Nearly 1,000 boxes of condoms were snapped up by a crowd of onlookers in northeastern China on Sunday after a young man placed them in a heart shape to successfully win the heart of his chosen woman, Life News reports.

The man knelt on one knee before the woman in a heart fashioned of condom boxes in Harbin, Heilongjiang province, and asked her to be his girlfriend. He held a bunch of G-strings fashioned into flower shapes.

The woman was astonished as he pledged his love and said a man on average only had sex 6,000 times in his lifetime, and he wanted every one of those times to be with her, the report said.

The woman agreed to be his girlfriend and accepted the bouquet to loud cheers from the gathered crowd, before the man told the watchers over a microphone they could take the condoms for free.

The report said that 999 boxes of condoms were taken within 30 seconds.

One young woman was seen leaving with at least seven boxes and an elderly man added some to the basket of his bicycle.

According to the report, the couple then left in a Porsche sports car.

Some Weibo users commented that the most important thing was that the man drove a Porsche, rather than the condom proposal.
