When Roses Aren't Enough To Say "I Want to Hump You"


You probably don't want to give this gift to that special someone after your first date. But then again, who knows? Nothing breaks that pre-coitus awkwardness better than a properly timed box of condoms.

This Valentine's Day Planned Parenthood of St. Louis is encouraging lovers to eschew the traditional bouquet of roses for a gift basket of prophylactics. For a $25 donation to Planned Parenthood, the organization will send your special friend four packages of Proper Attire condoms, some chocolate and a hand-written note letting the person know he (or she) is in your thoughts -- your dirty, dirty thoughts.

At $25 a pop the offer might appeal to cheapskates as well as Lotharios. Come V-Day you'll be hard-pressed to find a dozen roses for any where near that price.
