Despite their Condom Museum, the town of Condom would like you to know that they do not make condoms.

A maker of condoms purported to be from the town of Condom in southwestern France has been ordered to pay 10,000 euros ($12,600) for false advertising after the provenance of its prophylactics was found to be Malaysia.

“The Original Condom Company” advertised its condoms as coming from the picturesque forested town on the river Baise.

However a court in the city of Bordeaux has ordered the firm, run by two Frenchmen, to remove references to the town from its advertising, as only an unoccupied address could be found there.

In addition to boldly claiming on its website to be headquartered in Condom, France, “The Original Condom Company” says it’s the “first luxury condom.” Buyers can purchase single condoms, packs of three, or packs of six — which come in a jet-black, engagement ring-like box with gold lettering.
