Dude, don't be dissing on planned parenthood... They do good.

Besides - Durex tends to be for well, shall we say, the smaller inclined?

/Hee hee... (at least in my experience)

Seriously though folks, imagine the sight the gyno would have on that large lady above. Did anybody see the last Viva la Bam where they were in europe and Bam was making the fat ass unkle dress up and he tore his shirt and his man boob was hanging out and he had all kinds of nasty skin tags on it? That was disgusting. I bet the chick above has that on the inside of her thighs and putang...

*shudder*

For the sake of the ladies' mental health, never use condoms.

:^)

birth control + a lesser condom = still no worries
 
2005-03-17 03:29:21 PM  
The bible doesn't say which kind of condoms are best...
 
2005-03-17 03:29:24 PM  
WOO HOO!! Finally something I don't have to worry about since I am not getting laid!!

Oh... Wait. Damn, nevermind...
 
2005-03-17 03:29:30 PM  
at first read, i thought the headline said "10 times more reliable"... and i was like "way to go counterfitters!!!"
 
2005-03-17 03:29:48 PM  
wjllope:

quite a bit of arguing about which condoms are the best to use... has anyone at least consulted the bible?

I checked. The bible doesn't mention anything about which condoms to use.

It did however have some nice hints as to which girls are easy.

Come on people, this happened in Ireland. It's obviously a catholic plot to discredit one of the most widely available forms of birth control.

What's a fake condom look like anyway? Your hand?
 
2005-03-17 03:32:15 PM  
The counterfeit condoms were tested and found to have more holes than the international standard allows.

I thought the standard was NO holes. Good to see I'm not the only one thinking this.

2005-03-17 03:39:27 PM  
isn't that what kill pills are for?

i can understand the issues of impregnating a woman, but if you play your cards right there's little chance. hell if you are that active and don't want kids, get snipped.

this country isn't all religous whacko controlled.

yet.

At my high school in the valley, the sex-ed teachers (who oddly only came around one afternoon a year) handed us an 'information kit'.

This kit consisted of numerous pamphlets, as well as a condom. They stapled the whole thing together.
 
2005-03-17 03:42:01 PM  
My GOD, Twitch OSX, that was just a smidge short of bannination-worthy.

Sounds an awful lot like sticking a diskette to one's desk with a big magnet.

For those of you who remember diskettes, that is.

There was this blonde woman at work who ran out of antifreeze windshield washer in her car, so she ran a large container of hot water out to her car in -30 below weather.

She figured the hot water would melt the ice from her windshield when she got off work in 8 hours.
 
2005-03-17 03:46:27 PM  
As the lovely Twitch OSX pointed out, condoms are for a lot more than stopping the preggies.
 
2005-03-17 03:47:45 PM

how many holes in a condom does the standard allow???????

WTF do you suppose was going through their minds as they ruined all the condoms? Maybe they just spaced out and forgot that you can't staple a condom if you want it to remail usable?

Why?

Probably the same thing that was going through the minds of the teachers of offered STAPLER REMOVERS to the students who wanted to break up the kits.

Given the long-term consequences of unplanned pregnancies and subsequent babies (or terminations, neither of which is easy), there is no way that 89% efficiency should be acceptable.

Unless, of course, unplanned pregnancy would fit into your life and your partner's life, as well. Child support for 18 years and the emotional well-being of a new person to deal with, or buy a different brand of condoms until they figure this stuff out? Hmmmmmmmm...

I agree w/ a previous poster who asked where the HELL that male birth control pill is. If there's one thing I learned in endocrinology class, it's that men are much simpler systems (reproductively) than women are, and stopping or detouring spermatogenesis should be supremely easy compared with farking with a woman's system to prevent pregnancy.

Please pardon my run-on sentences.
 
2005-03-17 04:01:37 PM  
I'm no Ronny J, but durex is too small. Now you can put any condom over your fist, so anyone could shoe-horn into one but it is like wrapping a rubber band around the base of your johnson. I just use a roll of plastic wrap. 75yrds for like $1.50
Back on topic. If these condoms are from china (as most bootleg shiat is), is that why there are so many people in china?
 
2005-03-17 04:03:45 PM  
I read in the bbc report that the counterfeit ones smell more "rubbery", but, coming from china, maybe they actually said that they smell "lovely"....

fark everyone else, as long as you post within the guidelines and it's funny who gives a rats ass if some people complain? someone once said that if you make everyone happy as an entertainer you've done something wrong.

Twitch OSX: I bet the chick above has that on the inside of her thighs and putang...

I don't see why. Skin tags have no correlation to obesity that I am aware of.

CravenMorehead: Are they 10 times more unreliable or are they 1/10 as reliable?

10 times more unreliable. Say a real Durex fails 3 in 100 times. That would mean a counterfeit Durex fails 30 in 100 times. Or, the former has a 97% reliability level, while the latter has only a 70% reliability level (70% obviously isn't 1/10 of 97%).

It's just a statistical way of maker things sound worse than they are -- "10 times more unreliable" sounds far worse than "fails 25% more often".

Consider sleeping with less filthy women, for a long term solution to your fears.

So far, everyone single study I've heard of that tests male birth control pills, and there have been a few, results in a very noticable loss of sex drive. I guess the hormones are just not as easy to mess with without side effects that render is useless.

They probably knew that no high school kid was going to use a free condom given to every student in health class for the purpose of farkin'.

Staple-holes have the additional benefit of making the condoms unsuitable for impromptu water balloon fights in the school hallways.

where the HELL that male birth control pill is

It's a small plastic device with a button and a speaker. When the button is pressed the speaker emits the sound of an infant crying loudly.

I do. Not only do they let me keep pounding that sweet, sweet pussy for more than five minutes, but my mother was on the pill when she had me, and I want a little extra protection for my wife and me, since my wife's on the pill as well.
