    Ok so I finally lost my virginity to my gf and after doing so I began to wonder if I needed a dif sixe condom.
    the reason for this is because I've always had some troubles putting them on and that night I did too and I ripped one trying to put it on. And one fell off during sex (luckly I didn't ejaculate and she's had her period)..I mean I can get it on its tight but it fits....and. don't think im that big either.....sooo
    I was wondering of how to tell if I really need a dif size...and I used crown that night and have also tried trojan his and her pleasure but still same effect...
    Any help is appreciated

    You may think you're not that big but in condom world, you may be bigger then you think.
    Are you extremely thick?
    If the condom is too tight and more importantly if you're breaking them, you may end up having to go for the XL sizes.

    Well, let me guess, do you try to put it on by stretching it over your cock? Or do you put it on the tip and gently roll it down?

    I put it on the tip and rolled it down and it was tough to roll down so I used a litle force and it tore a litle.

    Try a Magnum. I HATED condoms until I tried Magnums. They're still pretty tight, but I'm thinking they're suppose to be bit tight:p....lol

    If you're putting it on properly then you're most likely just getting the wrong size. Or maybe the brand of condom you're using isn't as good as others.

    I suggest getting a 2 pack of magnums and trying those out to see if they are a bit more comfortable for you.

    If you can slide it off with any "ease", then it's too big. You should have to PULL to get it off....or roll it back up, of course.

    Please don't take this offensively; as I'm just trying to cover all the bases. Are you sure that you're putting the correct side outwards/inwards? There are 2 possible ways to put on a condom. When you put it on the end of your penis (like a little hat), you should be able to look down on it and see the ring/ridge around the outside. You should be able to see the "O". Then you let 'er down.

    If you're doing this right, then you may need bigger ones. I know I did. I didn't really even realize condoms weren't supposed to be that uncomfortable until I got the regular Magnums by Trojan. There are 2 levels of Magnums: Magnums and Magnum XL's. If you want to try a bit larger ones, get the Magnums. They are kind of hard to find where I live (also in Indiana), so I ended up having to buy them off condomsdepot dot com.

    Also, how old are the one's you're using? They can become brittle and the latex tends to tear if they are old or exposed to significant heat/cold.

    Many Trojans are generally a 52 mm, I know the H/H Pleasure is.

    I have always had trouble getting them on but I found that a 54-56 mm width is best for me and may be for you as well.

    Try looking into the Lifetsyle Ultra sensitive... they have a flared head for extra room, and they feel like you have nothing on.

    Magnums are a 58mm, which is pretty large, so you need to be careful here for your g/f sake. The XLs are ridiculous 60 or 62 can't rem which, and only about 1% of guys can wear them from what I recall.

    Before I educated myself about condoms, I thought I needed a Magnum, and when I used one it stayed on, but I knew it was too big for me.

    You gotta put your ego aside and make sure you get the right condom. As I said, a standard nominal width is a 52, which fits most guys.

    You could be a tweener like me and need ones between a 53-57...

    Do the ole' TP roll test ! If your erect unit won't fit in a toilet paper roll tube then you might just be needing to go up a size.

    Lessons learned the hard way:

    Don't twist the tube to try and get your dick in there.
    You'll be sorry.

    I did think I wasn't putting the condom on right at first before we had sex so I asked some friends about how to do it and I was putting em on right.....and I did do the toilet paper test and it didn't go in fully erect ...

    Lmao...... my poor roll..(i named her Charmaine) she'll never be the same after I was finished with her.. didn't even buy her dinner ! lol..

    seriously though, its a legit way to get a guage on your size.
    actually I believe This test was introduced by Trojan.
    if you fit in halfway OK, I'd work on your techniques.
    super snug, or no way... consider going up.

    hmmm....TP test, eh?

    i just tried, and decided due to the humongous size of my personal poking rod to swap to a Kitchen Roll.
    The result has been disastrous.
    a little bit too much excitement? perhaps....
    In aid of realism, i wet the tube before hand with some pjur lube. The tube, soaked and saturated unfortunately tore at first entry. *shakes head*
    she may have been a friend of Charmaine's


    sorry...a bit hyperactive this morning
