My Dry Condom
Don’t you just love the catchy title?
Once you get past the testosterone-laden names like “magnum”, “Trojan”, “iron grip”, “beyond seven”, or “durex”, condoms have obvious and some not-so-obvious uses.
Given their intended purpose, I was bemused about using condoms to store water, to start a fire, or to be makeshift handcuffs.
The good news is that condoms are rather useful for STFU / TEOTWAWKI times.
The bad news is that the condoms you’ll need are not the ones you will want to use for their intended purpose.
You will need non-lubricated / non-spermicidal condoms.
The video below talks about starting a fire with a water-filled condom.
To me, condoms are hilarious to begin with.
I appreciate that they guard against pregnancy and /or STIs (sexually transmitted infections).
The “hey babe, wait till I suit up” moment is potentially awkward.
But so what?
I am in favor of NOT creating unplanned humans and NOT contracting STIs during clandestine, adult, playtime moments.
Sure, I care about the morality, but I care more about the societal/medical realities that potentially destroy lives.
I'm a pragmatist.
I'd make condoms beyond easy to acquire.
So, I’ll end this post with an amusing DIY video.
Buy your dry condoms. You’ll need them.
