What Condom Should I Use
 
Apr 8, 2016

Using a condom is one of the best ways to protect yourself from diseases and lowers the risk of pregnancy. With a vast variety of options, I'm going to discuss a few different options. Hopefully I can help you make the right decision with the following information.

 

The first thing we need to do is discuss measuring. Measuring for the correct size is very important. An ill fitting condom can break or slide off easily. Here's how to make sure you have correctly measured yourself. Before we get started on your penis measurement process, there is an important note about your penis length measurement versus the length measurement of a condom. Please take the reservoir tip (if the condom has one) and space for ejaculate into consideration when choosing the length of condom you’d like to purchase.


Measurement Materials Needed:

 

Pen

Paper

Soft Measuring Tape (like the ones a tailor uses)

String and a Ruler (only needed if you don’t have a soft measuring tape)

 

Measure:

 

Gather your materials.

While fully erect, position the measuring tape or piece of string at the base of your shaft, where it meets your pubic bone.

Measure all the way to the end of the tip and use the pen to mark this spot on the tape or string.

Without squeezing the shaft with the tape or string, gently wrap the penis once around for a girth measurement, approximately 1/4” away from the body. Start the wrap on the underside, so it is easier to mark the tape or string when it reaches the top.

 

If using string, lay it out taught on a flat surface and compare the two marks with a ruler to find your exact measurement.

 

Once you have your correct measurement you have options for the type of condom you want to use. There are all kinds of types of condoms. Today I will be discussing non latex and ribbed condoms.

 

Allergies to latex condoms can cause a rash on the penis, or on the genital skin of your sexual partner. As well as redness, there may be blistering and itching. The rash usually occurs 6–48 hours after using the condom. This is something that you don't have to experience.

 

Here are some of the non-latex products we carry at Condomania.com:

 

SKYN is a Polyisoprene Condom made by LifeStyles. LifeStyle SKYN is the first premium condom made from polyisoprene: a scientifically formulated non-latex material that delivers the ultimate sensitivity that is the closest thing to wearing nothing. Polyisoprene material provides softer, more natural feel than latex that's clinically proven to enhance sensation. Combines the strength of premium latex with the sensitivity of an ultra thin condom for that Skyn-to-Skyn sensation. Ideal for people with latex allergies or latex sensitivity. Long-lasting, ultra smooth lubricant enhances the experience. Delivers the strength of Premium Latex with the sensitivity of an Ultra Thin condom.

Each condom is electronically tested to meet U.S. Safety & Reliability standards. This condom is lined with silicone based lubricant. It is fine to use either a silicone or water based lubricant with this condom. They are quite thick, and may rip easily on particularly well-endowed users. They also might require extra lubrication, and are not good for people with piercings. They also have a different smell than latex condoms. Users commented that climax sensation was reduced. Available in packs of 3, 12 or 24 condoms Thickness: 53 mm. Product Dimensions: 1.8 x 5.4 x 5.4 inches.
