I first encountered Ansell's range of vibrating condoms whilst browsing through Bek's photo blog. Curious, I went straight to the nearest pharmacy I could find to purchase this elusive vibrating condom to see what its all about.
Ansell vibe4u Vibrating Condom comes in a nicely designed red package - a nice departure from the ubiquitous "man and woman holding hands" type packaging that Durex seems to favour. For our convenience, the battery is included for the vibrating ring.
I can't believe I paid AUD$12.95 (RM35) for this thing! This is just one condom and some buzzing cock ring we're talking about! Mannn... the money I'm sacrificing for this site.
The top of the box tells you once again that battery is included, so that you don't have to rush off to 7-Eleven to purchase some batteries in the middle of your coital session. The condom is regular size, which is no good to me since mine is extra large.
Here's the content of the box: an Ansell catalogue, a vibe4u instruction booklet, a regular condom, and the vibrating ring. I kinda like the wrapping of the vibrating ring. It reminded me of the crappy toys that came with the Ding Dang chocolates.
The Ansell catalogue is damn cool. It shows you the range of different condom shapes available, so you choose the one that fits you better. Kinda like Levi's jeans. I'm still waiting for a Boot Cut Condom to come along.
The vibe4u instruction booklet sheds some light on the use of this product. Apparently, the battery on the vibrating ring lasts for fifteen minutes only and is not replacable. It also asks you to take some precautions when using the vibrating ring, such as:
- Do not use under the influence of alcohol or drugs (What? C'mon! I'm just using a vibrating ring, not a freakin' CAR!)
- Do not swallow (And why exactly would I swallow it?)
- Keep away from children (sorry Michael Jackson, this one is not for you.)
Oh look! Pornography on kennysia.com! Teehee. Here, Ansell shows you how to put on a condom. Frankly speaking though, I think the illustration sucks (no pun intended). Don't you think the penis look like some sort of carrot wearing a baseball cap?
Anyway, its time for me to experiment with this vibrating condom thing. I wanted to try it on myself, but my genitals went on strike at the thought of appearing on the internet. So once again I had to find a sacrifice. Meet my blueberry flavoured Vodka Cruiser.
Here's a picture of the vibrating ring up close. The AUD$1 coin (similar in size to the RM1 coin) is there for comparison. The ring itself is made of some gel-like silicone. There's a little switch on the side there. You push it in and the gentle vibrations will start.
The Ansell condom itself is made in India. I have to say, it comes very very very lubricated. There's a slight, but not overwhelming, latex smell.
Okay, so I was wrong about it being just a regular-sized condom. Look at THAT, it fits the whole 7/8th of the ENTIRE BOTTLE of Vodka Cruiser!!! So much for a regular size. I reckon these condoms must have been made for elephants down in India!
This is what it looks like when you put the vibrating ring on. Looks odd. How often do you see a bottle of alcohol with a vibrating ring around its neck? I switched on the vibrating ring, and felt a gentle buzz permeating to the palm of my hand. Pleasurable.
So what do I think about this whole vibrating condom thing? Well its a novel idea, certainly worth trying out on something else other than a bottle of alcohol. But I reckon the AUD$12.95 price tag is a little bit steep. If a normal condom cost AUD$1, you're paying an extra AUD$12 just for some stupid vibrating ring that can last for only 15 minutes. I don't know, but 15 minutes seems a little bit short. *grins*
1. Get a normal condom
2. Get some rubber band
3. Using rubber band, tie your mobile phone to the condom
4. Call your own phone. And don't bloody answer your phone while its still attached to your dick dammit!
It works the same way, I swear!
