I just scanned this for work, and it made me giggle. Condom Bolo, anyone? This was quite revolutionary in the 80's I think!  Cheesy





Kinda hard to see, but they are jewelry with hidden condoms in little pouches, in a very 80's southwestern inspired style. I am praying that bolo ties don't make a comeback!

Haha... that's actually pretty funny!
Oh gosh I really hope that bolo ties don't make a comeback either, they're quite hideous (then again, some things from the 80s that I think are ugly are coming back into fashion ;_;).

Living in southern Arizona, I can tell you that bolo ties never left. When a guy's all dressed up in western style, they can look pretty nice! I remember the stir when the condom jewelry first was introduced. I thought it was rather scandalous at the time. Now I just think it's funny and cheesy.

I've always thought the Southwest look was awesome...IF you live in the southwest! But, I was obviously not in the majority on that!  Wink

I clicked this reading "Costume Jewelry" and then I got here and couldn't help but think "Condoms arn't  Costume jewelry" once I left....

My old eyes, oh the eighties, I am vintage.  Woo!

In my bartending days, I used to get trojan ribbed condoms and cut the edges of the packages with pinking shears to make a pretty edge, then draw little hula girls on islands in front to the condom so it looked like the sun rising in the background.  I would put earring wires on them and people would buy them right off my ears when I was at work.  Smiley faces were a big hit as well.

I thought they would make funny gifts now, but I haven't bought condoms in so many years I don't even know which ones come in clear wrappers now.  Cheesy

I've been messing around with resin and I have a very "friendly" friend and was thinking of making her a resin pendant with a condom inside. This post made me giggle now I think I really will make her one..

(slight history lesson from a historical romance reader)(sorry if i come off as a knowitall snottypants)

Okay, not sure if this is "pc" or not, but condoms have been around for centuries.  Of course they didn't start out as Trojans and such, but there's something called a "french letter" that men used in the 1800's and they used to use sheep's intestines and such...  The scandal came about because people started talking about it in public.  It used to be you had to go to "someone" and be secretive about it.  But hey, times are 'a'changin' right?

And on a side note - "vintage" is 20 years?  or 30?  cna't remember.
