Durex Tingle are another new product in the durex condom range, they are the same as any standard condom in size and with their easy on and close fitting shape but they are special; in their silver and mint green coloured foil is a special extra addition, the condom is covered in a lubricant which is supposed to help create a tingling sensation thus supposedly heightening stimulation for both partners.
When we tore open the packet there was one thing that immediatly struck us, it wasn't the ugly pale shade of cream that was used to colour the condom, but the condom smelt incrediably strongly of mint, I wouldn't say it was an offensive smell, in fact it was quite the opposite but there was a downside (some may see it as a plus side) after using the condom you're left with that mintry fresh smell on your hand from hadling the condom and on other obvious body parts that the condom comes into contact with.
I definatly felt a tingling sensation during sex with this condom - you know that minty tignling feeling you get once you've brused your teeth? Imagine that in your nether regions! It was strange and almost felt like burning but it was also pleasurable. my partner on the other hand really didn't think it was any different to any other condom and in his words, "i'd rather use pleasuremax."
I would buy this condom again for my own pleasure as it made for a nice change, much nicer than the nasty flavourings and smells of the select range but certainly not as nice as the select tempations (chocolate) range.
As with most of the durex condoms Tingle are available in 3s and 12s, a pack of 3 will generally set you back £3.29 and a pack of 12 £9.99, not a lot to pay for safe sex and peace of mind.
I love these (and I'm a guy- they feel great for me too). I love the smell- it's much better than your average condom's smell!

Interesting review! The coating is simply a mint based lubricant (just like the ingredients of the Elemis Pure creams/facewash etc.) Shaoon, the side effects are thankfully medically remote, more chance of a reaction to spermicidal lubricant (on Durex Extra Safe etc...)
