Guys, Using Condoms Will Make You Popular!

A new study found that college guys with higher levels of testosterone (the macho ones!) were more likely to use condoms than their less manly peers.

Occupy Condoms: “We Won’t Be Screwed!”

One of the things I’ve noticed about Occupy Wall Street is that there are really a lot of attractive people involved.

8 Condom Commandments

Imagine this: You’re a young, single woman out in the jungle that is the urban dating world. One fine night, you meet a good-looking guy at a holiday party. “Hello,” he says, as you push your way through the crowd toward the makeshift bar. “Do I know you?” you ask. “No, but I’d like to…

Condoms, Not Candy, The Halloween Treat Of Choice From Oregon Couple

Which would you rather find in your trick-or-treat bag: a giant-sized Baby Ruth bar or a condom?
