quote:Sarcasm aside, nearly ANY condom will allow for any length humanly possible. It's usually the ring-size at the base that's an issue for a few men.
However, in general, that's usually only the case with poorer quality condoms. As I've said before, in my experience, Trojans are the worst condoms on the market. Same goes double for no-name-brand condoms you find in gas stations or vending machines. Well-made condoms -- so long as they aren't cut *small* (japanese brands tend to be cut on the smaller side) will fit just fine.
And for the record, the width measurement of a Trojan Magnum is 55mm, a Trojan regular condom is 51mm wide. However, other "regular" cut brands I use are cut much wider than the Trojan regulars, even though they aren't sold as "larger" condoms, such as Durex High Sensation (53mm), Kimono (54mm), Crown (54mm) and the LifeStyles plain old lubricated (54mm).
Kudos to Trojan for yet another great marketing scam, especially since better brands "larger" condoms (like Maxx, measuring in at a generous 58mm) really ARE larger, and not only on a bell curve with their other styles, if you follow me.
So the first strategy to try is getting a brand other than Trojans. Many people report that Trojans seem to break more often than other brands, so you'll be doing yourself a favour in that respect too .
If that isn't enough to solve the problem, then you can try a brand like Maxx.

My issue is ring size. According to your post the Magnum was the largest measured, I've tried durex, and lifestyle condoms, all of which have given me ring issues. The magnum has also given me ring issues. Length isn't an issue, it's just the ring size.
You stated "Maxx" is larger then all the others in terms of ring size, where can this be purchased?
Trojan - 51mm - Too tight Trojan magnum - 55mm too tight Durex High Sensation - 53mm (tried original, too tight...regardless, it's smaller than a magnum, which was too tight) Kimono -- never tried, but still smaller than the magnum, same for Crown LifeStyles Original - 54mm, tried, too tight
I've tried the biggest of all the ones listed with measurements and it was too tight in ring. You said Maxx is even bigger, but where can I buy it

Kimono makes the Maxx condoms. They are sold in regular drug stores (and I can even find them at my local supermarket) in the United States. Yes, this includes my really backwater hometown, so don't think 'cause i'm in an urban center right now that I can find "special" condoms.
