GUEST,Fibula Mattock BS: Celebrating Nat'l Condom Month? (45) RE: BS: Celebrating Nat'l Condom Month? 09 Feb 01

Hmmm, I could send my beloved some for Valentine's Day, but chocolates are cheaper.
Do I pay for sex? Yes, if you include the price of the condom. Let's see.... a packet of 12 for about 9 quid... (Buying in bulk is certainly cheaper, otherwise they're a quid each.) That's at least 75 pence a go! Sex twice a week (the average, isn't it, according to someone's research?) at 75 pence a go is a whopping 78 quid a year. Now take into account the torn ones, the ones that get dropped on the carpet or that someone tries to put on inside-out in a state of darkness and inebriation. Now add on any nights of passion involving multiple numbers of the little blighters (the condoms, not the men). You're talking at least 100 quid a year. It all adds up. As a student I'm supposed to be "fornicating in bedsits" (according to an article I once read in the Daily Mail). How can I possibly afford to on my meagre research grant?
