Time to give Magnum XL's a try?

    So, I never really knew I was big until I tried (repeatedly and unsuccessfully) to put a regular sized condom on.

    I tried regular Magnums and have been using them for a while, but they are extremely tight. I can go halfway flaccid and the condom still doesn't come off without some wrangling.

    I'm not freakishly long at all (7.25 in), I've just got good girth (6 in).

    Is this big enough for a Magnum XL or will that be too loose? Anyone of similar size have advice?

    Pants are sized smaller than they really are so yeah, why not give the XL's a try?

    it's all trial and error. various condom stores online have a variety of sizes. girth definitely requires adjustments.

    You have quite the thick piece. Consider a female condom. I've used them for years. They're enormously thick and downright baggy. So with the right amount of lube you'd never know you were wearing anything. Needless to say, it feels better to the top but also to the bottom because there's zero friction. The trick is to use almost no lube on the outside of the condom, but apply lube liberally to the inside. This way the condom stays inside the bottom while the top can insert and exit as much as he likes with no condom on his dick.

    I tried them and they work much better. They're all I use now.

    Yeah if a condom feels too tight get a larger size. I can't use normal condoms I use Magnums and they work well for me.

    I'm not sure what the sizing of the Magnums are but I switched to Durex XL and I find them far more comfortable - am about 8" and thick, regular condoms tend to feel very tight and I end up having a red welt around the base of my cock for some time afterwards where the ring at the end of the condom was cutting into my cock.

    So definitely try the XL, I think you'll really feel the difference.

    To the guy recommending a female condom, I'm not sure that's such a good idea because they are designed for a vagina not an ass and I'd be worried it would somehow slip out of place and you could end up barebacking without even realising it. Or it could break more easily.

    I think it just has something to do with being able to tell the cashier you need to Magnum XL.
    As far as I can tell, gay men are completely unable to measure their dicks with any sort of accuracy. Between me and my friends, our experience has been every guy who claims 7 inches has 4, 8 inches, 5 and so on. Maybe because when they should have been learning to measure they were playing with dolls, I am not sure, but they do not understand how to take an accurate account of their penis and when it comes to condom size, I am pretty sure all they really want is to impress a cashier, because a magnum penis to fill up a magnum condom is few and far between, just sayin.

    Wow this is crazy... if you were having problems with condoms being tight you should have just tried them on, you know, jerk off and try the larger ones to see if they are good. The amount of breakage you could have had... you better go get yourself tested!

    You really have to ask.

    Just try the XL. If they work for you, great. If they don't, nobody gives (or takes) a fuck.

    Try using non-Latex condoms. I have the same issues, and while the regulars are still really tight, they don't seem to numb the sensations as much. Just don't keep them on for too long, in the same way you have to take off a tight cockring after a while.

    I've been using them for many years. I've had regular condoms break but never one of these things. There's no way you could "accidentally bareback" with this condom.

    MikemikeMike: I'm late onto the gay scene. It's not that unbelievable is it? You don't have sex before marriage, get married young and you don't use condoms, and later you find these things out.

    MarkRoger: I'm fine. The regular Magnums were tight but not unmanageable. I just thought, "Nah, I'm not big enough for an XL," imagining that only 8+ inch guys wore them.

    Anyway, I did try the XL's and they are much better. Not perfect, but better. They still tend to leave a red ring at the bottom of the shaft since they are tapered and tighter down there, but the overall experience is much, much, much better with them.
