What helps you avoid messy cleanups, allows you to drill deep, and is easy to blame when things don’t go as planned?

BP Oil Spill Condoms.

No joke, it’s a real product and helps raise money for the BP oil spill relief efforts.



How exactly are the Oil Spill Condoms helping aid relief efforts in the Gulf of Mexico?


Sunfiltered says,

“Okay, we know that the oil spill is BP’s problem, but that doesn’t entirely explain why so few people are eager to help out with the relief effort. It may not be the sexiest of world disasters, but a disaster it is. So here’s one way to help out: 20% of all proceeds from Oil Spill Condoms will be donated to help rebuild the Gulf Coast, via the Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund. Oil Spill Condoms’ goal is to raise $50,000. And yes, in case you were wondering, the condoms are black. And lubricated. (TheThe site is rife with cringe-worthy puns on everything from spilling to drilling. Let’s just leave it at that.) You can actually use the condoms, too, unlike so many novelty condoms: These ones are the FDA-approved Lifestyles Tuxedo brand.”


Have fun browsing around the Oil Spill Condoms site. I particularly like the FAQs.

I don’t know that I’d add these to my eco-friendly sex ideas, but the cause is good nonetheless.

Even if you do purchase a few of these for novelty and fundraising sake, they may come in handy in the event that an unexpected oil well springs a leak.
