Thankfully they don't do vasectomies - I would not know what to think.

First, toys, then dog food, and now, yes condoms!

Even before reports of tearing, youths involved with the group Metro TeenAIDS wondered why the wrappers weren't plastic or foil, like those sold in stores.

At least some sex ed is working, the kids are getting it.

Actually, the popular "no-scalpel" vasectomy method was developed in China.

Gulp. Anyone got a scalpel?

Might be time to go get a backup test.

I'm reminded of the drinking song I learned from multi-cultured friends in the mid-70s. Though this is a bit of a variation from what I learned, note the 4th verse. Perhaps the Chinese who developed those condoms had friends/relatives performing abortions?

It's funny, or perhaps fitting, that I recall little of the lousy Economics course I took my sophomore year at UTC, but I DO recall that song (thanks Eddie!) and, I think, how to call someone a "dick with ears" (thanks Nina!) in German. Who says you can't get a useful, culturally diverse education in TN?

I remember reading back in the 60s that China purchased a turnkey condom factory from the Japanese capable of producing 50 million rubbers a year. As someone pointed outm that took care of the night of January first.
