Condoms for Larger Men?

When you are longer or wider than average, it can be extremely difficult to find an appropriately sized condom in a retail store. And, since condom companies do not list any of their sizes on their packaging, it can be frustrating and costly to invest in box after box of condoms, only to have them fit incorrectly at inopportune moments. Some brands may advertise as having larger fit condoms which, when measured, are practically average sized.

We completely understand and sympathize with your dilemma, and we do not want you to have to give up on having safer sex due to only being able to find a way-too-tight selection of condoms. That’s why we have compiled this article to specifically convey which condoms are best for larger men. And, you can order them right here, online, or over the phone, without the inevitable awkward encounter with a cashier or store clerk.

Measuring for an Accurate Fit

But first, before we go into the product names and sizes which are best for larger men, it is essential to have a precise measurement of the circumference and length of your own or your partner’s erect penis. A soft measuring tape (like the ones tailors use) is recommend for this, but you can use a piece of string and mark the spot, and then compare that to a ruler, if you don’t have access to a soft tape measure.

When it comes to condoms, the length size is always listed first, followed by the circumference. Just be sure to measure all the way from the pubis to the tip. If a condom does not cover the entire length of the shaft, this can leave the genitals exposed to a potentially dangerous transfer of bodily fluids.

The circumference measurement refers to the base size, so take your shaft circumference measurement from about a quarter of an inch away from your torso for the best results. This measurement is particularly important because having the proper girth size will not only be more comfortable, it will prevent tearing, ripping and breaking during intercourse due to the condom’s material being stretched beyond capacity.

An Alternative Larger-Fit Condom Solution

For extremely girthy men (over 7.84”), who feel discomfort due to the constriction of too-small condoms, the FC2 may be the best option. The FC2 female condom has a 9.03” circumference and is inserted into the vagina (or anus, although it is not yet FDA approved for anal use) while the penis stays bare. Essentially, the receiving partner wears the condom.

The FC2 is like any other condom in the sense that it’s highly effective in preventing unwanted pregnancies and the transmission and contraction of STDs. In fact, studies show that the FC2 is actually more effective than male condoms for protection against skin-to-skin STDs like herpes and genital warts, because the outer rim of the condom covers some of the outer regions like the labia or the area around the anus. Another added benefit is the FC2 is made from a non latex material, which is great if you or your partner need a larger fit condom which is also not made out of latex.
