    It's funny, last time I went to the grocery store, I walked by the condom section and there were several different types of condoms. Most had a couple of two taken out of it but the magnum section was almost entirely gone. If you've ever worked retail, you know all of these get filled up at the same time so it's not like somoene forgot to stock them or something--people in my area are just buying magnums more than regular condoms. Pretty hilarious, I doubt there's a surplus of big penises in my area...just a lot of deluded men :biggrin1:

    Oh and by the way I'm guilty of buying magnums from there once despite having a cock more average than anything, but that was just a test! I know I don't depend on them so I don't buy it anymore. I think every other guy around here does, though.

    well, that's cause your penis is pretty large! I'm just a bit larger than average at best so regular condoms fit perfect. I think guys roughly my size just go for the magnums to inflate their egos just because they can fit in them

    Regular condoms fit fine for me in length.. But girth wise it just doesn't happen. Magnums work really well for me in that regard

    well Lemcast if you look again you will see there are at least 15 regular brands.. and they only put about 3-5 packs of magnums and they sometimes dont even bother to put up mag XL why, because not that many people buy them ... I don't think they are filled up at the same time ( just think about it, what if they prefer a brand more than the other? when it gets empty they probably fill that one alone than the other ones because they are 70%+ filled.

    but hech you could ask the lady in blue at walgreens... :) they would tell you how is done. . .

    I think many people who could use mag's are afraid of buying them thinking is would be loose...

    I have to buy magnums, all the other ones break in seconds. It's mainly a girth issue for me.

    It's interesting. If you go to Condomania's website, the top selling condom there is actually the Lifestyles Snugger Fit. I suppose that means big guys are more than willing to pull the larger sizes from off the shelf while the smaller guys prefer to order online. I use the Snugger Fits but rarely (never) find them in stores. I don't mind buying them in public because I have no desire to fuck the 80 year old cashier with the hairy mole at my local drugstore, but it certainly does say something.

    Andyo I think you nailed it.
    I have been in the local pharmacy to buy condoms and if the magnums go down in numbers it's cause I and few others bought them.
    Restocking is based on turnover

    Magnums are always gone every time I go to CVS. I use them to accomodate my girth. Regular condoms strangle my cock. The shipments always arrive the first week of each month thank god.

    Who really needs magnums? Have you ever filled a regular condom with water? It could fill a horse's dick times 10 in girth. So, you're all using it for your egos. Admit it.

    The magnum are always out of stock here too. I think they only order a months supply but the regulars they get weekly shipments.

    I am guilty of buying them :redface:

    By your logic they could just make regular size condoms 10 times smaller and they'd still fit. Why don't they do that? I don't know your size, but have you ever tried on one of the smaller size condoms? I imagine a small condom to an average penis would feel like a regular condom to a larger penis--too tight!

    Let me guess, Magnums were the only larger than typical condom, while there where perhaps a dozen or so varieties of regular sized condoms that were missing one or two boxes. Could it be that the ratio of total regular condoms sold and total Magnum condoms sold was closer to what one would expect?

    i think if you worked at a place that sold condoms and stuff like that, it would be awkward. cause you have no choice but to ring it up and pretend like it's not a big deal. i always feel weird when i buy condoms and the only checkout lane open is like an older lady.
