Coronavirus baby boom? It’s likely as America braces for Condom Shortage
The Coronavirus seems to be the only thing people can talk about these days. With many countries enacting lockdowns and curfews, getting well acquainted with your home is at an all-time high. For those who live with roommates, the practice of social distancing means avoiding them at all costs.
For another segment of the population, coronavirus may actually lead to an unexpected result. Dating, engaged, and/or married couples now have copious amounts of free time to explore other forms of cardio. And while the demand for hand sanitizers and soap has increased, bored couples without anywhere to escape have gone on a search to find a famous rubber.
Condoms have long been viewed as the gold standard for those looking to have fun without an unexpected surprise 9 months later. An inexpensive product, the value of condoms is measured by its performance and ability to prevent the spread of infections. Although there are Trojan man jokes and educational videos stressing the importance of using condoms, it doesn’t mean that couples will heed this advice.
In Australia, a woman named Thanh Thai, shared a picture of practically empty shelves in the condom section of a store. Due to a combination of panic buying and sheer boredom, condoms could soon be the next thing to run in short supply.
What does this mean? It could mean nothing or it could signal the beginning of the baby boomers part two. For those not familiar with the term “baby boomer” it defines any individual born between 1946 and 1964 and occurred as a result of soldiers returning from World War II. Let’s just say they got busy very quickly.
And while the coronavirus is not causing a war, it has resulted in people staying indoors for weeks at a time. Netflix, board games, and reading are welcome distractions from the horrors of the outside world but it’s also hard to resist the laws of nature.
With hundreds of sex-based studies floating around the internet, it is hard to tell how many times the average person has sex per week. That being said, if you take the grueling schedule of work out of the equation, it can be inferred that most people will be more inclined to take advantage of their free time.
More importantly, they’ll finally have the energy! Energetic people like having sex and sex often leads to babies.
It’s simple math.
