Durex "Announced" Eggplant-Flavoured Condoms And Twitter's Been A Real Dick About It

Don't worry though, they're not real, at least for now...

Earlier today, Durex announced the launch of a new line of products that no one asked for – eggplant-flavoured condoms.

Twitter: @durex

Thankfully for sex-havers everywhere, they aren't ACTUALLY releasing eggplant-flavoured condoms. A spokesperson for Durex told The Mirror that the whole thing was actually a stunt, furthering a campaign to get a condom emoji introduced to promote safe sex.

Indian Twitter, in particular, has been very disapproving of the idea, with the eggplant being the key ingredient in one of the country's most beloved dishes, baingan ka bharta...

The one genuinely indian vegetable according to vir sanghvi's food column this weekend.

Which makes it something people just don't want associated with sex.

Baingan flavoured condoms so good girls can remember mummy and stop the blowjob right there.


I'll never see baingan Ka bharta in the same way ever again.

Some users, of course, took the opportunity to make the obvious puns:

Guy at chemist : give me Aubergine condoms Bengali chemist: Sir,We don't have separate condoms for Bhergins

For moments when you want to make bharta out of his dick 🍆

"Would you like some stuffed baingan?"


Who called it brinjal flavoured condom and not baingan ko bharta

While others had different priorities:

Waiting for Tinda and Beans flavour 😂

Pls launch cucumber flavour too. Thanks.


This post has been updated to reflect that these disgusting-sounding condoms are thankfully not real.
