Custom-made condoms: even these are hard to fit

An analysis of data on sales of the first 1000 six-packs of a custom-fitted condom brand revealed only 13.4% of condoms bought matched the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) internationally recognised standard sizes.

Almost 80% of the condom packs bought online – selected from a choice of 95 sizes by using a printed ‘fit kit’ – fell outside the standard lengths.

Of these, 75% were shorter than the ASTM lower limit of 170mm
