Of course they are. Why would anyone want to buy an old condom?
2002-10-17 07:59:10 PM  
Sounds like sales ain't the only thing that's rising quickly.
2002-10-17 08:41:59 PM  
Sure beats Novicane shots. Or slamming it in a sock drawer.
2002-10-17 08:43:24 PM

Check the bottom of the page for the Mad Cow disease story.

Look at the gril in the pic.

I'm sorry to say but : "I'd still hit it"
2002-10-17 08:46:47 PM  
These new "Pokermon" collectible trading condoms are all the rage.
2002-10-17 08:47:27 PM  
Does this mean no more "copier quickies" at work?
2002-10-17 08:47:37 PM  
"your soaking in it"
2002-10-17 08:47:43 PM  
If you scroll down to the other headlines at the bottom of the page:

• Any drinking and pregnancy don't mix, study shows

wow... really?
2002-10-17 08:47:59 PM  
Possible ad tag line?

New Durex condoms with benzocaine - eradicating the two-pump-chump one condom at a time!
2002-10-17 08:49:39 PM  
Hmm... I wonder if there are any long lasting side effects caused by the special lube, the last thing I need is the tip of my penis falling off.
2002-10-17 08:49:49 PM  
It sounds good... and also sounds pretty cheap. I'd hit it... umm... wait
2002-10-17 08:50:14 PM  
Brings new meaning to "numb nuts."
2002-10-17 08:50:14 PM  
A condom WITH an anaesthetic...So losing your virginity with one of those doesn't count?
2002-10-17 08:50:14 PM  
Now if they made a lube for making females O-faster....
2002-10-17 08:50:35 PM  
First, why would you want your prong numb during sex?

Second, you can also just rub a little cocaine on the tip for the effect. Or so I've heard.
2002-10-17 08:50:41 PM  
At first sales will rise with great enthusiasm.
They will peak shortly thereafter in a frenzy.
Then sales will sag quickly and drop off with disinterest.
2002-10-17 08:52:35 PM  
OKAY in all seriousness. i started dating my current girlfriend.. and when our relationship had finally hit the point when we were both ready to hit that level of "intemacy", i bought some of those rubbers... seemed like a good idea at the time..a condom that can give me the staying power of a Tantra-Master.. i was down with that idea.. anyway, okay so we get down to business.. i put one on... and like.. holy crap! I CANT FEEL MY SCHLONG!!!... seriously!!.. like the whole upper half of my Unit was Stone cold Numb...and not only that, but it lasted for like a Half hour after i took the damn thing off... we had a good laugh and immediatley switched to a more Traditional Rubber...i will Never try those things again.. wow.. i still get a shudder at the thought of having a numb johnson.. seriously disturbing
2002-10-17 08:52:38 PM  

They do. Viacreme. It's not lube, per se, but it's supposed to get the job done.
2002-10-17 08:52:44 PM  
so, on top of you guys having to wear a condom, you want something to numb the feeling even more??? i'm a girl,and I think condoms must suck for guys.
2002-10-17 08:52:50 PM  
Zoloft works good too
2002-10-17 08:53:57 PM  
I used to have a 6200.
Went for days without crashing.

lol threeve
2002-10-17 08:54:07 PM  

they do, it's called saliva
2002-10-17 08:55:13 PM  
so let me get this straight, all this time sex wasn't a race? i was winning every time! boy is my face red.

thank yew!
2002-10-17 08:55:15 PM  
Is this really an issue for some? Condoms by their nature slow me down so much i have no need to numb it any further. My god, I'd be going for hours. ... Wait a sec.
2002-10-17 08:56:15 PM  

Provided one uses one's mouth to apply said lube...
2002-10-17 08:56:44 PM  
I think condoms must suck for guys.

Wow! Which brand is that??

Seriously, they're really not that bad. Plus after sex you can blow them up and make cute animal shapes to amuse your SO.
2002-10-17 08:59:12 PM  
"Plus after sex you can blow them up and make cute animal shapes to amuse your SO."
Yessir! Nothing like an animal baloon full of semen to lighten the mood!!
2002-10-17 09:00:38 PM  
Nothin' says lovin' like a baloon animal full of your own jizz!
2002-10-17 09:00:57 PM  
Using these condoms and taking Viagra could make you die!
Well....or make her die.
2002-10-17 09:01:29 PM  
beat ya to it,Commie-Bob!!... Tbbbbt!!
2002-10-17 09:02:30 PM  
Fuzzygirl is right - condoms are enough all by themselves to remove any sensitivity.

Condoms should come with their own special sound effect
of a decreasing tone like something falling
if u know what i mean
2002-10-17 09:03:52 PM  
Yo, this might be good for virgins, but fellas, if you can't control your dick, your just not getting enough sex.
2002-10-17 09:04:50 PM  
yah i once tried these...forgot to bring my condoms with me so i went to buy some and figured what the hell i'll try these things (actually the ones from trojan though, but they do the same thing....) - anyway so i put it on and it was just like normal and figured ok whatever, normal farking then we started getting down to business and before long i realized that my dick was farking numb! i could't feel a thing! it really sucked cause it stay numb for a bit even after you take it off....but they do work though....shiat i lasted for like 4x the usual length
2002-10-17 09:05:53 PM  
Ew...blowing up a used condom? Bad mental image of a guy putting his mouth where his money shot...well you know.

Anyways, this seems pretty rediculous. Condoms cut down on sensation as it is...and who really wants the sex to go one for hours and hours and hours?

Stamina is overrated.
2002-10-17 09:06:48 PM  
nothing like a condom to take the feeling out of sex and just make it sweaty naked calisthenics... these rubbers are terrible.. dont believe the hype .. they dont work that well
2002-10-17 09:08:39 PM  
Stamina is overrated.

You don't have a girlfriend do you.
2002-10-17 09:09:08 PM  

No kidding. But more importantly, these don't glow in the dark.
2002-10-17 09:10:00 PM  
No damn way. What fun is there if you can't feel it? Condoms reduce the feeling enough as it is.

If you can't last long enough, eat her, make her orgasm, then do it right and shoot your load, you wussy minuteman.
2002-10-17 09:10:13 PM  
People actually need something that's MORE desensitizing?

Jesus, no wonder you guys get all worked up over boobies posts.

Condoms suck. Without a condom, I last about 15-20 minutes and the lovemaking is just more intimate and sensual. And natural. And fun, for both parties. My girls have always had a tendency to orgasm faster without a condom, too.

With a condom, I can prolong it for hours. No, that's not hours of joy. Everything feels uncomfortable and numb, and I actually get a sense of the sex being cold and uninviting. It's as if putting on the condom also puts up an emotional barrier. I don't like it. And I hate the smell. Stupid...latex.....friction. Blah. I've had problems of "drying out" girls before. It's not fun. I can only tolerate the ultra-thin ones. Science has GOT to come up with a better contraceptive than this.
2002-10-17 09:10:34 PM  
Ok Llarken:

I guess I mean boyfriend.

You really love your "2-minute Brother", don't you?
2002-10-17 09:10:42 PM  

and just make it sweaty naked calisthenics

Well, given the choice, I guess I'd take the sweaty/naked version.
2002-10-17 09:13:14 PM  
being a man of depraved sexual proclivities with a latex allergy, i strongly sugguest the Durex Polyethylene condoms...they feel Fantastic and none of the latex and my lady swear by them..
2002-10-17 09:14:25 PM  
Yo, my girl recently made me wear a condom after years, yes years, of not using one, because she wanted me to come inside her, instead of all over her. Anyway I couldn't even stay hard, it sucked.
2002-10-17 09:17:10 PM  
Ishkur I'm in your boat. The only ones I'll use are Trojan ultra-thin (in the purple box)... of course I'd rather not use one but then again I'd rather not have a baby before I'm out of college either.

Drying out a girl is a big problem. And I know someone will say "well if she dries out you must not be doing something right," but obviously these people don't know what it's like to go for more than 30 or 45 minutes.
2002-10-17 09:17:49 PM  

You should try a different brand/type, like polyethylene that Pogue23 mentioned. Or convince her that "bukkake" is a Buddhist ritual that will bring her inner peace.
2002-10-17 09:18:40 PM  
There is a better contraceptive, it's called birth control. Condoms suck!
