On World AIDS Day, condom maker calls for safe-sex emoticon

An activist holds a banner as others march through Pattaya resort town to raise awareness on the World Aids Day in Pattaya, east of BangkokCondom maker Durex says so and is presenting a formal submission on Wednesday, World AIDS Day, to get emoticon maker Unicode to adopt one. In the run-up to the day – designed to unite people around the world in the fight against HIV/AIDS – Durex launched a social media campaign last month "to create the first official safe-sex emoji", asking users to use #condomemoji. In an age of smartphones and tablets, emoticons, the small icons that are used to express emotions or physical things, are "crucial" to how young couples communicate, Durex said.
