Difference Between Magnum and Regular Condoms

Magnum vs Regular Condoms

There’s a lot of buzz between condom sizes. Is it a matter of personal pride when men happen to buy larger sized condoms? Well, in as much as this may be the case, the truth of the matter is that some condoms that are named differently may just be a marketing ploy. Take, for example, the difference between a regular-sized condom and the magnum sizes which many are wondering if there really is a significant difference. The answer – yes, there is a difference but not that significant!

Foremost, there are many types of condoms. You can classify them according to the type of material used to make the condom (latex, polyurethane, lambskin, and polyisoprene), strength/thickness (regular strength, strong, extra strong), shape (regular, fit-type, and flared, among others), and size (trim, snug fit, regular, XL, XXL, and magnum).
Technically speaking, magnum condoms are wider or have bigger girth than regular condoms. It is about 15% bigger in girth (just more or less 1 cm) than regular condoms. By the word “girth,” this pertains to the measurement of the condom all around it (the perimeter). Because of this size, magnum condoms are obviously easier to fit in compared to regular condoms.

However, the majority of men using condoms would agree that using regular-sized condoms is more than enough, and that choosing the magnum counterpart is just like bragging indirectly at the cashier. In fact, regular condoms are stretchable enough that it can even fit your entire arm. This stretchability gives regular-sized condoms its snug or perfect fit that is just right for most men. And so, even if you seem to be “large” enough to warrant the use of a magnum condom, you should first try using the regular condom first because, most likely, it is just as good to go. Just shift to magnum when a regular-sized condom feels too tight as if it’s already constricting your organ.

Moreover, it has been estimated that only about 5% of the entire male population would actually need to use magnum condoms for the purpose of using a really larger-sized condom that won’t be too tight, painful, or uncomfortable once used. If the rest of the male population will use magnum condoms, chances are that they will have the condoms slip away and may accidentally leave them behind in their partner’s cavity during sexual intercourse.


1.Magnum condoms are wider or have a larger girth compared to regular condoms.
2.Magnum condoms are only for those who really have an exceptionally large organ.
3.The majority of condom users prefer using regular condoms, even if they have a large organ, because it often gives the perfect fit that won’t slide off during sexual intercourse.

  1. There IS a big difference (no pun intended). I’m almost 10′ long hard, not boasting just stating facts. With regular condoms, they would either break, or were so snug that my erection would disappear before ejaculation. Switched to magnum sized, and problem was solved.

    They do have a market.

  2. I have a friend who left out a pack of Magnums for people to see, left it on the floor so it’s visible.. Lol just sayin’, he’s a fat Laotian at about 5 feet tall, tragically small in that area. Are Magnums bigger? Yes. Anyone saying otherwise never tried both, they’re only guessing at it to boost their own egos. Magnums are bigger — if you are saying they’re all the same then you are assuming it so you can ego boost yourself. The irony…

  3. Ultra thin is always best! thanks sharing the benefits of magnum and regular though, really interesting 🙂 would be glad if you could visit: http://tinyurl.com/c59ynwb, thanks!

    1. WRONG – or I was just lucky as hell that the 9 guys I slept with in my 15 years of experience were blessed by a genie.

    2. A WOMAN (or equivalent) with little to no field testing with cock.

    3. A MORON with a half-baked, convoluted idea of the male psyche, with no actual proof.

    4. A COWARD who would not put their name on an article because they knew it was unfounded.

    • Found it funny how you’re a woman speaking on behalf of a guy lmao im 9” and don’t find a difference between regular and magnum condoms

  5. So, I want to keep this anonymous. With that in mind: I know how there’s a habit on the internet for men/boys to over-estimate their private size. But, fortunately/unfortunately, I might be a “rightful heir” to this unusually “coveted” label of having…
    *dramatic pause*

    …a big one…

    (Please keep reading if you haven’t also rolled your eyes out of your head yet… I promise this isn’t the typical male ego stroking post)

    So, I just wanted to share my personal thoughts and experiences on size, and condom size: I’m probably in the range of 6.5 to 7 inches long. And, I’m really not trying to brag as I’m keeping this anonymous so you will never really know who I am, so it doesn’t really benefit me much in writing all this. And, my story is this: being endowed with whatever I’ve been given, I’ve had all the compliments. Feels great, I will not lie. But, life goes on. And, there’s more to life than such a small thing (well.. you get what I mean..) That said, in being on the larger end, I wondered if it would be better in the future to get larger condoms. It kind of makes sense right? Now, after some hunting on condom-shack-dot-com or whatever… I stumbled upon a Condom shack has a “fitting”/size guide, which seems to fit the intuition: a little bigger one, a little bigger condom. And, after much debilitation and number crunching, the results were conclusive: It told me that I needed a large one (which sort or makes sense… Right?) And, its pretty tempting to give in to get a larger one: after all: it easily strokes the ego. Just imagine how flattering It would be to have your woman buy them for you. But, then she gets to the cash. And, cha-ching! You have a joint account and those dollar signs hurt the shared wallet a little more. Big condoms have a big premium. Now, for that premium, is it really worth it? After all, the regular ones fit, just like they tell you in sex-ed. And, personally, I can attest: I’ve used regular condoms forever despite being an outlier. I’ve never had a problem with a regular condom—surprise, They fit fine! Now, its not the same as completely naked sex, but, that’s obvious. With that said, there are articles saying that the condom size thing is all marketing! And, if you had a good sex-ed teacher, they’ll tell you it’s one size fits all… Just recall those days when that condom challenge went viral and you will see what I mean! Taken together, to be honest, for me, and I think I really can speak for everyone: its true, I think.

  6. My husband is about 6.5” but he also has a lot of girth. A regular condom would only go down half of his shaft and the tip was completely gone bc it was literally too snug. You are supposed to be able to have that little nub on the end to catch the boys if you get what I mean. So he bought magnums and they are tight, but fit perfectly, long enough to go all the way down, and they never slip off. So I really think girth matters more when it comes to the use of magnum condoms vs regular.
