Playboy Condoms Debuts Creative Campaign, “Respect Your Partner(s)”

October 23, 2019 GMT

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 23, 2019--

Today, Thai Nippon Rubber Industries PLC (TNR) announces the launch of Playboy Condoms with a creative campaign called “Respect Your Partner(s).” In association with Playboy Enterprises, TNR is looking to bring to life Playboy’s mission of pursuing pleasure for all. TNR’s products and consequent campaign promote healthy, consensual, and safe sex practices. The new product line features innovation that promises a better condom experience with increased pleasure.

The campaign comes at a critical point for the United States. According to the CDC, the country has seen an increase in STDs for the fourth consecutive year. TNR aims to combat this trend with Playboy Condoms, offering sexually active adults a way to prevent themselves from becoming a part of these alarming figures. The premium line of condoms will be made available to mass market for safely enhanced pleasure. Playboy Condoms are made for sex-positive people, with an aim to pursue healthy, respectful and consensual “play.”

“We are proud of our collaboration with TNR for the launch of Playboy Condoms,” said Reena Patel, Chief Operating Officer, Global Licensing & Joint Ventures at Playboy Enterprises. “Since its inception in 1953, Playboy Enterprises has advocated for a culture where all people are free to pursue pleasure and has worked to establish itself as a convener and leader in sexual wellness. This partnership furthers those goals,” she concludes.

Launched in a variety of tantalizing shapes and textures, Playboy Condoms exceed international quality standards and are electronically tested with a proprietary method. After testing, they are finished with a premium, silky-smooth silicone lubricant to prevent breakage or discomfort.

The full line of Playboy Condoms is available at retail locations across the country, including Walmart. The products are also available online on Amazon through Playboy Condoms’ partnership with Upstart Group, a global e-commerce sales consulting company. Upstart Founder and President Rohan Thambrahalli added, “Our team was excited by the opportunity to work with such an iconic brand to leverage our experience expanding Playboy’s consumer products to the online marketplace.”
