I am the condom friend ever useful to you

condomTeaching safe sex in India via a singing and dancing group of condoms has all the makings of an entertaining time. This is another one of those cases where something completely hilarious escaped my attention until now. That doesn’t stop me from sharing it with you, because if you haven’t seen it either, it’s new to you!

From The Observers:

A group of Indian campaigners is singing and dancing their way to the glorification of condom use. It’s a crucial fight in their central region, where two percent of the population is HIV positive. And the result – a Bollywood style video clip – is hilarious.

For the past 11 years, P Narsingh Rao, director of Nrityanjali academy, a socio-cultural group based in Hyderabad, has been using the performing arts to promote awareness:

“Our main target groups are people vulnerable to the HIV virus like sex workers, transsexuals or truck drivers. We tour villages in mobile video vans to show the film. The screening is followed by a question and answer session about condom use and sexually transmitted diseases. We also encourage the use of female condoms, a relatively new concept. We tell the women to negotiate the use of female condoms with their male partners: for men with little sex education, the insertion of the female condom in the vagina can in itself be an erotic act.”

Amazingly, this video is 7 minutes long, because I guess a 30 second, “The More you Know” campaign just didn’t get the job done:

And in case you were interested in the full lyrics so you can sing this song to your lady friend:

Lyrics for Condom Song – Telugu

Never forget me I am Nirodh,
I am the condom friend ever useful to you.
Never forget me I am Nirodh,
I am the condom friend ever useful to you.
I am made in different colors with fragrance.
I am made in different colors with fragrance.
I am made in different colors with fragrance.

I am sealed with Lubricant.
Never forget me I am Nirodh,
I am the condom friend ever useful to you.

I come in different colours and called by different names.
I am a shield, I can protect you.
Any brand anywhere I can be bought.
Ask for me in a medical shop.
Also available in “MYTHRI CENTRES” and other shops
I protect you against STI’s
I save everyone from HIV/AIDS

Never forget me I am Nirodh,
I am the condom friend ever useful to you.

Many men and women have used & discarded (unsatisfied) me
Some men and women say I don’t satisfy desire.
I am good-natured and provide satisfaction
I am for you do not neglect me.
I help in stopping unwanted childbirth
I save you and increase your longevity
I remain with you and see that you remain healthy.

Never forget me I am Nirodh,
I am the condom friend ever useful to you.
Never forget me I am Nirodh,
I am the condom friend ever useful to you.

In your youth you become rash and careless
You think no end of yourself
You desire for sex with multiple partners
For momentary sexual pleasure you go to great lengths
You get easily carried away in search of this happiness
You overlook the possibility of STI’s
Oh! My! Look out, you can get HIV/AIDS

Never forget me I am Nirodh,
I am the condom friend ever useful to you.
Never forget me I am Nirodh,
I am the condom friend ever useful to you.

Avoid disaster, leave aside your fears
Remember me, do not get into trouble
Don’t forget to check the date of manufacture
I am quite delicate take care while wearing
Turn deaf ear to others I am very good
You will remain happy without AIDS
The day you forget me you will find yourself in trouble

Never forget me I am Nirodh,
I am the condom friend ever useful to you.
Never forget me I am Nirodh,
I am the condom friend ever useful to you.

Not only for men condoms are available for women
No need to feel shy use one with a smile
Dear, use me while having in sex
Gay people also need to use me.
Using me each time makes me more safe
Oh! Women take care of your health
Oh! Men take care of your health

Never forget me I am Nirodh,
I am the condom friend ever useful to you.
Never forget me I am Nirodh,
I am the condom friend ever useful to you.
I am made in different colors with fragrance.
I am made in different colors with fragrance.
I am made in different colors with fragrance.
