"I haven't found a need to switch to anything new. Condoms, a guy gets condoms and he uses them. Trojans work for me. I'm 27, and I have no kids and no diseases ... call me!"
On-Air Personality, 105.7 The Point Morning Show
"That thing? Talk about cumbersome -- it's like a Hefty Bag with a hula hoop on the end."
Bar Manager, Cicero's
"We've tried it twice and didn't like it much. The thing moves around, and it forms wrinkles. You get involved in hard-knock sex, you have to readjust it -- not conducive to l'amour. I feel it's a commercial gimmick to create more variety in condoms, and if you're gonna use a condom I recommend Sheik; they're very sensitive yet very strong. The only good thing I can see is, if you're having monogamous sex that night you can remove this device, clean it off and reinject the spermicide."
Artist/Sales Associate, Streetside Records
"No, but I know people who have, and they tell me it's basically a huge latex tube sock, and unless you're into kinky, bizarre sex it's bound to kill the mood."
Cashier, Mobil Gas House
"I haven't seen one, and I don't know much about it, but if it does what it's supposed to do -- prevent pregnancy and STDs with a minimum of discomfort -- then it's a positive thing and I'd say go for it!"
Barista, MoKaBe's Coffeehouse
"I don't know -- I wouldn't trust it, first off. Second, I wouldn't use it for the same reason that men don't like condoms. Third, I would imagine that they're really messy and hard to take out. So ... if the male condoms are called Trojans, then the female condoms should be called Helens."
