Condom cell phone chain, “for emergency use”

| October 31st, 2010


(IFeng) Cartoon characters, football, flowers, playing cards… in the age of individualism, students’ cell phone chain could be multifarious. But can you imagine condom being a cell phone charm? Currently, this condom cell phone charm appeared on the market in Nanning. Most people bought this are high school and vocational school students. They feel it is “fresh”, “cool” and “shows character”, some even said it is “for emergency use”.

Recently, Ms. Li who lives at Hengyang Road, Nanning thought it was “very unbelievable” when she saw a condom hanging from her vocational school student cousin’s cell phone. Ms. Li said, she was born after the 80s, the society views her generation as very liberal. However because condoms often reminded people of sex, they still feel embarrassed whenever talking about them. Now kids from the post 90s actually swinging around condoms openly.

When asked about hanging condoms on a cell phone, Ms. Li’s cousin Xiao Li appeared very calm. “Many students in school have this kind of cell phone chain. Everyone thought they are unique and fashionable. And it is also very convenient for young men carrying a condom.” Xiao Li said, before he carries a condom in his pocket and always feel very nervous, afraid of others see it accidentally. “Now we can openly carry it , for emergency use.”

In a shopping mall on National Road in Nanning city, reporter saw different styles of “Interesting Imported Condoms”.(that’s what they are called) The wrapper were printed with cartoon characters, zodiac signs etc. graphics and the inside contains a condom of varies colors. There is a hole on the edge of the condom wrapper which holds the cell phone chain. These condoms are priced at 5 yuan to 20 yuan each. Other than the picture design printed on the wrap, there are no brand name, manufacture and expiration dates etc. information.

As for student’s buying these cell phone charms, Nanning City Next Generation of Educational Research senior psychologist Su Chang believes that teachers and parents should not make too much fuss about it and they should downplay it. Teachers and parents should communicate with their children equally and peacefully, to listen to children’s real reason for hanging condom on cell phones. Parents and teachers can also take this opportunity to strengthen sex education, to preach correct and scientific sex knowledge, let kids know the correct use of condoms and how to better protect themselves during puberty.

As for these condoms, medical experts expressed concerns from a safety point of view. “These condoms without formal certifications have no guarantee in quality. It’s ok to hang them on cell phones as toys, but we must education kids not to use them.” A doctor from Autonomous Region People’s Hospital said, defective condoms cannot prevent pregnancy, also can not prevent AIDS and other sexual transmitted diseases, and even may lead to reproductive tract infection.

    Many people have it and they all think they are unique. Sounds like the teenagers in the USA who shop at Hot Topic in the mall so they can be different and rebellious just like everyone else.

    Well apparently keeping a condom in your wallet can be bad too. I’ve heard that it stretches the condom out and makes it more prone to breakage. But I think all in all promoting condom use and sex ed is a good thing given China’s ongoing sexual revolution.
