Condoms are in vogue. That is a fact we happily noticed over the last few weeks. The condom industry is not only recession proof, no, sales are always significantly up in tough times. Couples stay in to save money because of the credit crunch (or are they afraid they cannot afford babies?).
Another proof of this is the latest condom fashion craze. To celebrate World Aids Day the University of Oregon held a condom couture fashion show on the 5th of December 2008. Read on to see the results of the event.

Condom Fashion Show by the University of Oregon
The show, held in the EMU ballroom, included skits and stories to raise awareness of the global pandemic and the eight thousand people who die each day of the pandemic AIDS. The students did an incredible job designing prophylactic-inspired creations and walking them down the runway.
Condom Fashion Men
Here are a few designs for men.
