But here's the more serious problem: Instead of providing a double layer of impenetrable latex, the friction between the condoms would increase the chance of both prophylactics tearing, and then where are you? That's right, getting phone calls to be on a MTV reality show, and not one where you stay in a free beach house and party all the time.
