hi there,
I have a trouble with finding a fitting condom
The length of my penis a around 15,3 cm and the girth (like thickness)is when in full erection around 15,5 cm . I measured the girth with measuring tape and then around the penis and then it said 15,45 cm when in full erection. So i hope this is measured in correct way

1. Is this normal?
2. For which condom size should i search? i tried 52 cm of durex(which i couldnt get around it). same for 56 cm.

thank you in advance

Hi Afrojunk,

There's no normal or abnormal when it comes to penis size. That is, penises come in all different sizes. No two penises will look exactly alike, and that's okay.

Here's some more information on penis size: Shown Actual Size: A Penis Shape & Size Lowdown

Since every brand and style of condom fits differently, it's really not possible to recommend one that is guaranteed to work for you. I imagine it's frustrating, but I do think your best bet is to keep trying different brands. If Durex is the only brand you've tried, the first place to start would be to try another.

Remember too that condoms are supposed to fit snugly.

Others may have some specific recommendations, but that's at least a place for you to start.
