VISTA, Calif. — Paradise Marketing has released the results of a recent study conducted to determine the thinnest condom varieties on the market.

Measuring the width of more than 10 latex condoms, representatives of the distributor have concluded that the Kimono family of condoms, including Kimono MicroThin and Kimono MicroThin Large, remain the thinnest family of latex condoms in their respective categories.

Paradise Marketing initiated the study following increased inquiry regarding which condom brands could be considered the most sensitive. Knowing how many manufacturers create “thin” versions of their top-selling brands, Paradise Marketing President Dennis Paradise says he decided to have each one measured in order to best inform his customers.

“As a main supplier of condoms, our customers often ask us which are the most sensitive condoms,” Paradise said. “All condom producers claim to have thin condoms, so we wanted to compare all of the options currently available to American consumers.”

The study involved product samples from brands available in the U.S. marketplace as of June 2013, and included a representative sample of condom styles from the most prominent U.S. condom manufacturers, including Trojan, Durex, Lifestyles and One.

Testing was conducted at a certified FDA-approved laboratory in Japan, and each sample was measured for physical dimensions according to the FDA recognized standard, ISO 4074:2002.

The tests revealed that Kimono Thin, Kimono MicroThin, Kimono MicroThin Plus Aqua Lube, Kimono MicroThin Large, and Kimono MicroThin Ribbed + Sensi-Dots are the thinnest condom varieties of all brands included in the study.

“We are pleased that test results confirm that Kimono brands are the thinnest in their respective categories,” said David Mayer, CEO of Kimono parent company Mayer Labs. “Kimono condoms were the original thin latex condom 28 years ago. Over the years we have continued to improve and develop even thinner latex condoms, such as our MicroThin family. Consumers and health experts agree that users can expect a better sexual experience when using ultra-thin condoms like Kimono than when using other brands.”

In January 2015, Paradise Marketing began shipping the Kimono MicroThin Sheer Variety Pack, a new SKU that features a collection of all the Kimono MicroThin condoms in a single convenient package to give consumers a variety of experiences and sensations.
