One Size Doesn't Fit All

Obviously, contraception whatever method you choose is going to be cheaper than the cost of raising unexpected offspring to adulthood but still normally, items marked as "one size fits all" come cheaper than a pack of decent rubbers do.

Ever wary of the safety of any product that was too bargain priced I did have one girlfriend that would only let me use one common brand name model that was thick, white and smelled like a rubber inner tube. However, most of us don't buy cheaply because with prophylactics it's not just their reliability but their fit, sensitivity and performance that counts. Most people of either gender prefer comfort and increased sensitivity to seeing a dick resemble an undercooked pork sausage and smelling like a tire fire regardless of price.

We've all seen the costly brands imported from Japan or marketed as "premium" not to mention that now one can buy large and even extra large sizes costing twice or even three times as much a normal box. However, according to Ananova (03/02/06), one enterprising German has that beat by several hundred dollars. Businessman Oliver Gothe, 36, has a Cologne-based company called Lebenslust (Lust for Life) that will create personalized condoms based on three-dimensional measurements of one's own penis.

"These condoms will fit so well you will hardly notice you are wearing one. We can make them wafer thin or fist thick and 'engrave' them with your signature wrapped around the base," Gothe claims.

The cost for these über sheaths is over $1000 US for a large but unspecified supply. At that price, the only thing left in your wallet will be that one of a kind "just in case" rubber and you're not going to want to waste it on just anyone unless he or she is willing to spring for half upfront.
