Gentlemen, we know what you were thinking the last time you were about to put a rubber on before sex: "This condom wrapper is so boring!"Well, fret not, because L.A. County has chosen a winner in their condom art design contest, and that winner is one Adam Lyons, a graphic designer based in L.A. Lyons' design admonishes sex-havers to "suit up," featuring a tuxedo-style bow-tie.

Lyons' design was chosen from over 500 entries. The contenders were competing to have their design featured on one million and one condoms distributed throughout the county, as well as $750 in gift cards and a brand new LED TV. In addition to Lyons' design, nine other finalists will have their art displayed on the condoms of L.A. County.

Among the judges determining the best rubber wrapper were Perez Hilton and Julia Allison.
