So, one size fits all...right!? What size condom should i buy?
No two penises are the same; they come in all sorts of different shapes and sizes. Luckily so do condom sizes – there are condoms for larger penises and condoms for smaller penises. It is important to find one that fits you perfectly, just as you would a pair of shoes.
Finding your perfect condom size leads to safer and more pleasurable sex for both of you. There really is a condom out there for everyone; you just have to find it.
According to the NHS, for adults, the average penis size is about 14-16cm (5.5-6.3 inches) when erect. The average girth for an erect penis is 12-13cm (4.7-5.1 inches). The majority of Durex condoms are designed to accommodate all sizes of penis and will stretch to fit different lengths, leaving a little extra length at the tip to allow room to ejaculate. However there are certain condoms that are best for particulalry large or small penises.
Condom too loose?
If you feel that your condom always slips off or feels baggy, perhaps you should have a look at a narrower option such as the Durex Ultra Thin Feel, which has a nominal width of 52mm, as opposed to 56mm - the width of many Durex condoms. Durex Ultra Thin Feel condoms are super fine with Sensi-Fit™ which provides a sleeker fit for even greater feeling, and on average are 20% thinner than the standard latex condoms, helping to enhance sensitivity and arousal, and ultimately helping the condom to feel more snug.
Condom too tight?
Perhaps you feel that every condom you try always feels too tight. If this is the case you should try the Durex Real Feel, which is made from a stretchy non-latex material, and has a nominal width of 56mm. Or you could try a Durex Comfort XL. These are extra large condoms that are comfortable and can better accommodate those of you who need it. It sounds obvious, but it is really important to use a condom that is not too small, because if you do and it is too short, the risk of STI transmission increases.
You also need to consider the thickness of condoms and the choices you have. If you have a thinner penis maybe you should try Durex Extra Safe condoms which are slightly thicker and could add a little extra help in the girth department, and extra peace of mind too. Vice Versa, if you have a thicker penis why not try a thinner condom like the Durex Thin Feel. Despite being thinner, they still provide the same high level of reassurance and protection, and they're shaped to be easier to put on and provide a sleek fit and feeling during sex - an all round winner.
It really is up to you to find your perfect condom size rather than just buying the first packet you see. According to Mens Health magazine, condoms are like coffee. You don't just walk into a Starbuck's and say, "Give me a coffee." They are right . The most important thing when it comes to what size condom is right for you is to be honest. Everyone knows it can be hard to open up, especially when it comes to genuine penis size. It’s so important to experience lots of different condoms and lubricants and find the one that feels good to you – it will benefit both you and your partner and everyone will be happy.
