Durex Sexcessories Kit

This is a sponsored post. You know what that means! Free stuff for you. You love us, we know.

It’s summer. Hot days and hot nights. And they’re about to get a lot hotter. Our editrix got back from a party in New York City celebrating the launch of two new Durex products designed specifically to get couples synced up in the sack. It’s the holy grail of sexual relationships, made all the more desirable by that ridiculous scene in Fifty Shades of Gray where the main character orgasms at the same time as her partner the very first time she has sex (and they say porn is unrealistic?).

Anyway, as soon as our editrix walked in the door, we did what we always do: jumped all over her luggage looking for swag. This is what we found in her Durex Sexcessories Kit (and how you can get your hands on one of your own):


For years, condoms have been more about practicality than anything else. Condom-makers sweetened the deal with flavors, various pleasure-increasing lubes, colors and other gimmicks (glow-in-the-dark? Did we really need that?), but for the most part, condoms were about keeping things the way they were: child-free and disease-free. Then came benzocaine, the topical anesthetic you find in cough drops, which, when applied to the penis, intercepts sensation and effectively slows a guy down. Initially, benzocaine was utilized to treat men suffering from premature ejaculation, but recent years have seen an increase of available products for anyone looking to modify their performance.

Durex has taken a step up from its original climax-control condom (which also used benzocaine) with its new offering, the Performax Intense. This latex condom has benzocaine on the inside and silky lubricant on its ribbed and dotted exterior for extra stimulation on the outside. The idea is to sync up a couple by slowing the wearer down and speeding up the recipient. Genius.


The Rabbit and vibes like it revolutionized self-pleasure for women by combining vaginal and clitoral stimulation in a single toy. Products like Durex’s new Ring of Bliss recreates that double whammy of pleasure by crowning a cock ring with a vibrating tickler (with a “discreet, tasteful design” that looks a lot like Cthulhu!). The ring slips easily over the condom to the base of the penis. To turn it on, you hold down the on button (you can’t miss it, it’s at the center of Cthulhu) and voila! Vibrations for him and clitoral bliss for her. The battery lasts about 20 minutes, so clearly, this $10.00 baby is a one-time deal. But worth it — so worth it, we might need to look into benzocaine lube to keep from orgasming within the first three minutes. Not exaggerating.


No sexcapade kit would be complete without a lube, so let us introduce the improved formula Durex Play Tingling, a mint-infused, latex-safe silicone lube that creates a bright, tingling sensation wherever it’s rubbed. It can be used during sex or for a refreshing, sexy massage. Perfect for a hot summer day or a steamy summer night.


Because, hello. Who doesn’t need handcuffs?


Go to the Durex Get In-Sync Song Generator app on Facebook, do the exercise, and find out what song helps you and your partner get in-sync in the bedroom.

Tell us in the comments on this blog post what song you and your partner got. If you don’t want to use your real name when you comment, you don’t have to, just make sure you use a real e-mail address (it won’t show up) so we can get hold of you!

On Wednesday, we’ll put the commenters names in one of our editrix’s hats and pull out a winner.

Note! You have to be in the U.S. or its territories to participate, as well as over the age of 18 — or whatever is the right age for you to get sex stuff from complete strangers on the internet. Oh, yes, you will have to provide us with a mailing address. Well, not us. The Durex reps. You just need to get us your e-mail address so we can get you in touch with them. Cool? All right! Go play!

Warnings: Performax Intense condoms are made with latex and contain benzocaine. Do not use if you have allergies to latex or local anesthetics. Ring of Bliss presents a choking hazard, please keep out of the reach of children. Don’t reuse it! Play Tingling lube may reduce sperm motility during use, so if you’re trying to conceive, speak to your doctor before use!
