Colored condoms can be a fun addition to your sex life. I like to say that they add some fashion to your passion. Maybe you've always wondered what your partner looks like in red. Maybe you think that fellatio is more fun in fuchsia. Visual stimulation can be an important part of the sexual experience. Colored condoms can be an interesting way to spice things up. 

Price :

You can buy a basic supply of colorful condoms for no more than you'd pay for any other latex condom.

Some of the more intricate color variations, however, may come at a more premium price. Just make sure you're buying real condoms, not novelty products

Ease of Acquisition :

Many drug stores will have colored condoms for sale. More interesting variations can be found online.

Use During Vaginal Intercourse :

Colored condoms are suitable for use anywhere a normal latex condom would be appropriate. Just make certain that they're not being manufactured as a novelty product. The box should say that they've been approved to protect against pregnancy and STDs

Use During Oral Sex :

Colored condoms can be a fun accessory for making oral sex safer. You can match them to your man's tie...

Use During Anal Sex :

Haul out some of your good water or silicone based lubricant. There is no reason not to use a colored latex condom for anal sex.

The Verdict:

Colored condoms can be a fun way to spice up your sex life.

Colorful latex condoms come in solid colors and patterns. They also come in both lubricated and unlubricated designs. They provide a nice pop of visible stimulus to oral sex and generally just add some variety to your safer sex kit. One thing to be careful of. You need to make certain that any colored condoms you buy are designed to be used for safe sex and not just as novelty items.

If they are being sold strictly as a novelty, there should be a statement on the box to that effect. It's important to be very certain you're not buying a gag gift that will really make you gag...
