Nothing’s “Greener” than Waiting Until You’re Ready.

Most of these ads are, of course, male oriented. Some are sexy, in a cheap way, a few are funny. Some mess around with fear, which probably isn’t a bad idea—unprotected sex is scary stuff.

I look forward to a new generation of vegan and other condom companies that are sensitive not just in product but in mission, and marketing. That speak not only to hetero males but to women and LGBT.

With a bow to the Pope for moving the conversation forward

    Well, actually the pope doesn't really support condom usage, at least not in general. As an example of supported usage of condoms he stated "male prostitutes". So he ONLY supports using condoms for preventing diseases.
