Hi Dingo,

It's best to not use condoms with spermicide as spermicide may irritate your wife's tender bits. Check out the condom and lube links in my signature line. In the left hand column of either of those pages, there are additional links and some contain information your wife might find interesting.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

Hey dingo,
....
You may find trying a few different ones helpful......... try finding one that is comfortable for you .........i used to have real problems with them but eventually found one i was comfortable with and could get on with.... all condoms have to meet standards so no specific one will be better at stopping the transmission of HIV (as far as i am aware anyway)

best wishes

   I don't know which are best...   When I've used them it never really was for confort.   When I was a younger I was sold on them lifestyles super sensitive which was cool.    I can remember one time I bought a box and was breaking one every time I used them.   Here I thought, " Wow I must be really BIG"..  Think of my dismay when I learned that I had bought a box of expired condoms....  I still think I'm pretty big though, fuck the expiration date!!!!! >:(

That is a good question....I tend to buy the XL's because I want the person to have room. Has had complaints in the past that the condom was cutting off their circulation. I did buy a box of Magnums one time and this guy slid me a look like he might not be able to fit it.... Hell, I don't have a penis, how am I to know about fit? Gonna have to check out Ann's condom link......Too bad they don't make one size fits all....
