Fashionable rubbers

This Thursday marks the last day of National Condom Week (it started on V-Day). To celebrate, and to promote a new condom brand "designed to encourage women to feel more comfortable about carrying and buying condoms," several Planned Parenthood "condom fairies" will be distributing their wares at Old Port bars. Look for them at Bull Feeney's, the Old Port Tavern, Amigos, the White Heart, Brian Boru, and ForePlay (even though it's ladies night, Margaritas said no).

Proper Attire condoms ("Required for Entry") debuted at New York Fashion Week, in keeping with Planned Parenthood's national campaign to market them as hip and trendy (the colorful designs and simple fig leaf motif help with that too). The condoms also popped up at the Sundance Film Festival, where they provided fodder for E! Online's Planet Gossip blog.

 The yellow and grey dots are my personal fave, aesthetically speaking.
