Condoms 'too big' for Indian men

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

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.
