Q: Why do supermarkets sell condoms with candy at the counter?

So people can pick them up secretly on their way out?

I mean...think about the kids!

Maybe it's required by the one child policy ...

Maybe because if they are located elsewhere, no one will pay for them but still take them.

Small and fun, just like sweets...easy to forget but when you see them you want them, just like sweets....A good place to remind people to pick up a pack before they leave the shop....

Since there's no sex ed taught, then children being the most likely to notice their surrounds will notice what's around their candy. So they will at least know condoms exist.

This is better than having them behind the counter like in some shops. I'm sure many people are too embarrassed to have to ask for them. I just don't see why some shops do that. It's better if they are somewhere visible and easily reachable like by the counter (but not behind it).

The do that in Canada too. Though in China they have a much larger display. But the three packs are available in Canada at the checkout.

  Damn, I thought that 'was' candy. Guess I should have twigged when I blew a bubble the size of a medicine ball and it didn't pop.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
