Our Minister of Health on the government's new 'sexed-up' condoms:

You can still enjoy sex with a condom," Tshabalala-Msimang said yesterday at the launch. "Actually, it's much more enjoyable.

"Condoms should not only be a necessity but should be seen as sexy and part of the fun."

Rubbing her fingers, the minister added: "They are lubricated, so it's nice ..."


I'm not quite sure what mental image I'm meant to form as I read this, or if I want to form one at all...

More seriously, though, funkier condoms are probably a very good idea and its nice to see that even the normally wayward Manto is promoting them. It also strikes me as positive that our politicians are personalising AIDS (even if they are doing so in strange ways), and identifying it as a problem for everyone, rather than just a certain sector of society (which obviously creates prejudice). Hopefully the next step will be for the likes of Manto and Mbeki to publicly have AIDS tests, and to be honest when their colleagues die of the disease.

Funky, assorted colours (ROYGBIV), fruit flavours, and different textures. That's how they need to be, in order to remove the stigma that surrounds their use, in order to attract the younger generation, and, frankly, in order to make them fun to use.
