Jen’s recent meditation on buying prophylactics reminded me of a photo I took in the men’s bathrooms on the third floor of the newly revamped UGC Cinemas in Dublin. It amused me because the options were ‘Ribbed’ and ‘Extra Safe’. Who wouldn’t choose ‘Extra Safe’? And what does that imply about ‘Ribbed’? It’s fun, but totally useless at preventing disease and pregnancy? Plus, only the ‘Extra Safe’ model offers the ‘Easy On’ feature.
Also, 4 euros for 2 condoms seemed very pricey–that’s CAN $3.15 a condom. You’d want to make sure the other person was worthy, eh? It’s a bit blurry, because I didn’t want to use the flash. There was a guy in one of the stalls that, you know, might have been freaked out.
