Condoms 'too big' for Indian men - Condoms: 9 Interesting Facts That You Never Know

In 2006, a study on penis size done by the Indian Council of Medical Research made headlines. Discovered that approximately 60 percent of surveyed Indian men had penises several centimeters shorter than the standard used in producing condoms. This disparity led to a high rate of failure, with condom tearing or falling off about 20 percent of the time, a serious issue given the prevalence of AIDS. This problem is hardly confined to India. In 2015, Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health made the announcement that sexually transmitted diseases among the country’s youth had increased nearly fivefold in a decade.
