I listened to an interesting podcast today about the many different uses of condoms in Cuba.
Because of how poor the country is and the deficiencies they have in many resources, many savvy Cubans have found alternative uses for condoms to perform other tasks.
Blowing up the condoms with air to ask as a buoy for fishing. Yes. There are floating condoms in the water.
Some people use the lubricant of the condoms to help polish their cars.
The elasticity and durability of the condoms can help repair certain plumbing-type issues.
Condoms are so cheap in Cuba because they are subsidized by the government. Savvy Cubans have thus found numerous ways to take advantage of these rubber products.
But still, when an interviewer asked a male Cuban what his favorite use of the condom is, he still replied: “the original use”
“It has never been so cheap to perform the country’s national sport”
