Quote:
A survey of more than 1,000 men in India has concluded that condoms made according to international sizes are too large for a majority of Indian men.

The study found that more than half of the men measured had penises that were shorter than international standards for condoms.

It has led to a call for condoms of mixed sizes to be made more widely available in India.

The two-year study was carried out by the Indian Council of Medical Research.

Over 1,200 volunteers from the length and breadth of the country had their penises measured precisely, down to the last millimetre.

The scientists even checked their sample was representative of India as a whole in terms of class, religion and urban and rural dwellers.

The conclusion of all this scientific endeavour is that about 60% of Indian men have penises which are between three and five centimetres shorter than international standards used in condom manufacture.

Doctor Chander Puri, a specialist in reproductive health at the Indian Council of Medical Research, told the BBC there was an obvious need in India for custom-made condoms, as most of those currently on sale are too large.

The issue is serious because about one in every five times a condom is used in India it either falls off or tears, an extremely high failure rate.

And the country already has the highest number of HIV infections of any nation.

"from the length and breadth of the country" :lol:

Oh... I think in Australia (or was it Finland?) we got condoms for 12 year olds...

They are a bit small in size.

Make 'em child-friendly by printing "this side towards the vag" on one side.

I hate trying to roll them the wrong way.

HOWTO sez:
Quote:
To find which way the condom unrolls, hold it by the edges and gently blow into the center to inflate the reservoir tip.

Alternatively, a 50/50 chance sounds fine to me. Blowing into a condom makes me wilt faster than thinking of Mike Tyson :oops:

Wow, he wasn't even able to find his own previous post. Perhaps he'd like to take a visit to Fail.

Considering you have a number estimate, you probably just did search for your previous posts.

There *are* - God this is painful, you're supposed to be an Englishman.

Anyway, on to my joke - it's supposed to be the girth, not the length, that counts. Ask any 12yr Swiss.

no, the search only shows up 6,000. I think I was past that in 2005. About 18 months ago someone went through the SQL and we found out I had over 26,000 - the most of anyone
