(Update: Turns out that Durex is not actually bringing out brinjal flavoured condom. According to the Mirror, this was just a publicity stunt to promote safe-sex among younger folks. The stunt was Durex's way of campaigning for the emoji. Well, at least it gave us a few laughs.)
Flavoured, glow-in-the-dark, ringed, ribbed, dotted... you get the drift. Innovation is always the key and, on Monday, showing some out-of-the-box thinking, global condom manufacturer Durex launched an unusually flavoured condom in its "new savoury condom range". Yes, you can now get an eggplant -- or as we Indians call it, brinjal or baingan -- flavoured condom.
The condom manufacturer posted about it on Twitter.
And in no time, our Twitter junta started making baingan ka bharta jokes over and over again.

Today it's baingan. Soon they'll sexualise eggs too. Then, orgy will be replaced by bhurji.— Mihir Bijur (@MihirBijur) September 5, 2016
The funny thing is eggplant itself tastes like rubber. So Durex has launched condom flavoured condoms. Good job.— Sahodaran Mustafa (@sidin) September 5, 2016
Well, one Twitter user has run a poll too.
