    I'm not sure if this issue is already addressed on this forum, I know there are a lot of threads on condoms, but, after hearing and reading faulty stuff about "a condom being too small and breaking", I feel that I need to bring some condom awareness to the people.

    A condom does not break because it is too small. In fact it is the opposite. When your condom is not fitting thight, some folds may come into it during sex. These folds are what makes a condom tear. I tried finding the article (it was from BBC) about it. I only found this somewhat related article about condoms in India.

    If you think about it, you can fill a condom whit about two litres of water (guestimated), you can throw it up and catch it, without breaking. Condoms are though! So if you are wearing magnums and can't figure out why they break regularly, you probably have to go down a size.

    Ah yes, for the same reason as the friction in the folds of a condom cause it to break. You should never use two condoms over eachother. Using two condoms is less safe then using one.

    Hmmm... Did the article say what brands they were? Are they the same brands used in other countries? Could it be that the condoms were manufactured wrong?

    I read a study that found the exact opposite to be true. Hold on, let me see if I can find it.

    Here it is:

    All condoms that are manufactured (legally) are tested and and carry the CE quality mark. If one condom in five fails, they will certainly not get this mark. Or they would at least not mention tearing in the article as one of the main causes in the 20% failure rate if it were not significantly higher than with more size adjusted condoms.

    That article makes no distinction of how much of the 20% is caused by slippage, which would indicate that the condom was too large to remain on the penis during sex.

    What? I read them. The circumference that they're referring to means "girthier."

    You're using the situation of penises that are too small for standard size condoms and extrapolating that it means something about penises that are too large for standard size condoms. It's entirely possible that both circumstances would result in increased condom breakage. The larger the cock, the more strain on the condom, whereas smaller cocks may cause a folding of the latex material over itself which would increase tearing the same way that wearing two condoms over each other would.

    I didn't see this post first, but yes, if you are larger, of course a larger condom is better. That's what it's made for.
    The other article doesn't say a lot (and certainly doesn't say girthier), I think we can disregard that.

    But the point I'm trying to make is: if you break a lot of condoms, you don't necessarily have to go up one size, you might have to go down. Because as you can see in the article about india: It's worse to have a condom that is too large as opposed to a condom that is too small (as the numbers in this article prove). Except of course, a condom that is too small doenst feel nice

    Ok, I think you got the point :)

    Just like standard penisses are too small for large condoms. I wanted too make people aware of this, I read some comments, and heard something a girlfriend told me. They were all like "what am I doing wrong, I have XXL condoms and they still break"

    As the numbers in your article prove, a condom that is too large, fails more often than a condom that is too small.

    By "fitted" condoms, the article was referring to condoms that are larger for larger penises, and smaller condoms for smaller penis, rather than "standard" by which it means the regular size. The study found that larger cocks had less breakage with fitted condoms. No, the article didn't use the word "girthier" that was me paraphrasing the results of the study, since a larger circumference is referred to as "girthier" here on LPSG and people reading my post would understand it.

    I misunderstood you and I thought you meant that guys who are larger than average shouldn't wear larger than average condoms, when the studies show that those guys should be wearing larger than average condoms. They also show that smaller than average guys should be wearing smaller than average condoms.

    In other words, wear the ones that fit!

    You read between the lines too often. But I'm glad you finally understood.

    btw: it doesnt say "larger circumference" it says "circumference"

    Well, you did say, and in bold, too

    And that's not true for guys who have big cocks!


    btw: fitted means that it's fitted for the size of the penis. See how that study was cited by the other study?

    Well of course, to get the point across.
    If you read my explanation after the bold stuff, you will see why I put it in bold, and what I mean. I would never say that a smaller condom is better than a fitted one. That would be just silly. One would think this is obvious...
    But it seems you "understood" it that way.

    This. The likelihood of a condom breaking is increased by both wearing a condom that's too big, AND one that's too small.

    Is the OP really suggesting that a 9" x 7" guy who breaks condoms should go DOWN a size?

    I made my last post before I read the whole thread (never a sensible thing to do). I'm glad you weren't really saying that 'a condom doesn't break because it is too small'. I can understand your desire to catch people's attention, however I don't think it was very responsible to post such incorrect information. Condoms DO break if they are too small. They also break if they are too big.

    I re-read the entire OP and nowhere do you make the distinction that you meant that men who have very large penises should not wear smaller condoms and that you're only talking about men whose penises are smaller than average. I did not read between the lines. I understood the same thing subgirrl did because that's what you wrote.
