The ONE® Condoms debut this weekend at Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco

The world’s biggest leather event will take place this weekend in San Francisco and thanks to a new, exclusive partnership between ONE® and the Tom of Finland Foundation, you can find condom wrappers featuring Tom of Finland’s erotic artwork of men in leather and less. Durk Dehner, the president of the Foundation explained: “Tom of Finland was dubbed ‘the Michelangelo of safe sex,’promoting sexual health, particularly among gay men.”

A portion of all sales of the condoms will support the Tom of Finland Foundation in its mission to preserve the artist’s legacy and protect the work and careers of erotic artists worldwide, “offering a safe haven for all erotic art in response to rampant discrimination against art that portrayed sexual behavior or generated a sexual response.”

“Our partnership with Tom of Finland Foundation is a natural fit for ONE, a brand committed to art and self-expression,” said Davin Wedel, president and CEO of Global Protection Corp., parent company of ONE®, “The iconic, provocative artwork of Tom of Finland embodies the strength and boldness we strive for in all of our products. It’s truly an honor to bring his work to life in this innovative way.”

This is just the latest example of the way Tom of Finland artwork is reaching new audiences and collectors. As Dehner told Out earlier this year: “If someone can’t afford a $30,000 drawing, they can maybe afford a $20 cock ring. It’s just as valid that they have Tom in their life in their own way. We think of them all as collectors.”
