Sinosplice brought our attention to the following ChinesePod (click here to download full episode) which we think is one of the most practical lessons they’ve ever taught us. Well, this time, Ken and Jenny have decided we need to learn how to get our own condoms! The following blurb is found on the pod:
Drug stores are full of potentially embarrassing items. Embarrassment is exponentially heightened when it involves the acting out of said item to drug store clerk, gesturing to specific body parts and drawing pictures. Thankfully, we at ChinesePod do not shy away from these topics (to wit: lesson on buying tampons), and wouldn’t want to see you acting out the word for “condom.” Thus, this podcast, where you will learn how to discreetly ask for your contraceptive of choice, in Mandarin Chinese.
Sinosplice also brings our attention to 牛X语言, which is possibly the largest online repository of Chinese sexual vocabulary and slang (with English and Swedish translations) around.
Now that ChinesePod has taught us how to get our condoms, we really wonder if they will teach us how to make out next!
