Condoms for 12-year-olds hit shelves
Swiss make extra small condoms for boys
By QMI AGENCY

A company in Switzerland is cashing in on the country's high rate of youth sex by making extra-small condoms.

A Federal Commission for Children and Youth, which surveyed 1,480 people aged 10 to 20, found that more 12- to 14-year-olds are having sex now than in the '90s, and that many don't use protection.

Meanwhile, in a German survey of 12,970 13- to 20-year-olds, a quarter of respondents said a standard condom is too large.

That's where the Hotshot comes in. While a standard condom is 5.2 centimetres in diameter, the Hotshot is 4.5 cm. The length is the standard 19 cm.

Switzerland's age of consent is 16, but if the age difference isn't more than three years, there will be no punishment.

Manufacturer Lamprecht AG is producing the condoms.

"At the moment we are only producing the Hotshot in Switzerland. But the UK is certainly a very attractive market since there is a very high rate of underage conception. The UK would definitely be top priority if we marketed abroad,² company spokesman Nysse Norballe told the UK Telegraph.

The mini-condoms will be sold over the counter, online, and distributed to young people via sex educationalists.

I think this will reduce condom use. No male is ever going to want to be seen buying extra small condoms, no matter his age.



"Now, a fun game should always be easy to understand - you should be able to take one look at it and know what you have to do straight away. It should be so well constructed that you can tell at a glance what your goal is and, even if you don’t succeed, you’ll blame yourself rather than the game. Moreover, the people standing around watching the game have also got to be able to enjoy it." - Shiggy

so condoms are going to be sold in a "junior" size now?

that's kind of.. sick. 12 year olds should be playing their videogames instead of taking interest in the opposite sex, gawd.

I think that's the average age kids are doing things now. I mean my little sister has a friend who is 13 or so who has had like 3 or 4 abortions.

Video games are too dangerous for kids. Sex is safer.

Yeah I agree, and I'm sure the government do to, but you know what teenagers are like. At least they have made some sort of precaution, not that I think this will take off.

 

Personally I think laws should be tighter on this, perhaps parents getting a hefty fine if their child falls preggers, then again sometimes it's out of their control ... it's a messy situation is teen pregnancy ..



 

I think it's a great idea.
I always find standard condom sizes too large.
