problem. Despite it’s diminutive size, this collection contains twelve condoms and three individual use lubricants. The breakdown of the contents are as follows:
4- Ultra Sensitive condoms
2- Everlast Intense condoms
2- SKYN non-latex condoms
2- Flavors & Colors condoms
2- Thinz Extreme condoms
3- Aloe & Vitamin E lube
I’m already a big fan of the polyisoprene LifeStyles SKYNs and the latex Ultra Sensitives, and already regularly use them as part of my safer sex routine, but hadn’t tried the other items in this collection until now. Here is my take on these items:
The Thinz Extreme are made from a super soft and incredibly thin latex material, akin to a lube-ier Crown Skinless Skin, that my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed. It makes me wish I could buy these condoms on their own, because I’d sure like to use more of them, without purchasing an entire Collection.
Both of the Flavors & Colors condoms I got were strawberry, which were a very vibrant bright red color. Never have I seen a redder condom. They smelled fantastic and had a delicious natural flavor that wasn’t overly sweet, which suits my palate perfectly. These condoms are very fellatio friendly, and could easily be turned into a flavorful dental dam for cunnilingus or anilingus.
The Everlast Intense condoms very much reminded me of the Durex Performax Intense condoms, as it has a climax control lubricant and it covered in raised studs. It definitely has a numbing quality to it, which can assist in lasting longer. But, it also has a strong odor, more like a Trojan smell than a LifeStyles one. Sadly, these condoms are not available for purchase outside of the Collection.
I really wish LifeStyles sold this lube outside of the Pleasure Collection, because good golly, this condom-safe lube is great. It’s the MVP of the Pleasure Collection, in my opinion. I’ve had issues in the past with aloe-based lube being altogether too goopy and lumpy in texture and consistency, but this has a slick and silky feel. This stuff is well-balanced and seriously long lasting. However, be aware that it does contain glycerine, so those with yeast infection tendencies may want to steer clear.
As a side note, I’d be very happy to receive this item as a gift, as it is packaged nicely and has a such a wide variety of condoms that it keeps the element of surprise going strong. It’s also a great way to try new condoms that you may not have tried otherwise.
Overall Rating: 5 Stars
Experiencing new ways to stay safe while having fun is always a plus in my book, and the LifeStyles Pleasure Collection makes it extremely easy to do so, all at a price under 10 bucks.
