“We’re still so British about sex and condoms…”

2 11 2012

An interesting article about how the UK is still stuck in the Victorian age when it comes to sex and sexual health. (No surprise to anyone who knows a Brit, I’m sure…)

Incidentally, I have eaten at Cabbages & Condoms in Bangkok (such an interesting place name, don’t you think?) They do indeed have condoms instead of after-dinner mints.

“Funny tasting chewing-gum”

“Ah – but what bubbles!”

BBC News – Condoms: Why are we still embarrassed about using them?.
