There appears to be a movement toward custom sizing condoms in the hope of increasing their effectiveness in preventing both pregnancy and STDs.

A few of the brands are offering 3 sizes now but a new company is hoping to go high tech with a kit that can be downloaded to do a detailed measurement of the penis to be sheathed so that a condom sized exactly in terms of length and girth can be provided.

The stated goal is to prevent condom ruptures from too tight a fit or the opposite problem of the condom slipping off because it was too large.

This company's web site is not in actual operation yet but you might want to check it out at http://www.theyfit.com/. You can find other sites for shopping or information by doing a google or lycos search on "condom size".
