    Alright here's the delimma. my bf and I have recently been experimenting with different styles and condom brands due to the fact "regular/average" sized is too tight on him making it uncomfortable and "magnum/large" aren't quite fitting enough for me. (He fills it fine but to me it doesn't feel fitting. Such as Im very aware of the condom during sex, just not as comfortable.) Does anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions on brands or styles to try? WE NEED A REGNUM! (I should patent that shit...just a thought)
    thanks WC1989

    Condoms aren't really made for men who are thicker than average, and if he's very much thicker then he probably won't get any joy at all. There are two possible options and one is the female condom which is not size-dependent, and the other is an alternative and more reliable method of birth control.

    I have to say, Jock straps, athletic cups - these things are frequently created without a "small" size, because guys won't buy a "small" package container. Silly people. Anyway, Smalls become "medium," medium is "large," and large is "X-large."

    I have no idea if condoms are like this, but I'm pretty sure I have a fairly gosh-durn normal sized penis, and "regular" sized condoms are tight enough that the usually cause fairly noticeable discomfort within a few minutes, enough that I will voluntarily stop having sex, and when removed, generally reveal an abused looking erection with a nasty ringed bruise at the base. Perhaps "regular" condoms are really made for small guys,and large condoms are made to fit regular guys?

    Think about it, if Regular is the smallest size out there, and it was made to fit average guys, what would small guys wear? Too big condoms?

    magnum thin are slightly snugger then the magnum L and XL, but the XL is slightly snugger then the magnum L at lest that is how is feels to me.

    The reason is the magnum L are 2.5" top and mid and taper at the base to 2"


    XL starts tapering at 1.5" down the condom from 2.7" top to 2.15" mid and 2" at the base


    In reality the magnum L may work better for guys with larger girth.

    I've tried tons of condom brands. One of the deal killers for me is too tight girth. Lifestyle condoms are the absolute worst for me. Trojan condoms for girth are all around better if you are just grabbing something at your local drug store. Better yet are the durex polyurethane ones. You can usually find those are regular shops, they are quite wide, and you can hardly feel them. Those are a good inbetween girth size between regular condoms and magnum types. My personal favorites are Paradise condoms. They just seem be higher quality latex and you get great feeling through them....and they smell nice. They don't seem too tight to me at least but I think a lot of that is just the softness of the latex. They have some really nice quality flavored condoms as well if you enjoy giving BJs and want to mix things up.

    I had the same problem. I'm about 7.5" long and about a 7" around. I'm a grower, not a shower. Because of that, in the school locker room, I was teased and lead to believe I had a little dick. Back then, aids had just appeared and was still considered a gay man's disease. There wasn't the wide choice of condoms there is today. Trojan was the only brand widely available, so I bought them. They tend to run a bit small, so they are tight on the average joe. This was actually my first clue I had something special, as I was worried they'd be big on me. After a bit of research, I discovered that only 1.5% of men were bigger than me. I guess they all get jobs in porn, as you rarely see an average guy in videos. I had saw "Magnum" advertized in men's magazines, so I went to a pharmacy, as that was the only place you could get any sort of a selection. I found the magnums to be too loose. After loosing one inside a lover, I stopped using them. Thankfully, I soon discovered that Lifestyles brand was more comfortable for the bigger guy that isn't monster huge. At my age, I don't use condoms much anymore. Most women I would have sex with no longer have a pregnancy risk and I know they are disease free. If I feel I need a condom for an occasion, I reach for Lifestyles Skyn. They come in regular and large. You may wish to experiment with both. I find either to be comfortable. Get a 3 pack of each to see if you have a preference.

    Magnums/xl's are for 5.5" for L -6" XL's + girth .


    You have some incorrect info saying the requirement is 7" girth+

    In order to take a swim in Magnums one would have to be in the 4" to 4.5" girth range.
    Below 5"girth there is a very high risk of losing it inside someone.

    I forgot to mention that when I lost it inside her it had somehow torn. We were having an impromptu session on the kitchen floor. It was so hot, I had attributed the increase in sensations to her cuming like crazy, until it was over and it wasn't on me when I pulled out. I attributed the tear to it feeling loose on me, but that may have just been because I had previously been used to condoms that are way too tight.

    The only condoms that have ever felt good on me and inside were lambskins. They are fine as birth control, but they do not prevent std's. Not an option for me anymore, as I only use them if I am unsure of disease. I'm older now and most women I'd have sex with are beyond childbearing by choice or age.
