Condoms

Sales of Durex condoms jump about 20 percent, the equivalent of about 180,000 condoms, during the two weeks surrounding Valentine's Day. The biggest sales spike comes on New Year's Eve, followed by...July 4. (Go figure.)

Editor's note: This slide incorrectly stated the parent company of Durex. It is Reckitt Benckiser.
