When it comes to teens and safe sex, an ounce of prevention can go a long way.
Anyhow, if the condom feels loose or slips around or it is too big it might be more comfortable and safer to use a slimfit condom. If the condom feels too tight and restrictive it is too small perhaps it would more comfortable and safer to use a larger condom. However, 50% of men can use the standard size condom sold in most stores and passed out at most schools and clinics.
When a man is wearing the proper sized condom, there is much less chance of becoming one of the 80% in the study. Also, sex is more enjoyable and safer when wearing the proper size condom.
Now I understand this might not be the easiest conversation you have ever had, but you are providing important information that is generally not offered in high school health class.
This first talk should begin to open the dialogue between you. I would suggest circling back. You may even want to consider sending your teen an email as well before the conversation to provide an overview of the most important information you wanted to share. This may give you both a little more space to insure that the information is properly shared and received.
