Image credit: Bill Haney, Trying to weed thru every condom in any store is a time consuming and frustrating undertaking, so a condom size chart is the perfect solution to this problem. If a condom is too small, it can be constrictive and hamper a man's performance in the bedroom. If a condom is too big, it can cause bigger problems if it leaks fluid or slips off during intercourse.
How Condom Sizes Work (and Why Choosing the Right One Matters)

Your first experience with condoms may have been stretching one over a banana in the ninth grade. Maybe you remember fumbling with one before your first time in the backseat of a car.

It turns out that I may not be alone. Regardless of where you fall on the gender and sexuality spectrum, we could all benefit from having some basic knowledge about condoms.

Condoms are still the most effective way to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. Men have been using them for over 11, years, after all, so the technology is pretty sound. But a condom's got to fit right—not so loose it slips off or so tight it breaks. This is where knowing your exact size really helps. The most important measurement for picking a condom is girth, not length.
It could also affect your ability to orgasm. You can use a ruler or measuring tape. This means you could end up buying a condom smaller than you need. Remember that your girth is the distance around your penis. Your width is your diameter.
