The French Men's Private Affair

According to a study done by the Germans, people living in France are saying they need the largest condoms next to the Greeks who need much smaller ones.

The study was done in Europe by the Singen-based Institute of Condom Consultancy over a period of eight months. The ICC asked 10,500 men in 25 different countries to take a tape measure and yes, measure their 'goods'. Then they needed to enter their 'private' information into some kind of database.

According to the study, French men need approximately six inch long condoms which is about 3cm longer than the Greeks; the Greeks seemed to be a bit more modest within the boundaries of the study.

The question is why exactly was this study done? It was aimed at educating young people about how important contraception is. But there is something even more fun and exciting these young people can look forward to. The ICC hosts an annual "Pimp Your Condom" which is a fair that educates teenagers about STD's.

The ICC's director, Jan Vinzenz Krause invented a spray on latex condom which fit on just like a normal condom. Unfortunately, the spray on condom was never fully developed.
