    South Koreans Using Sex To Calm Nerves. Stores Report Boom In Condom Sales

    POSTED: 10:11 am EDT October 27, 2006

    SEOUL, South Korea -- Now that North Korea boasts of the A-bomb, what are nervous South Koreans doing?

    Many seem to be forgetting their troubles in the sack. Convenience stores in South Korea are reporting a boom in condom sales.

    South Korea's notorious love motels are booked solid, too. The places rent rooms by the hour.

    There are no vacancies at one popular online reservation site until sometime next month. The head of the Korea Institute for Sex Education isn't surprised by the anxious couplings. She noted sex is a great stress reliever.

    Have you ever notice the label on a box of condoms where it says"Pre-tested...."?
    Somewhere in this world,there's a guy that gets to work on time everyday.He's probably there a couple hours early,warming up.
    Personally,I figure there's a bench of guys "testing"these things and the scene looks like"Hey,Jonesy,yer takin' too much time.",to which Jonesy replies,"Hey F*** you,boss.I'm union and I'm goin' for the overtime!"

    Kiwi walks into convenience store in Seoul and asks for a pack of Condoms.

    Store owner states. " 5 Dollar with Tax"

    Kiwi stares at him blankly and says

    Overseas Condom Production Hurting U.S. Business

    Most of the competition is coming from Asia, where condoms can be produced for a fraction of the cost.
    Tuesday, October 31, 2006
    United Press International

    Condom production in the United States is facing competition from overseas, putting many jobs at stake, The New York Times reported.

    Most of the competition is coming from Asia, where condoms can be produced for a fraction of the cost.

    Through AIDS prevention and other programs overseas, Alabama companies have won federal contracts to produce billions of condoms. But workers at a plant in Eufaula, Ala., told the Times they were feeling the onslaught of competition from Asia.

    The U.S. government is the largest donor of condoms in the world. The Times reported in the past two decades that more than 9 billion condoms have been bought by the United States in response to the worldwide AIDS crisis.

    Many of these condoms, though, are Asian-made. The use of these condoms has contributed to layoffs scheduled for the Eufaula plant next month, the report said.
