Switzerland battles sexual promiscuity by distributing condoms to children

.- In response to an alarming increase in sexual promiscuity among children ages 10 – 14, the Swiss government has decided to begin distributing “extra-small” condoms.

A study by the Swiss government’s Federal Commission for Children and Youth has revealed a significant increase in the percentage of minors between the ages of 10 and 14 who have sexual relations "frequently" in comparison to the results of similar studies from the 1990s.

In “response,” the government has announced it will distribute smaller condoms under the brand “Hotshot.”

Swiss officials explained their decision citing research by the University of Basilea which says young people are exposed to sexually transmitted diseases due to the misuse of condoms.

Critics were quick to note that the promiscuity problems will not be solved by introducing smaller condoms but through changes in behavior. They point out that the university study also shows that “minors do not have adequate sexual information and do not understand the consequences of what they are doing.”
