Something for the weekend?

‘Something for the weekend sir?’ This is a phrase that was commonly used in late 19th & early 20th century and now it’s a phrase that is pretty much extinct. When latex condoms were first Invented in 1855 the most practical place for them to be sold was at the barbershop, a place where gents would feel comfortable purchasing them in their own environment.
It was a phrase a barber would say to his client or vice versa when they wanted to purchase a condom with out making a big song and dance about it! For example a client would say to his barber “I’ll have a haircut, shave & something for the weekend please” when it came paying the barber for the haircut & shave the barber would then hand the chap a condom.
Obviously this way of purchasing condoms eventually died out when condoms became more widely available to purchase in supermarkets etc, But at Bugsy’s we think it’s such a brilliant idea and we love traditional barbering values! And that is the exact reason Bugsy’s Gentleman’s Barber have teamed up with NHS & Northamptonshire sexual health C-card scheme to help promote sex safe to everyone in the area, we now supply condoms to you gents, so don’t be embarrassed to come in and talk to us about it, you’re in the perfect gentleman’s environment!
