Condom manufacturer Durex is looking for test pilots of its products, and says New Zealanders were chosen because they are among the most sexually active and adventurous in the world.

There is just one small hitch: it's testing. This means that some will fail.

Mmmh - I live in Auckland NZ, and sounds interesting, (not that I need condoms) but I followed the link & it just another marketing promo from Durex.

Went to 'Big Boys Toys' show recently in Auckland (cars, consoles and & motorbikes, not what you are thinking) and Durex where there handing out condoms for free as well. Funnest thing I saw was a little boy about 5 carting a blown up alien balloon walking up and sticking out his hand for more freebies.. when the hostess declined him he then looked puzzled & asked her what they were.. she recommended that he ask his parents ;-)

They're condoms. Some will fail.

Sure, but experimental condoms can probably be expected to fail more often.

Who knows, they might even fail more spectacularly, such as a nuclear meltdown!
