According to media reports Thailand’s Minister for Public Health has issued a plea to Thailand’s teenagers to use smaller condoms, the call came after he found that younger boys have been purchasing ill-fitting condoms in order to impress their friends. He said that by doing this they risk the spread of STD’s as the contraceptive devices would not serve their intended purpose if the wrong size is used. The spokesperson for the ministry Somchaichote Piyawatchwela said that oversized condoms can slip during use and this means they fail to do their job. Recent government figures show an increase in sexually transmitted disease in young people in Thailand.
