Stolen condoms aren't safe for sex, manufacturer warns thieves

They wouldn’t want children being dragged into the equation now, would they?

CAN’T GET THOSE condoms out of the vending machine?

Blowing it up is NOT the answer.

That’s the message a condom manufacturer is sending to the thieves who opted to resort to explosive measures in order to get what they wanted.

The Local reports that a Ritex condom machine in Aachen, Germany was blown up some time between Sunday night and Monday morning.

A police statement released on Tuesday revealed that a nearby resident heard a “large bang” at around midnight. “The perpetrators must have used a very large firecracker or a homemade explosive. The machine is completely destroyed”, police spokesman Thomas Hinz told N24.

A number of condoms and a sum of money is believed to have been stolen but Ritex isn’t taking the hard line with the offending individuals.

In fact, they’re offering some friendly advice via their spokeswoman:

The condom packaging is likely to have been damaged by the explosion. As soon as the packaging is damaged, the condoms are no longer safe.

Some might go as far as to say they’re a bit of a soft touch.
