About Me

I got the nickname Ron Obvious because -- in addition to being a huge Python fan -- my name really is Ron and I used to start sentences with \"Obviously\" a lot. Obviously, that\'s no longer a problem.

110,000 condoms for Winter Olympics pushes topic of sex in South Korea

News that makes you go hmmmm.....

SEOUL, South Korea As athletes gear up for the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, they'll find some serious protection: condoms, and plenty of them.

South Korean condom manufacturer Convenience Co. is donating 100,000 of its latex rubbers to the athletes' village, while the Korean Association for AIDS Prevention will reportedly furnish another 10,000. It will be the most ever made available at a Winter Games, although the number falls short of the 450,000 distributed during the larger 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio.

While there's been some movement for South Koreans to start talking about a sexual revolution in part because of the widespread use of social media some observers are hoping the attention given to condom use at these games will get the socially conservative country to begin shedding its inhibitions.
