Every year, the 13th of February is observed as the International Condom Day with an aim to increase awareness regarding the need for condoms as a contraceptive method. However, time and again, the importance of using condoms while having sexual intercourse is chucked aside, given the fact that ‘sex’ even in the 21st century is still considered a 'hush-hush' topic hence increasing the rate of unwanted pregnancies, STIs and STDs.
At 1.2 billion people and counting, the population of India clearly suggests that the general masses are not using condoms while having sexual intercourse. These findings have also been substantiated by Durex India, a condom producing company whose study finds that almost 95% of Indian men don’t use condoms, making us question, why?
A study conducted by Durex India, 2018 gives you the answer as to why Indian men hate using condoms:

Because your condom ads are so awkward to watch when they should be educational. Condom companies really need to rethink their ads. It is themselves they are hurting.

While many think the lack of sex eduaction is the primary reason for not using condoms, some blame the issue on the society for considering the talk of open sex-talks and its related topic a taboo. What is your answer, why do you think Indian men despise using condoms?
