back to article Condom compartment hidden in iPhone case

Australian Company Annex Products has unveiled* an iPhone case with a sliding compartment designed to store two condoms without revealing the popular prophylactics' telltale bulge. The idea for the product, according to a promotional video, came after a young Australian man visited his girlfriend's home for the first time, …

yeah ok

And for the average fanbois most of these condoms will be well past their use by date even if they ever see the light of day.

I love the downvotes to my post, suggesting Android users really think people who use Adnroid are cooler than those using Apple. OK guys I'm sure you'd be absolute hits with the ladies explaining how you're an individual and not won over by superficial things like appearance... if you ever met any ladies that is. And I'm sure when they met you they'd be able to tell things like appearance weren't your priority without you spelling it out.

Re: yeah ok

I think you'll find one's success in these matters has little or nothing to do with the phone you own.

I saw what you did there...

"Dubbed the “Playa”, the case is said to be "coming soon"."

At least, that's the plan....

I guess the lad's parents

would have preferred their daughter playing with STDs and teen pregnancy.

My mum gave us all a condom to play with in our early teens. Not so we would actually go out and find a boy (or girl for my brother) to use it with, but just to open and look at and know what it was all about when the time came. (My mum wasn't even what you would call 'sexually progressive' in those days, though she has mellowed a lot in her senior years).

You're hardly a "playa" if you only carry a maximum of two johnnys on you at any one time. Speaking as man who has to buy rubbers in bulk, this would cost me a fortune in iPhones!

buy rubbers in bulk, but post on the register with the name "LinkOfHyrule"? Bullshit meter is going WOO-WOO-WOO.

I buy in bulk and use the johnnys on sex toys mate, makes clean up a breeze. So yes, typical register reader here.

"The Register is making inquiries to learn if the Playa can cope with common condom sizes, namely Huge, Gigantic, Colossal and Enormous"

If you want to discreetly carry those on you, you'll have to get a tablet that doesn't overheat, otherwise you're just looking for trouble :)

Did I really get in before the first predictable commentardery, linking iPhone ownership and the chances of getting to use said condom?

If there's room for two of one...

... there's room for one of each.

Oh

I guess you could store a couple of SD cards (or would that then be STD cards?) instead.

'Dubbed the “Playa” '

Were they worried 'iPlaya' would cause confusion with the BBC broadcast on demand service?

Re: 'Dubbed the “Playa” '

It might cause confusion with people with eye fetishes - I believe the more extreme ones are known as "eye-players" in the BDSM community!

Ah come on... New case "unveiled" ?

Opportunity missed with "New case un-sheathed", surely...

Shouldn't the sizes use the technical terms said to have been used by NASA for their urine collection devices (male only at that time) - Huge, Enormous and Unbelievable.

Is that normal behaviour, throwing your wallet onto a table? Confused.

I think throwing your wallet on the table may be part of the courtship dance in for some people......

And the parents are shocked he is carrying condoms??

I don't have a daughter but I'd be concerned if I did and her boyfriend did NOT have a condom on him when they went out alone.....

Hmmm...

Hides the telltale bulge, but then writes PLAYA in big shiny script across the case.

Anyway, that's not the bulge most teenagers need to restrain!

Well, somebody had to post this

"The Register is making inquiries to learn if the Playa can cope with common condom sizes, namely Huge, Gigantic, Colossal and Enormous. ®"

con-do-min-i-um [kon-duh-min-ee-uhm]

the smallest size

Wouldn't the heat from the phone cause latex to degrade rather quickly? Probably no harm if you just keep them in there for one night out, but all jokes aside, if the idea is to have a couple on hand I suspect this is not a good way to do it.

All I can say is - The extras got there first on most of the jokes.

I've got a rubber in my wallet.

One of those little whatchamacallit's.

I'm savin' it for that special day.

When the right girl comes my way.

.

It leaves a circular impression

From all those years of compression.

I've had it since I turned thirteen.

I got it in a vend'n machine.

.

[Chorus]

Circ circ circular impression!

Leading to a state of depression!

In my walla walla walla walla wallet!

I can't wait to install it!

.

No! I can't wait!

.

It's in a little tinfoil packet.

Sometimes I'm tempted to unwrap it.

It's got a reinforced border.

I hope it's still in working order.
