I always knew about oil based products such as vasaline, hand creams, baby oil and the like were bad for condoms. But, i never knew about fatty
The thing is, as noted in the article.
The students blow the condoms up, tying a knot to hold the air in. The next instruction, to get their fingers right into whatever is on the
plate in front of them, gets moans from some, others gamely diving into the crisps or the sausage. The final direction, to rub their fingers all over
the condom balloon, creates hilarity among the spectators as their peers wrestle with the expanded latex. After 30 seconds or so the condoms start
to burst, with screams from some of those watching. For trivia fans, the baby oil condom ruptured first, closely followed by the ones with butter,
sausage roll, lipstick and, after several minutes, the packet of crisps was the final condom to burst.
In the little experiement, they went striaght from touching the foods, to touching the condoms. Normally most people who have just eaten greasy foods
would wash thier hands straight after. Well, i know i would, although some would just suck thier fingers then wipe their hands on their jeans. Would
this have a different effect?
Did they try the experiment with them wiping their hands with a dry cloth after fingering the foods, then trying it again with rinsing their hands
with cold water (without soap) and then hot water (without soap) to see if the outcome was different.
Also, what about oil based soaps?

Is it just me or is this a serious design flaw? Does this include the natural oils on your skin too?
It's been a while since i've read the insert in a box of condoms. Does anyone know if these things have been listed as a warning on the leaflet?
