A strange "rubber" table

Took this picture in the "Cabbages & Condoms" Thai restaurant in Kyoto. The original in Thailand was set up as a way to promote contraceptives, remove the stigma attached to them, and make them as easy to buy as cabbages...allegedly. Other than the strange table, and the equally strange pictures on the wall (of which I didn't take a picture alas), the food was pretty good!I guess they have these restaurants in other countries too?

I didn't notice if the table was all movey-about-ey. Alas, we were sitting on the table next to it, which was one of the (more) normal tables.

The restaurant also had some great souveneirs on sale, such as a glass paperweight with a condom set inside it. And I guess you can guess what they had by the counter instead of the normal after dinner mints (as a clue, something not edible, but potentially flavoured...errrr...)
