Men, still feeling inadequate after all these years. Acording to a new study, we are twice as likely to remove a condom halfway through sex if the fit isn't snug, which raises the risk of STDs and pregnancies:
While the standard latex condom is made to fit most men, many different sizes and shapes exist to account for the variations in male members. The problem, say researchers, is that most men don't know this variety exists. Additionally, men will often not buy condoms sized "small" or even "medium," they said.
Reminds me of the first joke I ever heard about condoms in high school. The Soviets, seeking to score a propaganda victory, ordered 50,000 condoms, 11 inches long, from an American company. Company officials knew what the Soviets were up to and finally came up with a solution. They shipped the 50,000 condoms, 11 inches as ordered, in boxes labeled "medium."
Oh, and I think I have a solution for this reluctance to buy small or medium condoms. Why don't we just change the size names to tall, grande and venti? Who could be embarrassed about buying a tall or grande condom?
