Hello guys..I've been reading the forum for a while now and need your advice on this! I'm 8.5 x 6.5 and just recently lost my virginity (better late than never!) I don't fit in regulars and in most large condoms, as you probably have guessed, So I tried Magnums XL. They fit well (while a little tight to my taste at the base, where I'm slightly larger) However, about 6 hours after the intercourse, I have rashes and red patches on about the first 2 inches from the base up. It iches, there are cracks in the skin and it kinda swells....not a pretty picture, if you ask me and pretty unconfortable. It heals in a week. My question is could it be a latex allergy? If so, why only at the base, and not on all the penis? Could it be the lubricant? Could it be the the fact that it's tigher at the base? Just to make sure it wasnt latex, We tried with one Lifestyle Large (It was our 2nd buy of condoms...but they are too small) Beside the fact the intercourse wasnt enjoyable because it felt too tight. the only problems was like i had a garrot on the penis, the skin was a little red on the base but it all quickly went away, in matter of hours. So i'm guessing that the pressure at the base + the lubricant is the cause of the problem with magnums XL. My question is, what other condoms are available to me for my size? thank you!
