How annoying is it when a guy doesn’t want to use a condom? It’s not even just annoying, it’s actually a really douchebag move. But maybe there’s a reason he doesn’t want to protect his junk: it could be because it just doesn’t fit him.
I know that might sound super lame, but apparently it’s true. A new study out of Hunter College has discovered that the bigger the penis, the more likely a dude is not going to want to wear a condom. It sort of makes sense… if the condom doesn’t fit and is too tight, obviously he’s not going to want to put it on. Do I enjoy putting on tights that are too small? No (that’s the only comparable thing I can think of?), I don’t. So what’s the most obvious solution? Buy condoms that fit.
This study proves that a condom that’s too small is not only annoying, it’s also potentially dangerous. The lead author of the study, Dr. Christian Grov says that a “standard one-size-fits-all condoms might be inadvertently encouraging men to engage in unprotected sex if they’re frustrated with ill-fitting prophylactics.”
Wait, so why don’t they just buy Magnums? What I’m getting from this study is that bigger condoms are more difficult to find – less than 40 percent of the dudes surveyed said it was “easy” to find condoms that fit them. And also, as our buddies over at Global Grind have previously pointed out, Trojan Magnums aren’t necessarily larger than the average condom.
Even still, I find this “condoms are too small for me” argument a lame one. There are larger sized condoms out there dudes (look at this Google search for them!), and if you feel like a regular one simply isn’t big enough for you, than go out and buy a bigger one! I don’t have a penis so I can’t say for sure, but it doesn’t sound that difficult to me. Maybe these larger condoms aren’t as readily available to you as a “normal” sized condom is, but they’re still available. Order them online! Go out of our way to buy one! Or don’t, and have unsafe, unprotected sex… if you can find a chick who will let you.
Moral of the story? Not using a condom is not okay. If your man is complaining about the fit of his condoms, then help him find one that fits more comfortably. There are tons of different condoms out there and a complaint about how they fit just isn’t an acceptable excuse not to wear one.
Have you ever heard a guy complain about the way condoms fit? What would you say if a guy told you he refused to wear a condom? Tell us in the comments.
