Condom Testing Reveals Best Brands

Tue Jan 4, 6:02 PM ET
By Maggie Fox, Health and Science Correspondent

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The consumers group best known for rating cars and washing machines has turned its testing prowess to condoms to find out which ones measure up best and how other birth control methods compare.

The nonprofit Consumers Union says in a new guide to contraception that the seven top U.S. types of condom they studied did not burst despite vigorous testing, and all models met international standards.

[Shamalama says: Vigorous testing?!?! How do I apply for THAT job?]

But results showed that the top brand, able to take the most punishment, was the Durex Extra Sensitive Lubricated Latex, according to the report.

A melon-colored model distributed by Planned Parenthood performed the worst, bursting during a test in which the latex condoms were filled with air.

[Shamalama says: Well that's just great. The ones that they give your kids in school actually performed the worst. Geez.]

Since the testing involves blowing up the "test piece" to 3' long and 1' wide, I don't think I need worry about exceeding the test conditions if I use one. tongue.gif
