Thrillist abhors protection. We bike the FDR without a helmet. We only use seatbelts to restrain people we've kidnapped. When we skydive, we just assume there will either be a bale of hay or an open-air breast implant factory waiting for us on the ground. The form of protection Thrillist detests most? The condom, because it takes away all the feeling during "love-making". But while we don't enjoy buying them, we do believe in protecting this sadly necessary investment. Our device of choice is the stainless steel condom box from Alessi.
Alessi's box holds a single condom (small, medium, large, Magnum or Darryl Strawberry), thereby helping us overcome the double-bagging habit we developed while touring Southeast Asia*. Whereas wallets tend to crease and chafe condoms, the box maintains the structural integrity of both condom and wrapper. The box also prevents body heat from disintegrating the latex, which occurs when the condom is stored in the wallet, hip pocket, or on your junk.
The uses for the condom box are limited only by your own fevered imagination:
