Your first experience with condoms may have been stretching one over a banana in the ninth grade. Maybe you remember fumbling with one before your first time in the backseat of a car. Along the way, most of us learned that condoms can be used for safer sex and to prevent unwanted pregnancy, but when was the last time you stopped to wonder if you are using the right size condom?
Had Goldilocks been a woman living inshe would have had a field day with condoms. From snug, to standard, to magnum, one size certainly does not fit all. Having an imperfect fit can result in slippage or breaks that can jeopardize the whole point of using protection.

In fact, the smaller your penis, the more complicated it can be to find a condom that fits correctly. Many guys are too bashful to shop around, so they buy the first condom brand they recognize at a drug store, and end up having an uncomfortable—or worse, unsafe—sexual experience. A Google search shows that condom slippage is certainly a popular item.
Perhaps this is due to the lack of clear sizing on packaging…or awareness that condoms are indeed available in a wide range of sized. Condoms are measured in nominal width ranging from 49mm, for smaller condoms, up to 60mm for the larger sized. You will then be able to reference the width when shopping around for condoms. We recommend trying a variety of different condoms from different condom brands as condoms not only vary in width, but also length and shape which can also find a difference.
