What Kind Of Condom Would Einstein Have Worn?

Condoms aren't just smart, they're fun and sexy, too!

The Research and Development department here at Lucky Bloke had a few moments to spare and decided to have some fun composing a list of key historical figures and what condoms they would have preferred if they'd been available during their time in history. The results are sure to entertain you.

Cleopatra. While the trendsetting Queen of the Nile was probably stuck with slave-made precursors of Trojan's NaturaLamb, in our age, we're certain she would enjoy ONE's Tantric Pleasures — a condom that's truly innovative and feels great inside and out! Tantric Pleasures, the first condom in the world created with tattoo-inspired texture for increased pleasure and an easy-rolling flared shape for added comfort, offers three tattoo-inspired designs. Considering her penchant for Greek lovers, Cleopatra's favorite would be Titan, of course!

Gandhi. The inspired activist Gandhi would immediately embrace the unparalleled, cruelty-free, socially engaged, fair trade condoms of GLYDE. GLYDE, the world's only certified Ethical and Vegan condom, is ultra-thin and comfortable, maximizing sensation for both partners without compromising strength and reliability. And, GLYDE is available in all three sizes (slimfit, ultra, and maxi), ideal for any modest revolutionary. (C'mon, who really knows what size Gandhi was under his dhoti?)

Queen Elizabeth I. Beautifully portrayed by Cate Blanchett, QE1 embodies the sexy, independent, powerful woman! Perhaps, she would prefer the FC2 Female Condom, perfect no matter the size of her lover(s). However, she'd place the current management of the FC2 in the tower for making them available via prescription only (Madness!!) ...  So perhaps a Crown Skinless Skin would be her pick. Who could pass up ultimate sensation and pleasure in combination with such a royal title?! 

Genghis Khan. History and legend indicate the Great Khan clearly preferred sowing his seed, back in the day. Due to hordes of STIs and something called child support, we warmly recommend Naked Luxury to the Mongolian Emperor. This condom is luxurious and available in several sizes. In action, the extra strength of Special Power stands up to added friction and tension — providing greater reliability when things get rough, no matter what his (or your) adventure.

Marie Antoinette. The jury is still out on whether Marie Antoinette actually declared "Qu'ils mangent de la brioche." (or "Let them eat cake!"). However, we are quite certain that a woman known for decadence and great taste ... would never pass up on any of ONE's Flavor Waves. With options like Chocolate Strawberry, who could blame her?! Let them eat chocolate strawberries, indeed!

Ben Franklin. Well, given the whole key / kite / lightning / inventor thing ... we are certain Ben Franklin would prefer a condom that's at the very least ... more "stimulating." Thoughts of pleasure abound. So of course, we'd first suggest SKYN Studded – made of the very pleasurable, innovative polyisoprene. (And then, if size warranted a different approach, Lifestyles 3Sum ... Yes, rumor has it, Ben was popular like that.)

Madame Curie. Bringing light to the mysteries of radioactivity, scientist Madame Curie became famous for her pioneering research in the field and was the first person honored with two Nobel Prizes (in physics and chemistry). This is a no-brainer ... surely Madame Curie would have enjoyed Glowing Pleasures (glow-in-the-dark) condoms! 

Napoleon. Okay, jokes aside, we all realize that Napoleon would need to compensate and only buy TROJAN Magnums (which would surely have included Magnum Bareskin (Thin) and Magnum Ecstasy) ... however, due to his expensive European tastes he would have actually preferred RFSU's Okeido (larger fit) even if he truly required RFSU's Mamba (snugger fit).

Albert Einstein. While Einstein's brain has often been the subject of research and speculation, he was a man first. And, well, even theoretical physicists need some personal time. Naturally, experiments are carried out to measure the thinnest condoms available. SKYN Elite, Okamoto's 004, and Kimono Microthin, and are all strong contenders, yet it's relatively likely that Unique Pull condoms would actually get Einstein's vote.

Shakespeare. Poet. Bard. Wordsmith. Romantic. It goes without saying that Lucky Bloke's Ultimate Condom Sampler would be required for Shakespeare's "many plays"...
