At one point or another along your young sexual awakening the thought of using a plastic bag as a form of birth control over a condom, in a pinch, may have crossed your mind.
But just how dumb of an idea would that be?
Well, thanks to a Vietnamese virgin couple, we now know just how bad an idea using a plastic bag for a condom is.
From the Mirror:
The unnamed duo, who were having intercourse for the first time, were treated in hospital for genital lesions, abrasions and bleeding.
Doctor Nguyen The Luong, deputy director of Hanoi Kidney Hospital, said that the couple were both college students, reports news site Tuoi Tre .
He said the male was too shy to go out and buy condoms.
Luckily the two love birds have been put on antibiotics and should recover just fine.
Dr. Luong told the Mirror that the problem with using a plastic bag for protection during sex is the lack of lubrication and elasticity, which can cause cuts, scratches and even vaginal tearing.
Guess these two never heard the birds and the bees story growing up…
