Q Magazine - - News -

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.
