When shopping for condoms, it may require some experimentation to find the best condom for you. This is especially true since almost every condom brand has its own definition of regular and large. When other factors like whether a condom is ribbed, thin or contoured are taken into consideration, finding the best condom for you and your partner may take testing various types until you find the best fit. There are classic, traditional sized and a Platinum XL sized condoms out there for our sexual pleasure.
Ensure your partner that being safe is more important than the size of the condom he is wearing: Wearing a condom that fits properly will protect you both from the transmission of any STIs, including HIV. Also, wearing the properly sized condom can completely change how your partner experiences sex.
Focus more on the fun aspects of condoms: Besides size, condoms come in many varieties, including flavors (which should only be used for oral sex, as the sugary-ness of flavored condoms can irritate the vagina and the anus) as well as colors.
Try different types and styles: Ribbed condoms and condoms with a swirl or bulb at the end (which will usually be labeled as such on the box) can create more friction near the nerve endings of the penis. Also, polyurethane condoms can generate more body heat, and can create a more sensual experience.
Try different brands: Just like the jean size you purchase from The Gap may have a completely different size label but the same feel a pair of similarly fitted jeans from Express, different brands and how they feel for your partner will vary. An “extra large” in one brand may look similar in size to a condom from another brand that’s labeled as smaller. Test them out and see which ones feel better for your partner.
