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

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

Swirzerland leads the way................?

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/he...itzerland.html

Called the Hotshot, the condom has been produced after government research showed 12 to14-year-olds did not use sufficient protection when having sex.


The study, conducted on behalf of the Federal Commission for Children and Youth, interviewed 1,480 people aged 10 to 20.

It showed more 12 to 14-year-olds were having sex, in comparison with the 1990s.


Family planning groups and the Swiss Aids Federation campaigned to have the Hotshot produced after a number of studies, including the government study researched at the Centre for Development and Personality Psychology at Basel University.

You're not going to speak to them till they're 25?

(or did you mean "convent")

My Lating is a bit rusty, but I believe "convent" means "come together"...

Imagine that you are a boy. You go to a pharmacy. It is full of people. You ask for condoms and the sales person points you to the extra small section.

Would there be anything worse in a boy's life?

It is a training condom, much like training bras for girls (do they even still have such things?)
