    Have you ever wondered what's a condom tester life like? Do you know anybody who does this as a job?

    I didn't even know that job existed, but it does! It doesn't sound any more exciting than trying a new clothes detergent, though LOL

    How, exactly, does one test condoms? Just put ‘em on and see what happens?
    No. The main stability test involves unrolling the condom onto a specialized post and forcing air into it until it expands to 40 liters in size. Then you measure the pressure when the condom bursts.

    What happens after that?
    We give the condoms to live consumers in a market research test – they use them four times and then report back. The fit, the feel, was it a pleasurable experience, was it a negative experience?

    A friend of ours had that job for a while, but he got laid-off.

    We had some condom industry stocks, but decided to pull out.

    When the condom bond market dipped, in order to sell, we had to pay a penalty for premature withdrawal.
