New York has their subway condoms, and now, Los Angeles County officials are looking for safe-sex sheaths to represent our very own city. The L.A. County Department of Public Health announced today that the search is on for condom wrapper designs to appear on rubbers distributed by L.A., for L.A.

According to the website for the contest, called LA's Next Sex Symbol, designs will be accepted until June 17, and anyone over the age of 18 can enter by uploading their safe-sex-inspired photo or artwork. After the deadline, judges will pick the top 50 designs, then the public will vote on 10 that will appear on condoms for a year.

The condoms are made and provided by One Condoms, and so it's probably not a coincidence that one million and one condoms with the fancy new wrappers will be created.
