Condometric - the condom that measures the size of your penis
November 26, 2008 Madrid-based on-line store Curiosite has come up with a product that will surely be one of the novelty hits of 2009. The Condometric is a condom with a measuring ruler printed on the side that will accurately determine the size of the wearer’s penis. Currently in manufacturing, the condom will be available in four flavours (lime, cherry, banana and prophylactic rubber), both metric and imperial measurements (centimetres and inches), and in packs of 3, 6 and 12 (the party pack?).
According to Curiosite, the Condometric prophylactic will be made of best quality natural rubber latex. They are fine, thin, smooth, ergonomic, with non-parallel sides, transparent, lubricated, with reservoir tip and nominal width of 54 mm (2.12 inches). The product will be sold via the internet, so spontaneity is kinda out the window.
Indeed, that’s all the information available right now, apart from the FAQs which tell us that it’s a single-use product and that the ink doesn’t rub off (though we guess it might be fun trying).
Sadly, the Condometric only measures to a penis length of 25 cm so we were unable to perform any product testing with any of Gizmag's regular writers.
About the Author
Mike grew up thinking he would become a mathematician, accidentally started motorcycle racing, got a job writing road tests for a motorcycle magazine while at university, and became a writer. As a travelling photojournalist during his early career, his work was published in a dozen languages across 20+ countries. He went on to edit or manage over 50 print publications, with target audiences ranging from pensioners to plumbers, many different sports, many car and motorcycle magazines, with many more in the fields of communication - narrow subject magazines on topics such as advertising, marketing, visual communications, design, presentation and direct marketing. Then came the internet and Mike managed internet projects for Australia's largest multimedia company, Telstra.com.au (Australia's largest Telco), Seek.com.au (Australia's largest employment site), top100.com.au, hitwise.com, and a dozen other internet start-ups before founding Gizmag in 2002. Now he writes and thinks.

If these guys had any sense, they would "adjust" the scale so that it more closely matches the aspirations of their target market. "See, honey, I TOLD you it was 8 inches!"
As it is, the only people who will purchase these will be magnificently well-endowed men, who frankly shouldn't need to measure, and incredibly snarky women, who frankly shouldn't be allowed to.
The classic line is that women can\'t accurately estimate distances because men keep on telling them this (thumb and forefinger 2 inches apart) is six inches.
Actually, If the lady you\'re with doesn\'t realize it\'s in centimeters, you might possibly get way with a \"little white lie\" (excuse the term \'Little\')
I think I'd prefer the old stretchable latex to boinking with non flexible ruler. If it does flex... then what's the point of markings.
