While I was walking through Walgreens drug store looking for some cough syrup, I noticed the mega boxes of condoms. I couldn’t help thinking about how times have changed. Are young boys being deprived of that awkward moment of asking the pharmacist for a condem? Has that rite of passage been put to rest? Does the pharmacist even matter in the equation? It appears you just grab one of these monster size boxes and go up to the register…and pray they don’t need a price check.
I imagine there are enterprising young boys who buy these Costco size condem boxes and then sell them individually for a profit. Clearly there could be some advantages to not having to face an adult and buy a condem. However, what would it say to your peers if you only bought one condem.? So you’d probably have to purchase at least a half a dozen to keep up the perception that you are a stallion. And after a short time, they’d have to buy more in order to keep up the perception they’re having sex, even if the condems are rotting away in their wallet or being used in water balloon fights. Move over lemonade stand…hello condem stand !
