    'Extra Small' Condoms for 12-Year-Old Boys Go on Sale

    A leading condom manufacturer in Switzerland has created extra-small condoms for boys as young as 12 years old, the U.K.ís Daily Telegraph reported.

    The condom, called the Hotshot, was produced after family planning groups and the Swiss AIDS Federation campaigned to have the condoms made following several studies that showed adolescent boys were not using proper protection when engaging in intercourse.

    Part of me is thinking "well, better to be safe than sorry..." but the rest of me is screaming "WHAT ARE THEY THINKING?!" They don't have to market them to young boys...they could just make extra small condoms for anyone that needs them. LOL
    Lord, what kind of craziness will they come up with next??

    I agree. I know there are adult men out there that could use extra small condoms. Maybe that's who they're really meant for, but embarassment is causing them to say it's for young boys?? Okay, wishful thinking.

    The only thing I object to here is the damage done to the self esteem of the man bying it for himself.

    Some 12 year olds have sex. SOme 12 year old girls are already having periods. Therefore, it is possible that a sexually active 12 year old, even with a partner their own age, could conceive. I'll leave this up to researchers to confirm, bt I'm pretty sure that for most 12 year olds, a standard condom would not fit correctly. So market them where they are needed. I'm all for it. What's the issue?

    While I HATE this, I teach seventh graders--many of whom are 12. Currently, they are using Saran Wrap and a rubber band. I kid you not.

    Remember the old joke about the hubby shopping for wifey? "Price check on super-duper tampons, please."

    I have absolutely no personal experience with condoms, but isn't a proper "fit" vital to the effectiveness? I say size them like pantyhose so everyone can purchase the correct fit..... Oh my! I just got a mental picture of the sizing graph on the back of the package.

    Saran wrap .... geez!

    My sympathy to Mrs Adnoid.
