What is it about condoms that makes everyone smile?

Oh, that's right - it's the sex!

So I'm standing at a screenwriting conference in Los Angeles, chatting in a hotel lobby with some old and new friends, when one of my friends says, "Hey, where's the goods you promised me?  That's what I want to know."

"Oh, no worries!"  I smile.  "I refilled my stash with you in mind!  I've got one of each for you."  That would be Elexa condoms - pink wrapper, blue wrapper and purple wrapper (the new fav, btw).

And then I'm going into my purse and handing my friend condoms in mixed company in the middle of a hotel lobby.  He puts them in his shirt pocket, joking about them showing through, or falling out as he pulls out a business card.  Most people around us have no idea why I've just handed my friend condoms - but everyone's smiling as my friend demonstrates the business card, condoms go flying move.

A new acquaintance - complete with wedding ring - asks where's his.  Even married types use condoms is the comment.

Soon enough, I mention that I blog for Elexa... my friend I gave the condoms to is having so much fun with them (without even opening them), that I'm beginning to feel the need to explain to the bewildered and amused group.

"Oh, I wish you hadn't told me," laughs another friend.  "It was much more fun when I had no idea!"

I think that lifeknot is a good idea that has not been done before. With so many other sites out there, it's hard to navigate the good ones from the bad apples. I found Read More >>

Hah! I was emotionally unavailable for about 8 years of my twenties - too many problems at home and at work to focus on men. Result? There was one guy interested in me during those 8 years (!one!)-... Read More >>
