Louis Vuitton Condoms Come and Go
We weren't sure if we should file this one under "Sex" or "Fashion & Grooming" or "House Proud." Why?
Some background first: The posh contraceptive is labeled with the Louis Vuitton company's signature LV logo on both the packet and condom itself—for his and her pleasure, we assume. It was designed by Irakli Kiziria in collaboration with Design Provocation, neither of which are affiliated with the actual fashion house and thus these things may never see the light of day.
The concept was to launch the product on World AIDS Day, with proceeds to benefit AmFAR (The Foundation for AIDS Research); unfortunately, just as info about the "bling for your thing" came up, the website with all the info shot away. According to the Huffington Post, the luxury rubbers were tentatively priced at $68 each. "To put the price in perspective, $68 could buy you about six 12-packs of regular condoms," the site economically pointed out.
But when you think about it, that's a small price to pay for multiple areas of enjoyment. Whether you're a whore or a saint the sex benefits are obvious. If you're a label whore then this monogram love glove is the ultimate accessory. And honestly, who wouldn't want to have a bowl of these on your coffee table as a decorative conversation piece?
Hopefully a deal can be worked out very soon. Gay Pride season is coming, after all.
