LOS ANGELES, Sept. 15 (UPI) — About 19 million people in the United States will be infected with a sexually transmitted disease this year but new condoms may help curb STDs, a retailer says.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta said about 50 percent of all sexually active people will get an STD by the time they are in their mid-20s.
Adam Glickman, president and chief executive officer of Condomania and “ooo” boutique partner, says the “ooo” boutique want to revolutionize the way people think about condoms by packaging them in ways that fun-loving people will want to carry, use and give as gifts.
The boxed condoms and gift sets represent a significant departure from other condoms available in the retail market, Glickman says.
The boxes feature photographs of whimsical erotic locales for the “take me” line, the “Kung Fu Sutra” packaging features pen-and-ink artwork and “art of lust” packaging features limited edition series from up-and-coming artists.
All of the “ooo” boutique condoms are available in gift sets and as singles. All the condoms are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, are tested, and exceed all international standards for quality and reliability, Glickman says.
