A Stimulating Package We Can All Stand Behind

Thursday, February 12, 2009


Americans can't afford much nowadays, but we can afford condoms. In fact, in this economy, we've been buying more of them. Customers aren't the only folks getting a rise of late. Trojan, Lifestyles, Durex and other major condom manufacturers are among the few makers of consumer goods that have experienced thrusting sales.

According to The Nielsen Co., condom sales in the U.S. increased 5% in late-2008 and by 6% in January 2009. Contraception is believed to be more popular among breeders now because families are stretching dollars and want to avoid having more mouths to feed.

Jim Daniels, vice president of marketing for Trojan brand condoms, explained this economic anomaly: "If people don't have the money to go out to a fancy dinner or are looking to cut back, Trojan gives them some real affordable ways to stay in and make some great memories together."

I'm totally 100% with Jim on this. If there's one silver lining to be found in this dark economic cloud it's that it gives guys a reason to be cheap and to go for what we're all after: dem drawls.

I can tell you from experience that in-home entertainment is soooooooo much cheaper and less fussy than the ole' dinner and a movie route. Just this past Sunday I got me some and didn't have to spend a dime outside the bedroom or wait 'til 1 or 2 in the morning to get it poppin'. Because we didn't go out, we were done at a decent hour and I was up by 7am on Monday preparing for work.

That's a good look in any economy.

LOL!! You are crazy. Yes, sex is definitely a great boredom breaker. Oh the things you can do with a nice piece of body especially when you are so turned on by them and them you.

I think people are also more cautious about not getting pregnant in this economy. It's not the best time to be having babies...
