Residents of Norway were revolted by the provocative announcement for tourists placed in some points of the central station of Oslo. The Local with reference to the local edition Dagbladet reports about it. Advertizing of condoms has been created by employees of a supermarket 7-eleven.

Consequences can cause discomfort, irritation and in the worst cases to reduce birth rate" — Follstad has noted, having added what this disease does infected more susceptible to others venereal with diseases.
