If You Keep Condoms in Your House, Will.I.Am Thinks You’re Tacky

What’s that?  You keep condoms in your house because you’re smart?  You think it’s good to be prepared?  You actually listened in sex ed?  Well, fuck all you heard, because Will.I.Am has spoken some gospel to Elle, and the verdict?  Condoms are OUT!

ELLE: If you walked into a woman’s house, what one item would convince you that you weren’t compatible?

W: If she had condoms in her house, that would just fuckin’ throw me off. That’s just tacky.

ELLE: Well, okay, I could see if she had a candy bowl full of them on the coffee table. But if she’s got a few in a drawer, wouldn’t that simply suggest she’s health-conscious?

W: I just think, like, if you’re into someone and you guys get to that level, then that’s something you should converse about together and say, “Hey, maybe we should get some.”

I was going to do that thing I do where I pretend that Will.I.Am is as wonderful as he thinks he is, but I just don’t have the heart today. Condoms are “tacky,” really?  What an ignorant, careless thing to say.  I don’t need to rant about STDs or unplanned pregnancies, you guys are smart enough to get that, but I just can’t believe that Will is douche enough to say these things in an interview.

Are there any redeeming qualities at all in Will.I.Am anymore, or is he just an annoying, pretentious shell of a man these days?

  • I didn’t take it as him saying condoms themselves were tacky. Just people who have them in their home assuming they’re going to get laid after just meeting somebody.

    Sounds like he would rather actually date somebody for a minute, then decide on the appropriate birth control together, before just mindlessly jumping into the sack with them. That’s still safe sex.

  • i get him. the idea of having condoms in your house if you’re in a relationship is beign safe but if you’re single and you have them it just means your wating to get laid with whomever.
    i guess in this aspect im conservative. i find discusting how people sleep around all the time.

  • Its called being prepared. People might think its tacky, and a bit slutty, but if more people readily had condoms available then I highly doubt so many children would be born, planned or unplanned. I don’t know many men that start making out with a girl, and it starts to progress, and then they stop and don’t follow through because they don’t have a condom.

    What is tacky is that he is only purporting the same old ideology that so many men have. Again, its called being prepared, and KUDOS to the women that buy their own forms of protection and contraceptives; way to take control of your future!

    He’s an idiot.
