Boy-sized condoms

Now here’s a clever marketing idea. It’s almost as clever as it is disturbing. Creative Minority Report writes:

A Swiss company is now marketing and selling small condoms to boys between 12 and 14 years of age. This is really disturbing. We cannot market cigarettes using a camel for fear of influence on children but marketing condoms to kids is just fine?

Is the best answer to promiscuity in younger and younger children to tailor make condoms just their size? I guess the theory is that if a kid is tall enough to put quarters in the condom vending machine in the gas station bathroom then he’s old enough to use them.
