Peter Ho: “I Always Have My Condoms Ready!”
Is Peter Ho (何潤東) the perfect condom spokesperson? The Taiwanese heartthrob regularly practices safe sex, carrying condoms with him at all times for emergency use.
Born in Los Angeles, the 37-year-old Chinese-American recently filmed a commercial for Okamoto, one of the leading condom manufacturers in the world. At the Hong Kong press conference on March 6, Peter revealed that when he was an university student in Toronto, he picked up the local habit of carrying condoms in his wallet should intimate opportunities crop up. He felt that it was even a gesture of good manners, to be considerate that his girlfriend may otherwise become pregnant if the device were not used.
Peter laughingly admitted that he has even passed a condom onto rumored flame, Janine Chang (張鈞甯). “I treat her like a guy, but she said that she did not have the opportunity to use it. She said she will blow it up like a balloon at a party.” Since they were great friends, Peter was unafraid that Janine would get the wrong idea.
“I’m such an old guy already, so I can’t pretend to be innocent and say that I have never used [a condom]. If I didn’t use them, I”m afraid I would have a bunch of children by now! However, I’ve been busy filming dramas lately, so I didn’t have many opportunities to use them,” Peter said.
Although spotted lingerie shopping with anchorwoman, Yu Sheng (余聲), who was rumored to be his girlfriend, Peter claims that he has been too busy filming to have time to date. Peter’s successful entry into mainland China have led to lucrative earnings of 140 million TWD last year, urging him to continue prioritizing his work first.
