So, the jury is still out on HIV from blowjobs, but HIV from used condoms in your mouth is a known transmission source? I'm glad I got that question answered.
I call bullshit.
Well, it depends on open cuts and sores. If you are a meth addict, you should not perform blowjobs, for example, as that increases your risk of AIDS/HIV.
Same goes if you have herpes and open sores in your mouth, or active lesions of any kind. Piercings increase your risk factor too.
What Fnarf said.
Holy disgusting fuck!
Seriously China! Are you that ignorant, or do you really hate your people as much as I suspect you do.
Hey, if Dong says it's true...
Dong? DONG? Where is grandpa's automobile?
Yet another reason not to buy crap that has "made in China" on it.
hahahahaha, you said DONG!!!
Okay seriously? I think this whole thing is retarded. A#1, where the hell are they getting the condoms from? Are there used condom nabbers who root for them in the trash? A#2 don't they have to do some processing to make them into rubber bands? At the very least, wouldn't they at least ... wash them? A#3 what STD is so potent that it would remain after days of oxygen and washing?
This whole story is crap.
I have one in my mouth right now, it tastes fine.
"In the latest example of potentially harmful Chinese-made products" -- c'mon, folks, you're being conned here.
For starters, prove to me that the cost of the rubber in hair bands is a significant part of the costs of the manufacturer -- and that it's more than the cost of collecting used condoms (from where?).
We happen to be in the middle of a media-generated hysteria over Chinese products, and another desperate "journalist" has made some shit up to try and get picked up on the wire. It's happened before.
The condoms on display on the woman's hat in the AFP story are spectacularly unlikely to be used ones. Condoms are free in China.
I call bullshit as well.
Remember the putting cardboard in food story a few months back?
OK, STDs aside, this is just plain NASTY! Semen is biowaste. In its decay other microbes join the party.
Don't want that in my hair, mouth, or anywhere near me, thank you very much.
Actually the AFP caption for the hat is, "Clothing decorated with condoms seen at the 4th China Reproductive Health New Technologies and Products Expo in Beijing."
This is not even one of the examples of recycled condom hairbands. It's just a picture of a Chinese person wearing a condom hat to PROMOTE REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH at a REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH EXPO.
Hey, hold on and give credit where credit is due. Here's one chinese product that isn't coated in lead or butyl diol.
@15 - depends on who it was in.
They're a bunch of dickheads.
Does nobody remember this? #11 nailed it, we're in the middle of a pretty extensive anti-China media blitz. I'm calling shenanigans on this one.
I'm just waiting for some Senators to smash a bunch of Chinese stuff on the steps of the Senate, like they did with Toshiba radios twenty years ago. Pointless, wrong-headed gestures? Sure, we can do that.
What are the chances that they're sold alongside bags of white jellybeans?
If the surname "Dong" isn't a dead give away for BS, I don't know what is. That or I'm an insensitive racist and it's coincidental :P
