Now, ladies and gents, you can prepare yourself in attire that offers the utmost protection (in more ways than one). Imagine this. You are wearing a brand new latex (ahem..condom) dress for an evening out on the town. You meet that special someone and can’t resist the urge to pounce. But wait, no one has a condom readily at hand. You do! Just detach from anywhere on your condom couture and you are ready to get it on. Cherry-flavored too.
