To ask where I can buy bigger condoms?

Long story short, the pill is making me crazy. Nobody can stand to be around me because my moods are so bad! ... including myself! I can't use a lot of contraception due to severe migraines and don't want to use others for various reasons.

So we are left with condoms. Only problem is standard ones don't fit the boyfriend and neither do the 'xl' ones from standard brands. Only ones we've found that do are from theyfit/myone and at almost £7 for 6, I can't afford to be having sex! 😂

Can anyone think of any brand etc that I may have forgotten? Or am I just going to have to give up sex (definitely not risking another baby after an almost 11lb one earlier this year....definitely not considering that for a long time!).

Thanks x

I have no horse in this race as it were but I've had past partners at both ends of the scale.
The huge guy... yes I could see that a normal durex was too tight at the base and it kept rolling up.
I've also had a guy at the opposite end and I found the durex was too loose and they'd frequently come off during sex.
I'm now with a DH who is just right shoo these musings are for the past.

It's just not plausible.... However it brings to mind a classics thread about pencils and acorns.....
Can you get teeny tiny weeny condoms?

@overagain I agree, definitely not a stealth boast! Took years for me to get used to it and months after baby was born again!

BeenThereDone condoms come in extra small (quite hard to find), small, standard, large and extra large. They are all the same length but differ in width.

It's like lycra leggings, most leggings stretch to cover most sized arses, but if they are too small the crotch comes down, the band digs in. Same with condoms. The majority of men I've slept with have had 'average' sized penis's, however 2 have been noticeably larger and one obviously smaller, larger tends to be girth where as smaller tends to be length ime.

There are different at length condoms aswell, though not commonly sold here.
Look up condom sizes around the world, in Asia they are typically smaller, India found that a big problem with getting men to wear condoms was that they didn’t fit well, were too baggy. In Zambia it was found that imported condoms from China were much too small for the Male Zambian population and so many men were not using them, or when they did use them the condom would often break.

Yep it's real and ones that are too small tend to split we found.

@Icannystandit Grin you win the thread !

DP isn’t hugely long but is really thick and struggles with most condoms — kimono maxx is pretty good. Asian (including Indian) brands tend to be better for thick penises because most Asian men, while modesty in length, tend to be above average in thickness.

Does he struggle to open the packet

as I can't open my jaw wide enough

Oh my god, how big is he? 😲

Love the #Goldicocks 🤣


overagain · 01/11/2018 12:59

KittensAndCake fairly big! I can get it in but my teeth scrape it when I try and move. I don't have a particularly small mouth.


TitOfTheIceberg · 01/11/2018 13:58

Your posts are a bit contradictory. If you're on maternity leave then clearly you don't have to take time off work to get fitted with a coil. Make an appointment at the clinic in the next town or wherever and ask DP to take the same time off (assuming he's working) to look after the baby. Job's a good 'un.
