Myth №3 - «Condoms are only two size- large and small ..."

It's a delusion! They are divided into three groups: the width of 48-50 mm, 51-53 mm and 54-56 mm. Regular condom 18-20 cm long.

Myth №10 - «The virus size is much smaller than the pores of latex ...»

The virus may exist only in the liquid droplet! Therefore, you need to understand the physics, through which the water does not seep through the condom. Certainly, the pores are actually HO! The condom is not made of a latex layer, and pores in each layer are shifted relative to each other. And there are at least 50 layers.

Therefore:
- At such sizes intermolecular interactions (? Or surface tension) does not allow the water to flow
- The water does not seep through the condom
- The virus can exist only in the liquid droplet!
