The Best Condom Ad Campaign Ever

This is from an ad campaign by Durex:

I think it’s brilliant. N. and I have been laughing all day long. I have no use for the product any more but if I did, I’d switch to this brand immediately, just to support the marketing people who have such a great sense of humor.

I found the ad here and there are two more equally great ones on that site from the same campaign. The entire blog is well worth checking out.

    1. I can attest from personal experience that men aren’t the only one who have penises and practice penetrative sex which requires the use of condoms to prevent pregnancy. 🙂

          1. I completely understand that women buy condoms, and there are x-gender situations. But I believe the “hook” in that ad involved a reference to “Father’s Day.” And, to be a “father,” you pretty much HAVE to be a man.

  1. That’s the official brand we distribute at work! We give them in a packet with some love gloves, lube, gum (so your breath smells good for kissing) and pamphlets for Planned Parenthood, Island Health, and AIDS Vancouver Island. I love my job.

    However, nothing compares to these Jewish condom slogans that I found once. Among them were such gems as “In case you can’t Exodus before you Genesis”, “Not quite ready for another Jewish mother?”, and my personal favourite, “In case this night is different from all other nights.”

    No not really. If my girlfriend and I were going to use her DNA to create children (the timing is off for us, so that’s not an option, we plan on using a sperm donor) her name would be listed as “father” on the birth certificate, and she would be the biological male parent of our children. Different trans* and genderqueer people have different opinions on how they wish to be addressed in this matter, of course, and our children are going to refer to her with the same feminine parental pronouns as they do me, but there’s no universal blanket answer, so it is possible for someone to be both a father, and not a man.

      1. I wouldn’t say that they are, but I was pointing out there are infinite possibilities and combinations on the gender spectrum who use condoms and have penis in vagina sex, and you were quibbling an awful lot over that one wee omission of the word “man” up there.
        There’s no need for the passive-aggressive quotation marks by the way.
