The shrivelling oil price has an unexpected bonus – cheaper and safer sex. A fall in the price of crude should result in cheaper condoms – or at least those made sythentically, from materials such as polyurethane, where the price is determined by the market price for oil.
Sexual lubricants could become cheaper too – as “much of the intimacy product market is still dominated by petrochemical- based products” according to Wendy Strgar, -“Loveologist” at Good Clean Love. Patrick Collinson
Technically true, but there’s an awful lot of stuff that is true but not important. The contribution of the crude oil price to the retail cost of a condom is going to be so small as to not even register on retail prices. Nor even, I would guess, on manufacturer’s profit margins.
