Tiger Woods Plays Trojan Horse

Believe it or not, this is not part of a Tiger Woods Trojan endorsement deal. It’s a condom statue of him that was created to promote birth control and safe sex in Thailand. [Insert your own joke here and share in the comments.] I was going to make one about there being an army of mistresses hiding inside, but let’s see what you’ve got. [CNNGo]

A Brief, Yet Slightly Disturbing, History Of The Condom

In case you were curious about the evolution of the condom—you know that rubber thingy that people hate to use but have to—here is an illustrated look at its history, by Corinne Marshall and Jordan Monsell. Next time a dude complains about wearing one, just remind him that you could try it the old-fashioned way and have him put his ween in a tortoise’s a** or a pig intestine. He’ll have that thing on in a jiffy. I’m almost picturing the caption for 2020: “Banana Ointment.” [Mad Atoms] Keep reading »

How Do The Guys In Your City Measure Up?

Condomania has big, big news: In fact, they’ve undertaken a study that is poised to change the face of this great nation and the men who live here. See, back in 2004, the company launched TheyFit Condoms, a line of “tailored-fit prophylactics” that come in 76 — count ‘em — 76 different sizes, and have since tracked the sales of the over 27,000 men in 70 countries who bought them. Analyzing this cache of data was no small (heh) undertaking, but the results for the U.S. have been released (haha) and, well, let’s just say not everything’s bigger in Texas. [Condomania]

The NYC Condom Gets A Reboot

New York City has been handing out free condoms since 1971, and the city now distributes more than 40 million rubbers each year in bars, restaurants, community service agencies, and STD clinics. The Health Department recently held a contest for a new, special edition wrapper for its branded NYC condom, and after tallying the votes, the winner is Luis Acosta of Queens. Won’t his design, which is supposed to symbolize New Yorkers’ power to take control and practice safer sex, make it hard to look at electronic power buttons the same way? [NYC.gov] Keep reading »

Swiss Make Teeny Weenie “Hotshot” Condoms For 12-Year-Old Boys

Oh, those libertine Europeans! After studies have shown increased sexual activity by 12- to 14-year-old boys (um, eww?), a Swiss condom manufacturer has created “Hotshot” condoms in smaller sizes. According to the Telegraph, various studies across Europe have shown teens don’t use condoms if the sizes are too big for them. So while a standard size condom is two inches in diameter, Hotshot condoms are 1.7 inches to cater to the teeny weenies.

A six-pack of Hotshots will set you back $7 — but don’t count on the smaller condoms being made available here anytime soon. Hotshots are not even for sale in the UK, which has Europe’s highest rate of teen pregnancy. Hey, at least the kids are wrapping it up … right? [Telegraph UK] Keep reading »

Do These Durex Ads Make You Horny, Baby?

Durex’s latest campaign featuring bodies doing the nasty is made up of typefaces for words like “muscle tension,” “orgasm,” “overload,” and, um, “tasty.” (Oh, really?) Clever, raunchy, or both? Check out all three of the ads, in full, after the jump … Keep reading »
