Where For Art Thou Romeo And Juliet?

The quest is on to prove that romance is alive and well in New Zealand with a nationwide search to find the country's most romantic couple.

All couples are invited to enter the Durex Avanti Search for New Zealand's Most Romantic Couple by writing or emailing Durex and explaining why they deserve this title.

"The stereotype is that New Zealanders are not passionate and that we are all too busy or too tired for love. We want to challenge this belief, so we're asking couples to share their inspirational stories of everyday romance with us," says Victoria Potter, Durex New Zealand Manager.

New Zealanders are the first in the Southern Hemisphere to be able to buy new, revolutionary Durex Avanti condoms in retail stores and the Durex Avanti Search for Romance coincides with the launch in this country.

"Durex Avanti condoms represent the most significant breakthrough in condom film technology in the last 60 years," says Victoria Potter. "They are made of Duron rather than latex and are super thin for ultimate sensitivity and a more natural feeling."

The technologically advanced qualities of Durex Avanti condoms mean that they are suitable for people who are allergic or sensitive to rubber latex. They are also safe to use with both oil and water-based lubricants.

Durex Avanti condoms took five years to develop and sales have consistently exceeded supply in the United States and the United Kingdom in recent years. Now it's New Zealand's turn to experience this technologically advanced condom.



To enter The Durex Avanti Search for Romance, couples must describe why they are New Zealand's Most Romantic Couple. Entry forms can be completed at participating pharmacies and retail outlets, by visiting http://www.durex.com/nz/index.html, or by emailing durex.nz@xtra.co.nz by 5pm 13 August 2001. All posted entries should be sent to PO Box 37-116, Parnell, Auckland.

The winners will experience a romantic weekend they'll never forget, spending two nights at the luxurious Ascott Metropolis Auckland, a photography session as a momento of their weekend and complimentary Durex Avanti condoms.
