Sized To Fit

At an international convention of condom manufacturers, industry leaders are discussing the problem of poor-fitting rubbers, which can result in unwanted pregnancies or disease transmission. The old one-size-fits-all standard of the past has been increasingly dismissed, with several larger sizes available for years, although little attention has been paid to men who need a smaller fit.

In 2003, TheyFit Condoms debuted a custom-fit line in 55 sizes in the United States, although the line was withdrawn last year as the company prepares to upgrade to 95 sizes. The goal of this year's conference is to set international standards, rather than seeking approval in each country.
