South African DP Ramaphosa introduces the tasty new condom in parliament


Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa urged MPs on Thursday to make use of government’s new free flavoured condoms as he outlined stepped-up measures to prevent new HIV infections.

He brought government’s new Max condoms along to the National Assembly to demonstrate.

“The Max condom is in response to what a number of people were saying. They were saying the other condom that had been introduced by government did not smell so well and it made a noise whenever it was used,” the deputy president said to cheers, giggling and calls from opposition benches to “give that to Zuma”.

“The Max is for maximum pleasure , maximum protection and it … it comes in different flavours. If you want a grape flavour, you can get a grape flavour. If you want an apple flavour, you can get an apple flavour,” Ramaphosa said.
