Since the late 1990s, condom manufacturers have tinkered with improving the de facto condom. The usual varieties existed—standard, ribbed, large, and desensitizing condoms. Within the last decade, condom innovations have flooded retail outlets. Heat activated condoms, flavored condoms, thin and microthin condoms, condoms for the very extra large, etc., have become available for consumers to buy over-the-counter. The old adage that “condoms don’t provide feeling” is untrue.
Grab a ruler and measure the length of your penis. Most condom manufacturers will refer to length size to report on the usability of certain condoms. Below is a chart of size categories:
|Category||Number of Inches (or CM)|
|Small (or “Extra Small”)||Less than 6 inches (15.24 cm)|
|Average**||6 inches (15.24 cm) to 7 inches (17.78 cm)|
|Large||More than 7 inches (17.78 cm)|
Girth (or circumference) size also affects your ability to fit into certain condoms. Unfortunately the majority of condom manufacturers don’t report the maximum circumference size that their condoms can fit. You will need to experiment. To measure your girth size, follow either of the two methods below:
If you suspect that your girth size is large, then you should try using large and extra large condoms. LuckyBloke.com describes an easy method for determining the right condom based on girth size. Grab a toilet paper roll and place it over your erect penis. If you have extra room, you should buy small condoms. If you have just enough room, then purchase standard-fit condoms. If it feels too tight, then large condoms are your perfect fit.
