I'd like to know how I am supposed to know which condom size is right for my boyfriend? Never had an issue with sizes before... my previous boyfriend and I used standard size and it was ok. But my current boyfriend has a longer/thicker penis and so he didn't think regular sized condoms would fit him (he's never been with anyone before therefore he has no previous experience with condoms).

So (1),he put a standard sized condom on, and said it didn't feel tight in an uncomfortable way, however it was a bit hard for me to roll it down and it wouldn't stay on place when I tried to masturbate him with the condom on - it rolled back up quite easily. Which (I guess) means it's a bit small, even if he doesn't feel too uncomfortable. Don't want it to roll upwards while we're having intercourse!

So (2), we're gonna get a box of XXL sized condoms, but in case they're too "big", I don't want them to fall off while we're having intercourse, either! [Roll Eyes]

My question is, what is a too-big condom (and a too-small one, for that matter) supposed to look/feel like? Cos if these XXL ones are too big for him, then we'll just search for something in between from a different brand, (since my friends have told me different brands have slight different sizing).

Any help greatly appreciated! [Cool]
