Designer Condoms

Welcome to another day in my life. Today is Friday and the first day of October. My how the year is just flying by. I hope you are having a safe and great week. We have almost made it through another work week.

I will be leaving to have some oral surgery done in a couple of hours but wanted to get my daily blog done before I get ready to leave. I am also enjoying time with my four legged children since I will probably not want to do anything except sleep after I get back.

I heard something today which made me chuckle. Designer condoms.

Some hotel guests who raid their room’s mini-bar may find a surprise amid the cashews and sodas: condoms.

The Thompson Hotels chain, which includes the Hollywood Roosevelt and the Thompson Beverly Hills, as well as several properties in New York, is selling limited edition condom packages created by a series of fashion designers.

Earlier this month, designer Charlotte Ronson became the first woman to design the wrapper and packaging of the condoms, which sell for $5.99 for a set of three. Ronson’s design incorporates pastel colors and her signature logo.

Condom manufacturer Proper Attire is donating the proceeds from the sale of the specially designed products to Planned Parenthood. A company spokesman said the choice of a woman designer was deliberate.

“We wanted to make them more fashionable so that a woman could carry them and blend them easily into her cosmetics bag,” a Proper Attire spokesman said.

Indeed, the pastel packages would look right at home next to lipstick. It iss nestled among the potato chips that they may look a little lonesome

Now I have seen everything. But at least they are promoting safer sex.

I hope you have a great weekend.

Until we meet again; here's wishing you health, hope, happiness and just enough.

big bear hug,

Daddy Dab
