Do Some Guys Actually LIKE Wearing Condoms?

It’s always been my understanding — from personal experience, friends’ experience and general popular culture — that most guys hate wearing condoms and if pregnancy and STDs weren’t a concern, they’d totally ditch the latex.

Pharmacy checkout clerks, whether they know it or not, have a reputation for being the most judgmental people on Earth. Everyone is neurotic about what the cashier must be thinking when they slip a box of Durex condoms on the counter.

Condom Pillow: Silkscreened For Her Pleasure

As someone who has at least a surface interest in interior design, I feel pretty strongly that a person’s possessions and home decor ought to say something about him or her. I, for example, have a ton of Asian crap around my apartment, like silkscreens, fans, woodwork and other knick-knacks, not because I’m Asian, but…

Where ARE Condoms Made?

Earlier this week we told you how the federally funded United States Agency of International Development (USAID), stopped distributing American-made condoms overseas in favor of less expensive Chinese-made condoms. USAID’s switch caused a bit of stir, not only because it means 300 jobs at an American condom factory will be lost, but also because several…

U.S. Government Buys Cheaper, Foreign Condoms

Would you use a foreign-made condom because it was cheaper than an American-made condom? I know, you’re probably thinking, “Wait, does it matter where my condoms are made?” Perhaps.
