Be Like, Comfortable, and Condom: Mousie If a boy ever tells you he's too big for a condom, please send him this magic-retina: siphersaysstuff: megabeeprime: snyderman37: anxiousartisan: paladinpup: kramergate: just because it “fits” doesnt mean its comfortable or sustainable stopppppppp this shit There are two main factors at play when someone says that a condom is too small: (1) the band size is too small (2) the condom is not sustainable The band is at the base of the condom. It’s latex is made thicker here than the shaft and is, therefore, less elastic. The band keeps the condom secure so it does not come off mid-insertion and so penial fluids do not leak from the condom. To do this, the band has to keep a very tight grip on the base of the penis. This is the main complaint from people using condoms too small for them. The shaft’s plastic can stretch comfortably, but the band is not so lenient and uncomfortably or painfully squeezes the base of the penis. Condoms in use experience a lot of friction. For a condom’s shaft or band to be stretched farther than it was intended weakens the latex. The band and shaft are then at risk of being broken from the friction. It fitting does not mean it is sustainable. If your partner says a condom is too small, believe them and cease from doing anything that requires a condom. If your partner says a condom is too small but is trying to pressure you into unprotected sex, kick them out the door.  Thaaaank you please read the above they make large and XXL condoms for a reason and it’s not to stoke men’s egos A former… friend suggested I try a size or two larger, and yes, they do work. Yep. At first, I thought that condoms were supposed to be that tight. I’d seen those “condoms can fit on a two liter bottle so quit your complaining,” I had no basis for comparison because dudes don’t talk about that shit, and no one wants to be that “HURR HURR GUESS I NEED A MAGNUM XL” guy. Now wear that condom on your arm for a while. Ten minutes at least. Still got sensation in your arm? One of the many failures of sex ed in this country is the notion that there’s only two types of condom, “fits everyone except those elephant-trunk-cock freaks” and “for elephant-trunk-cock freaks or lying braggarts” (and yes, there’s implicit shame in the idea of people needing non-”regular”-sized condoms and the genesis for such is pretty likely rooted in some really nasty viewpoints about certain groups of people but I’m digressing). But penises come in a LOT of dimensions, and not all of them fit right in a “normal” condom. You don’t need to have a monster down there for a condom to be legitimately painful and/or break mid-act. This can leave a lot of people legitimately unawares that it doesn’t have to be like this. (I was, early on.) Condom too tight? That’s a real problem for the reasons pointed out above. But it’s a solvable one at most drug stores, which generally have a broader (ha ha) selection than your Walmarts or Targets. Or suck it up (ha ha) and go to an “adult boutique” (a proper one) where they’re likely to have even more options and let’s be real here the people working at these aren’t gonna give you Looks over condom selection. Or shop at said boutiques online if you REALLY need to avoid the in-person thing. And if you think you’re gonna be doing things requiring condoms, HAVE YOUR OWN. Yes, even if you personally don’t have a penis. Buy a box of large-size as well just in case. And don’t let anyone give you guff over it, and don’t let anyone pressure you into unprotected sex because of condom size. For the record, even if you’re doing things that don’t involve a penis at all, condoms are good to have around. They make great dental dams on the fly, keep toys clean, and keep body parts clean if your partner is using their hands. :) Also, keep some non-latex ones around in case you or your partner has a latex allergy. Trust me, there are few places worse to have that allergic reaction. o_o

I wasn’t with the shits. Long story short I saved up some money and bought a sidekick. I had to get the monthly sim card minutes form the Arabs at the corner store. Everyhood got some Arab niggas tryna EXTORT the black community. My boy put me on to this NYC GROUP chat where you would send your age, sex and location.

I thought I was freak so I tell her that I wanted to suck in her titles while playing my GameCube. My mom busy in my room cause she heard the door slamming animation form aim. Black mommas hate when you slam the door in they crib. She saw my sidekick light up and took it. I had to fitness and say my friend left it in my bag from school and I was gonna return it.
