I wouldn't necessarily make that assumption.

I'm curious to know what, exactly, a condom shop is? I've certainly never seen one....it implies a store that sells condoms. They're usually just in an aisle at any given store or pharmacy around here.

OMG, I've done a search.....

There used to be a store in NYC called Condomania, they sold more than condoms though.

I hope they'll back off of that since the CDC is leaning away from the whole pandemic thing- finally. More people die yearly from "regular" strains of flu.

This was maybe due to the woman in TX who died, but I heard they stopped short of saying it was due to Swine Flu. She apparently had other pre-existing conditions. Very sad...condolences to her family.

So far all reports of people who have died from swine flu either a.) Didn't have access to adequate healthcare (the poor in Mexico), or b.) Had pre-existing conditions that would make them more susceptible to ANY strain of flu

It's the most laughable excuse not to do a meet and greet than I can imagine. Do they not venture into other parts of society where people gather? There are never guarantees anyway that a person in a meet and greet won't have something you can catch off sharing a pen, holding their camera etc. :roll:

Well - here's hoping that now that the hysteria has worn off, the management will ease up on the guys and let them out in public again :roll:

We were driving on Harry Hines Blvd. in Dallas last year where they have a lot of those kinds of shops, and my brother-in-law joked that it should more accurately be called "Harry Heiney Blvd." :lol: So that's what it is from now on in our family. :D

I thought the same thing about the condom shops. A store that sells nothing but condoms? Strange. But if they sell more than that, I would just call it an adult store or sex shop.

There's only one I could think of nearby called The Toy Box. They sell mostly sex toys and porn. But I'm sure they sell a variety of condoms too. And penis shaped candy (I remember my friend buying this).
