PETA Designs Condom Wrapper For NYC Department Of Health Contest

The next time you’re feeling a little horny, PETA would love to be there.

The animal rights organization recently had a supporter submit a design on their behalf for a contest the NYC Department of Health is running. The goal is to see who can design the most eye-catching and informative packaging for its free condoms.

“The cholesterol and fat that are found in meat, eggs, and dairy products can clog the arteries that go to all your organs, not just your heart,” says New York activist Emily McCoy, who designed the ad. “It’s a hard medical fact: Men who choose broccoli over bratwurst slash their risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes–and impotence.”

Finalists for the condom contest will be announced in February. New Yorkers will then select a final winner by casting votes online. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear as if PETA’s wrapper will make the cut — as the judges are looking for something that “reflects New York City’s distinctive culture and style while also promoting safer sex.”

Vegan condoms? Yes, some of you do look puzzled. In fact, these latex condoms are actually NOT made out of casein – a protein derived from milk.  Many condom manufacturers use casein, but in a vegan condom, none of these. In my humble opinion, it is great to promote safe sex although the target market for these condoms are mainly vegans. It is simply not because you are a vegan you must use this condom, but its simply thinking about being animal-friendly and protecting them. Tried one before? Share with us your tale.
