    As far as the rest goes. Maybe we can have a radar gun in the room to make sure we don't exceed the pumps per second rate of the condom.

    Of course, then we're gonna need condoms for extra wet applications, dry applications, extremely tight tracks and ones that can handle it when the track is loose.

    And then if the track conditions change, say from dry and tight to extra wet and loose then we're gonna have to have condoms that cover multiple applications.

    Although I am not a fan of condoms, they have their time and their place. I would rather not have to spend $10 a condom because Durex or Trojan are passing on the cost of child support settlements and STD treatments they had suddenly became saddled with. Those controversial condom giveaways would be a lot fewer and farther between though

    Seriously, common sense coupled with labeling on the box is sufficient to make one realize that a thin piece of stretched latex coupled with vigorous motion is prone to either breaking, or slipping off.

    NO VOTE, again.
    Its rigged and biased, why the slur against Planned Parenthood ?
    The manufacturers are at 99.999...% , what more do you want ?
    The problem is man, not the manufacturer.

    Or the woman - why isn't she going for a female condom which are more durable and offer better protection and don't get in my visual as much when cruising tube8?

    Come to think of it, how would you prove that the unexpected consequences were from a condom failure and not from going bareback, or form an entirely separate encounter without a condom and then trying to pin your lack of responsibility on the condom manufacturers?

    Maybe they can make condoms with restrictor plates on them.

    And don't slur Al Bundy. He scored 4 TDs in one game, which is more important than anything else in life.

    It's not a slur EW, it's a fact that Planned Parenthood did, years ago, pass out condoms with staples through them. So, the answer is a legitimate one. Had an individual used that condom and become prego then could Planned Parenthood have become liable?

    Before you respond that we all know sex causes pregnancy and it's a risk one takes when participating in even protected sex, let's look at this:

    Ford & Firestone teamed up to build the Ford Explorer and utilize Firestone tires on it. We all know that SUV's are subject to roll-over and traffic crashes are an inherent risk of driving, heck they're an inherent risk of sleeping in your bed if a drunk drives near your house. So, with the knowledge that SUV's are subject to a higher roll-over rate than other types of vehicles and that crashes are an inherent part of operating a motor vehicle, does that get Ford & Firestone of the hotseat for selling the Explorer's with Firestone tires on them that were subject to blow outs causing accidents?

    And curious, how in the heck is this poll rigged? It has a solid no, a solid manufacturer only, a solid manufacturer & retailer and a solid retailer only with an option to bust on Planned Parenthood just for fun.

    Now come on, throw some sugar on your Frosted Flakes and enjoy the debate.

    Re: Is the manufacture responsible for consequential damages if a condom breaks?

    Legally speaking - in rulings of the Supreme Court a common rebuttle gainst manufacturer or provider fault is if they knowingly used inferior materials or methods - the failure of which could have been prevented had they not scrimped or used a lesser quality substance (etc).

    And the courts stlil lean on the reasonableness standard such as was the ruling of the Clam-chowder fish bone. "It is reasonable to expect a smallfish bone ot be present in a fish-dish . . " is basically what it came down to - and that netted in no fault of the business.

    However, McDonald's scorched coffee ruling hinged in the plaintiffs favor because it was proven that McDonald's knew their coffee was over the safety-limit and they chose in numerous situations to not switch out the burners on their pot-systems in countless restaurants. Instead - they chose ot pay fines over the years and negate the fault through negotions with other injured indiviudals with payoffs that were quite.
    They were eventually slammed for skirting the issue.

    ergo why there are some situations where the quality of condoms is a legitimate and tangible concern with evidence - and then there's most people's stories.

    The manufacturer shouldn't be liable. That said, I wouldn't mind a NIST standard for durability. It worries me that I really have no idea have tough the condoms really are when I buy a box.
