Yup, you heard that right. The Malaysian company’s next product aims to spice up your sex life.
In a recent interview with Channel NewsAsia, Karex CEO Goh Miah Kiat said, “The next thing I am trying to work out is a nasi lemak-flavoured condom.”
He continued, “In Malaysia, the first thing we wake up in the morning, we talk about our nasi lemak. So I suppose it is something that will unite us all.”
Goh also shared that the company has spent a lot of money on innovation. Karex’s other quirky designs include glow-in-the-dark condoms, tattoo-inspired textured condoms, and studded condoms (which is said to be a best-seller).
Karex started off as a rubber-processing factory run by Goh’s family. However, the company was forced to diversify after the global commodities crash of the 80s. In order to sustain the business, the family decided to make condoms.
After a rocky first few years, Karex’s business turned around and was listed in 2013 – the same year Goh took over the family company. Now, it is known as a contract manufacturer for well-known condom brands such as Durex and One.
While we love the fragrant smell of coconut rice and the spiciness of sambal, we’re not sure if we want to take it to bed with us.
