Need A "Clinton" or "Lewinsky"?
A rubber company in China has begun marketing condoms under the brand names Clinton and Lewinsky. The Guangzhou Rubber Company began handing out 100,000 free Clinton and Lewinsky condoms as a promotion. According to Liu Wenhua, spokesman for the company, "The Clinton condom will be the top of our line....The Lewinsky condom is not quite as good." The company chose the names because most Chinese consumers viewed former president Bill Clinton as a responsible person who would want to stress safe sex as a means to prevent the spread of HIV. When will the Clinton and Lewinsky make their way to the US?
