It's all fun and games until someone scrapes their glans on the plastic applicator.

Wow. That is pretty damn cool, glanspatula and all.

Safe sex is so passe.

What's really poignant about the demo video: The condom goes on, 1-2-3! There you have it! Instant! And then that ebony phallic object. Just sits there. In silence. Ready. Waiting. Infinitely patient. Hard. Waiting...

If you need a complex, compound machine to put a condom on and/or if you absolutely must put a condom on in one second you're totally doing it wrong.

Unless, of course, you're skydiving, under water, on a roller coaster, sexing it up in microgravity on a plane and/or suborbital flight, mere seconds away from dying via nuclear war or catastrophic meteor strike and/or otherwise fighting off sharks/tigers/polar bears/Chuck Norris.

Because every second counts, then. But only then.

The best way to get it on!

That wouldn't work so well for uncircumcised men.

Let’s face it, using an ordinary condom is a real pain in the butt. First, you have to tear the pack open, often using your teeth. Then you have to take the condom out of the pack – this is a slippery business at the best of times. Next, you have to figure out which is the right side up, before you can unroll it. By the time the condom’s on, the mood is halfway out the window...

who writes copy like that? LETS FACE IT GUYS

to bad those rubbers are full of holes.

Maybe some sort of condom gun that applies a condom at the speed of sound. BAM! Guys would just have to get over the fear of shooting themselves in the crotch.

I've been looking for awhile now for an easier way to protect my vegetables.

"A pain in the butt"?

Clearly, this is a product whose time has come.

Postroad, I agree with you. That is what me thinks.

Hot Rod Condoms. Similar concept, more amusing demo video.

The ads are great, they poke fun at Deputy President Jacob Zuma and Health Minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang. He had unprotected sex with and HIV positive women and claimed he showered afterwards. And she suggested people with HIV will be cured if the eat more beets, garlic and other veggies.

Pepsi Blew ... its wad!

Nah, but, really, it's a nifty idea. And I like the ads.

This is fucking great! I'm getting a boner just thinking about it.

In Italy they use these when they pick up the phone.

Curses! I so wanted to make that joke.

Looks like it'd be kinda hard to put one of those on with your mouth.

Wouldn't said sexing up moments from inevitable death obviate the need for a condom?

Good point, but if you think about it you just might survive said nuclear Chuck Norris polar bear attack after catching something nasty and/or concieving what would undoubtably be a radioactive Chuck Norris polar bear mutant hybrid freak.

In short, it's never too late to think about the future.
posted by loquacious at 11:28 AM on November 10, 2006


Sure, but then you have the opportunity to raise the radioactive Chuck Norris polar bear mutant hybrid freak as your own. You could train it to defend you and keep your bunker lit at night with it's pale green glow. Also, it would be able to bring you penguins which it dispatched by way of a mighty round house kick.

Though by using a condom in the "end moments" you are better protected from getting the radioactive clap. And I hear that kinda sucks, what with the itching, the burning sensation, the actual burning...

So I guess I have to concede your point.

I'm still awaiting enlightenment as to why the garlic appears in their ads. Pronto condoms will fit even if you have a strange, mutant penis?

Secret Life of Gravy, see brolloks comment.

Oh! Thanks. Somehow that went right over my head. Pretty good inside joke there-- I wonder how many of their targeted consumers figured that out?
