Got a question for the Lucky Bloke experts?
Let us answer it so you can concentrate on having the hottest sex possible!
Dear Lucky Bloke,
Getting my boyfriend to use a condom is always a struggle. He says that he hates using condoms because they always feel like they’re going to slip off, which is totally distracting. Is there something wrong with him? I’ve never had this happen with another guy. Help! - Signed, Katy in Hoboken
First of all, congrats on taking the initiative to have safe sex - that’s awesome! Rest assured, there is nothing wrong with your boyfriend, or you for that matter. It sounds like he might be experiencing some issues with condom fit - a problem that is actually way more common than most people realize. Let us explain -
Contrary to what we’ve been lead to believe, condoms are not one-size-fits-all. What most people don’t realize is that quality and personal fit are as essential to condoms as they are to other personal apparel. Would you buy a shirt or a pair of shoes in the wrong size? Of course not. The same applies to condoms.
I think Cher from the movie Clueless sums it up best when she says, “You see how picky I am about my shoes and they only go on my feet.”
Most condom users don’t realize that condoms actually come in three different sizes: small, medium and large.
The R&D department at Lucky Bloke HQ has discovered that 70% of people who dislike wearing condoms are wearing the wrong size condom. When you (or your partner) are wearing a condom that fits properly, both of your pleasure, as well as your safety, is exponentially increased.
If your boyfriend finds that condoms are too loose and worries that they may slip and fall off, he may find a condom with a slimmer, more tailored fit to be much more comfortable and pleasurable to use.
On the flipside, if you or your partner find condoms are too tight or even painful, you might find one of Lucky Bloke’s larger condom brands is what you need.
Not sure exactly what size condom you need? No problem.
