Post condoms

The problem I have might sound like I am moaning but its still a problem.
Basically I putting on a condom really hard work. When ever I try its so clumsy and awkward that it makes me go down and stops me getting it on at all. I find it does just roll over like you see on the leaflet you get with them. I've been told it could be to do with the fact that I am circumscised and I find it hard to get past the ridge of the head. Also I quite a large penis.
I fight that they are really tight and you can see the blood having trouble getting through to get aroused. If I have it on for a long time it starts to hurt. Also I am worried about putting one on and air getting in it (which happens a lot) and it breaking inside. Which has happened.

I do want to practice safe sex from things like STD etc but find its really hampering my sex life.
A past lover suggested I use extra large condoms.
Is this a viable action?

Sure, just buy bigger condoms. They're usually called "magnums" or something like that. A condom really does unroll right down the penis quite easily. If you are having that much trouble it sounds like they are too small. Also, be sure you're not trying to unroll them the wrong way. They only unroll in one direction.

Also, make sure you buy lubricated condoms ... makes rolling them down much easier. Easiest of all to use are lambskins, but they don't protect against HIV.

I'm with snazzy -- too-small condoms will feel too tight and be hard to put on.

Also, try masturbating with one on to get you used to it. It will help.

I had the exact same thing, and then, when I started using MAXIM, it makes all the difference in the world, for the better. (I just have to be careful when I take it off, that it doesn't spill, cause it gets very loose when I am soft)

Hey buddy I know how u feel. If you can get the Trojan large (come in a green box). They roll on really easily, the only problem is that they kinda smell. I really don't like the smell of trojans. Anybody know of other large size condoms that don't smell? Or maybe its just the spermicide on them.

I hate condoms. I use magnums with my girlfriend and they take all the fun out of sex for me, i mean i can't feel anything. Then she got on the pill and we go w/o condoms and it is the best thing ever. SO MUCH BETTER. my advice is to get a steady hot girlfriend and have her get on birth control and pull out before you ejaculate. It is so much better.

senoflys - I think the odor is from the spermicide. I have used several different Trojan styles, all of them had spermicide - and all smelled the same.

Use the Magnum brand of larger condoms. They fit much better and are available lubricated either with a spermicide or with a plain lubricant.

As for the air inside...the proper way to put on a condom is to pinch the small recepticle at the tip shut while you put on the condom. This prevents air from getting trapped inside and then allows the space to collect your ejaculate without the condom breaking.
