The Condom Re-Engineered Part 1
Award winning actor Charlie Sheen talks condoms. Charlie has HIV.
STRENGTH ~ PLEASURE, UNCOMPROMISED
There’s a reason why honeycombs are the shape they are. Nature knows it, dragonflies know it, Fibonacci knew it, and we know it. Hexagons are strong, symmetrical, even, and tessellates perfectly – they’re nature’s go-to shape for strength and lightness.
SENSATION ~ PLEASURE ON POINT
With its structure of 350 interconnected hexagons, HEX™ allows body warmth to be transmitted between partners for a more sensitive and more intimate sexual sensation.
ULTRA-THIN ~ TRUE TO FORM
Perfectly smooth on the outside, textured on the inside; the hexagonal web within flexes and stretches to fit a wide number of shapes securely.
HEX Condoms Under The Microscope

Why Are Condoms Important?
People all over the world engage in sexual activity yet perhaps don’t have the means, motivation, nor passion to have children. For that reason, condoms are like a go-to in order to prevent pregnancy. But there is one other very important reason why condom use is so important.
Wearing a condom during sex radically reduces, if not completely prevents, the spread of HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) as well as STI’s (Sexually Transmitted Infections).
And while many have the attitude: “It’ll never happen to me,” it is a very real reality, with more than one million STI’s acquired every day worldwide, according to the World Health Organization.
To twist the knife even further, the majority of STI’s have no or very mild symptoms, and thus go unrecognized, untreated, yet spread.
The original LELO HEX condom is made up of a hexagon structure that delivers strength, thinness, and sensation. Because of this innovative design, it’s been dubbed one of the most important advances in condom technology.
Why a hexagon? This shape is synonymous of strength, lightness, and tessellate perfection. It’s also a shape that further enforces a natural real-feel as honeycombs appear in the form of a hexagon. A beautiful analogy, wouldn’t you agree?
A HEX condom is made up of 350 interconnected hexagons, and allows for both partners to share and enjoy each other’s body heat in a more sensual and stimulating way.
It’s made from natural latex, is 0.0045mm thin and 54mm in diameter, and is lightly lubricated for added comfort. It’s smooth on the outside, textured on the inside, and has a flexible structure to fit a number of different shapes and sizes.
Verified HEX Condom Reviews
With 95 percent of customers recommending HEX condoms, here are a few verified reviews of this LELO luxury essential.
“Really impressive product. Sleek packaging that doesn’t scream box of condoms. Had to check a few times to see if it was even there! Both my significant other and I really enjoyed it. Really doubt I’ll ever use another brand moving forward.”
“Bought a 36-pack a little over one month ago and I am super satisfied, definitely best condoms I have ever tried in my 9 years of sexually active life. They are super thin and strong, they feel great and have enough lube on them. So far 0 issues. I have recommended them to all of my friends!”
“This is my third order of the HEX condoms and my wife and I think they are the best we have ever tried. They do not compromise on durability or comfort and feel like there is nothing there. We used to be loyal to one of the main long term brands but now only buy HEX.”
The Correct Way to Use a Condom
- When opening the condom packaging, be sure not to tear the condom.
- If the condom has expired, or feels stiff or sticky, don’t use it.
- Make sure the penis is erect before putting it on, and hasn’t had any sexual contact with your partner.
- Keep the condom on throughout the entire act.
- Use a new condom each time you have sex.
- Uncircumsized: Pull the foreskin back before putting on the condom.
- If there isn’t a reservoir tip, pinch the end of the condom, leaving half an inch of space. This is where the semen will be collected once ejaculation takes place. Then, roll down the condom all the way to the base of the penis.
- If you notice a tear in the condom during use, stop and remove the condom. Get a new one, and put it on the erect penis, as instructed.
- After ejaculation and while still erect, remove the penis from your partner, and take the condom off.
- Remove the condom carefully, and be sure not to let any collected semen spill.
- Tie the condom off, wrap it up in tissue or paper towel, and dispose.
