Finally, we can have condoms tasting like our favourite comfort food – nasi lemak. A Malaysian rubber company claiming to be the world’s biggest condom maker, Karex, are coming up with yet another unusual design. Some of their best-sellers include glow-in-the-dark condoms, tattoo-inspired textured ones and even condoms with studs.
These nasi lemak condoms apparently have a faint coconut scent and are coated with warming lubricant in case you want to do Simon aka Ice King.
“For me, it’s about public health, and I want to get the message across to people” Goh, Karex CEO
Goh, CEO of Karex, insists that the range of wacky condoms are more than just a marketing gimmick. “For me, it’s about public health, and I want to get the message across to people,” he says. Goh wants to encourage the use of contraceptives in a predominantly conservative country. He explains, “We Malaysians are divided across our political ideas, religion and race. I felt one question that unites us all is ‘Where’s the best nasi lemak place you’ve been?'”
These special edition condoms will tentatively be hitting the shelves in November or December.
