Nice. Very nice.

I have yet to see a condom machine in the US that hasn't been been vandalized by some idiot who chooses to be offended by an image of a condom.

Yes, that's usually the extent of the damage: The picture of a condom has either been neatly removed or covered with a decal.

Rajesh Nainakwal from the Hindustan Latex Family Planning Promotion Trusts (HLFPPT)

It was probably those bastards at the People's Hindustan Latex Family Planning Promotion Front (PHLFPPF).

It'd only have to steal ONE desperate purchaser's money before it's ripped out of the wall, really. Hell, I almost did that for my red bull the other day. (Stupid sliding plastic door kind...)

causing concern among Aids and HIV-prevention activists

Why? AIDS ain't so bad provided you have a steady supply of virgins around.

Thought I'd check in and see how long it took for someone to post that.
Such a great line.

You would think that these vending machines would have some kind of protection.

Apparently Westerners pack too much meat, and the Indian men don't measure up.

If somebody is offended by it, they shouldn't go to bowling alleys.

These machines are installed in areas where high risk people like truck drivers are likely to visit.

Truck drivers? Seriously??

Whatever, it's just a bunch of kids getting ready for the World Cup and making their own footballs(^).

Hell yes they're risky.

They drive too many hours in a day, often jacked up on caffeine or even some illegal stimulants. That's risky in my book.

/actually that's just something I've heard and never bothered to look into.

They've been known to lie to young models to get them to lie with them...

This thread delivers.

Well, it will in nine months, anyway.
 
2010-01-05 5:16:54 PM  
Wait... if people aren't able to get condoms from the machines, wouldn't that make things conceivable?
 
2010-01-05 5:18:34 PM  
Truckers make good lovers.
 
2010-01-05 5:19:56 PM  
A machine never contains more than 100 rupees ($2)

Sounds like Indian condoms are ridiculously cheap or each machine holds only two condoms.
 
2010-01-05 5:20:25 PM  
Activists have now employed a security guard to prevent thefts from happening in future.

Boy, that'll look great on your resume. Condom guard.
 
2010-01-05 5:20:47 PM  
They need to incorporate the condom dispensers with ATMs. Figure if you're pulling money out of an ATM for booze late at night, they need to automatically dispense a condoms as well. Figure it would save a lot of problems and also make life very convenient.
