How To Pick The Right-Sized Condom

By ASTROGLIDE Team Sexual Health

First of all, Dr. Drai loves the male condom.

If the condom fits properly, it shouldn’t slip off or break, so you’re less likely to get preggo or catch a sexually transmitted infection or any sexually transmitted diseases. Just to let you know, condoms are sized in length and girth (width or thickness). And here’s something most people don’t realize — the girth is WAY more important than the length!

Let’s go over some tricks for you to pick the right condom size for you or your man’s penis. Here’s how to know what size condom to buy.

Trick #1: Measure the girth (thickness) of his penis when it’s erect.

Trick #2: If penis girth is less than 4.7 inches wide, try a “snug fit” condom. Try Beyond Seven Studded OR Glyde Slim Fit.

Trick #3: If penis girth is between 4.7-5.1 inches wide, try a “regular fit” condom. Try Lifestyles Skyn OR Durex Condoms PleasureMax

Trick #4: If girth is between 5.1-6 inches wide, try a “larger fit” condom. Size queens can I get an amen?! Try the FC2 female condom. Just take the inner thick ring out of the female condom and it turns into a male condom. Cool right?

How to Measure a Penis Without A Measuring Tape

In case you don’t have a measuring tape handy, don’t worry. You can also check penile girth by putting an erect penis in an empty toilet paper roll. To measure, use these simple guidelines:

If there’s too much room in the roll, try a snugger fit.

If the penis fits comfortably in the roll, a fit for a regular condom size will work.

If the penis can’t fit in the roll, it’s large. That’s pretty simple, right?

Remember to Be Prepared

Be careful and have some condom sense – avoid having the wrong size condom and always have three different size condoms with you at all times. You never know if your new guy will have a small, regular, or large penis. If you’re not experienced with condoms, you should practice putting a condom on a banana before you get too excited when you see the real thing. Practice makes perfect.

Oh and one more thing — make sure to use only latex-safe lubes with latex condoms!
