Will.i.am and condoms  

snippet of interview:

ELLE: If you walked into a woman’s house, what one item would convince you that you weren’t compatible?
W: If she had condoms in her house, that would just fuckin’ throw me off. That’s just tacky.

ELLE: Well, okay, I could see if she had a candy bowl full of them on the coffee table. But if she’s got a few in a drawer, wouldn’t that simply suggest she’s health-conscious?
W: I just think, like, if you’re into someone and you guys get to that level, then that’s something you should converse about together and say, “Hey, maybe we should get some.” Another pet peeve is wet sinks.

ELLE: Wet sinks?
W: Yeah, like a wet sink. You don’t wipe the sink after you use it? Dry it off! And if she’s got only dry toilet paper and no baby wipes next to the toilet. You ain’t got no baby wipes?

ELLE: I’ve heard about this particular deal breaker before. Why is that a big deal to you?
W: Here’s proof on why people should have baby wipes. Get some chocolate, wipe it on a wooden floor, and then try to get it up with some dry towels. You’re going to get chocolate in the cracks. That’s why you gotta get them baby wipes.

OK, dude's clearly got some issues with the old model of women being sluts if they're sexually active. And it's a pretty picture he's got in his head of this nice conversation and making a plan to get them and so on. But human nature is to get all turned on and just go for it--hence condoms on hand as a way to be safe no matter what. Besides, what if the guy has been carrying his one condom in his wallet for ages and the package is so creased you're pretty sure that the condom is not going to hold up. They're kind of sensitive to things like pressure and temperature over time. Plus, wouldn't you like more than one?

I say, if the guy is offended that you have condoms, perhaps he's the one that needs to be dumped. Just sayin'.

Oh, good lord in heaven. I feel sorry for any female interested in him.

I have to pop up and say I LOVE your icon!

Thanks! I forgot where I got it from. It's my favorite for examples of stupidity. :-)

It's weird what people are raised with and then they think that is the ONE TRUE WAY to be clean. :)

Wow-any guy that is this picky about my BATHROOM is NEVER gonna end up in my bed.

Leaving the condom part alone for a bit, because I agree with you:

A wet sink?? REALLY?? Clearly this man is way to much of a neatnick for me....

I dunno-maybe he's just talking about the rim/apron area....

I won't mention the baby wipes; he's got a (minor) point, but who leaves them out, if they don't actually have a baby? If he expects his woman to be this clean, what does he want her to do-douche with Lysol?

And for a man who raps about tits and ass as much as him, I wonder how clean he can possibly be with all of that sleeping around he claims to do. A lack of baby wipes in a woman's bathroom should be the least of his health concerns.

Besides, has he heard of travel packs. :)

condoms are just tacky???

Depends on the brand I suppose. Trojans would be ok, but the funky supposedly strawberry flavored ones from Spencer Gifts? That might be a dealbreaker with soem guys.

well, you're right. i can't use latex condoms because i'm severely allergic to latex - they have to be natural lambskin, which are expensive, or those stupid vinyl ones, which are their own kind of horror ...
