Adelaide nightclub slammed over 'gross' condom giveaway

An Adelaide nightclub’s attempt at getting more punters in the door with a bizarre condom giveaway has left potential patrons confused and disgusted.

The Dog and Duck club took to Facebook on Friday to declare condoms were being given away at the door all weekend, adding that those who brought them them back “used” next weekend would receive half-priced entry.

The post quickly drew a raft of comments from repulsed viewers.

“What the actual f**k,” one person wrote.

“Wtf that’s so gross,” another added.

“Yuck that’s disgusting, never going there again,” someone else said.

A number of concerned people claimed the nightclub was recklessly putting both female patrons and staff at risk.

"This is so vile, promotes sexual harassment and assault and is super dangerous to anyone working at the venue - especially women," one person told 7News.

"It's disgusting and appalling they would do this," another said.

"It seems like if people follow through with it staff could be exposed to bodily matter and STIs."

However, since the backlash the nightclub told 7News the promo is not actually real and was meant to be a joke.

A spokesperson from the Dog and Duck added that the poster which was put on Facebook “clearly says a promo not well thought through”.

The club added that it had intended for the fake promo to create a lot of engagement but the actual outcome had “gone mental”.

In a follow-up Facebook post, the Dog and the Duck confirmed it was not giving out free condoms, that “sex safe is a winner” and it was “sorry not sorry,” before adding: “Never take life too serious”.
