Durex’s Real Feel condom, which is facing some real heat over a defective batch, is now in damage control mode after outrage on social media.
Batches were recalled in Germany, UK and Singapore after they failed in durability test. After lawsuit threat over unwanted pregnancy from many Durex users, the company today announced that it will pay for the upbringing of kids born due to defective condoms.
While speaking to Faking News a company spokesperson said, “Family planning is a serious issue. And if our defective condoms tosses this planning out of the window, then we take full responsibility.”
The spokesperson however refused to divulge the quantum of amount that will be paid. Many users heaved a collective sigh of relief at the announcement. Ravi Choudhary, 22 year old computer programmer from UK, used the condom for the first time and was shocked after finding out it was defective. “It was my first time. And wanted to get the ‘real feel’. Honestly the condom felt invisible when I rolled it over my manhood. I was apprehensive about its durability and now I am concerned about the ramifications,” he said.
“I don’t want to fall into the paternity trap so soon. Paying for kids education is not going to help,” he added while speaking about the company’s move to mitigate the crisis.
Meanwhile, the company is doing it’s bit to investigate the defect and also urged users to be gentle while making love in order to prevent the condom from bursting.
