Called the Hotshot, the condom has been produced after government research showed 12 to14-year-olds did not use sufficient protection when having sex.

Wow, crazy that kids this age are having sex, but since they are I'm glad there's a way for them to protect against pregnancy and STDs. Thanks Terry

Unfortunately, this is necessary. With teen pregnancy on the rise--yes, including twelve year olds--encouraging them to use protection if they do have sex is of utmost importance.

Taking condoms away doesn't take away hormones and peer pressure.

I wish that this wasn't necessary, but it is better for them to be safe.

Come on! Twelve years old!? How about teaching them to wait a little bit longer? I know that is unrealistic....but geez, 12 years old blows my mind! But better safe than sorry! Thanx, Lone

Health experts are breathing a sigh of relief, much needed by many men, a smaller condom is welcomed by the medical community. I know the hype about it being for 12 year olds but beliieve me, more much older men will be using it. The extra large had the same problem and are now getting a little relief with sized condoms. Sadly on size does not fit all here.

Th saye condoms are for 12 year olds, but there are a lot of men out there who could use them. I'm only saying this as a retired nurse. I've actually seen innies. I say that cause they're smaller than minis. LOL
