Is New York City Handing Out Weak Condoms?

Email a Friend

Mayoral candidate Christine Quinn has questioned the quality of the free condoms handed out by New York City -- she says she's heard complaints that they are weak, and too small for many users (the condoms only come in one size). At last night's Republican debate, John Catsimatidis said that “I think we should buy the strongest condoms that we can get.” Sexual health writer and expert Martha Kempner discusses how condom quality can vary, and fact-checks the candidates claims.
