A Conversation for Wieners, Frankfurters, Hamburgers and German Naming Conventions


Post 1


I haven't come across pariser being used as slang for a condom [although I'm not surprised], however, the most common use for me is a type of salami?/sausage?, comes in [pun unintended] varieties e.g. pistachio, capsicum and consistes of fine ground meat [cooked] similar to franfurters and about the size and dimnsions of strasberg but with much better flavour. Kids kill for it.

Well, I can confirm: Pariser *is* used for condoms. Or rather, used to be used. I haven't heard it used that much, but I guess almost everybody will understand you are referring to condoms when you talk about Pariser...

Another word that sounds a bit similar is "Präser" - short for "Präservativ," which of course means nothing like "preservative," but quite simply "condom."

which is quite possibly where Pariser comes from?
