While in San Francisco a couple months back a couple of friends cornered & showered me with handfuls of condoms. Then they made me sit through Larry Clark’s 1995 film, Kids. Their point consisted of the fact that maybe I am prone to sexual relations with strangers when I get incredibly, obnoxiously drunk, or maybe it had something to do with the fact that I was making AIDS jokes on the drive up from Los Angeles. Regardless of their reasons, I became the woman with 25 condoms hanging around loosely in her purse. I looked like Sally Slam Pig. The second any man caught a glimpse into my hooker handbag he’d know for sure that I was a douche bag or that I already had the AIDS. PRECAUATION. PRECAUTION. PRECAUTION.

Since then I’ve been doing some research on a more acceptable, versatile & efficient way to carry and conceal condoms. As fun as fishing through 47,000 condoms in order to find your keys sounds, it’s generally a pain in the ass. Enter Just In Case, Inc. they provide these nifty compact carrying cases in assorted colors to conceal condoms. They make an excellent gift for a vast array of your friends from the mild-mannered to the completely licentious. With the holiday season steadily approaching you might as well place a bulk order and save your friends from a New Year filled with herpes and HIV.
