What are the Sizes of Condoms?

Condoms have different shapes, styles, widths, lengths, strengths and sizes. Different manufacturers turn them out differently. There has not been any standard length specified for condoms but this is because its material is stretchable enough to fit a man’s erect penis. The variation in condoms’ length is also meant to serve some purposes. Those with smaller width give a closer fit while others are larger. For ensuring safety and pleasure, you need to buy a condom which fits you well.
