Following reports of the rising number of HIV infections among same-sex couples in India, a leading condom manufacturer is due to launch a gay condom.
A survey by the condom manufacturer's Family Planning Promotion Trust along with National AIDS Control Organisation (NACO) had found that gay couples experienced discomfort using conventional condoms, the Mid-Day reported.
"We are still in the process of developing the product. As far as the costing goes, we are still unsure if it must be sold in the socially marketed category or in genera one. However, this concern is secondary to product development," said an executive from the company's family planning trust told the paper.
It is also reported that the new condom will be called Spice Up.
