A while back my dad gave me a condom "just in case" in one of those incredibly awkward (yet oddly touching) father son moments. I was curious and decided to try it on a few days ago, figuring that it's better to make a mistake now than when I actually need it. Everything went fine, except it seemed to not want to go over the base of my penis, where it is thickest. It fit quite well and everything seemed peachy until this morning when I felt some soreness around where the condom rested. I have heard of condoms being too tight on those of more than average girth, and I fit the bill being somewhere between 5.5 and 6 inches. I didn't notice at the time, but I'd guess that it was too tight. I browsed around here and the net for a while to figure out how to get a condom that fit well and decided that buying some larger condoms to try was the way to go. I picked up a 3 pack of magnums, non-xl and tried one on. It seemed to fit great around the base and did not move around nearly as much. I am around (possibly a little under) 7 inches long and there was a bunch of extra material near the base. Is this a problem? Also, my head is the smallest part of my member and the magnum (as well as all condoms I could find) makes the assumption that the head will be the largest part. There was some looseness around the head as a result. Not a whole lot, but definitely noticeable to me. Is this dangerous in terms of safety? It did not slide around at all while I was masturbating, so I didn't really think it would be a problem, but better safe than sorry. Are the magnums right for me? Is there anything else I should know or try?
