Why America isn’t the greatest country in the world anymore.

Why America isn’t the greatest country in the world anymore.

Published on the opening scene of HBO’s The Newsroom” TV series.

This short clip speaks volumes to where America ranks in the “greatest countries in the world list” and narrows in on some of the values and beliefs we once stood for. Over the decades what once was a driving factor in our country is slowly slipping away. This is why it’s important more than ever that companies and individuals must stand up for not only Americas rank but the worlds.

That is why Naked Condoms has laid the gauntlet down to the other contraceptive brands by giving away over 2 million condoms as a commitment to further the family planning movement. Naked was created not just as a contraceptive but a way for us to make a difference we believe the right of all woman to have a choice, to say no, to find their power their inner beauty.

Your decision makes the world a better place for everyone.
Decide to be Naked.

TAB: Condoms & Makeover, Making A Difference

By | news | No Comments

By Susan Viebrock

What in the world do thousands of condoms and one major makeover have to do with the ongoing fight against a deadly pandemic? And yes, there is yet another Holy Grail du jour, this one, an ovoid blue pill with a focused-group name, but is it The Answer?

Guess.

Stay tuned please. We promise to connect the dots.

The annual Telluride AIDS Benefit and its fashion show – this year, Saturday, February 27, 2016, with a local’s preview on Thursday, February 25 –  was born out of concern for a beloved local named Robert Presley, whose escalating AIDS-related medical expenses inspired his friends to launch the nonprofit back in 1993.

Robt Presley

From its Free Boxy roots, the fashion show grew into a runway theatre. Presley, an over-the-top personality, fiber artist and costume designer enthusiastically applauded (until his death in 1997).

This year, #23 – directed by Telluride Theatre’s executive director Colin Sullivan and Palm Arts’ Jessica Galbo – will once again feature fabulous (local) models, loud music, flashing lights and booty-shaking choreography. But that glitz and glamor is in the service of TAB’ seven beneficiaries, which all rely on TAB for a major leg-up (read dollars) in their efforts to help individuals and families living with HIV/AIDS from Colorado’s Front Range to Africa.

To be very clear, without TAB, hundreds, (thousands over the years), might not get the help they need to survive, including children, which means the efforts of the organization are just as important, just as relevant today as they were at its modest  street dancing start, perhaps more so.

And – drumroll please – here’s where we begin to connect the dots.

Jud Ireland

Jud Ireland came to Telluride after living in Los Angeles for 20 years. He felt Telluride was the perfect escape from the chaos and materialism of his former address.

“I fell in love with the beautiful mountains surrounding the town and all the warm, interesting, caring people the region seems to attract.”

Although he now lives in Miami Beach, Jud still consider Telluride his true home, the home of his heart, so he continues to give back to the community whenever he can. Jud remains affiliated with several nonprofits in the area, including the Ah Haa School and the Telluride AIDS Benefit.

“TAB represents all my favorite things about my favorite town: the nonprofit has a focused and important mission; boundless intelligence; and great style with heart. I have always had my hand in several projects at any given time, still do, but for the past 20 years my passion has been to create and distribute the world’s finest condoms. And I am grateful that through TAB, the fruits of my labor will positively impact so many lives: a win for TAB and its beneficiaries is also a win for me.”

Naked Condoms Quality

Jud’s company donated 46,000 condoms to the Telluride AIDS Benefit: 33,000 will be dispersed to various nonprofits TAB helps to support; the rest go to local artist Kathleen Morgan, who will be using them to create a piece of wearable art and to TAB directors to use however they deem appropriate. Given a retail price of $1/condom, Jud’s donation amounts to a value of $46,000. But if his donation saves even a single life, the gift is priceless.

Good Sex Can Save The World, How You Can Get Involved.

By | news | One Comment

As a manufacturer of contraceptives for several decades I have a few things to say about sex. I think most people would agree that a great sex life is a win-win. It’s not just about one partner. While I know it is problematic to compare gender equality with sex, I do think the best sex can’t happen without it. Regardless of role play or fantasies, sex which is bad for one is ultimately bad for both.

Good sex not only makes you feel good, it allows you to see beyond yourself. There are endless songs and poems about transcendent intimacy. A romantic experience gets you outside of yourself. Think about it. Sexual fantasies tend not to take place in a toxic landfill, a slum, or on the shores of a polluted lake. Each partner leads the other to somewhere better. The journey and destination are both compelling. In fantasies, we like to imagine ourselves in a better world, anew, and with someone special.

Good sex doesn’t have to be a fantasy. To make it real, however, requires skill. It is deliberate. There is no room for laziness. Sex encumbered by disease and ill considered consequences are amateurish at best. If disease-free doesn’t work for you, you’re doing it wrong. For sex to be profound, we need to move toward our potential. That means fewer unplanned pregnancies and more young women staying in school. It means better family planning which supports stable households and communities which, in turn, promotes economic development as well as better management of resources. Only then does the full fantasy envelop us in a crescendo of comfort and luxury.

We don’t need to stop the music. Good sex can save the world. That’s why the Gates Foundation considers women’s access to family planning as an economic, environmental, and civic issue. Similarly, the #HeForShe movement emphasizes the benefits of gender equality for both sexes. Finally, the #Showyourselfie campaign links gender equality and youth empowerment to Global Citizen’s goal of eliminating extreme poverty by 2030.

“The nature of our business is already a good cause, and beyond this, It Takes Two is the focus of my vision for social responsibility at Naked Condoms. In addition to giving hundreds of thousands of condoms each year to family planning initiatives in low income nations such as Venezuela, my goal is for 50% of profits from Naked Condoms to go towards campaigning efforts furthering women’s empowerment and increasing access to family planning services and information for girls and women everywhere. This is where my heart and soul is and the story I really want to tell at Naked Condoms“.
~ Jud Ireland CEO Naked Condoms.

Thinking about just how good sex can be, how it can be better for everyone, may mean we need to rethink a few things… but there’s no downside to it!

For myself, this has led me to rethink condoms. Condoms, being one of the most popular, safe, and widely available means of contraception, should not just be thought of as “for men.” Condoms are equal opportunity. That’s why I’m proud to say that Naked Condoms is not only pledging to support Global Citizen’s campaigning work for gender equality, but will also donate 20% of future profits to family planning and global health initiatives around the world.

Women, just like men, should expect safety and pleasure during sex. Condoms for women is more than a new option; its making the world a better and sexier place!

By | news | One Comment

Let’s Talk Condoms. How Do You Feel ?

By | news | No Comments

Talk SexAttitudes concerning birth control have changed dramatically. Attitudes are important because they reflect our willingness to discuss issues such as birth control, women’s health, or HIV. Clearly, there’s a lot more to condoms than a single topic of conversation. As one of the world’s most popular forms of contraceptive, their impact is enormous. Not only are condoms on a level with modern medicine, environmental sustainability, and women’s rights in terms of global impact, they enable them.

That’s something to talk about!

That’s why experts in diverse fields, from climate change to gender equity, are going on about condoms, contraception, and family planning. Many are even rallying around family planning to be recognized as part of the new UN Sustainable Development Goals to be finalized in September. Family planning leads to more stable households and equitable communities which respect women’s health. These factors support economic development and better management of resources. In fact, family planning might be the most efficient means to protect the environment and fight poverty. Condoms, of course, play a vital role in this.

If that sound like a mouthful already, we’re just getting started. We need to begin a new conversation about condoms which emphasizes their role in making the world a more sustainable and balanced place. That means talking about condoms differently; listening to new perspectives. For this reason, Naked Condoms, markets its condoms to women to emphasize that women are beneficiaries of their use and, therefore, should have the authority to expect them. A healthy relationship between men and women is intimate, so it only makes sense that their needs are best served together.

Getting away from the idea that condoms are merely a man’s contraceptive is not only a practical decision, but more accurate. There is a lot more to say about condoms. It is vitally important that more people know about the importance of contraception. So, the next time you have the chance, don’t be hesitant to start a conversation about condoms.

Here is your chance, share your comments below does it really matter ?
