What are magnum condoms?

Magnum condoms are large size condoms, typically with a nominal width between 58mm and 60mm. In general, magnum condoms are about 30% bigger than standard condoms. As most condom sizes, the magnum size isn’t regulated in any way. In other words, brands can name their condoms magnum to refer to condoms that are larger in width, length, or both.

Like condoms in all other sizes, magnum condoms can fit a range of penis sizes. Depending on the brand, magnum condoms can offer a looser or tighter fit.

Are magnum condoms large or extra large?

The majority of magnum condoms are large in size. However, each brand can use a different standard. For instance, Trojan’s Magnum XL condoms have the same size as the large condoms from Pasante or EXS.

Another example is Lelo Hex Respect XL, which the brand considers extra large, but that only has a nominal width of 58mm. To make sure the magnum condoms you want will suit you, check out the actual dimensions on the condom’s packet and compare them with your penis’ size.

If you haven’t measured your penis yet, grab a tape measure or string and ruler and measure its girth and length.

To measure your penis girth:

  1. Wrap the tape measure or string around the thickest part of your erect penis, usually around the middle of the shaft.
  2. Use the ruler to determine the length if you’ve used a string. This is your penis girth.

Is a magnum condom suitable for me?

There is no absolute rule for who should use a specific condom size, but as a general rule, a condom that fits perfectly is less likely to constrict, reduce sensations, break, or slip off during intercourse.

Most brands size their condoms based on both length and nominal width. As a rule of thumb, you should check the nominal width rather than the length when selecting the right size condom; that’s because most manufacturers make their condoms longer than necessary so that everyone with a certain penis girth can find the right size condom.

Men with a penis girth between 121mm and 135mm typically need a large size condom. If your girth fits this category, a magnum condom might be right for you. You can still use regular size condoms that are on the larger side, such as Durex, if you like a snugger fit. However, you should never use a condom that fits too tight or that hurts you.

If you have a penis girth higher than 135mm, a large size condom may be too small and you should buy an extra-large – or jumbo size – condom.

What brands make magnum condoms?

If you don’t care about the magnum in the name but need a large size condom, here are some of the best choices.

Do I have to use condoms for oral and anal sex?

Condoms are essential sexual health products and the only contraceptive method that also protects you against sexually transmitted infections. If your main concern is preventing a pregnancy and you are in a committed relationship and both you and your partner have been tested and resulted negative for any STI, then you can avoid using condoms for oral and anal sex.

However, if you’re into a new relationship or in any type of open relationship and your partner is not tested, you should use condoms for oral and anal sex.

Here are a few tips to make oral sex with a condom more pleasurable:

Using condoms for anal sex is as crucial as using them for oral sex. Here’s how to make it better:

Should I use condoms if my partner is on the pill?

You should use condoms even if your partner is on the pill if you’ve not been together for long and if you haven’t been tested.

In a long-term relationship, you might want to keep using condoms in addition to hormonal birth control if the idea of an accidental pregnancy scares you. No contraceptive method is bullet-proof, but using condoms and hormonal birth control is safer than using only one method.

If you are in any kind of open relationship, from polyamory to cheating, you should keep using condoms even if your partner is on birth control.

If both of you have been tested and yours is a monogamous relationship, discuss with your partner and decide what is best for you.
