Trojan fights STDs

Preventing personal infection

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

The word Trojan is more likely to conjure up thoughts of malware than making sweet, sweet love amongst IT folk this side of the pond but the US's biggest condom manufacturer is out to change that with a new campaign promoting safe sex.

Brighton cabbies are to hand out an impressive 60,000 TrojanTM contraceptives at part of a sexual health project dubbed Safe Ride Home due to kick off Thursday (11 August), the BBC reports. The scheme, which will operate only on Thursday and weekend nights, is being backed by well-known local pugilist Chris Eubank.

Passengers requesting a free prophylactic from Brighton-based Radio Cabs will also get a leaflet giving advice on preventing sexually transmitted diseases (as if they'll get time to read it before getting down to business). According to Trojan, one in nine people are infected by a sexually transmitted disease. It reckons young people take risks when caught short, so to speak.

Apart from a tenuous play on words there is no IT angle to this story. Normal service will be resumed after the end of the silly season. ®
