Safe Sex Ringtone Helps Promote Use Of Condoms In India
August 20, 2008
Washington (ChattahBox) – A new ringtone has been released in India to try and spread the idea of safe sex by using a condom. The new ringtone sings out, “Condom, condom!,” trying to make talking about safe sex more comfortable for people in the country.
This new push from public health advocates is to make talking about condoms and safe sex a comfortable thing in India.
Over 2.5 million people in India are infected with HIV, and the fear is that number could grow.
This compares to 270 million people in India who use a cell phone, and use ringtones for them.
The new condom ringtone sings out the word condom at least 40 or so times, and has been downloaded 60,000 times thus far.
