Sensation Original was introduced in 2004. Lubricated. Like all male latex condoms, Sensation condoms are sheaths, or coverings, that fit over a man’s erect penis. They work by forming a barrier that keeps sperm out of the vagina, preventing the transmission of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV/AIDS. They also prevent pregnancy, making male condoms (along with female condoms) the only dual form of protection against STIs and pregnancy.
