Condom boxes

Years ago, for AIDS awareness month, I made a series of condom boxes. I was surprised that they were a big hit. Who knew? Every now and then I will get an order for one or two. Here is a box that I made for a customer. What fun to carve sex on a box. Love it!

Adds a new meaning to the word "sex pot" eh! Very cool work.

You've put a smile on my dial! What a fun idea and the carved scene within and out is classic!

Hey Jafa,
Sexpot! I love it ! HA!

Hey Cynthia!
Could be a salt dish....but the condoms might be more fun.

Glad I could make you smile Robyn!

I notice you got the shakes taking the first photo! lol These are brilliant! Well, you gotta keep 'em somewhere!

I've been thinking of making a "lady box" for the bathroom for when the nieces come to stay - they get too embarrassed to ask for sanitary towels and so on. I don't think I'll be depicting anything relating to it's contents though!! lol

Love. Love. Love.!

All I can think of when I see these boxes is the ONE phrase I remember from my limited College French (and trip abroad)...
"Je voudrais être sur"
("I would like to be on top")

Don't ask.

This made my week. I laughed out loud. Great idea! Reminds me of the Japanese pillow book concept.
