"This Side Up" Condom Packaging

with texture

Maybe somebody's doing this, but condom packaging could really use a "This Side Up" label on one side of the package to dramatically reduce the amount of fumbling involved. I also thought of adding texturing to one side (making it ribbed would be appropriate) for those folks who might need a condom in low-light situations, but found that someone has a patent on that idea. Maybe just adding the words "This Side Up" in Braille will get around the patent.

"able to feel the up or down side in the dark" Much more than that, this packaging even puts the thing on for you (but I can't quite picture how from the description). [DrCurry, Sep 06 2002]

       Braille is a great suggestion. Don't forget the multicultural appeal of the condom, so plan on spelling out the instructions in about 50 languages.

       RT, I think that's what pwo had in mind ("up" in this case being what you're thinking of as "out"). But I could be mistaken.

       Not everyone has sex with the house lights on, Peter.   

       ...this is a perfectly reasonable idea...

       PeterS, I am a veteran condom user and in general I don't have much problem but every so often..... I will spare you the details but certainly I wouldn't consider myself stupid. As for putting them on orally, ' This bubble gum tastes like shite but man, what bubbles!'
