Condom makers Durex sent the Internet users into a tizzy a couple of years ago when they "launched" Eggplant flavoured condoms only to reveal later that it was a publicity stunt by them to promote safe-sex among younger folks.
Now, in a campaign-- #HateCondoms that is already trending at #1 in India, the condom brand took to its Twitter page and asked one simple question-- Why don't Indians use condoms?
Soon enough, the tweet spread like wildfire on the site and Indian men came out with their own reasons for not using the contraception.
