Will that be Large or Extra Large Sir?
Apparently most condoms are too big for average Indian men. An extensive survey, including detailed measuring of penises, down to the milimetre has determined that the dumping of internationally sized condoms on the Indian market is not appropriate and that a wider range of sizes should be made available (discretely).
When I lived in Singapore, I met somebody who ran the Condom Shop on Orchard Road. She told me that nobody bought small or medium sized condoms and that XL outsold L by over three to one. It is hard to imagine men going in and asking for anything other than large and extra large.
In India with a very high HIV transmission rate, it is an important public health issue.
