Gay men 'need to find condoms that fit'

Gay men should take the time to find condoms that are appropriate to the size of their penis.

This is the suggestion of new research to be published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior, which found correlation between penis size and safe sex among gay and bisexual men, Pink News reports.

Investigators from Hunter College's Center for HIV Educational Studies and Training (Chest) indicated a one-size-fits-all approach may not be beneficial for gay men, as it was discovered that men with larger genitals are less likely to wear condoms.

According to the findings, almost half the men looked at in the study reported slippage of the products during sex, while nearly one-third experienced condom breakage in the past three months.

Dr Jeffrey Parsons, director of Chest, said: "Studies like this allow us to better understand sexual health and risk so that we can address effectively the health needs of gay and bisexual men."
