Aussies like online shopping, so I guess this is a logical extension: condom brand Big Richard is offering a condom subscription service, where a pack of condoms is sent out postage-free every month. Is this is a sensible way to ensure contraception and sexual health?
I figured that in an era where you can grab condoms in any self-service supermarket, the "it's embarrassing" argument against condoms would have evaporated. There are two other potential arguments against the arrangement. The first is that the service says that "to keep things interesting, we'll send you a different condom pack each month... rotating between ultra thins & ribbed". Lots of people will have a definite preference.
The second is that, as is often the case, you'll pay a premium for convenience. A monthly 12-pack will set you back $10. I can get a 12-pack at my local supermarket for under $7.50, and even cheaper if there's a sale. (There's no contract with the subscription, so you can cancel whenever you want, though longer-term deals attract a discount. For an extra $10 a month, you can also get a random sex toy sent in each package.)
It's not for me, but there are millions of other potential condom users out there. Would you sign up?
