The Myth Of The Magnums....Page 1 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
For those of you not familiar with Magnums, they are a 'large' condom made by Trojan. For weeks now I've seen men, usually black men, come in and ask for them over and over again.

I was beginning to think I was the last 6incher in the world...
That somehow in my sleep, men had evolved bigger, thicker, longer penises than my through-back to the dark ages.

Well a few nights ago we finally got a shipment of them and curiousity forced me to try one on. I admit, I was prepared to cry myself to sleep with spare inches of latex hanging from my underdeveloped sad excuss of manhood.

Imagine my suprise when I discovered that Trojan Magnums fit perfectly?!?!
There were no extra inches of latex hanging from me, nor rolled up unused at the base. The width was just right as to be snug and not loose at all. In fact they are even tappered at the end for a snugger fit at the base, where a lot of men tend to be narrower.

Upon reflection it makes perfect sense...
The only thing bigger about these condoms are their packaging!
How many would trojan sell if they could only be used by 10" porn stars?
Of course they fit average guys, that's where the money is!
Now average Joes can walk proudly into a store, lady at their side, and request "two boxes of Trojan Magnums please" to her amazement and perhaps excitement!

(just keep the lights off so the mood is prematurly spoiled guys)

You can pull a normal condom over your head and or up to your elbow without breaking. The Magnum is marketing genius.

Actually, go to the health clinic and pick up those crappy small ones they give out. Throw the wrapper away if it has size label. When your gal goes to put it on you to no avail. Just shrug and say, "Well, I guess it's just to big."

The magnums are not any longer than rugular condoms just wider to accomadate more girth.


Are they really? Cause I didn't find them to be any wider. It was still very snug on the hips as usual. And I honestly think they are shorter in the length department, because I can't roll some condoms all the way down (be gentle), but these I could.

My female co-workers got a good kick out my excitement this morning after having tried one on. I even teased them about carrying around the empty box in my pocket so that I could do this number...

"Hmmm, what's this in my pocket....oh my...it's my box of MAGNUMS....how on earth did that get there?"

^^^^

I was also trying to figure out why they are called Magnums in the first place and alll I can fathom is that they are taken from Tom Selleck's old show, Magnum P.I., PI of course standing for private investigator.....am I close?

Think .44 Magnum autoloader. One big f*cking gun. Makes a pinhole going in and a hole the size of a dinner plate going out.

I believe it's either greek or latin for large.

Yeah, they are bigger - if not bigger they are at least made looser. Kinda like socks. When you start out with 6 - 10 or 10 - 13 they all look pretty much the same, but try stretching out the 6-10 socks to fit your size 12 feet and see how comfortable they are.

I have had problems with condoms for years - the dang things would just keep coming off no matter what I tried. The last person I seriously dated went out and bought a box of Magnums (she kept trying to tell me I was bigger than normal but to this day I still don't believe it). We had a small somewhat animated discussion about how I wasn't putting the dang thing on because I couldn't keep the regular ones on so there was no way the bigger ones were going to stay on, and I was in no mood to be humiliated, etc, but I finally relented and tried it. To my amazement, not only did it fit comfotably, but I have not had one come off since. I'm not saying I'm bigger, but there is something different about them that makes them stay on better - at least for me. Apparently the regular ones were just too tight, and since Mr. Happy is rather tapered they just kept sliding down.

YMMV but they do make a difference for me.

God Bless Trojan for making condoms in different sizes. What would I do without Trojan Micros?

lady,

A sense of humor is far more sexy than any physical endowment.

Easy for you to say, when is the last time you laughed so hard you had an orgasm?

If my sense of humor takes you this far then the sight of little Timmy should finish the job.

So, did that discovery make your d1ck bigger? If not, why are you telling us? I personally don't give a shit that I don't need magnums, putting one on doesn't alter my anatomy and I can't really see how walking into a store and asking for them will make any differene to a woman who's actually going to see me with my pants off.

That whole post was priceless! I'm just tickled!

The dudes won't be able to do that with me...as I can't do latex...but I have a pretty funny story...

I am with my man and we are in the drug store picking up the one size fits all Avanti non-latex condoms that have reduced me to the Elaine technique of sponge worthiness fame, due to the prohibitive price. So without looking at any prices, signs etc...I grab the box and head to the lineup with Mr. Worthiness in tow. Much to my relief, as all we were buying was the condoms....there is a lovely old lady cashier, so I am thinking phew. When it's our turn we approach the cashier and place our purchase on the counter with the intent of paying and getting the f... out of there as we had things to do. So, doesn't the little old cashier lady kindly inform us that this particular product is on a buy two packanges get one free special...well always being a bit thrifty myself I replies well that's a pretty good deal...I guess we should take two more boxes then...and Mr. Worthiness does the old "Yes" with the bicep curling fisty thing and all ,right in front of all the waiting customers and the kindly old cashier lady...who couldn't help but smirk throughout the rest of the transaction while Mr. Worthiness beamed.

mc


God...that reminds me of one evening when I was in the local drugstore picking up some condoms and there weren't a LOT of people in line...but 4 or 5 as I plunked my merchandise on the counter this old guy working the register looked at me and practically yells.."Looks like SOMEBODY is gonna be havin' some FUN TONIGHT!!
I just nodded my head and smiled while he gave me that knowing look......

The word magnum was originally nothing more than a name for an extra large bottle of wine. Gun manufacturers later began to use it to describe cartridges that hold
more gunpowder. A 44 mag cartridge is actually pretty small except for the fact that it's mostly chambered in handguns, and as far as handgun cartridges go....it's pretty powerful for as old as it is.

I know what you're thinking.

"Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

You meet a girl at a bar.
"So yeah, I have a concealed weapon permit, you never know when you'll need protection in this part of town. But I don't carry a regular wimpy handgun, I need something bigger."

Then you pull out a Magnum.

wow I'm terrible

This is so exciting. I can't wait to run out and buy a box of magnums - what a relief. Oh, wait, what should I do with a condom and no girl. I guess I can protect myself from palmela handerson.

I found I used to have problems with the condoms breaking during the act, and I'd end up having to go through two or three at a time, and I also found them a wee bit uncomfortable. I haven't broken a Magnum yet, and they do feel a bit more natural (still snug enough to do the primary job, certainly not like wearing a sock down there).

That said, it's not unless you're using the XL that it's for excessive length. The regular Magnum simply accomodates a wider girth.

If you do have breakage issues, I'd recommend trying them, they might work a bit better for you. However, I don't think they come in all the fun ribbed variations of the regular ones.

Random_bird if he isn't a bf for a long long time after your condom story he's one stupid dude.

Trojan Magnums fit me like a glove (9 inches). They seem pretty durable too. They get my dollar.

Magnums do come in two sizes I believe, large and extra-large for men over 10"-!

I'm not gonna sit here and brag that I have a huge one. But I know that the normal condoms break very easily..The magnums and the XXLS offer more room for girth, not so much length. A long penis won't break a condom, but a thicker one will! Plus, magnums don't cut of circulation like the normal ones do!!
