How Thick is the Average Condom?

Condoms

Happy Friday! Just in time for the weekend, I’m wondering about how thick condoms are.

The Brunswick Centre, a charity that provides sexual health services based in the UK, sheds some light on this: Condoms are measured in microns. One micron is .01 mm (one/one-hundreth of a millimeter).

Their FAQ sheet on condoms breaks it down:

“An extra thin condom is around 4 microns thick, an average condom is around 7 microns thick and an extra thick condom is around 9 microns thick.”

Knowledge is power. Go forth and use it.
