The self-proclaimed world’s biggest condom manufacturer, Karex, offer a wide-range of flavored condoms and recently added a ‘nasi lemak’, which translates to ‘fatty rice’, contraceptive to their vast collection.
“We Malaysians are divided across our political ideas, religion and race,” said Karex Chief Executive Goh Miah Kiat.
“I felt one thing that unites us all (is): ‘Where’s the best nasi lemak place you’ve been?'”
Kiat says the controversial flavors are more than just a marketing gimmick, and are actually intended to improve contraceptive use in the Muslim-majority country.
“For me, it’s about public health, and I want to get the message across to people,” Goh said.
The limited edition condom flavor is expected to hit stores in November or December – just in time for the holidays!
