Vegan condoms launched
BBC ^ | 10-27-2001

Posted on 10/28/2001 12:56:41 PM PST by Hillary's Lovely Legs

A cruelty-free condom has been launched to cater for the much neglected vegan market.

The range of condoms has been manufactured using no animal ingredients or derivatives, in line with vegan beliefs.

Traditionally the processing of latex, used to make condoms, has involved the use of casein - a milk protein.

Vegans shun milk because its production involves breeding calves destined for the meat industry, which they regard as cruel.

But the range from German manufacturer Condomi utilises cocoa powder instead and has been awarded the Vegan Society's seal of approval.

Vegan Society general manager Richard Fairhall said: "Much to their frustration vegans in the UK have long been denied access to a cruelty-free condom.

"The launch of Condomi's range changes all that - no longer will vegans have to suppress their natural instinct to make love not war."

Condomi condoms are available through the Family Planning Association and are soon to go on sale in Superdrug stores priced from £1.99 for a pack of three.<

Be glad that I didn't include the picture.

I am particularly glad that these condoms are cruelty-free. Nothing worse than a cruel condom.

Nothing worse than a cruel condom.

The worst are the ones that taunt and tease.

Anything that keeps these idiots from reproducing is a benefit to society.

BTW, doesn't Planned Parenthood participate in the mass slaughter of trees with all of the paperwork for abortions and contraceptive propaganda? Or....do their clients insist on recycled paper only?

I guess we can send these to Afghanistan. If they aren't in the mood, at least they can eat them.

I don't think it is possible that these vegans can be less useless. What a bunch of morons. The world is on the brink of WWIII and these idiots are rolling out vegan approved condoms.

Lets hope some will be motivated not to reproduce.

Do they come with spermicidal Tofu?

Tofu is not spermicidal, It's homocidal.

Remember, a 7th grade boy is not developed enough to form a "snug" fit.

And to think, I always thought they were supposed to be rolled on. No wonder I hated the darn things.

"Much to their frustration vegans in the UK have long been denied access to a cruelty-free condom."

I'm all for condoms that are kind to vegans, but I'm a little concerned about bloody old England if it really has a large population of sexually frustrated women who steadfastly refuse to even touch anything that's milky or meaty.

In any other culture, this would be considered an Absurdist piece. Only in the addled days of the 21st century does this even make sense. Which it doesn't, if you care to think about it.

theres still a wiener involved.

Uhh ... wonder if it would bother the vegans to know that a large percentage of cocoa is produced in the Sudan by slave labor? Oh and a lot of the slave owners are muslim extremists? Leastways no cow was milked to produce it. Thank goodness.

Vegan condoms?

I'm sure you'd much rather enjoy the old fashioned, full-flavored meaty variety.

Even comes with its own special sauce...
