Boys to get small condoms 男孩將可買到小保險套

An extra small condom for boys as young as 12 is going on sale in Switzerland.
一款供年紀最小12歲男孩使用的特小 號保險套,將在瑞士上市。
The condom is being produced because a study conducted in 2008 showed that 12 to 14-year-old boys did not protect themselves sufficiently when having sex.
