Luxury Condoms With An Eco-Twist

Condoms come in all shapes and sizes, funky colors, vibrating ones, extra lubrication, glow-in-the-dark, and now in the uber exclusive, uber high priced yet eco friendly LUXURY version.

Created by two French aristocrats (naturally), Prince de Bourbon and Count de Bizemont, The Original Condom Company has introduced a new line of luxury condoms packaged in cases inspired by high-end jewelry. Now, just to paint a picture for you, I’m saying that if a man pulled out “The Regular”—a black box with gold lettering and velvet interior— you might mistake it for an engagement ring and be quite upset to find six condoms and a $20 price tag inside.

Shoppers to the site have their option of The Pocket (3 condoms), priced at $13.50, The Regular (box of six, priced at $20), and the refill of 12 priced at $24. Perhaps not the best financial option when it comes to your everyday birth control mode, but it certainly would be nice to have a storage option that doesn’t have a Trojan soldier on the cover.

What we’re more impressed by, however, is that the company has taken an interest in the planet, assuring that they are invested in protecting the environment and have organized the carbon offsetting of their products. Perhaps eco-friendly condoms don’t seem like they’d make much of a difference, but every little bit helps.

That being said, condoms are necessary, and buying them can be awkward when it comes time for the store clerk to judge your choice of ribbed or extra sensitive. Then when you get home, it can be a pain to hide the box in some secret bedside drawer. To that end, perhaps these luxury condoms are providing a unique aesthetic service in that they are specifically designed to not be hidden.

When asked about his product, the Count stated, “Condoms protect everyone from disease, ours protect from tackiness.” You got a point there.
