These condoms are too damn big!

    NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Condoms designed to meet international size specifications are too big for many Indian men as their penises fall short of what manufacturers had anticipated, an Indian study has found.

    The Indian Council of Medical Research, a leading state-run center, said its initial findings from a two-year study showed 60 percent of men in the financial capital Mumbai had penises about 2.4 cm (one inch) shorter than those condoms catered for.

    For a further 30 percent, the difference was at least 5 cm (two inches). A poor fit meant the prophylactics often didn't do the job they were bought for, and led to some tearing or slipping off during use.

    "One of the reasons for a failure of up to 20 percent (of condoms) is the association of the size of the condom to the erect penis," the council's Dr. Chander Puri told Reuters, adding another reason was couples often put them on in a hurry.
    "We need more vending machines for condoms of different sizes so people can pick a condom with confidence that is suited to their needs," he said.

    Guess driving isn't the only thing NYC cabbies and town car drives lack confidence in.

    Thanks, Perry. Now I'll know where to travel to when it's time for a masculine ego boost. Mumbai, driver, Mumbai! ;)
