Toronto to get its first branded condom

Posted by Aubrey Jax / May 6, 2014

Toronto CondomAs World Pride 2014 struts toward us, it's time to think about what we'll be wearing for the huge 10 day bash - and I mean wearing everywhere. Toronto is about to get its first branded condoms, "condomTO." I can already see trademarked Toronto condom wrappers scattered about trademarked Toronto trash receptacles, still just short of the mark (hey, it happens) but now matching in decadent style.

New York and LA already have condoms for citizens to get busy with, and Toronto Public Health figured it was time to light some candles and join the club. Their logic? "When condoms are more easily accessible and available, condom use tends to increase." Or hey, how about "we're a hot city and we deserve this" (the latter is not a real quote). We won't get a peek at the wrappers until June 4 - what a tease - but after that #condomTO's will be distributed (for free!) in Toronto bars, clubs, hotels, gyms and clinics.

The last time I used a condom was the last time I used a condom.

"When condoms are more easily accessible and available, condom use tends to increase."

Um.. that's like basic marketing for any type of product.

Whats happening in the east end? I heard certain parts of Queen Street East were being closed for a good portion of the summer due to construction.

"When socks are more easily accessible and available, socks use tends to increase."
- Applicable to anything, including socks.

Correct.

Specifically around Leslie and Broadview.

Leslie to build the line down to the new streetcar barns.
Broadview to update the intersection to allow the new streetcars to turn.

Going to be botched from May till August.

The rest in the plant is made up of assorted other solid materials including vitamins,
minerals, enzymes, sugars, phenolic compounds,
lignin, amino acids and salicylic acid. The addition of blood meal can restore the health and green color of the nitrogen deficient plant.


Keeping the center healthy is important to maintain your body's proper blood flow.
This has quite sharp sides and if you're not careful
it'll cut right through in a single go.
