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 »

“Jersey Shore” And “The View” Talk Condoms And Hot Tubs

Someone said the word “condom” in Elisabeth Hasselbeck‘s presence and her head did not explode! (We cannot speak for Sherri Shepherd, though.) Thank you, Joy Behar, for asking tough questions of the “Jersey Shore” cast when they visited “The View.”

P.S. I apologize for any painful mental images that may have resulted from reading that headline. Keep reading »

Should Condom Companies Adjust Sizes To Fit Male Egos?

We’ve all heard the famous “condoms are too tight for me” line before, right, ladies? Well, according to a new survey from the Kinsey Institute, 45 percent of men are actually telling the truth. Sounds like a suspicious statistic on account of how stretchy those damn things are … but I will give dudes the benefit of the doubt for now. Of the 436 men surveyed, about half reported that condoms just didn’t fit them properly. They also complained of breakage, slippage, lack of pleasure, and peen irritation. To help solve these poor men’s d**k issues, the Kinsey Institute has recommended that condom companies re-brand their sizing in order to accommodate men’s egos. So, a “small” would be a “large,” a “medium” would be an “extra-large,” etc. This new sizing would theoretically allow men to buy condoms that fit them without being embarrassed. Really? Is the male ego that fragile? Does that mean we should start re-branding bra sizes as well? [Asylum] Keep reading »
