The Far East is on a damn roll this month! First, a tripped out animated music videos from South Korea. Now, the Japanese putting out a cookbook on how to cook with condoms. I can’t read Japanese so I can’t be sure, but I don’t think they actually EAT the condoms in the end, just use them like a spermicidal flavored quesadilla or burrito wrap to hold the food in. It was conceived as a way to make the population more aware of prophylactics, to prevent the spread of STD’s and unwanted pregnancies. Let me tell you something though, if you start using this cookbook and making these meals for your dates you will start buying condoms and having them in your possession, which will hopefully lead to safe sex! The bad news: Any self respecting person who sees their date cooking with condoms is going to get so far out of Dodge they’re going to have one of those cartoon dust trails behind them.
No Sex = No STD’s or Unwanted Pregnancies
So I guess you win Japan?
Hit the jump for some delicious entrees
Author’s Note: I have used a Strawberry flavored condom once (wearing one, not having it used on me), and although it made the room smell like sex and strawberry afterwards it’s not any sort of smell/flavor I would want my food marinating in.
