D.C. Officials Approve Request From Youths for Bigger Condoms

WASHINGTON -- District of Columbia officials are granting a request from high school and college-age students and will offer bigger condoms.

Students had complained the free condoms in schools and other locations from the city's HIV/AIDS administration were of poor quality and too small.

Really, it's about the brand. In a survey, youth said they felt Trojan brand condoms were of better quality and that the Durex condoms offered by the city were most likely to "pop or break." Consumer Reports says both brands have perfect scores.

The head of the HIV/AIDS administration says they want to promote that condom use is healthy in the district where studies show 3 percent of residents have HIV. So they'll spend extra money to offer Trojans in bulk, including the super-size variety.
