  • Decent Episode But Honestly there's too much Gross And Disgusting Moments.

    I Have to say this is a good episode, But what really caught my eye was the Gross sex talk and Footage, and Not in a good way.

    When i saw this episode i thought it was going to be good just like most south park episodes but it looked more disgusting then hilarious, I swore to myself that i would never watch this episode ever again, but besides that i really liked this episode, the battle scene was probably my favorite part of the episode.

    ill give it a 6.0/10moreless
  • superb

    What I liked: Garrison and the kindergarten class going over different sex positions/moves he had taught them, the camera panning to him when Chef says 'creepy pervert', the girls and boys waging war, the girls upset because the boys weren't wearing condoms, 'red rocket', amongst other things.

    Besides Mackey and Choksondick having sex (that scene is disgusting), this was a pretty funny episode. That one scene is the only thing I did not like, the rest was really nice, so my final grade is going to be a B or so, I think is fairmoreless
  • Have to say this has got to be my favourite South Park episode. There are plenty of great episodes but this one has to be up there with the best.

    This episode really has some of the best gags going. Starting off with the whole milking the dog/red rocket scene the episode just builds and builds. Best lines............................

    Mr. Mackey: I'm pretty sure I took...yeah I took the penis and I...well what the hell did I do with that damn thing?

    Butters: Oh it's sticky.

    Butters: Just walk away, you can put a stop to all this. Just walk away and we will spare your lives. Just walk away.

    Chef: But if you leave it up to the schools to teach sex to kids, you don't know who they're learning it from. It could be someone who doesn't know. Someone who has a bad opinion of it. Or even a complete pervert.

    Mr Garrison: What, why did you pan to me just now, what the hell's that supposed to mean?

    Stan: But Chef, when is the right age for us to start having sex?

    Chef: It's very simple children. The right time to start having sex is...17.

    Kyle: 17?

    Chef: 17.

    Sheila Broflovski: So you mean 17 as long as you're in love?

    Chef: Nope, just 17.

    Gerald Broflovski: But what if you're not ready at 17?

    Chef: 17, you're ready.

    Mr Garrisons voice over the final credits.

    Best scene............................

    When Mr Mackey and Ms Choksondik start going for it, the shot with Mr Mackeys scrawney butt popping up from the bottom of the screen is just great.


    Great episode, should be much higher on the list of top South Park episodes.moreless
  • Proper Condom Use

    A highly hilarious episode, spilled over with gigantic laughs and superb characters involved with the season five treat. If there was ever a fantastic and entertaining episode, then this Proper Condom Use would be an example.

    Though not the best episode, this certainly shows a triumph as Mr. Mackey finally indulges in some good old buckaroo with that creepy crawly Ms. Choksondik. Before she dies later in South Park, I mean.

    So, I enjoyed this episode. I hope ya do too. And to be honest, fair's fair. This sure is a hell of a laughing out loud episode

    ;D Enjoyable and superb !moreless
  • "The right time to start having sex is...seventeen."

    Here is my review for this good episode of "South Park". It is called "Proper Condom Use". It is about the children of South Park Elementary being taught sexual education after Stan was caught beating off his dog Sparky (He didn't even know that what he was doing was sexual, especially because it was Cartman and Kenny that taught him how to do it). The boys of fourth grade were being taught by Mr. Mackey (who was having a lousy time teaching them, since he knew nothing about sex), while the girls of fourth grade were being taught by Ms. Choksondik (who was scaring all the girls by telling them all the negative things about sex). The girls believe that all the boys need to wear condoms when they hang out with them, so they get condoms and wear them. But then, when the teachers learn what is happening, they decide to teach sex-ed to the kindergarteners. When the boys learn that they don't need to wear the condoms, they believe the girls were to blame, and they battle each other ala "Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior". When the adults see what happens, they learn that it wasn't at all right for the children to be taught sex-ed at a young age, as Chef tried to tell them earlier in this episode. The first time I saw this episode, I thought it was the episode "Cartmanland", because of it opening with Stan and Kyle torturing an action figure of Jennifer Lopez (until I saw how they tortured it). I really liked this episode ever since I saw it on TV, and I still like watching it now that I have it on DVD. It's very, very good.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (13)

    • When Cartman says "Red Rocket", his mouth moves but he doesn't speak.

    • Mr. Adler, the shop-class teacher reappears in this episode. It is the first time he appears since "Tweek vs. Craig."

    • Hepatitis actually is not considered an STD, contrary to what Ms. Choksondick said.

    • The hospital in South Park is called "Hell's Pass Hospital." The ambulance seen in the background says "South Park Hospital" on it.

    • Why didn't Mr. Mackey's head deflate like it did in "Ike's Wee-wee" when he took off his tie? He said that he had no self-esteem, so it couldn't be symbolism that gives him a swelled head.

    • It is impossible for a boomerang to cut through the skull like that. With weight-to-density ratios, bone is harder than wood, and so the boomerang would crack well before it split Kenny's skull.

    • When Mr. Mackey is talking to the boys, he is standing in front of the projector, but the picture does not show up on his face.

    • Mr. Mackey said he hasn't done "it" in a very long time (like 12 years or something), but in "Ike's Wee Wee" he does "it" with that one chick when he was high. The reason he doesn't remember doing it is the fact that he was high.

    • Although Sky One banned this episode, it once had a trailer that contained clips from this episode.

    • The words "Sexually transmitted diseases" appear on the chalkboard before Miss Chokesondick writes them (in the closeup shot) and in the wide shot, they disappear.

    • This episode hasn't aired on the British channel, "Sky".

    • Mr. Mackey said he never had sex since like college, but in fingerbang, he was getting kinky with Cartman's mom.

    • In episode 204 "Ike's Wee Wee," Mr. Mackey's head shrunk back to normal size when he took off his tie. In this episode however, his head stays the same when he's going to have sex with Ms. Choksondick.

  • QUOTES (21)

    • Mr. Mackey: Penis or vagina! Right, oral sex. Mmkay.

    • Ms. Choksondick: Here's a little picture of Herpes...
      (She shows the picture and the girls scream.)
      Ms. Choksondick: And here's a little Syphilis for you...
      (She shows another picture and the girls scream again.)
      Ms. Choksondick: That's right; unless you get your boyfriends to wear condums, you can AND will get these diseases!

    • Sheila: I think my boy does need to learn about sexual education………from the school.

    • Cartman: That's what it's called when you milk a dog; Beating it off. God, don't you guys know anything?

    • Stan: Cartman, what the hell are you doing?
      Cartman: I'm milking the dog. They make dog milk.

    • Stan: Don't look at Butters' schlong, gaymo!
      Cartman: (in panicking voice) I wasn't looking as his schlong, I was seeing how to put the condom on!
      Kyle: Sure.

    • Butters: Oh geez, I don't wanna get the AIDS fellas.

    • Mr. McCormick: Yeah, why just this afternoon our son was caught beating off our dog.

    • (Stan & Kyle torture a Jennifer Lopez doll)
      Stan: So, we meet again, Jennifer Lopez!
      Kyle: (voicing Jennifer Lopez) No, no, please! This time I swear I won't make albums or movies.
      Stan: That's what you said last time, but obviously we must now resort to more drastic measures.
      (uses magnifying glass to burn the doll)
      Kyle: (voicing Jennifer Lopez) Oh God it burns! It burns!
      Stan: Scream for me, bitch!

    • Cartman: Just tell them that if they leave town peacefully, we won't have to resort to violence.
      Butters: [wearing mask; deep voice] Just walk away. You can put a stop to all this. Just walk away and we will spare your lives. Just walk away.
      Kyle: [to Stan] Man, he's pretty good.

    • Stan: But Chef, when IS the right time for us to start having sex?
      Chef: It's very simple, children; The right time to start having sex is…seventeen.
      Kyle: Seventeen?
      Chef: Seventeen.
      Sheila: So, you mean seventeen as long as you're in love?
      Chef: Nope, just seventeen.
      Gerald: But what if you're not ready at seventeen?
      Chef: Seventeen. You're ready.

    • Ms. Choksondik: Alright girls. Yesterday we went over the myriad of diseases you can get from boys, but today we're going to talk about the most horrible they can give you of all. Pregnancy!

    • Filmore: Can we do fingerpaint?
      Mr. Garrison: No, we can't do fingerpaint! You kids wanna get herpes? Huh? How about a nice bucket of AIDS? Sound good?

    • Cartman: Butters, will you stop filibustering?

    • Chef: Hello there, children.
      Boys: Hey, Chef.
      Chef: How is sexual-education class coming?
      Stan: It's dumb. Mister Mackey didn't teach us nothing.
      Chef: Yeah, I don't think ol' Mackey knows a hymen from a hysterectomy. And Ms. Choksondik? I'd be surprised she's ever been laid in her life.
      Kyle: Yeah. Chef, what's "laid"?
      Chef: Oh, nothing. Now move along, children, you're holding up the line.

    • Ms. Choksondik: You think that sex is about fun and games and love? Wrong! Sex is about disease!

    • [Mr. Mackey doesn't know about sex]
      Stan: Dude, haven't you ever had intercourse, Mr. Mackey?
      Mr. Mackey: Well, sure I have! It's just I was about 19 at the time, so it's been about 21 years, m'kay. Let's see, uh, I'm pretty sure I took the -. Yeah I took the penis, and I but what the hell did I do with that damned thing?

    • Sharon: Stanley, what the hell are you doing?
      Stan: I'm beating off the dog.

    • Stan: I had no idea dogs made milk. Do it again.
      Cartman: Dumbass, you can only milk a dog once every few hours. It doesn't work if you beat off the dog again right away.

    • Chef: Look, schools are teaching condom use to younger and younger students each day! But sex isn't something that should be taught in textbooks and diagrams. Sex is emotional and spiritual. It needs to be taught by family. I know it can be hard, parents, but if you leave it up to the schools to teach sex to kids, you don't know who they're learning it from. It could be from someone who doesn't know, [pans to Mr. Mackey] someone who has a bad opinion of it, [pans to Ms. Choksondik] or even a complete pervert. [pans to Mr. Garrison]
      Mr. Garrison: What? Why did you pan to me just now? What the hell is that supposed to mean?

    • Sharon: Stanley, do you know why we grounded you for a month?
      Stan: No.
      Randy: Beating off the dog is never appropriate when we have company over. (glances at Sharon) I mean EVER! Beating off the dog is never appropriate ever!

  • NOTES (5)


    • Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior:

      Butters: Just Walk Away

      Butters delivers a warning to the girls to "just walk away" this speech is from the 1981 film Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, and Butters is also wearing a mask like 'The Humungus,' the man delivering the speech in that film.
