George Soros Bets Big on Female Condoms

Jewish billionaire and philanthropist George Soros tends to cast his lot with controversial political causes, like the ongoing AIPAC-JStreet battle royale or, more recently, California’s unsuccessful Proposition 19 .

But the Hungarian-born hedge-fund manager is still a businessman. Soros Fund Management revealed some new investments last week, including a rather curious 5.1 percent — 1.3 million share — stake in UK-based The Female Health Co. , which manufactures the FC2 Female Condom . If you’re so inclined, do check out the highly-British, and somewhat graphic, informational cartoon .

We can only speculate what Soros sees in the FC2, which promises “pleasure points for her and him to tease, please, and protect.” But c’mon, do you really expect an 80-year-old to stand in line at his local pharmacy with a pack of Trojans?
