Johnny be good?

A NEWCASTLE law student has embarked on a lucrative new career as a condom tester, much to the envy of his fellow undergraduates.

According to reports, Dave Chapman, 22, will be paid 100 for each variety of condom he and his girlfriend test out and the pair will be expected to try out 30 different types of contraception.

Chapman, who has been employed by German condom manufacturer Condomi, is one of 10 testers, and beat off stiff competition from 10,000 other hopefuls.

A Condomi spokesperson said they had picked “fairly adventurous-sounding people” to test-drive their products, but had also homed in on students because “they generally need the cash”.
