Trojan Introduces New Pumpkin Spice Condoms
Capitalizing on the yearly fall frenzy, Trojan is rolling out a new addition to its lineup with new Pumpkin Spice Condoms. The company hopes the new launch will help quench customers autumnal thirst.
“I’ve been in this game for a while now, and research shows across all demographic markers that nothing comes close to the raw sexual magnetism of pumpkin spice,” said head of Trojan’s Innovation Department Adam Eckersley, “It’s the siren’s song of the season. When it comes to fall, there’s only one thing people want to do, and that’s wrap their lips around pumpkin spice.”
So far, the campaign has been met by favorable reviews, particularly among college educated suburban white women who otherwise wouldn’t spend much time below the belt, saying the addition of their favorite fall flavor is taking “the ‘ick’ out of ‘dick’”
However, some critics have raised issues with the campaign, questioning whether the condom maker has thought through the possible repercussions of their decision. "We're entering uncharted territory here,” cautioned Dr. Amelia Jennings-Brown, a relationships expert with over 40 years of experience, “What I’m worried about is conditional association. At some point, the simulation won’t be enough. Users will start craving the real thing, and the next thing you know, you’re hitting on a Jack-O-Lantern in front of a group of trick-or-treaters. There’s a reason most of those things are toothless.”
Despite these objections, Trojan is pushing full steam ahead with its seasonal offerings, banking on the fact that as autumn leaves begin to fall, so too will inhibitions. Eckersley said pumpkin spice condoms are just one product within the cornucopia of new offerings this season, as his team is already back in the lab looking to help men last longer by fighting sensitivity with extra thick flannel lined condoms.
