Swedes to put Durex condoms to the test

Men and women in Sweden looking for employment and wanting to do their bit for safe sex may be interested in an unusual position offered by Durex condoms.

The Swedish branch of the manufacturer is on the look-out for 1,000 guys and girls to act as testers for their prophylactic products, the Local reports.

Those wishing to apply need to be aged between 18 and 30 and have the desire to help improve the items on offer from the condom maker.

An advert released by Durex stated: "We offer flexible working hours, a hard but satisfying job, no uniform or training needed and you can come when you want - but preferably not prematurely."

Claus Albertsen, category marketing manager at the firm, said that while the promotional campaign may be tongue-in-cheek, the aim of the job creations is very serious.

The news comes as the Durex CSD500 condom range - promising to give males a bigger and firmer erection - has been recommended for European approval.
