Special Edition Oil Spill Condoms to Benefit Gulf Coast

Ariana Rodriguez
NEW YORK — Practice Safe Policy, a condom manufacturer that promotes political issues through condom wrappers, has released limited edition Oil Spill Condoms with a portion of its sales to benefit the Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund.

Oil Spill Condoms are available exclusively online and are made with FDA-approved latex, the company said.

"This is the worst oil spill in U.S. history and as citizens we need to do what we can to help," Practice Safe Policy founder Benjamin Sherman said. “We want our customers to gush for a cause with the Oil Spill Condom.”

Practice Safe Policy will donate 20 percent of the proceeds from Oil Spill Condoms to the Greater New Orleans Foundation, a community foundation serving the 13-parish Greater New Orleans metropolitan area.

Sherman told XBIZ that Practice Safe Policy currently offers seven condoms, including Obama Condoms and Sarah Palin Condoms, that ship to more than 60 countries in addition to its local streets of New York.

“Since 2008, Practice Safe Policy has been dedicated to holding our politicians (and other public figures) responsible for their actions by taking their messages to another responsible medium: condoms,” he said.

Practice Safe Policy gained notoriety during the 2008 elections when Obama and McCain condoms were released and garnered media attention from CNN, FOX, Associated Press and other news organizations, Sherman said.

“Looking towards the future, we will continue to explore the combination of politics, sex and condoms,” Sherman said. “Of course, when there is an issue that warrants being put onto a condom (like the oil spill), we’ll take advantage of that situation as well.”
