Being a Condom Tester is a Hard Job

    Durex(R) is Looking for Qualified Canadians to Fill the Position - are you
    up for it?

    TORONTO, Oct. 22 /CNW/ -- Canadians like to leave work at the office, but
being a condom tester is one job you will want to take home and straight to
the bedroom.  Durex is looking for a few lucky Canadians to do, quite
possibly, the world's best job -- testing their products.  To get the job done
it's as easy as logging onto
    "Durex(R) wants condom users to not only have safe sex, but to also have
fun," says Stephen Mare, Brand Manager, Durex Consumer Products.  "What better
way to make sure that our condoms are meeting the needs of Canadians than to
ask Canadians first-hand?  We know Canucks are up for it!"
    Canadians are encouraged to apply for the volunteer position starting
today until November 4, 2008.  Applicants will be asked a series of questions
to make sure they are a good fit for this dream job.  Questions include how
often do you use condoms? and why do you want to be a Durex(R) condom tester?
    Applications will then be reviewed, and the lucky chosen 1,000 Canadian
condom testers will be sent a supply of Durex products, including vibrating
rings, lubricants and assorted condoms, so they can get down to business.  The
condom testers are then asked to provide Durex(R) with feedback about
performance -- product performance that is.  For all their hard work, one
lucky tester will be randomly selected and rewarded with a $1,000 cash bonus.
    Eager Canadians can get a leg up and apply early.  Applications will be
accepted from October 22, 2007 through November 4, 2007.  There are 1,000
positions open to residents of Canada, men and women, age 18 and over.
Selected applicants will be notified via e-mail.
