Jack and Diane Review – Lifestyle Skyn

Posted by Jack & Diane on March 10, 2009

Little ditty…’bout Jack and Diane…and Lifestyle Skyn.


The condomologist’s review of any type of condom we can get our hands on begins with the Lifestyle Skyn. If you visit, first thing I noticed was the fact that they are marketing this product as “Wearing Next to Nothing.”  Jack and Diane would agree with that claim 100%.  The overall experience was the best we have both had in a condom.  Let’s break it down…


  1. Throwing It On – 5 Points
    1. Very easy to put on.  Rolled out easily, not overly gooey from the lube.  Good immediate feeling.
    2. No strong rubber odor filling the room.
  2. During – 10 Total Points
    1. Both Jack and Diane loved the immediate insertion.  Diane even asked Jack to pull out and check to see if it was still on.
    2. The condom stayed in place the entire time and as we both got into it more, we both forgot it was on.  (Which I would assume is the highest compliment you can pay to the manufacturer.)
    3. No readjustment necessary.  No extra lube was necessary.  Diane was happy with the fact that it didn’t dry her out either.
  3. Finish – 5 Points
    1. The condom did not break, and the overall experience was awesome.  Taking it off did not hurt at all and did not leave a strong rubber smell in the room.  It did not leave a ring or red irritation around Jack’s penis either.


Lifestyles is pushing these product highlights:

  • New SKYN condoms provide a softer, more natural feel and have been clinically proven to enhance sensation.
  • Combines the strength of premium latex with the sensitivity of an ultra thin condom for the skyn-to skyn sensation
  • Long lasting, ultra smooth lubricated enhances the experience!
  • Each condom electronically tested to meet U.S. & Safety & Reliability standards


Jack & Diane agree with all these claims because we loved the experience this condom provided.  So much so that the first thing we did was google it to find the cheapest place we could buy it. has it for $8.99 and we highly recommend trying this product out.




Condomologist Update: These condoms are made of polyisoprene, which is similar to polyurethane and is non-latex, so they may work well for those with latex allergies. Also, I fear I may have lost my condom testers, now that the first product they’ve reviewed received a top score. Here’s to hoping they’re willing to try out other condoms in the future — and switch mid-sex to a Skyn when necessary.

      Thanks for the reply, though I’d just add that any condom can break and I would never not recommend a particular condom unless I heard repeated stories of that happening. Sometimes condoms just break, but they also break do to user error — not saying that’s what happened with you two. Condoms are less likely to break if there’s less friction, so I always recommend adding water- or silicone-based lube to an already lubricated condom. Also, make sure there’s room at the tip, 1/2 inch or so, by pinching the tip before rolling it down. And then sometimes there’s nothing you can do…but thank you very much for your feedback. The goal of this site is to encourage folks to discuss their experiences, so I greatly appreciate your writing.
