Alright, i'm trying to decide what type of condoms to get, and I thought you guys might be able to help if I gave some info. Soo... yeah, i'm looking for like, latex condoms that would fit well on a 7 1/2 inch penis, and arent like, colored or anything, and have good sensitivity but also and very safe. i know thats pretty general, but im mainly concerned about it not being to tight or loose, cause i used some regular trojans and they were really tight and hurt like a bitch.

yes, Trojans tend to be a little narrow. Durex and Beyond Seven condoms tend to be wider. Lifestyles is wider than Trojan, but very slightly narrower than Durex. Most brands of condoms can roll down 8 inches, so legnth probably won't be a problem.

Wearing some water-based lube also helps the condom feel more comfy. Just add a drop inside the condom.

Thinner or narrower?

Thin usually refers to the condom material/latex itself. Narrow refers to the width or girth of the condom and the condom ring.

Beyond Sevens are actually a condom with a narrower, rather than a larger, base.

Know though that the length of a penis has little to no bearing on a condom fit, because I can fit my whole arm in most condoms when it comes to length.

Durex brands are effective, ahve many styles, and have a ring size whichh should be comfortable and secure for most men.
