7 Condoms Stronger Than The Rest

Condoms aren’t exactly effective if they tear, break, or don’t hold up to whatever rough stuff you’ve got going on in the bedroom, so ShopSmart magazine put 500 samples of 22 condom models to the test for its December issue. The rubbers were put through the ringer by an outside lab that inflated them like balloons until they burst to test their strength and submerged them in saline solution zapped with electricity to check for holes. The good news is that all of the condoms passed minimum requirements. However, some of them were better than others, and out of these seven, none had a single hole or tear (industry standards allow for a certain number of defects per batch). Click through to see which condom models more than passed the test, and how much they cost per condom. [ShopSmart] Keep reading »

A Condom Ad That Makes You Want To Say No

The idea of this Condomi condom ad is that these fruit-flavored condoms are so tasty, you may be tempted to take a bite. I do not feel this campaign would make men rush out to buy them. Not men who want to keep their johnsons, anyway. [The Awl] Keep reading »

Whiskey-Flavored Condoms Make Whiskey Dick Literal

How many times have I complained that my boyfriend’s enthusiasm for my BJ talent has been cutting into my drinking schedule? I lost count. Luckily, my problem could be solved with these new whiskey-flavored condoms from the genius company McCondom. But, you see, I’m picky: Which kind of scotch do these flavored condoms taste like? Because the deep smoky quality of Laphroaig would be a bad match with the antiseptic flavor of latex, don’t ya think? The spicy opening note of Bewenie might make a nice pairing, but imagine the cost of that condom. Anyway, order these babies here—they’re about $5 a pair. They would go great in the gift bags at your bestie’s bachelorette party. The perfect nightcap, if you ask me. [BuzzFeed]

Just Say No To These Novelty Condoms

I suppose that since these condoms are called “novelty” condoms, they’re not suitable for human use, yet they still frighten me. The mere thought of utilizing any of the rubber numbers from the Willy Attire collection causes me to shudder in horror. From the beer stein to the banana, the cow to the devil, the elephant to the zebra, these johnson raincoats are not something most women want anywhere near their hoo-has. One supposes it would be amusing to see a guy tromping around in nothing but the gas mask jimmy, but, for God’s sake, don’t try to do anything with a willy if it’s wearing one of these, ladies.

Condoms As Popular As The Pill For Young Women

A new study has found that British women under the age of 50 choose condoms for birth control as often as they choose the Pill. This is the first time the two contraceptives have been used equally (each is used by 25 percent of women under 50) since statistics have been collected. Campaigns to get women to carry condoms and protect themselves against STDs have been credited for the increased condom use, though over half of sexually active single people said publicity about STDs had not made them use condoms. Hmm … I wonder if maybe all those crazy side effects of the Pill — not to mention expense — has something to do with the growing number of condom users? Maybe women are just sick of feeling sick.

Wrap It In A Brian Reyes Raincoat

Planned Parenthood pairs with a fashion designer each season to create a stylish wrapper for its Proper Attire line of condoms. In the past, Yigal Azrouël and Alexander Wang created beautified wrappers, and this time around it’s Brian Reyes who is lending a print from his pre-spring 2010 collection. Rachel Bilson, America Ferrera, Leighton Meester, and Cate Blanchett all appreciate Reyes’ style, and we’re pretty sure their your boyfriends will, too. [Proper Attire] Keep reading »

Condom Ads Suggest You Rub One Out

This is another one of those ads that I just can’t figure out. It’s for condoms, apparently. Or a condom shop? I’m confused. And there’s something in there about rubbing one out, from what I gather. I Believe in Advertising‘s explanation doesn’t exactly help either: “Metaphor of the condoms like rubber gum and his utilization ‘to erase’ evidences.” HUH? WHAT? Totally confused. Maybe, if you use condoms, there will be no traces of … something … bad? I don’t know! Practice safe sex. That’s all I can figure out. Maybe one of you can explain it to me?

The Trojan 2GO Makes Buying Condoms More Discreet

Some people are still embarrassed to buy condoms. Gasp! How dare anyone know they have safe sex? To make purchasing and carrying condoms more discreet, Trojan brand condoms has created the Trojan 2GO, a pocket-sized package that contains two condoms. The hard plastic package makes it safe to stow condoms anywhere, even that abyss of a pocketbook you carry around, and the package can be snapped in two secure pieces so you can use the condoms individually or share with a friend. The Trojan 2GO is also the first condom you can find at the cash counter instead of at the back of the store. It comes in a choice of “Her Pleasure” or “Ultra Thin.” Check out the Trojan 2GO in action in Cobra Starship‘s “Good Girls Go Bad” video, starring Leighton Meester. Keep reading »
