    I don't understand why I seem so prone to broken condoms. About a year ago while going out with a girl I had a condom break twice...two weeks in a row (nothing like being the guy who has to go pick up plan B two weeks in a row). Now two nights ago, while having sex with my current girlfriend the condom broke again. I just don't know what I'm doing wrong here. After the first time I spent like 4 hours research, and looking up proper condom application and what not. Both girls have been plenty wet. This last one is considerably tight (she's like a 110 lbs Asian...) but I can't imagine that's the cause.

    The first time it happened we were using a Magnum (the first time I ever tried one) the second time was a regular trojan, and last night was durex extra sensitive. I really don't think I'm particularly big (and I don't mean that in a faux modesty way) so I don't get why this keeps happening. I see people putting condoms over their heads, or filling with like 2 gallons of water, so what gives?

    Does anyone have any suggestions on brands or the like?

    PS-on a slightly upside, at least I noticed it broke before I came.

    depends.. how much time having sex, are you heary? Do you go fast instead of slow? The rubber is a kind of plastic and when it warms up it may break if there is friction and no moisture.

    I'd check to make sure the condom hasn't expired. I use Magnum XL and I've only had one of them break on me (gone through multiple boxes). You might try some lube as well.

    Check the date on the condoms. They might be expired, or a bad box.

    I've had those Durex ones break on me. And I usually do a lot of thrusting before I cum, so I tend to put some wear and tear on a condom before cumming. I've found Magnums and Magnum XLs to be pretty reliable, but you might also want to try them with a little lube: both inside, for you, and outside, for her. That also might keep the breakage level down. And your partner might be surprised that it feels even better, too ...

    How are your fingernails?

    I've only ever broken one condom, so I don't have much experience here, but I think I might have nicked it while putting it on and then the sex ended up shredding it from that point.

    On a different note, you mentioned that these condoms broke while you weren't wearing jewelry. Is there any scar tissue on the exit hole that might be abrading the condom?

    Tips:

    1. Put lube in the condom
    2. Make sure the girl is wet. She may dry up over time and get sore. The friction will break the condom.
    3. Don't put all your weight on one side of your body whilst fucking or you will be rubbing against one side of her wall which can create friction and break the condom.
    4. Some are bad batches. I broke four condoms in one night. Magnums too. Makes me wonder what I'm paying for because they obviously weren't 'triple tested' for effectiveness or whatever the slogan is.

    sex shop girl answer is: air bubbles.

    air bubbles seem to be the main cause of random unexplained condom destruction. remember to pinch those reservoir tips boys. check for air bubbles long the shaft and just under the glans.

    the rest you covered with ya follow up post. condoms new. lubrication aplenty. size appropriate. some brands stand up better than others. maybe check out something like condom world where they got ample customer reviews.

    Try polyurethane or polyisoprene - Avanti, Supra or Skyn. They tend to be more durable and they transmit heat well.

    The scar tissue from piercings isn't going to cause failure - I'd blame air, insufficient lubrication, overfilling (remember, they're not rubbing the overfilled ones back and forth for N minutes).

    I fuck with my CBR PA in, and always have. I've never broken a non-latex condom with them, and I've never broken an oversized latex one. There were a few incidents with bowling-alley-grade rubbers procured on short notice.

    Hmmm, air bubble eh? I always squeeze the reservoir tip, but I have to be honest... I don't typically do a thorough inspection. I don't know that that's what happens, but at least it's something I haven't considered.

    Also the fingernail thing may be a possibility. I generally have a hard time rolling the condom down, so I do the "put on like a sock thing"

    Thanks for the insight.

    I used to sleep with this girl who had a fantastic little box. After I had been pumping away for 30 minutes or so her wetness went from the typical slickness that we are all familiar with to more of a watery consistency. The watery stuff was very hard on the condoms, even though she was very wet. Maybe this sounds familiar to you.

    Hi,

    If you're particularly girthy, this can apparently increase the likelihood of breakage. According to a study conducted by La Trobe University in Australia, "In fact, each additional centimeter of penis circumference beyond the average 13.19 cm increased the risk of breakage by 50-100%". So you might want to try wider condoms. I had problems where I switched brands for a week and broke like 3 in a row. As soon as I switched back to my regular brand, things were a-ok.

    So if I'm reading google converstions correctly, anything neyond 5.1 inches (I don't think in metric) should warrant a wider condom? Like I said, the irst time that it happened we were using a magnum, but that may have been a freak thing. I thought it felt just a little bit loose, but it was some time ago. At my hardest, I'm maybe a little under 6 inches girth wise, but that's...you know, perfect storm erection.

    If you don't mind me asking, what's you're usual brand.

    Just to be sure - you aren't using oil-based lubes, are you? The oil breaks down ordinary condums, but water-based lubes are safer.

    I don't use any lube (with this girl). She was pretty well soaked, and we were on our second go round when it happened (with a fresh condom)

    Hi size_is_relative, my "perfect storm erection" is about 6.5-6.75" girth. I started using Theyfit condoms and haven't had any problems since. Before theyfits, I had problems with any of the Durex condoms and this one weird pink brand that I never bought again (can't remember the name). I had fewer problems with Lifestyles Large and Magnum XL's.
