There is anxiety talking about the issue. Condoms 'too big' for Indian men By Damian Grammaticus BBC News, Delhi There is a "lack of awareness" over condom sizes A survey of more than 1, men in India has concluded that condoms made according to international sizes are too large for a majority of Indian men.
And the country already has the highest of HIV infections of any nation.
But there is a lack of awareness that different sizes are available. The issue is lookih because about one in every five times a condom is used in India it either falls off or tears, an extremely high failure rate.
And normally one feels shy to go to a chemist's shop and ask for a smaller size condom. The study found that more than half of the men measured had penises that were shorter than international standards for condoms.

The two-year study was carried out by the Indian Council of Medical Research. Over 1, volunteers from the length and breadth of the country had their penises measured precisely, down to the last millimetre.
It has led to a call for condoms of mixed sizes to be made more widely available in India. The scientists even checked their sample was representative of India as a whole in terms of class, religion and urban and rural dwellers.
