Let’s Talk Condoms

Lambskin:

These condoms are made from sheep intestines and probably the closest to what our ancestors used.sheep
Pros:

  • usable with latex allergy
  • users say they have the most natural feel to them

Cons:

  • not as widely sold as synthetic condoms
  • more expensive than synthetic condoms
  • while providing pregnancy protection, they may not provide protection against STIs due to the porous nature of the material.

 

Fun fact:

The thinnest latex condoms in the world were officially confirmed by Guinness Records in 2013 as .036 mm (0.0014 inches) thin. They are manufactured by the Chinese company Guangzhou Daming United Rubber Products Limited. The thickness of a standard condom is .070mm, that’s nearly double the size of the world record.

 

Sizes of Condoms

As you know, there are different sizes of condoms available in the US. These sizes are:

length girth
Snugger Fit 7 to 7.8 inches under 2 inches
Standard Fit 7.25 to 7.8 inches 2 to 2.12 inches
Larger Fit 7.8 to 8.1+ inches larger than 2.12 inches

It is recommended that you buy condoms that are about 0.15 to 0.2 inches smaller in circumference than your penis. This makes for a tight fit without too much compression. Check out the condom size chart here.

Fun facts:

The difference between a regular Trojan condom and a Trojan Magnum is 0.32 inches in length, precisely 7.8 inches long and 8.12 inches long, respectively. A Trojan Magnum XL is also 8.12 inches long, but the differences between all three of the sizes are more significant when it comes to girth.

Durex XXL is the longest condom on the market at 9.5 inches long and 2.13 inches wide.

Caution Wear Iron Grip Snugger Fit condoms are the smallest lubricated, latex condoms on the market at 6.7 inches long and 1.92 inches wide.

    The article says this, but not hard enough — I didn’t understand for years: that compression feeling, like someone’s constantly squeezing? It means the condom’s too small around. And that 1/10 of an inch matters a lot.

    Don’t bother trying to measure, you won’t be accurate enough with the tape to tell the difference between 1.99″ and 2.13″. Just buy a couple of different sizes. Slips off, too big; hug of death, too small.

    I do consider all of the ideas you’ve introduced on your post.
    They’re very convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are
    very short for novices. Could you please prolong them a little from subsequent time?

    Thanks for the post.
