If we followed you home, within 15 minutes, some of your behavior would put your life into an R rating.” Sure enough, I arrived at a dinner party the same night to find everyone talking about something called a “vibrating condom ring.” Surprisingly, the conversation was sparked by a mainstream TV spot by Durex for said ring.
