To Sleep with Your Own Girlfriend In Venezuela Will Cost You £500 (READ WHY)





In Venezuela it costs a month’s wages just to get it on with your girlfriend or boyfriend.

That’s because packets of condoms are priced at an astronomical £500.

And that’s when you can find them at all.

To make things worse, this shortage isn’t just a matter of lots of sexually frustrated guys and girls knocking about.


Abortion is illegal in the Roman Catholic country, which also has one of South America’s highest rates of HIV infection.

Experts say the shortage will lead to more teenage pregnancies and deaths.

Prices of johnnies have sky-rocketed as a result of a weakened economy and a turbulent political situation.

People have to queue for hours to get their hands on other imports, such as medicines, nappies, deodorant, and some foods.

One resident, Jonatan Montilla, told Bloomberg: ‘The country is so messed up that now we have to wait in line even to have sex. This is a new low.’

The shortage means some sites are cashing in, with auction website MercadoLibre selling a 36-pack of Trojans for 4,760 bolivars (about £500).

This is nearly as much as the minimum monthly wage.

Gynecologist Carlos Cabrera, vice president of the local branch of International Planned Parenthood Federation, warned that the lack of condoms would mean more women dying in back street abortion clinics.

He told Bloomberg: ‘An unwanted teenage pregnancy is a mark of government’s failure: failure of its economic, public health and educational policy.’
