€1.50 condoms in Dealz

Would you use these jonathans?

12 for 1.50. Great value if they work. I'm sure they have to pass quality control the same as all the other brands.

I tried tesco own brand but I have the terrible misfortune of being too big for those. At 54mm nominal width, it's just too much of an ask.

I’d use the tyre analogy.
Not worth skrimping on cheap rubber.

I genuinely don't think I'd relax enough to enjoy it.

Years ago, around 2011, they sold packs of JLS condoms for 2 euro like they were marketed at children. So strange.

Maybe they were marketed at paedophiles.

I'm sure a Dealz condom is better than no condom at all, but I'd worry that they might suffer from the 'Tesco problem' that the OP refers to. That said, who pays attention to the brand that they buy from a vending machine?

Mick got a job in a factory producing rubber products. They had 2 manufacturing lines. One producing teats for babies bottles and another producing condoms. On his first day he was being given a tour of the plant. The production manager first showed him the bottle teat line.
He then showed him the condom line. Mick noticed one thing unusual on the condom line. Every so often a device would enter the process while the condoms were full of air and would literally punch a tiny hole in the condom and it would deflate.
Mick raised this with the manager.
Surely he said this can't be right?
No you are right it's not good to have holes in condoms he replies
But it does wonders for the sale of bottle teats.

Don't let a €1.50 bargain turn into 200 grand of child support.

Use the failproof method of contraception: a false name.

Condoms really shouldn't be as expensive as the brand name ones are, I think they prey on the fact that people will think the price reflect quality but I doubt it does, and you're also paying for the marketing and ribbed for her pleasure nonsense.

I'd use them, though Id have lube handy as well as they probably aren't great in that dept.

Lube?

These ladies are not old grannies.
