Q sex: CELEBRATE CONDOMS
Celebrate Life, Celebrate Love, Celebrate Equality, Celebrate Diversity Meet Tim Browning and David Swann:
The founders of Celebrate Condoms,Tim Browning and David Swann, first met in the early 1980's when they were both working in the riotous and iconic Melbourne comedy venue The Last Laugh. David as an actor and director and Tim as the technical director. It was a time of ground breaking comedy performances where the audience were introduced to some of Australia's now top comedians while watching aerial trapeze above their heads.
Tim and David went on to develop their own creative careers in film and television and special events. David was a director of such iconic shows such as Round the Twist, Skithouse and his first feature film as writer/ director was the acclaimed Crackers.Tim worked in film and television before starting his own special events company with the first gig being the opening and closing ceremonies of World Expo in Brisbane.The company then produced amazing events for corporate clients for the next ten years.
It was during the time of his event business that the idea was hatched with his business partner to create a unique range of printed condoms.
However, the technology to realise the idea would take another 20 years to develop. With the advent of high tech digital printing techniques, it is now possible to safely print full colour condoms in any design. Teaming up with a major manufacturer whose factory has been in business since 1958, each condom undergoes full electronic testing and is produced to the highest international standards.
Fast forward 20 years. Tim and David met again when they separately moved to Byron Bay, became firm friends and started to explore new business ideas. Out of many brainstorming sessions they became inspired again with the idea of printed condoms - and so was born Celebrate Condoms.
Over the last two years there were many small print runs with varying colours and designs.The first of these is the Celebrate Rainbow Striped Condoms range, of which the response so far has been fantastic.
Traditionally condoms have been super “boring” products. Tim and David wanted their first range to reflect a celebration of life and sexuality and what better place to start than with a Rainbow! Let's change the conversation around condoms and bring fun and celebration into the mix. We love the idea that rainbow coloured condoms celebrate safe sex for everyone and also celebrate equality in our community. And besides - they look really good on!
The release of Celebrate Rainbow Striped condoms was brought forward to show our support of marriage equality in Australia. Anything to help bring some light and joy into the debate is something to be celebrated.
At the end of the day, sex is a celebration of life for everyone - regardless of their sexuality, age or beliefs.
