WATCH: How condoms are made

A lot of work goes into your condoms – and a new video from the Trojan brand sheds light on what actually happens in condom factories around the world.

Wearing condoms and using water-based lube for sex is the best method for protecting yourself from HIV and other sexually transmitted infections, so it’s important that each condom meets exacting medical standards – and since each one has a shelf-life of five years, make sure you check the use-by date on the packet before you slip it on.

Here’s a behind-the-scene look at the Trojan factory which produces 1 million condoms daily:

The video emerges in a week when social media geeks are giggling about the similarity between the names of new Android phones and condom types.

As the graph below shows, ‘Desire’, ‘Sensation’, ‘Touch’, ‘Cruise’ and even ‘Wildfire’ are all names given to both Android phones and condoms.

I used to work for Pacific Dunlop one arm of which was Ansell. My particular IT section was located in the Ansell building. Some very funny condom stories from there!
The poor receptionist used to get all the crazy phone calls. eg: the condom's too small for me. "Yeah? Well how big are you? The condoms fit 4 footballs inside them?" And the condoms destined for the Asian market came in 4 sizes - medium, large, XL, XXL. There was about 1 ml difference between the sizes, and needless to say, the biggest sellers were the the XXL. And we all had condom moulds on our desks as decoration. Basically, just pieces of dowelling stuck into a base board.

Yes it's hard to find an XXL condom in Japan that fits *cough*

You've had such a full and interesting life Irene ;)
