SELLING CONDOMS

 

Sir, - CIE is often unjustly criticised, but its trial of selling condoms is wrong.

In pubs condom machines so far form the basis of adult, but not of child prostitution. In railway stations it is different. Children attract no attention in stations. Some trains have almost exclusively children.

On machine advertising either favours promiscuity in most cases, or sometimes maximum promiscuity cartoons are used. Since condoms, prostitution in Dublin has increased more than 10 fold. The youngest child in prostitution we've come across in Dublin as yet was a girl of five.

A condom seller has problems. If the people out there are faithful on trips, whether abroad or to the pub, you lose money. That is why the last Soviet health minister refused to allow a condom, campaign.

Equally, the bar on sex with children loses you money. That is why Britain's top condom organisation's chief, C. Brook, called for paedophilia (child molesting) to be completely legalised in 1973. Holland has legalised over 50 per cent of paedophilia.

Condom houses are currently spending about £500 per month in Dublin alone on prostitution and related media which also advertise paedophilia material and show women in pro rape poses.

Value free sexuality causes most women to be polled as fearing public transport after dark. It favours drug abuse, as indeed on the DART as a pushers' location among school kids. Last November a teen got condoms from a machine, and then died front drug abuse at a former CIE depot. And before the condom campaign we had the EC's lowest sexual AIDS rate. - Yours, etc.,
