The second ad for Trojan brand condoms was run by the Fox television network. The ad was accompanied by the line, to help reduce the risk. This met Fox's criteria that the ad could only be aimed at promoting condoms for the prevention of STDs rather than contraception. Despite the fact that the US has the highest teenage pregnancy rate in the developed world, the network are still highly resistant to allowing condom ads.
