To help raise awareness of a condom's functionality, two Japanese authors have put together a recipe book that uses them as part of the food preparation process — the condoms are not meant to be eaten. Reportedly, the recipes are real and actually reproducible.
In the past several years condom usage in Japan has continued to fall, resulting in a dramatic rise in cases of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. In fact, a 2008 global survey * put Japan in bottom 3rd for condom usage, despite estimates that the country produces between 20-30% of all condoms. So to help raise awareness for condoms in Japan, and close the gap between producer and user, Japanese author? Kyosuke Kagami and Opanpon have co-written a book that incorporates condoms into one of Japan’s most beloved customs: cooking.
