Don’t you hate it when the condom is so tight you lose your erection?Obviously, I haven’t actually had this happen directly to me as I don’t have a penis, but I and many women are affected by this just like men. It’s a real bummer.

Or, as in the case of “heartthrob” Enrique Iglesias, perhaps the condom is not small enough.  In 2007, it was reported (perhaps erroneously) that Enrique Iglesias wanted to launch his own range of small condoms because he “can never find extra-small condoms, and I know it’s really embarrassing for people – you know, from experience.”

Condoms usually come in a 6.5 inches size, with the exception of the “Magnum” or extra large condoms. That leaves everyone else in between, or below the radius, without adequate protection making them susceptible to sexually transmitted diseases, pregnancy, the lost erections and angry lovers.   

If only there existed a custom-made condom…

Well, the same institution that brought us the fact that French men have the biggest penises on average, bring us – the spray-on condom. German Jan Vinzenze Krause of The Institute of Condom Consultancy said in an interview with the New York Times that he got the idea from a car wash, “he realized he could make a tube into which an erect penis could be inserted and then sprayed with a liquid latex from all sides.” This video from Reuters demonstrates the idea.

The product is not yet available to the public, but men who have tried the product had positive reviews according to Krause, but there are drawbacks. For example, it takes two minutes for the latex to dry and be ready to use. Two minutes is definitely way too long when you’re in the heat of the moment. Krause said his goal is to get the condom to dry in 10 to 15 seconds. Another setback to bringing the product to the market are the strict European product standards.

For now, you can get custom-made condoms from TheyFit. Simply download the measurements kit and send in your measurements to Condomania. Unfortunately, shipping to the US is not currently available.
