Lifestyles Stimula condoms
With the advent of HIV and Aids in the 1980s, condoms had to be made more user-friendly and easier to buy, to encourage people to use them. Products such as Ansell’s Lifestyles range went on sale in New Zealand supermarkets in 1985. Before then, people had to buy condoms at chemist shops, where they sometimes felt embarrassed asking for them.
