Toronto’s public health department introduces city-branded condom

04 Jun

And they think Mayor Rob Ford is embarrassing…


In a slow reveal that took place on Wednesday over Twitter, Toronto’s public health department rolled out its design for the city’s first-ever branded condom.

I’m so glad I’m not from Toronto…

The condom wrapper features city street signs selected for their pun potential: Coxwell Ave., Cummer Ave. and Wood Street.


The move toward a city-branded condom follows similar campaigns in New York and Los Angeles.

“See? We’re a ‘world-class city’, just like New York!” The usual T.O. ‘we too!’-ism…

A statement on the city’s website says condom use goes up as availability increases.

No kidding! People always like freebies.

The condoms will be available in clubs, gyms and clinics across the city.

Perfect venues for encouraging increased casual sex!

    I noticed that the signpost was also clearly a phallic symbol. It must have taken some real perverts to have come up with this one.

    If they want to be politically correct even more, they should insure that the condoms are made with recycled rubber.

    My opinion of condoms has always been that they make sex so uncomfortable that just the thought of using one is enough to prevent casual sex.

    Condoms decrease sensation; there’s no way around that; better to not need them, and eschew fornication, indeed.

    When you consider the physical act of sex, it involves stimulation of nerves which, as we know are similar to electrical circuits. Condoms are made of materials that are non-conductive. How illogical is that? It’s like trying to make an electrical circuit with an insulated wire! LOL

    I tend to suspect that most of these people promoting things like condoms don’t even really like sex. I think they just engage in the act for its own sake without any emotional aspects—which also defeats and decreases sensation.

    I never though of it that way, but sure! 🙂

    Yes; surely the most pleasurable sex would be with the love of your life, with whom there should be no barriers, and no doubt it would be not merely physically pleasurable, but indeed emotionally, even spiritually (‘two become one flesh’, as Scripture says; can it get any more intimate than that?).
