Literality and fertility in agrarian Korea.

"When we talked about condoms, we would show how to use them on a stick," says Shin, grabbing the golf club from the corner of his office to demonstrate. "But one day I went to a village and there were these condoms hanging on the fence posts. So I asked why they were there. The woman replied that after they had finished doing 'what married people do', they had put the condoms on the sticks as contraception.
