Why are they giving out 2 years supply, every couple of months?

For some of us, that's just a good couple weeks up the nightingale.

I'm mostly bemused about their believe in labels. They must have seen some chinese knockoffs in their time?

iPhone apps

Since won't allow any iPhone apps for sex, owners wouldn't have a clue what to do with a condom.
