"Unforgettable Nights"
1 min 43s
1 Jul 2019
This campaign for Durex takes a radically different approach to the usual 'condoms can be sexy' trope that's been around for a number of years now.

Durex
"Ladies, Let's Lube"
30s
22 Jan 2019
Framing the use of lube as a tool of female liberation is a canny move in this ad for Durex.

Durex confront the depressing reality that most women are settling for bad sex in this ad for a spark-creating snake oil.

Durex introduce us to Kate in this ad - she's playful, romantic, charming... and infected with gonorrhea.

Durex
"Earth-Shattering"
30s
31 Jan 2017
As a brand name, Durex spent a lot of its history caught up rather unfairly in the inherently comic approach to sex taken by the British.

Durex
"Planning Ahead"
20s
8 Aug 2016
This 20" collaboration with the Family Planning Association is evidently cut from a different cloth than Durex's recent advertising.

Durex
"Closer"
20s
4 Apr 2016
This 20-second spot for Durex uses a neat idea to convey the, er, unobtrusiveness of its 'Invisible' condom brand.

Durex
"Hero for the Night"
55s
16 Mar 2016
Durex embrace heroism - safely - in this entertainingly epic ad for their 'pleasure ring'.

Durex

Durex
"When It's On, It's On"
2 mins 20s
28 Oct 2015
For Durex to sell condoms, the target audience needs to feel comfortable using them.

Durex
"Destination Paradise"
30s
17 Aug 2015
This admirably restrained spot for Durex Play is more suggestive than explicit; showing a loved-up couple kissing in a variety of exotic locations as they're transported to paradise.

Durex
"Happy Tuesday"
20s
11 Jul 2015
Presumably Tuesday was chosen because of its nondescript character but the idea that sex is only for the weekends is a bit, you know, Victorian.

Durex
"Connect"
4 mins 32s
23 Mar 2015
It's a bit long -- ooer, missus - but this online piece for Durex is still very nicely done.

Durex
"Delivery"
50s
10 Dec 2014
Oh dear... this poor delivery guy sees sex happening all around him but just isn't getting any himself in this steamy ad for Durex.

Durex
"Real Feel"
30s
29 Apr 2014
This ad shifts from sketchy animation to real people in order to demonstrate how Durex Real Feels is like skin on skin.

Durex
"Sparks Fly"
30s
28 Oct 2013
Quite a clever way of suggesting the role the product purports to play in enhancing sex.

Durex
"Great Sex"
30s
5 Aug 2013
Finally - no tongue-in-cheek humour, no sanctimonious safety message, no general titillation - just an unapologetic acknowledgement that sex is a powerful thing.

Durex
"Decks"
30s
6 Feb 2012
A pair of record decks (look 'em up on Wikipedia, kids) are both playing Marvin Gaye's Let's get It On but one is playing too slow and the other is playing it too quickly.

Durex
"Sensations"
30s
2 Dec 2010
This is proving to be a shrewd move by a brand whose role in the sexual act used to be decidedly unsexy.

Durex
"Silhouette"
30s
24 Nov 2010
A couple take advantage of the advertised product's versatility to enhance their sex in this plain-speaking ad.

Durex
"Feel More"
40s
1 Sep 2010
Ads for Durex have occasionally veered towards the tacky so it's good to see them concentrating on sensuality instead.

Durex
"Feel Like Never Before"
30s
22 Apr 2010
When it first came on, we wondered if this was a sly film for Keep Britain Tidy.

Durex
"Dating The Enemy Sponsorship"

8 Jun 2009


Durex
"Get It On"
30s
16 Jan 2009
