    This might sound odd.... but exactly how tight is a condom suppose to be when worn? I know they have to stay on, but at what point do you really decide "ok, this is uncomfortable" or "ok this just isnt big enough"? Always kinda wondered that.

    GREAT question.. its one ive asked too... with my size

    7.5 long by 5.5,, I find regular condomes to be down right painfull... i have a huge vain that runs on the top and side ofmy shaft and after putting on a regular condome it starts to hurt to much... So i started using Trojan Large.. these fist more than snug,, but were ok

    then Trojan stoped maken them.. so i tempted fate one night and bought magnums..They were a bit bigger than the large but fit perfectly! No pain when i realy got exsited and swelled up...

    recently due to my new piercing,, ive been playing around with the Magnum Twisters,, it has more room for your cockhead and dose crush my PA iinto my piss slit like the mags do..

    magnum and gold coin

    years ago i was laughed out of the hiv alliance clinic in los angeles when i asked about larger condoms. they didn't really come in sizes in those days. one queen told be that i could blow up a condom to the size of my arm so any brand would fit because they stretch. what a jerk he was, and think of how small his dick is if he has never had a condom too tight.

    So..... when you find a condom that fits right for your size, and you have it on, what exactly does it feel like? Is there any "pain" or pinching feeling at all? Im thinking I need the Magnums, I just always thought Magnums were for guys way bigger then me (Im 7.5 x 5.25 on normal day, with a big mushroom head. Never measured on a "great day").

    Yeah if they cause discomfort or are really hard to get on, you might want to try steping up. I have found the magnums fit worlds better than regulars, but still a bit tight and hard to get down, if i ever get laid again ill try the xl's...lol

    I recently made the step up to magnums thanks to PE. Did it over the summer. Was about to have sex and I couldn't get the damn condom to unroll over the head, once i got it there after about halfway I was in pain. Picked up some magnums the next day. They are still tight on the head (6.5-7 girth) but fit the middle of the shaft pretty good (5-5.25) and hold pretty tight on the base (5.75-6)

    I just went with the smallest I could get on without being too big that it would slide off. Really happy with magnums but as soon as I run out I am going to try the twisters. Wide head makes all condoms tight

    In porn films I could see the actors were fucking inside of their condoms. The condom stayed inside the butt and the cock slid in and out. This told me, if I could move inside the condom, it was big enough.

    I used to wear regulars not knowing my girth was on the big side, and it used to take time just to pull the condom on, it would get stuck less than halfway down. So I tried magnums, and it fit a little better. But then even the magnums were tight and left a painful ring ident at the base of my cock. So I tried the XL's and now those are my condom of choice. They're designed for someone at least 5.5" around. They fit me pretty well, maybe slightly too tight at times when I'm really aroused, but they rarely leave the same ring ident as the magnums and CERTAINLY not the same pain the regulars never failed to deliver. I'm about 6" around (5.7"-9"ish on a bad day and they still fit nicely even then).

    Regular Magnums to me aren't nearly as big as the box and advertising make it seem, you need only be at least 4.7" to wear them.

    Regular condoms are smaller in comparison and you need only be 4.3" around to wear them.

    Many more men than would know could probably wear a regular magnum (and be more comfortable) if they weren't intimidated by the box. The average girth is around 4.84", which is big enough for a magnum. I would imagine most guys who wear regulars notice them being kinda tight.

    Condom manufacturers wouldn't make condoms in any extreme of size because they wouldn't make any money. They mostly go from low average to high average, which encompasses well over 90% of the population of men in the world. Thus a profit is guaranteed for most of their products.

    I've had more than one adventure spoiled by too-tight condoms. Sheiks were the only brand that seemed to fit properly without strangling the enjoyment. No pinching or indentation on the base.

    Why don't you try Magnums or Magnum XL's?

    i get this ALL the time as well...i wind up with a purple/red ring around my cock
    for like 20 minutes...that and i get "kinda" hard...and when i get closer
    to fully erectERECT i can feel the ring at the bottom more and more.
    it actually does "hurt" like pinching.
    MAN this site rocks...i am not even BIG and this stuff
    is really helpful. : )

    i will try magnums now that i know they aren't 8 inches in circumference.
    i was afraid they would fall off! LOL.

    Condomania online has a line that is custom fit using a chart provided. The very largest size works for me but would accomodate someone quite a bit larger as well, I would say up to 8" in circumference without discomfort. Lengths of 9" to 10" are comfortably covered, meaning that even foot long poles are well sheathed.

    Bubba, sir, I'm not convinced these will really fit you. I'd be happy to come over and give you a proper personal fitting.
