Let’s face it: Condoms are versatile. And

Infection Of Youth In Japan,” s*xual activity
among Japanese youth has increased since
2000, as have abortion rates in teenagers
and gonorrhea and chlamydia cases.

putting safe s*x on the tip of everyone’s
The book is available on Amazon Kindle (in
Japanese), at $2.99.
