Anyone who knows me knows that I spend an inordinate amount of time cutting out pictures of male icons from magazines - Levi Johnston, Zac Efron, James McAvoy - and glue-sticking them to the outside of condom wrappers. I think it's always good to have a point of inspiration when you're ready to don a prophylactic.
Well, leave it to the Spanish to take my home arts and crafts project and run with it. The Thyssen-Bornemisza museum in Madrid will soon be selling condoms with pictures of David Beckham on them. According to The Advocate:
An image of Beckham sleeping is one of many appearing on condom packaging at the museum's gift shop in conjunction with the "Tears of Eros" exhibit later this month.... A photo of actress Nastassja Kinski is also set to adorn condom wrappers. Works by Rodin, Rubens, Maillais, and Bernini may also be displayed on the condom packets.
Photos of the products in question are not yet available.
But wait! Didn't the Chinese already do something like this?
A couple of years ago, a Chinese manufacturer started naming its condoms after the soccer star and putting his picture on the packaging - without his permission, of course. Authorized or not, the David Beckham condom reportedly became the bestselling brand in China.
I could comment on the tiger blanket, but I don't want to deprive you of the pleasure.
