my boyfriend and i have had some problems with condoms. We put it on the right way, roll it down the right way with the roll side out, but about half way it stops rolling. To roll it all the way down to the hair he has to reach into the condom because suddenly the roll is on the inside, I have no idea why, and roll it the other way. ??? Maybe it's the brand, Trojan Very Sensitive. My ex didn't seem to have problems with Trojan-Enz, they rolled just fine.

I've never heard of this problem before, so I suspect it may very well be the condom. Why not skip the Trojan (do a search if you want to know what exactly we thing of this type), and check out the suggestions in Here.

I have experienced the same problem with a partner, too. It might be worth to check out some other brands of condoms, my partner had that prob because the condom we used was very uncomfortable for him (while condoms generally stretch a lot and can rarely be too tight, the brand we used was too uncomfy for him to roll down). We started using some that were slightly larger (just a few mm really) and had no probs from then on.

Why don't you two head to a condom boutique and purchase some new ones to try out? The link that Milke provided will tell you which brands some Scarleteeners like to use.

Wishing you lots of fun finding condoms that work alright.

i'd recommend changing brands to Durex. and please use extra lube (get thee some ASTROGLIDE!). it will make rolling the condom down a LOT easier. it will also make condom breakage less likely. And it feels quite good

we used to have the same problem. the rubber sort of sticks to itself when you're trying to unroll it. it was NOT brand-specific - trojans, durex, lifestyles all did it. so did kimono, once.

the problem was not solved until we got condoms with bigger rings at the base. check out my review of maxx condoms in the safer sex section! they are great, and they never stick.
