Australia equips Olympic team with extra safe condoms

1463292120600The Australian pharmaceutical company Starpharma announced it will supply extra safe condoms for the 2016 Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. The reason is that they want to be extra safe against the Zika Virus. Now that it turned out that the Zika virus is sexually transferable Australia wants to be as safe as possible.

We honestly believe that the biggest risk is getting bitten by a mosquito while actually performing the deed you need that condom for in the first place. So unless the Zika virus gives sperm cells the change to bite┬átheir way through a regular condom we don’t think this will make sex much safer for the Australian Olympic team.

To us this raises another question: how many condoms are there bein used during these olympics? We’ll get back to you on that!

Condom Sizes

Ok, the world’s largest condom is 20 ft (6 mtr), but it’s used for promotion, not as an actual condom. The largest condom available on the market today is 9.25″ (23.5cm) long and 4.42″ around. Now, a good latex condom will stretch about 10-20 times it’s own size, so this should be enough for even the biggest equipped men.

The smallest condom available. It’s 3″ (8cm) long and 1.6″ around.

Condoms have been in use for 400 years. These days they are generally made out of latex. The earlier ones were made out of animal intestines…

The porn industry is affected by condom use as well. When a law was instated in LA requiring porn actors to wear condoms during shoots most of the industry moved to Las Vegas. Now you know… stay safe!
