  • News story: Cdn soldiers issued a large amount of military condoms

    This news story piqued my curiousity --> "Canadian soldiers issued a large amount of military condoms":
    http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Canada/2...626069-cp.html

    I know there are military versions of common civillian products such as computers, cars, etc. but I would have never guessed that there was such a thing as "military condoms" as opposed to the usual civillian condoms.

    Perhaps the military ones are camouflage-coloured?

      Would that be jungle or desert camies, there Albinus?

        No, condoms have often been "standard issue" items for military forces deployed in other parts of the world.

        As far as I know - this isn't so in Afghanistan -- but there are other places that the Blue Berets go.

        This might sound weird - during WW2 my mother worked in a Massachusetts factory that made various rubber goods -- life rafts, boots, gloves, protective gear, and yes -- condoms - for our fighting men overseas.

          The good news for Canadian taxpayers is they're getting lots more bang for their buck.

          Well it's a good thing it wasn't the U.S. government doing the buying. What was it they paid for a screwdriver ???

            I'm not surprised at the distribution of condoms, historically or otherwise -- just wondering what differentiates *military* condoms from your local drug store condoms.

              Probably the price, the packaging, and -- the standards of manufacturing - if that makes sense.

                This topic/thread is being moved to Open Conversation category as it has not much to do with naturist or nudist or social nude recreation.

                      During the WW2 time period I don't remember hearing that condoms were issued, (to USA military) but they did show us scarry VD movies and tell us how to use a condom correctly, and they had military prophylactic stations so that the service man could wash his genitals and squirt a salve up his penis after he already had intercourse.
