The best condom is the one that fits right, and for some guys a small condom, one that fits tighter or snugger, is going to be the best condom. Small condoms may be shorter, or narrower, or both. Because condoms are regulated country by country, the selection can be vastly different depending on where you live and where you shop. Not surprisingly, most condoms are sized in the middle, to catch the largest number of customers. In that category there are dozens of different brands. But when you're looking for larger condoms or small condoms the selection is less exciting (for example, there are no non-latex small condoms). Hopefully as the market grows so too will the selection. Here are the small condom brands available for sale in the U.S.
Beyond Seven (also sometimes found as Beyond 7) are a Japanese condom with a snugger fit. They are slightly longer than average (194 mm) but narrower (50 mm) and also thinner (.05 mm). The thinner latex, along with the extra latex that is usually still rolled up at the base (because they are longer) both make them good for a smaller fit, and also sometimes recommended for any man who has a micro penis. Beyond Seven are the only small condoms that are also thinner.
