Rapper promotes safe sex with Condom Style song

A US rapper is doing his bit to encourage greater condom use by releasing a reworking of a popular song.

Cassidy appears keen to spread the message of safe sex after recording a rendition of Psy's Gangnam Style, but altering the title and emphasis of the hit to Condom Style, Digital Spy reports.

It is hoped the release will promote the benefits of condoms - which can prevent unwanted pregnancies and the spread of sexually-transmitted infections - to a wide audience.

Cassidy has altered the lyrics for his rendition of the hit, pointing out there are numerous diseases to be caught through unprotected sex and urging people to avoid the temptation to engage in unprotected sexual acts.

He sings: "So whenever you about to jump it off, I need you to keep this in mind - stroke 'em condom style."

The record could prove a hit with young people, especially as the original Gangnam Style has become the most-watched YouTube video of all time.
