    LaJolla: I usually buy normal condoms and I'm 6.5" around. I have to work a bit to fit them ; to you is it possible that they break ?

    Do you think I should buy other condoms ?

    At 6.5" girth it's no surprise you have trouble getting a condom onto your penis. The danger is that with all the pushing, twisting and pressure applied when putting it on you will unknowingly tear or puncture it so that it will either leak or tear during use.

    There is also that problem many of us 'girthy' guys have in that we can lose the erection trying to fit into a too-tight condom.

    Try the Magnum or the Magnum XL. You'll be surprised and delighted at the difference.

    nowoonder: I am the same around as you and, yes, I have ruptured my fair share of normal condoms. That's why I go with larger ones only nowadays - keeps away the worries about becoming a father too soon (and all that STD crap). I haven't yet ruptured a large condom.

    BTW: Don't go for the first XXL you find. Take a close look at the true width. They advise 58mm flat width (= 4.5" diameter) as XXL in a lot of European places. Sometimes even 56mm flat.
