You know how some people can be sooo hard to shop for? Well, Spoon & Tamago has found the ultimate gift for the condom enthusiast in your life: Japan's new condom cookbook, which was written to raise awareness about protected sex.

The ebook, whose title roughly translates to "Condom Meals I Want to Make For You," covers nearly a dozen recipes that utilize the humble condom in their preparation or storage. The recipes are diverse, ranging from condom cookies to condom sushi to condom escargot cooked in butter. 

Mmmm, condom sushi.
  • Mmmm, condom sushi.

It's all meant to raise awareness of safe sex in Japan, where rates of STDs, and especially AIDS, are on the rise because many young Japanese aren't using condoms. No doubt someone, somewhere, will find the recipe for a meat-stuffed condom appropriate for something.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
