New Condoms From Trojan to Help Extend Love-Making, Accommodate Larger Men; First Climax Control Condom and Largest Condom on the Market Launch

Apr 03, 2001, 01:00 ET from Carter-Wallace, Inc.

    NEW YORK, April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- There are no more excuses for practicing
 unsafe sex with the introduction of condoms that answer consumer needs by
 extending the sexual experience for couples or fitting larger-sized men.
     Launching (in May) is the first climax control condom, Trojan Extended
 Pleasure(TM), designed to help extend the love-making experience.  This new
 condom will not only help all sexually active couples enjoy a longer sexual
 experience, but also can benefit the nearly 30 percent of couples who identify
 premature ejaculation as the most common sexual problem.  At the same time,
 the new Trojan(R) Magnum(R) XL Extra Large condom marks the largest available
 on the market, designed to meet the demand of nearly 7.3 million males --
 about 6 percent -- who require an extra large condom.
     "Our goal when designing condoms is to encourage safer sex practices by
 helping to make the sexual experience as enjoyable as possible, and with the
 new Trojan Extended Pleasure condoms, we hope to help couples make that
 experience last even longer," says Richard Kline, vice president of marketing
 for Carter Products, division of Carter-Wallace, Inc. (NYSE:   CAR), the makers
 of Trojan brand condoms.  "We are continuously working to develop new
 technologies that enable us to manufacture condoms that not only provide a
 variety of safer sex options, but also can address common sexual problems,
 such as premature ejaculation."
     Unlike any other latex condom on the market, new Trojan Extended Pleasure
 are created with a climax control lubricant inside the condom's tip to help
 prolong sexual excitement.  They are lubricated on the outside for additional
 sexual comfort, and have a special reservoir tip for extra safety.
     Trojan Magnum XL Extra Large condoms signify a major industry advancement,
 as they offer increased size and comfort to a group of men who have not been
 able to use condoms in the past.  The condoms are 30 percent larger by volume
 than regular condoms and are even larger than the original Trojan(R) Magnum(R)
 condom.
     "It is important that everyone have safer sex options, but for a
 significant population of men, available latex condoms have not provided an
 option.  According to our research, the new Trojan Magnum XL Extra Large
 condoms address that need," says Kline.
     The Trojan Magnum XL Extra Large condom will be available in boxes of 12
 for a suggested retail price of $7.99, and Trojan Extended Pleasure condoms
 will be available in boxes of 12 for a suggested retail price of $8.49.  Both
 condoms are made from premium quality latex, and like all Trojan brand
 products, the new condoms are triple-tested and made in the United States to
 ensure Trojan brand quality.  Log onto www.trojancondoms.com or call
 1-800-4TROJAN beginning in May 2001, to order a free sample of the new condoms
 and to learn more about all Trojan brand products.
     Trojan(R) brand condoms, America's #1 most trusted condom brand for over
 80 years, are produced by Carter Products, a division of Carter-Wallace, Inc.,
 a publicly held company headquartered in New York, N.Y.
