Police raid reveals recycling facility for more than 300,000 used condoms


Vietnamese authorities discovered a large number of used condoms which were recycled and stored for sale.

An installation had been installed in an apartment, where nearly 324,000 used condoms were repackaged.

Police confiscated all products from the apartment, located in Binh Duong province in southern Vietnam.

Vietnamese newspaper Tuoi Tre News reports that all condoms used in the illegal production base were found unpackaged and unlabelled.

The owner of the establishment, Pham Thi Thanh Ngoc, claimed that she received a monthly contribution of used condoms from an unknown person.

The condoms then went through a process that included washing, drying and then reshaping with a dildo, under unsanitary conditions, before being released for sale.

A few years ago, the Centers for Disease Control And Prevention tweeted a message aimed at sexually active Americans – advising them not to wash condoms. This is not a joke.

The agency tweeted: “Don’t wash or reuse condoms. We say it, because people do. »FFS.

According to the Daily Mail, up to three percent of people have tried to reuse condoms and the CDC wants to do their job and help reduce the risk of getting sexually transmitted infections (STIs), they also reminded everyone that prophylactics can be collected free of charge from health centers and can only be used once.

You might not think that three percent (3.3% to be precise) isn’t that many people, but there are a lot of people in the United States, so that would still equate to a considerable number of people who leave for the second round with their rubber friend.

Giving these people some credit – and the benefit of the doubt – washing condoms was common practice. The Sex Pistols (rightly so) and Elvis Costello even sang songs about washing condoms. But that was in the 70s, folks.

Mark, a guest on The Jeremy Kyle Show (shock horror), asked Kyle and the audience if they “like caramel crisps”. Who doesn’t, right?

He then revealed: “She [ex girlfriend Joanne] had sex with someone who wore Toffee Crisp wrap like a johnny. ”

Behind the scenes, ex Joanne was adamant that she wasn’t the one with the unconventional contraceptive practices as she said, “Actually, it wasn’t me. “
