Time to put some art on your part.
Back in the 1980s at the peak of the AIDS crisis, Tom of Finland (Touko Laaksonen, 1920-1991) started to include images of condoms in his homoerotic illustrations to help curb the epidemic through safe sex education in a more subtle way.
Dubbed “the Michelangelo of safe sex,” the artist was responsible for some of the most iconic gay images ever created.At last month’s Folsom Street Fair, ONE Condoms introduced a new line of condoms featuring Tom of Finland artwork on the outer packaging and condom wrappers themselves.
It’s a partnership with Tom of Finland Foundation that continues the efforts to promote safer sex.
Available in Super Sensitive (with 50% more lubricant than average styles) and Legend XL (for those lucky chaps), the condoms are extremely comfortable and the packaging is a great reminder that ONE appreciates its gay consumers.
We haven’t been this aroused over art since we found out Mona Lisa was a dude.
