Advertising Condoms Before The Watershed

The Teenage Pregnancy Independent Advisory Group has handed their annual report to the British government and among the many pieces of advice contained in it, they recommend altering broadcasting standards so that “positive sexual health messages, including the advertising of condoms, are communicated effectively before the 9pm broadcast watershed”. Guess which headline the papers ran with.

People writing news stories; as good scare mongering as it is, this still doesn’t mean you’re going to see adverts for condom’s before Blue Peter. Also, people writing government reports, you think the young people needing to use condoms are going to stop watching TV at 9pm?
