an American in Germany: a blog about culture, language, society

You maybe think this looks like a normal vending machine. Chocolate. Pretzels. Gum. But then you see the ad on the side..."Schwanger? 'maybe baby' paket...über 99% zuverlässig...hier erhältlich." Yes, this vending machine also sells pregnancy tests (and condoms, by the way, upon closer inspection of the actual contents). And yes, the brand is called "maybe baby".
Another sign of German culture...and perhaps an openness about sexuality you don't have in American culture?!
