Condom Sales Plunge 40% As World Tosses Rubbers Aside

• by Tyler Durden

Here's BBG:

The world's largest maker of condoms hasn't been spared from the coronavirus pandemic as the use of its products slumped as much as 40% in the last two years.

Sexual activity using the contraceptive didn't increase even as people stayed home amid lockdowns to curb the spread of the virus, Nikkei Asia reported, citing Karex Bhd.'s Chief Executive Officer Goh Miah Kiat.

With this in mind, it's reasonable to conclude that those Americans who are still having sex (many probably with the same person they've been sleeping with since the start of the pandemic), have apparently gotten comfortable enough that they're tossing the rubbers aside.
