FDA now backs smaller condoms because standard size is too big for US men (Details)

According to recent CDC numbers on condom use, only a third of single men revealed they use condoms the last time they had sex. One of the most common reasons for why guys don’t use them was because they ‘slip off.’

The Food and Drug Administration used to classify condoms as Class II medical devices. However, this recently changed because they found out that the average erect penis is more than an inch shorter. A study of 1661 sexually men showed that the average erect penis was 5.57 inches in length.

Since then, they have changed their policy to allow companies to make different size condoms.

This allowed a company, ONE Condoms, to fix that problem for guys, this company has been lobbying for this change for more than seven years.


They have launched myONE Perfect Fit, which is a line of bespoke (made to order) condoms that offer 60 different sizes, ranging from 4.9 to 9.4 inches in length and from 3.5 to 5.0 inches in width.

In a statement, Davin Wedel, the president of One Condoms, stated, “After years of dedication and hard work, we are thrilled to announce a condom that will finally address complaints about fit. You might be able to squeeze your large hands into a size-small glove, but that doesn’t mean it will be comfortable to wear.”

To avoid size shaming, the company made a sizing template that doesn’t include inches or centimeters but random letter and numbers.

Standard condoms have a length between 6.7 and 8.3 inches long and about 3.9 to 4.5 inches in circumference.




Data collected by ONE Condoms revealed that condoms only fit 12 percent of men.

According to their website, 93% of the myONE Perfect Fit condoms reveal that they are more likely to use condoms and their reviews have been overwhelmingly positive.

To buy these condoms, men have to measure themselves and print a measuring kit from their website.
