With the ever-increasing rates of teenage/unplanned pregnancies and STD’s, it would seem there are a lot of people out there who are still anti-condoms (or anti-condom use). So this post is in tribute to them.
*People who are actually allergic to a certain type of condom are not exempt from this blast. After all, condoms come in different materials (and flavors! yum!).
Thank God for the Chinese, who have found wonderful (but, unfortunately, not as fun) alternative uses for the condom.

Condom Fashion Show in China
Models paraded in outfits made of condoms during a fashion show at the 4th China Reproductive Health New Technologies & Products Expo in Beijing July 11, 2007. Condoms of all shapes and sizes were used to make dresses, hats and even lollipops. Models fought through extravagant soap bubble special effects to show off tight-fitting wedding gowns, scaly-looking evening dresses, outrageous bikinis and other garments made entirely of condoms. The show was held at the Fourth China Reproductive Health New Technologies and Products Expo and organized by China’s largest condom manufacturer, Guilin Latex Factory, to promote the use of condoms in the fight against HIV/AIDS. It also marked World Population Day, organized annually by the U.N. Population Fund.
