NEW Zealand's prowess may lag that of Australia in most sporting pursuits but condom-maker Durex says it chose Kiwis to test its products because they are sexual champs.
Durex said New Zealanders were chosen to test-pilot their wares because they were among the most sexually active and adventurous in the world.
"Kiwis have proven they're a sexually energetic bunch, and therefore it makes sense that a select few will have the chance to try our latest condom innovation, all in the name of research,'' Durex NZ manager Victoria Potter said.
"Durex wants to ensure that its condoms are best meeting the needs of New Zealanders, from delivering on sexual pleasure, to keeping them safe.''
