No, they're not part of your 5-a-day.
Taiwanese student Guan-Hao Pan has come up with a new packaging system that allows men the chance to pick their condom size by feel. The ‘Love Guide’ packaging system consists of five different sized tubes, each given their name based on the fruit vegetable they are similar to in size, that range between 3 centimeters(cucumber) and 5 centimeters(courgette) in diameter.
The carrot, banana, and turnip make up the rest, decreasing from the carrot. Customers simply pick up the tube, which contains 12 condoms, give it a squeeze, and compare it to the size of their own member, thus finding the perfect size for them.
Speaking to Dezeen, Pan claimed that "studies show that more than 60 per cent of users choose a wrong size while shopping for condom. In addition to discomfort, wrong size selection increases the risk of slippage and rupture
A condom becomes less effective if it is the wrong size, worn on the wrong side, or its tip is not squeezed when worn,’ he added. ‘Each condom comes in a specially designed case with a rising tip, making it easy to remove the condom from the right side while squeezing the tip at the same time."
Pan also noted that condoms are often worn inside out, which not only increases the chance of tearing the latex, but of spillages too. To eradicate this problem these condoms have a flap inside each of their containers which pushes the right side up. Awful handy.
Now, there we go, not one sexual inurendo made in a whole piece about penises and vegetables. We're awful proud of ourselves.
