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 »

The Holidays Are A Time For Unprotected Sex

Around this time of year, even as people spend hours and hours wrapping up gifts to put under the tree, they forget to wrap up something else. More than a quarter of respondents admitted to having had unprotected sex because they were too drunk to remember to use contraception, according to a study of adults 18 to 35 in the U.K. And the holidays are when people tend to drink more than usual, the study found, with almost half of respondents saying they drink more during the “festive season.” So, as you’re heading out to holiday parties, don’t forget to drop a condom into your bag. And if you want to get into the spirit of the season, make it one that looks like a wreath. [Medical News Today] Keep reading »
