Same here. Back in my day as a 12 year old, we would just hold hands with our boyfriends, get a peck on the cheek and write "Roses are red" poems to each other. The more "out there" girls would French-kiss boys but that was it.
maybe it's because, I'm mexican but at 12 , I was already kinda thinking bout sex. Although in somewhat of a very naive and weird way.

I was too (and I'm not Mexican - I don't think that has anything to do with it!). I don't think it's unusual for kids to think about sex at that age, but there is a huge leap between thinking about it and doing it.

Extra small condoms for 12 year-old boys go on sale in Switzerland
a) as others have pointed out, it's old news
b) they're on sale in other countries as well (bought some by mistake in Spain )

I thought I'd bought some by mistake too, but turned out those were the regular size.

Re: Extra small condoms for 12 year-old boys go on sale in Switzerland

Is this not just good marketing for men less endowed?

Which sounds better?

"Excuse me, could you tell me where the young adolescent condoms are located? I need to buy some for my son"

or

"Excuse me, could you tell me where the extra small condoms are located?"

How did they find out 12 year olds have extra small packages? Who was analysing it?!

Re: Extra small condoms for 12 year-old boys go on sale in Switzerland

I dont know what the big fuss is about all this, its actually a good thing for kids to start early. So by the time they are 18, of legal age, they exactly know what they are doing and move on with their lives to higher grounds and become drug addicts and bankers etc.

I mean how else would you get 16 year old prostitutes in this country and the complexity of getting it judicialised. Lawyers need to earn a living too!

Re: Extra small condoms for 12 year-old boys go on sale in Switzerland

just stumbled upon the news that started this thread and then on this thread and couldn't stop reading the whole thread out.
on a side note, wouldn't the marketing help if instead of 'pr!x' they had something else here : http://www.flickr.com/photos/10554806@N05/2246159913//

"Yes" if there are, "No" if there are not, "Don't know" if you don't know.

Interesting...i didn't realise that part of a man's anatomy had a growth spurt.

I always assumed it just sort of was, like the head. Well you live and learn.

Both, because they both can't work in the same time!
