Humpday Humor: The Rise Of China's Counterfeit Condoms

Tyler Durden's picture


Fake iPhones - who cares? Fake Gucci handbags - spread the wealth? But fake condoms is going too far. As China Daily reports, a underground workshop producing fake brand-name condoms was busted after police found clues on an online marketplace. Police confiscated more than 2 million bogus condoms labeled Jissbon, Durex and Contex. While a knock-off prophylactic is priced at 1 yuan (16 cents), it costs less than 0.2 yuan to produce.

In February, police noticed that prices of brand-name condoms were unreasonably low on one online store, and they bought some products (just to check we are sure). As Bloomberg adds, in April, public health authorities from Ghana impounded more than 1 million substandard condoms, many of them imported from China. “When we tested these condoms, we found that they are poor quality, can burst in the course of sexual activity, and have holes which expose the users to unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease."

The production of the fake condoms was so simple that the 50-square-meter workshop could produce 20,000 counterfeits a day.

Thirty-seven suspects were arrested, and more than 4.65 million fake condoms with an estimated value of 47.7 million yuan were seized in the joint operation.

Jissbon and Durianex engorged story have the interest muchso.

Gives with Jissbon sunglassery image having modness. On Durianex with surveyors have sexs on the Chineses People's Daily "per capita sexual partners as 19.3, while with the most gloomy sex ardour."

Wisdomary on "Chinese view on sex arouses introspection among Westerners."

Can truth exist upon this perplexively?

The easiest way to tell if a condom is real is to look at the serial number or company logo on it.

It is all about building things at the lowest possible price.   It does not matter that it works.  As long as the buyer thinks it might work and gets a good price.

I've never heard of anyone returning a defective used condom.  The Chinese probably didn't see much downside risk as a result.

I have a stick glue that was made in Japan.  I bought this more than 15 years ago.  And I can still use this.

I had six stick glues that were made in China.  All of them became unusable in less than six months.

Stick glue...  It's such a simple thing. But I guess the Chinese culture is all about making money now, and it shows.

In reality, this is bullish for China.  They have a population problem (aging) created by the abortion loving and euthanizing globalists.  Once the Chinese overthrow their gubmint, for the benefit of the people, it will be good to have a next generation...non?
