Poor-Fitting Condoms Cause Sexual Dissatisfaction for Men

Feb 16, 2010
Many men report about ill-fitting condoms, which increases the risk of sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancy as well as sexual dissatisfaction, a new study suggests.

Scientists conducted an online survey at the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction website of 436 men, aged between 18 and 67 that asked men about condom fit the last time they had sex with a woman. Almost 45 percent of all respondents reported about poor-fitting condoms in the last three months. The most common problems caused by poor-fitting condoms were condom slippage and breakage. Men also reported about irritation of the penis due to its poor fit.

Sexual dissatisfaction was also on the top of the complaints for wrong size condoms. If the condom fitted ill, it often led to difficulties reaching orgasm as well as reduced sexual pleasure during the intercourse, study revealed.

Besides, men who felt uncomfortable in a condom were twice as likely to take off the condom even before the end of the intercourse, which cancels the protection against STD's and increases the risk of unwanted pregnancy.

Researchers point out the importance of the adequate fit of the condom. Nowadays, different condom brands offer condoms that are different in size and shapes.

Tips to find good-fitting condom:


  • Explore the variety of condoms. Size, length and width of the condoms can vary, having a closer fit or larger fit. Condom that is too small is comfortable to wear, while condom that is too big can easily slip off during the intercourse. In order to find the right-fitting condom, it is recommended to try condoms from different brands.

  • Check the width of the condom. Many men think that if the condom is poorly fitting, it has the wrong length. In fact, in most cases condoms feels uncomfortable because their penis may be wider than the average. If you want a better fitting condom and have wider penis, watch for brands with larger width.

  • Test the length of the condom. Most of the condoms have the length that is larger than average, which is 7,5 inches long. But if you have longer penis, you may need to look for "large" or "XL" style condoms.

  • Try extra features. There is also a range of condoms that have additional features, like ribbed or dotted condoms. They may turn out to be better fitting too.

  • Try a female condom. If most condoms feel uncomfortable to you, you may also suggest your partner using female condom, which is worn inside a woman's vagina.

Think you had question<a href="http://xxuleofpyun.com"> psoted</a> in singles/dating as well. This was my answer.Can't believe I'm actually going to offer an answer on this. First would like to say, I have NOT had sex with many guys. I'm 36 and there's been 4 guys total. Ironically, this happened to me twice. Met my husband (soon to be ex actually) 13 years ago, he was going through divorce and the very first time we were going to be together same thing. Guy I've been seeing recently while we are both going through our divorces, the same exact thing happened to me again. Have to admit I was struggled the first time with him as well. Not trying to be conceited, but wasn't an issue of them not being attracted to me. These guys both had big hearts and couldn't just jump into bed with other women right away. They need to work things through mentally. Neither one of them had a problem performing after the first time. Like I said earlier, haven't been with a lot of guys, but both of them were pretty awesome in that department.Remember both of those times I just tried to let the guy know I understood. With the most recent guy, we even started laughing and joking around about crap that we were dealing with while still in bed and things just suddenly popped up. Think you know what I mean.

You should know there is a small chacne that HSV2 can spread even if condoms are used. Condoms don't protect all areas of the genitals. It's passed through skin contact, not through body fluids.There is a chacne that he may not have contracted it, herpes isn't 100 percent automatically passed on during sex. There is only a small chacne of it being passed on when there is no out break. Unfortunately all you can do now is wait and see if he gets an out break. Out breaks typically occur between 1-3 weeks after having sex with some one that has herpes. But it can take longer then 3 weeks to have an out break because the body can suppress herpes for long periods of time. If he doesn't have an out break with in 3 weeks then he should see a doctor and get tested for herpes.
