Boston public schools pull donated condoms with controversial messages

Boston Public Schools officials said the condoms donated from the state will be replaced.

Residents of Greenpoint, Brooklyn, reported the lowest condom use in the five boroughs, according to a recent Heath Department survey. The Boston Public Schools said it would replace the controversial condoms.

Controversial messages have led Boston public schools to pull tens of thousands of donated condoms after parents complained about inappropriate messages on the wrappers.

The 40,000 condoms donated by the state Department of Public Health were wrapped in packaging that included messages like "One lucky lady," "hump one" and "tasty one," according to the Globe. They also featured the image of a shark preying on a smaller fish.

A spokesman for the school system said officials are replacing the condoms with a new supply from the Boston Public Health Commission.
