    Hi Guys,

    I'm sure a lot of guys have tried this, i'm just wonder what size are you and how was the fit for you? Do you recommend them?

    Thanks,
    -Nick

    If you look at the dimensions for Trojan regular size, Trojan Magnum, and Trojan Magnum XL condoms you will find some interesting info. They all have a ring or base width of 2 inches. Note that the width doesn't refer to the width of your penis, but the width of the condom completely flattened out. So a condom width of 2 inches would correspond to a girth of 4 inches not stretched out. Obviously, they have to be smaller than you are to be snug enough not to slip off.

    The Magnums and Magnum XL condoms flare out at the closed end, where your glans goes. The regulars are fairly cylindrical throughout. The maximum width of the Magnums is 2.5 inches and that for the Magnum XLs is 2.7 inches. Therefore the XLs may feel better if you have a prominant head. The regular Trojan condoms are around 7 1/2 inches long and the Magnums and XLs a little over 8 inches.

    The condom just has to be tight enough not to slip off. The tighter the fit, the more radial sheer stress is placed on the Latex and the more likely the condom is to rupture or leak.

    I haven't used condoms for years but for what it is worth I am about 5.3" girth at the glans, 5.6" at the shaft and just a fraction under 6" right at the base. I did use the regulars for years and never had one pop but they felt tight. Then I switched to a larger size like Trojan Magnums and they felt much more comfortable, and I never had one slip off. Either the regulars or the Magnums had plenty of length for me. The Magnums had enough room at the head so I never felt the need to try the Magnum XLs.

    If you are going to try a larger size than you are used to I would advise you do two things. First try one on before you are with a partner to see how it feels. Second, after you "get in", stop after a minute and check to make sure it hasn't slipped off.

    My size is 8.7X6.2 and they fit pretty snug on me I've actually broken a few. so I would say if your girth is at least 5.8 you shouldn't have any worries. Like redbear said it's all about headspace

    yea i use magnum XL becose i have a very large head and the other rubbers were too tight, so i would recommend them if u have a fat glans.
    ps: try trojan magnum without a reservoir end if you're like me and dont like to ejac in the condom

    Magnums and Magnum XLs are both fine on me. I prefer Magnums because of the slightly tighter fit.

    If the width is what is always too snug or if you just don't want anything that tight around your dick, may I suggest a female condom. Take the inside plastic ring out of it if you are using it for anal and use it just like a condom. It's larger than any mens condom out there. It stays inside and doesn't bind you at all. I highly suggest any man who has larger girth try them. No more cutting off circulation or losing sensitivity.
