NEW YORK, March 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Graphic Armor, Inc., in association with KISS® and Condomania®, announced today the release of the newest KISS Kondoms™, the world's first FDA-approved "Picture Condoms™" featuring a full color image right on the latex!
Originally introduced in 2002 by Condomania, KISS Kondoms™ were the first to display a color photographic image of a celebrity on both the condom wrapper and box. The innovation continues now on a whole new level, featuring an image of Gene Simmons' iconic fully extended tongue running down the length of the latex condom. "Our decision to feature Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley and the KISS brand on these revolutionary condoms was a no-brainer considering Gene and Paul's worldwide legacy as entertainment icons and pioneers," said Chris Panucci, CEO of Graphic Armor.
Adam Glickman, CEO of Condomania, remarks, "I can think of no better way to introduce what is essentially advertising on condoms. Gene, Paul and KISS have a well-documented history of breaking new ground in marketing. With Gene's tongue leading the way once again, I am confident we are about to see an explosion of marketing messages and logos displayed on millions of condoms in action."
KISS Kondoms™ will be touring store shelves worldwide starting in April 2011. A second KISS Kondom, "Studded Paul," featuring an image of Paul Stanley on textured latex, will be released by June 2011.
Orders can be placed immediately at Condomania.com (http://secure.condomania(dot)com/KISS/) and soon at KISSOnline.com. KISS Kondoms™ surpass all international standards for safety and reliability and are available in a three-pack box for $7.99.
