Nycondoms Sometimes a statistic is worth a thousand words.

Case in point: New York City gave away 5 million condoms in the first month after introducing the city's "official" condom.

To put that number in context, as of September 1, 2005, the Census Bureau reported that 3.1 million men age 14 and older lived in the city. Besides libido, what's driving this demand?

Probably snappy slogans like "New York, we've got you covered" and a nifty Web site, which tells individuals and businesses how they can access the free condoms. The URL: nyccondom.org.
