Taking a page from the lessons learned in the Olympic village about condom distribution, more free condoms will be available in Jing’an office buildings reports dfdaily.eastday.com (h/t Shanghai Daily). It appears that over 50 buildings in the district already distribute free condoms and last year over 100,000 rubbers were taken from these venues.
The record number of condoms taken in a day was apparently 4,000 from Plaza 66. We are not sure what this says about the lunchtime activities of the tenants of one of Shanghai’s most up market office buildings but it is encouraging to see that at least safe sex is on the rise.
An official from the Jing’an District Family Planning Commission commented:
“Rising consumption indicated that more people than ever before know how to protect themselves and live a more healthy life.”
Of course this begs the question of how these condoms are really consumed.
