Safer Sex Haiku Contest Winners!

Wed, May 13, 2009

Pop Culture

Our two winners will receive this Tantalising [sic] Lip Butter and that’s not all!

The Body Shop and MTV’s awesomely named Staying Alive Foundation recently launched an STD awareness campaign called “Yes to Safe Sex” (we would have called it “Yes to Safer Sex,” but we’re sticklers like that). Since we’re suckers for anything safety-related when it comes to hooking up, we held a Safer Sex Haiku Contest two weeks ago. Well, the entries are in and we’ve picked two winners, each of whom will receive a gift bag from The Body Shop worth $150! Honorable Mentions after the jump. Thanks to all who participated!


Sweet smell of latex,
The scent of free love, divine
Coupling, you and I.


Look. There will be no
till you wrap it, hun.



Don’t use protection
It’s only your life at risk
Disease is sexy


“Condom Freedom” (a haiku seeking to describe the pleasure drawn from freedom of worry, suspicion, and ignorance)

We open inward,
Ribs and spines coiled white blossoms
That tremble and moan.


Trojan, Lifestyles, and
Ramses make such good condoms
Use them, won’t you, please

PEPPER (again…she was on a roll!):

That singular sound:
The foil condom wrapper
Torn by your fingers.

So gently, I pinch
The tip as you roll it down.
Good teamwork, you say.

This small hindrance is
Worth the chance to feel you there,
Moving inside me.
