Entrepreneur to condom experts: Size matters

October 12, 2007


— As the world's top condom experts convene this week to update international standards, one American entrepreneur has a simple message: Size matters.

It's shaking up an industry that has generally taken a one-size-fits-all approach.

Frank Sadlo, founder of TheyFit, which makes what he claims are the world's first custom-fit condoms, is pushing for updated standards to allow greater variation in condom size.

It's not just about well-endowed men in cramped prophylactic quarters, Sadlo told a meeting Thursday of delegates from 21 countries under the Geneva-based International Organization for Standardization.

When given a choice, he said many men prefer condoms smaller than the standard minimum 6.3 inches long, with more than half ordering those less than 5.12 inches.

"Do you have this in a smaller size?" ... That's gotta be embarrassing.

Wonder if they made condoms for different sizes, i.e. other than one size and magnum, if more men would be willing to wear them? Not by any means saying that most men don't wear them because I would not know that lol :)

In order to get most men to wear condoms, you would have to add video game sound effects.
