I found this youtube link about the Cabbage & Condom Restaurant in Bangkok Thailand. Honestly an interesting idea when you think about it. Anyone ever heard of it? Is this somewhere you think youd eat at if you ever had the chance?

I've never heard of that, but in Sweden they deliver condoms in an ambulance to people "caught in a promising situation, but without protection." Apparently this was started to reduce the spread of chlamydia. I think it's a pretty cool idea, though rather amusing, too. Can you imagine what their emergency calls must sound like?

HAHA ... how about that as a sign for the nosy neighbors! I can see people peeking out between their curtains now. But then again I'm a small town gal ... so people tend to know everything that happens in everyone's lives anyway.

I definately want to go to that cabbage and condom restaurant. I think it's cool they have a museum too! I don't know that I'd be calling the condom truck to come help me though. Shouldn't they bring lubricant too? Someone should suggest that to them.

Wow, that's interesting!

I have to laugh about the condom ambulance - when I was much younger my brother (who dispatches ambulances, fire trucks, etc) told me that if I'm ever in a situation where I'm feeling too pressured to have sex, call him and then pretend to faint and he'd send some of his buddies to pick me up.

I'm going to mention that idea to him - maybe we could get condom ambulances going in the US. [Wink]

That's pretty interesting.
There's a store a friend introduced me to called ConRev, condom revolution. The front of the store is as you can guess, devoted to condoms and its kinda funny because if you stand there looking at them for more than 3 seconds an employee will suddenly appear at your side asking if you have any questions about the condoms your looking at.
