Condoms fall apart in "hot" countries (Health)

posted by bibleprobe1(R), 03.30.2009


No! the Catholic Pope is probably right! First hand experience tells me that.

Most places where AIDS is going crazy are in very hot environments. In the article you first referred to it says; "People began noticing years ago that the countries in Africa with the highest condom availability and highest condom user rates, also had the highest HIV infection rates". Yes! The African continent is a hot place! And I note, however, the picture of the Pope in that article appears to me to be of the late John Paul, and not Benedict. Why? Or, am I wrong? Has Benedict "morphed" into a look-alike for John Paul? Interesting...

Personally, I recall, flying from my Navy duty station in Japan on leave, and landing in Olongapo City in the Philippines for a Diving Trip in a sweltering July (100 degrees), with my 2nd wife. It was my first experience where I had to go into a local shop (or any shop for that matter) and buy condoms. Sort of embarrasing for the guy to say the least.

Anyways, what I bought in this local "pharmacy" apparently went through a few years of intense heat and mishandling. It/they fell apart during use. They could make the condoms "thicker". But who would use them then?

So yes, the Catholic Pope is likely right. Abstinence is the only sure way to halt AIDS.

The alternative? Double the thickness of condoms and ensure, some way, somehow, that they stay at a temperature below 80 degrees Fahrenheit... Good luck with that!
