hawl: Maybe you all know this but I have only seen it at a few sites like-www.bootysmack.com/domaincgi/talkback/994155546,11830,.shtml www.maximonline.com/world_o_sex/ask/archive_Your.html and www.eye.net/eye/issue/issue_09.23.99/columns/lovebites.html (supposedly it was in FHM magazine around July 2001, and Condomania endorses the test). A toilet paper roll (not a paper towel roll, which is larger) is both shorter and wider than the average penis. Therefore, if (like me-a humble but authentic 8x6, at least if I'm reading a post by Emily Wee) you cannot easily slide the roll down to the base of your penis so that it is sticking out of the other end, then you really do require large (or extra-large) condoms. All others, do whatever it takes to compensate, but condoms are supposed to prevent pregnancy and HIV, both of which used to be considered matters of life and death. I have read elsewhere that if your girth exceeds 5.25 inches you probably need large-sized condoms. Why isn't this information more widely distributed? Trojan Magnum XL has that over-the-top (though not aesthetically displeasing) ad claiming it is for 6% of the male population, 7.3 million Americans etc., but doesn't say where their data comes from. I think it comes from that widely publicized Lifestyles spring break research in Mexico-http://abcnews.go.com/sections/us/WolfFiles/wolffiles155.html that besides showing 75% of males fall below Kinsey's "average" length (6.4 inches I think) showed there was a substantial need for a "snugger" condom, and found only about 8% were at 5.5 inch girth or above. Please correct any of this if I'm remembering incorrectly.
