NEW STUDY: Gay Men With Larger Penises Less Likely To Use Condoms
just-issued study, gay men who have a large penis are less likely to use a condom.
The study, "Self-reported penis size and experiences with condoms among gay and bisexual men" will be published in the February 2013 issue of Archives of Sexual Behavior. It used data collected from men who have sex with men by Hunter College’s Center for HIV Educational Studies and Training (CHEST) at large scale community events in New York. The findings suggest that the distribution of "one-size fits all" condoms on the gay scene may well be counterproductive. The findings showed that close to half of men reported condom slippage during sex. Almost one third reported condom breakage in the past three months Some men said they had unprotected sex because they couldn’t find condoms that fit. A minority of 40% did report that they didn’t have a problem finding condoms to suit their penis length or girth.
