When picking the right condom, one of the most crucial factors to consider is the ‘latex stretch’. This isn’t just about size; it’s about finding the right balance for both pleasure and safety. The latex stretch, calculated by dividing your penis circumference by the condom circumference, determines how snug or loose a condom will feel.
Personally, I lean towards a snugger fit, aiming for a latex stretch of around 17 to 20%. This range feels secure and comfortable without being overly tight. Going above 20% starts to feel too constricting for me.
So, I’m curious – what’s your ideal latex stretch percentage? Do you prefer a fit that’s snug, or something a bit more relaxed? And how did you figure out what’s best for you? Let’s share our experiences and maybe help others find that sweet spot between comfort and security.
