I never heard anybody saying that girls can be too shallow... maybe it has some kind of other meaning in English, but for me a swimming pool can be shallow, but not a girl's *** :eh:

Terrible....

From a girl's side... the two locals I slept with weren't particularly bothered about condoms either. The first one apparently never used them, ever... not even for one-night stands O.O;;; the second one apparently used to use them (even though they were too small) but I wasn't a one-night stand, so he didn't think it mattered.... hmmm.

They both had the 'tw condoms are too small' problem. Actually, of all the local guys I've heard of or seen, there's only been one who actually fits XD

Not wanting to brag or nuthin but the evidence spoke for itself

...
Too small? I don't think that there is such a huge difference with white girls, if a baby can go through that way, you ll definitly have enough space


Ah, damn, I thought we were kicking off a willy-waving competition. I was going to come back with a comment about the size of my head. Now you ruined it all, djstout. Ruined it, I tell you.

tsukideynatsu, I imagine it's all just statistics. The condom company do all sorts of surveys to get their sizes to fit the maximum number of people, and apparently the mean in Asia is about 1 inch less than elsewhere (and you have to feel really sorry for Korean women ... check it out on the internet). But the standard deviation is about 1 inch too, so there's a hell of a lot of overlap. Bizarrely, the condom companies never measure girth, which is obviously what makes a condom feel uncomfortable. Length is pretty much irrelevant. That might also explain why Taiwanese men have the same experience as anyone else ... just bad design criteria from the manufacturers.

Tommy:

You need some serious education. Avoiding one night stands is very smart, but that is *not* how most diseases are transmitted. They are mostly transmitted ( unknowing by *both* parties ) in monogamous relationships. 1 in *four* women have something in most countries. 1 in seven men. Furthermore, even if I believed your line about testing partners, things like herpes and hpv are rarely tested for, as they are ubiquitous and for the most part asymptomatic. Condom use is still a good
idea, and extremely effective against HIV.

Avoiding one night stand is still a good way to get into hot water, if a girl can let you f*** her after one night only and without rubber (or condom), she probably did it before more than once. Anyway I don't like one night stand, it's like having microwave food, it taste bad, and it takes more time to really enjoy sex with someone, to my point of view.

The only surefire course of action is for all parties to the menage to get tested BEFORE having sex. Outside of that, you aint in the safety zone.

edit: and of course to be tested for every single little tiny bit of thing. And furthermore to abstain from sex until one has passed through six months (or more) of no sex so that any antibodies from hiv exposure can be tested for.

Aint fun if ya want to be safe. So while you are doing this you could risk it by doing it with condoms (make sure they are a trusted brand and proper size and all that smo).

I used to do the same, and while waiting for the result of the test, I was using condoms

You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life.

Condoms in Taiwan are too small? :ohreally: I just rolled one over the TV remote (big fat old 32cm one) and it went all the way over. Filled another one with 2 liters of water and dropped it and it still didn't burst.

So... Exactly how big do these "the condoms are too small" crowd claim to be? :liar:

Second of all, as in all honeymoons, all is well until it is not. It is until the unexpected happens that you will see all grievances surface -ask anyone in any relationship. The girl can chew with her mouth open, that if you love her, you do not care. If you do not lover her, if her pinkie toe is half an inch deviant, the relationship is doomed. - Icon
