Former Newcastle and Colombian international Faustino “Tino” Asprilla has confirmed what everybody already knew: He’s producing a line of flavored condoms.
It’s true. They’re in production in China, and will be branded with his nickname, “Tino.”
“I think it’s a really cool idea, “ he said on Colombian radio station La FM, via The Guardian. “They’ll hopefully be launched with a campaign to prevent unplanned teenage pregnancies.”
For those curious about which flavored condom Tino himself would vouch for … “I’ll recommend the guava flavor condom,” Asprilla suggested, via The Guardian.
“When I was growing up, we had a guava tree in our garden and that’s a flavor and aroma that’s very good for romancing.”
Who knew!? As easy as it is to joke about the premise, Tino does seem to have good intentions at heart.
"The main goal for me, really, is to support a campaign to prevent AIDS and teen pregnancies, with a line of condoms," he said via Metro.
But, Tino had better beware of his competition in South America. Don’t forget: Ronaldinho also has a line of prophylactics on the market.
