Re; Holes in Condoms

Jan 4, 2008

Can I add that nitrogen and oxygen gases are possibly a thousand times smaller than an HIV virus particle. Any 'tiny hole' in a condom, that is big enough to allow the virus to pass, would also prevent condoms from being inflated and decorating the walls at the New Years Party. Happy New Year all you Worried Wells!

Response from Dr. Frascino


Excellent and very logical point!

Happy New Year!

Dr. Bob
