I'm pretty big and currently use trojan magnums, but you can drop a brick on it and I wouldn't feel it, if any other larger people could give me some imput i'd appreciate it, thanx!

hey...

im not gay or anything but how big are you down there....ive found condoms rather tight and if your anything like me then i can use this advice too.

{Note from Miz Scarlet: Do recall that many of us here aren't heterosexual, and that this sort of gay-disclaimer is more than a little offensive. No one cares what your orientation is here, so there is no need to defend it.}

lmfao

Ok, now thats what I call flattering.
I wish I was gargantuan enough that people automatically associated me with magnum sized condoms!

I've just been using Trojan Magnums, myself. They seem about as thick as most normal condoms - just with a bit of extra elbow room, so to speak.

All I can say is, look around and try a few styles. Odds are you'll find one that works for you. Think I went through 8-10 different types.

I take it the "brick" thing means they're pretty thick. Well there are medium sized ultra thin condoms, so why not large ultra thin condoms?

In truth, nearly ALL standard sized condoms will accomodate just about anyone. There are a couple brands which are a *tad* bit smaller, and a couple which are a *tad* bit larger, but let me demonstrate something while I'm writing this as best I can.

::drumroll please::

Okay, I have a huge basket full of condoms and lube I keep on my desk. I'm going to open one I know to be a pretty darn standard size, a Lifestyles thin.

(My husband -- and trusty sidekick -- is standing here observing this for verification purposes and general assistance)

I have just rolled the condom over my fist and down to my wrist. Then I put my other hand in, and then had both hands inside the condom.

My husband then rolled the condom further down, over both my hands, and down to about midway on my forearms.

I can move inside it without breaking the condom or hurting my circulation easily. When we tried to pull it to my elbows, it them tore.

The moral of the story is...
Rest assured that if -- like both my hands and half of both my forearms -- your penis is about twelve inches long and nine inches around, you'll fit into most comdoms just fine.

And if -- quite frankly -- your penis is bigger than that, you have a phone call to make to the Guiness Book of World Records, since the largest penis ever documented on record was just over 6 inches around, and 13 inches long.

Oh, god, I LOVE that picture, Miz Scarlet. That is, quite frankly, hilarious.

And I recommend that trick, ladies, for any guy who says he's too big for a condom to try and get out of using one.

Its not really a question of "I can't get it on" - although with some fits that can be tricky.
Its comfort, too. I've tried condoms on that left Little ThisGuy looking like he was about to burst a vein. Usually they'd make me as sore after 10-20 minutes, as an erection does after several hours.

I'm quite comfortable in a magnum. And no, its not psychological - you can see a big difference.

Is it possible its the type of latex they're using, and not the size?

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.
