Seven Condoms Don't Equal 21 Orgasms, German Court Rules on Ads

  • Berlin startup's joke wrappers could mislead users, court says
  • Medical guidelines say condoms should only be used once: court

Even when selling condoms, you better get your math right: seven can’t equal 21.

A Dusseldorf court told Berlin-based startup Einhorn Products GmbH that it cannot use ads that claim a package with seven condoms can bring as many as 21 orgasms. While recognizing that the company was joking, the judges banned the slogan because it could mislead consumers into thinking you can use a condom more than once, contrary to medical guidelines.
