Call for Condom Testers Swamped by Offers
Fri Nov 15, 9:01 AM ET


LONDON (Reuters) - An appeal for British students to volunteer to rigorously road test condoms and be paid 100 pounds ($158) a term into the bargain has been overwhelmed by applicants, manufacturer Condomi said Friday.

Within a week of the appeal for sexually-active men and women to come forward, the firm had received 10,000 applications and is combing the list selecting 100 who will get lucky.

The winners will be required to perform what the firm called "rigorous pleasure tests" on its entire range and fill in a detailed questionnaire on their reactions.

"The response has been phenomenal," marketing manager Victoria Wells said. "It is quite surprising how much detail some people go into when answering intimate questions."


How's that for combining business with pleasure? Laughing

When you were in school, would you take a "job" like that?

When I was in school, we rarely spoke the word (I believe it was referred to as 'protection').

bandylu2- Wow! You take me back. I haven't heard condoms called "protection" since I was a teenager. Remember that the guys would have a ring shaped mark on their wallets, from where the "protection" rubbed against the leather! Surprised

When my hubby was in high school, his father once took him aside and told him (disapprovingly) that he had found the 'thing' he had in his wallet. My hubby had no idea what his father was talking about. They both went to retrieve and then open the wallet -- hubby had a silver dollar stuck in there (boy was his father embarrassed).

In my little town, though the drug stores carried condoms (frenchies), most of us were too shy by half to walk in and order them up. Our salvation, and our girlfriends', was Merv from Merv's Shell Station. I doubt a condom sale mattered much back then when drag racing blew so many or our parents' transmissions. There really ought to be a civic plague in this fellow's honor.

Isn't it interesting that these days the condoms are at the checkout counter and the cigerettes are locked up.

That's very cute. And a more correct balance, for sure.

So it'd be like:

'Gassed her up, done under the hood, checked front and rear tyres, windscreen clean - now would young sir like something for the backseat later this evening?'


As for that 'civic plague', I think he did a fine job stopping any plagues.

What is it about older men and condoms? Getting to wear them is like pulling teeth - avoid, avoid, avoid. Sheeeeeeeeesh!

They might be afraid they will lose the moment in the moment it takes to use one Deb or not. Or perhaps a manly urban myth that condoms interfere with sex.

In my job, the difference of a few thousandth's of an inch (a few tenth's of a millimeter) can make the difference...

But I always tell the Quality Engineers 'What's a few thousandth's betwen friends?'

-pause-

'A condom'

Well, I 'came of age', so to speak, in the 80's, and with the AIDS crisis being relatively new, all I heard was condom condom condom. As for interfering with sex, like SealPoet said, it all depends on the brand. Some feel like a diaper, some are quite sheer.
