    Just a quick question for you guys in the 7x5.25-5.5 range. Just broke up with a gf, so I'm back into the condom market after a year or so of condom-free sex (I already miss the days!). Before we got tested together, which was only maybe 4 times total, I used regular condoms, Lifestyles. They did the trick, but I had the hardest time getting them over my head and afterwards had an even harder time getting them to roll off (forget just pulling them off), to the point that it was pretty uncomfortable and marginally painful.

    Does anyone in my size range use Magnums? I know my cock isn't that big, but I feel like there has to be a better option than forcing a normal size one over my head and then having to struggle to get it off afterwards. For size references, I do have a big head: about 5.5 or a little over, while my shaft is 5.25 and the base goes back up to 5.5.

    Any help is appreciated, before I go buy a few packs to try them out.

    I'm around the same size you are and I can wear magnums just fine.

    You might try Skyn or Avanti - they're non-latex and have a "baggier" fit at the head.

    You should definitely try Magnums. There's no reason not to at least try them, right? Or try They Fit condoms and condomania.com.

    I've used Magnums before and dont have a problem with them. The Magnum XL's are too big though for me. I can say that the Lifestyle condoms tend to be a bit snug which is why I use Trojans. They seem to be the best fit I have found while still offering different types, unlike the Magnums (But you can get them in twisted now)

    Thanks for the input. I guess it's a pride thing - I don't want to put a Magnum on and have it be too big! haha. Not quite that, but you understand.

    Most every company now makes and XL condom. If Magnum is too big try another. Check one of the online condom places, I use condomdepot or buycondom which have huge selections. Most guys over 5" girth will find sex feels better when condom isn't cutting off your circulation.

    Thanks for the suggestions Mike. I'll check out those sites.

    I agree, it's important to be comfortable!

    I was actually in the exact same situation about two months ago when my girlfriend and i broke up.
    I'm about 7 X 5.25, and from the past times i had used (mostly Trojan) condoms they always bunched up my head and left an indent around my base. They weren't comfortable.
    So I was really glad when I finally bought magnums and they fit great.

    Plus i've noticed the girl gets a little more excited when you pull out a gold wrapper....

    Just don't buy your condoms in Asia. lol I just got back from Singapore and I had a terrible time trying to put on condoms I bought there.

    We're about the same size, and I just gave the Kimono Large a try, and they were a good fit. Snug, but not too much, and a bit easier to get over the head than most condoms I've tried.

    I'm a little larger girth wise, 6.5 , and the best I've found are the Durex XXL. If they're too big for you, then try the XL. But they are so comfortable along the shaft. My dick packs into them nicely, without the "crammed-in & cutting off circulation feeling" that I get from the Magnum XL condoms. You still have to stretch it a bit to encompass the mushroom head most of us have, but the shaft is amazing comfort. Never going to try anything else.

    just tried magnums myself just to see what all the hype is about, they seem barely bigger than regular condoms, maybe slightly roomier. I'm around 6" at my base but they taper down, so they feel about the same as regular condoms at the ring.

    I'm 7.5 x 5.75 and I find Magnums to be much better than regular condoms. Those tended to constrict the base of my cock making it very uncomfortable to wear. Magnums are a little looser but still tight enough to stay on.

    I actually found magnums to be a little tight. And I don't consider myself that large. I can't even pull those off! Some one should write to the company and tell them they need to make different sizes in magnums.

    I would agree with most on here. I am 8" x 6" and made the switch to Magnums about a year or two ago and they work great. They feel way better and it doesn't hurt to see someone get a little excited when they see the gold wrapper lol.

    Im pretty much the exact size you are [to the OP] 7.5 length while the head is 5.5 and so is the base. Lifestyles are too snug and just hurt and take forever to get on, but when I tried magnums they fit just fine, about .5" longer then me, but as far as room goes, perfect.

    Great, thanks for the help. I'm going to make the switch, I think. Those Lifestyles were absolutely miserable. I can't imagine anyone with 5.5" around can fit one on comfortably.
