Matching dick size to condom size
By way of an example, let's use Fred (one of our volunteers) who kindly volunteered his dick stats:
His length erect: 14.5cm
His girth or circumference: 12.6cm
Condom calculators and charts
Even if Fred applies his measurements to website condom calculators, more often than not results show only those brands that the site sells. And he's wary about buying a brand he's not heard of before, or he might already prefer a brand which they don't sell.
Many websites also have charts which show at a glance that if your dick is 'X' wide and 'Y' long your condom size is 'Z'. The trouble is, when we compared 6 sites, we found 5 different condom width sizes for a dick with a 155mm girth: 52, 53-57, 50-51, 50-53, 49-51 with a range in difference of 8mm (that's nearly a centimetre). That's enough for a condom to easily slip off a smaller dick or choke a larger one!
Even when you work out your condom size, the information provided by some of the major condom manufacturers makes for grim reading (or rather lack of it) - though well done Skins and Pasante!
Durex only has condom width (under the 'more information' link, assuming you find the tab)
Lifetsyles has no condom spec info next to condoms
Mates has no condom spec info next to condoms
Pasante has clear condom spec info next to condoms (under 'additional information')
Skins has clear condom spec info next to its condoms
Skyn only has condom width next to its condoms
Trojan has no condom spec info (though a ton of subjective reviews, some real customers we presume)
