TORONTO - The city of Toronto now has its own customized condoms.

The condoms in round city-branded wrappers feature a selection of designs, including some with a Pan Am Games theme.

All of them bear the logo "condomTO" and one version of the wrappers says "LET THE GAMES BEGIN."

Toronto Public Health says it hopes the snazzy packaging will help reinvigorate condom use and help promote safer sex in the city.

It's the second year in a row that the city has designed its own condom wrappers, following similar initiatives in other North American cities.

The condoms will be available for free at a number of locations, including visitor information centres, sexual-health clinics and some public-health partner agencies.
