  1. Bring back a sampling. i’d like to find one that preserves about 20 percent of the experience…and doesn’t render the act of lovemaking a painful exercise in frustration.

  2. Shane says:

    Am I the only one who thinks it’s hilarious that those condoms say love on them? Who are we kidding?

  3. Nana Darkoa says:

    @Kofi – I have sooo many condoms now so yes there will definitely be plenty to sample. I am happy to give you a bunch so you can let me know if it preserves at least 20% of the experience. I actually want to write a post about pleasure, condoms and the risk of HIV…but time ooo….anyway, soon,

    @Shane – Oh you cynic!!!! What do you want it to say, lust???Only teasing – I hadn’t thought of it from that perspective but you’re right, lust or some other word like ‘fuck’ would be more appropriate

  4. Shane says:

    i like that word… fuck

  5. Adjoa says:

    what is that in the last picture? looks like a ceramic pussy…

    So I came across the survey carried out by Durex yesterday, and across your post today, hence thought I share it with you. Will I be correct to say that the figure of South Africa supports the AIDS/HIV stats from the country?


  7. Nana Darkoa says:

    @Tade – Thanks for sharing this…I think the survey is interesting. According to the survey 71% of people in South Africa have sex once a week with only 50% being sexually satisfied.

    You just motivated me to check http://www.unaids.org/en/CountryResponses/Countries/south_africa.asp for the latest stats and according to their country situation update, inter country prevalence varies between 5.3% and 46%. Of course the 46% is close to the 50% of people who according to the Durex survey say they enjoy sex but I would not draw any conclusions from that.

    I think the primary drivers of HIV are patriarchy (generally the most infected are young women between the ages of 15-19 who for a variety of reasons have had sex/been coerced into sex with significantly older men), a lack of comprehensive sexual education, in West Africa marriage is a significant risk factor for contracting HIV for women (concurrent partners/polygamy), women’s biological vulnerability to contracting HIV (its important to note that the social dimension fuels the biological vulnerability)…

    I have also shared some initial thought on the conference at http://www.awdf.org/browse/1295 I will write a specific post for this blog later

    Thanks for sharing the stats again
