Well, you can blame it on Oprah. Recently she did a show on bra sizes and how many women weren't wearing the right size. Ask any guy and they'd say to you...who cares. So, guys this one's for you. How do you choose the proper condom? Does it really make a difference and do you think it matters?
Despite all the puppy dog looks and the single guys complaining that they just don't "get any", it is estimated that 5,000,000,000 condoms are used every year worldwide. Somebody's getting some. Perhaps your problem isn't getting it...its finding it; the right condom that is. Well, it stands to reason why you may be having a hard time picking the right one. There are over 100 different brands of condoms on the market.
The reason to use one is simple, condoms are the only form of protection that can be used to help stop the transmission of STDs and prevent pregnancy. The thing to keep in mind is that about 99% are made of latex. Latex can not be used with oil based lubricants like Vaseline or cold creams because they break down the latex. There are also condoms that are made of lamb intestines or polyurethane for those that have an allergic reaction to latex.

The cool thing about condoms is that like bra's they come in different shapes and sizes and colors. But, unlike the bra, you can even get your condoms flavored. There's regular shaped, form fitting, and flared. Ribbed condoms provide a little extra ribbing or bumps that increase the sensation when used.
Who knew shopping for condoms could be so much fun. Of course the type of condom that you use is totally up to you. The important thing is to buy them and use them. Here's another interesting fact: Women purchase around 60% of the condoms. Maybe that number would be higher for guys if they had to go to the child support office?!
The advantages of using a condom include of course they help prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections, it's a perfect birth control for men, you can buy them easy and cheap without the need for a prescription, there's no side effects, they are easy to use and does not affect your ability to re-produce at a later day and time. Not only that, your average condom can hold about 4 quarts of milk...that's a lot of dairy!
Now that sounds like a fun game...take your partner out condom shopping and try many different brands and styles. Tell them it's all in the interest of science.
