Some notoriously loved or hated foods may act as aphrodisiacs (oysters, anyone?) but last time we checked, we didn’t think an eggplant was one of them. However, this didn’t stop condom brand Durex from launching eggplant-flavoured protection.
The eggplant emoji is used as a symbol for male private parts by the young’uns, seeing as there’s no emojis featuring x-rated body parts.
There’s no doubt this inspired the very weird flavour choice, but Twitter still was left floored by the announcement.
However, it turns out it was all a big ploy to promote safe sex and cheekily request that a condom emoji be added to the collection. Well played, Durex, well played.
