When your sex-ed teacher told you to wrap it up, they didn’t mean with anything.
A new survey by Bayer HealthCare found that some young couples are resorting to pretty desperate measures to have “safe” sex. Specifically, about a quarter of the 1,500 female respondents they asked in the U.K. reported knowing of someone that had used something like a PLASTIC SANDWICH BAG in place of a condom.
Let’s try to imagine for a second a romantic scenario where, fresh off an evening of wining and dining, your partner cracks open a food saver bag and slips it on.
Hot. Super hot. But it gets better!
The respondents also listed other “alternative” contraception methods they’d heard of, such as cling wrap or a latex glove (Should we experiment with the thumb slot today, honey?). A quarter of respondents also thought they couldn’t get pregnant while on their period.
Well then, aren’t they in for the shock of a lifetime?
Bottom line: Don’t improvise when it comes to safe sex. There’s a convenience store with condoms right down the street.
You’ll find them right next to the sandwich bags.
