    I thought condoms were one size fits all but I recently used one for the first time ( lost my virginity late - 22. The girl complimented me telling me i was big but i assumed this was just a confidence boosting remark. I really struggled to put the condom on - had to stretch it over my penis but i assumed they have to be tight. It felt VERY uncomfotable.

    Im 6.5 inches long - which isnt the issue, im 6 inches around and i think this is why it feels tight, are there other condoms I can get or are they just supposed to feel tight anyway?

    Yes, it can be much harder to put condoms on if you have a thicker penis, and yes, there are larger (wider) condoms. Before these became available, I had to find unlubricated ones because pre-lubricated ones were so difficult to get on and they were never particularly comfortable.

    Try the wider Skyns - the combination of the material they're made of and their extra width should make those an option.

    An alternative is to take a female condom, throw away the inner ring and use that as a baggy condom. Much easier to put on.

    You're just too big for standard condoms. Condoms are not one size fits all.

    You can get a larger size from mycondom.co.uk and some branches of Boots. As you've observed, it's really important to get the right size as too small ones split easily, and it's unlikely that a girl will have large ones in her stash.

    Basically all condom splits I've had (which is always a cause of PANICPANICPANIC) have been because we didn't have the correctly sized condom. I really appreciate guys who are organised enough to get the right size and reduce that risk.

    Thanks for the website. The condom splitting did scare me although we ended up doing it without them because we were both virgins and she was on the pill but I definitely dont want to be in that situation again.
