Practice safe streaming with these Netflix and Chill condoms

netflix and chill condoms
Lovers of the well-known phrase “Netflix and chill” (aka “watch Netflix and hook up”) may have a new favorite contraceptive device. In honor of the subtle invitation, Yousef Okasheh, a recent graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, teamed up with a friend to sell “the definitive Netflix and Chill Condom.”

“I saw a couple memes have been floating around, and I was like, ‘Oh my God, I think it would be hilarious to quickly sell [condoms],'” Okasheh recently told Fusion. He enlisted the help of a friend who studies design at UT Austin, and they quickly came up with their product and launched a website yesterday. Currently, the self-proclaimed “poor college students” are selling three-packs for $12.

“These make a great present to give your partner for any NF and chill event,” says the product description. “They also make great presents for anyone, on nearly any occasion… just as long as you want to have sex with them.” It’s important to note, as the website does, however, that neither a Netflix subscription or sexual partner is included with purchase. Those, you’ll have to come up with on your own.

As Fusion pointed out, the price point is a little high compared to the average pack out there and they only come in one size without any bells or whistles. However, Okasheh did confirm that they’re FDA approved, lubricated, and won’t expire for several years. What they do offer is serious entertainment value, and of course, the benefits of safe sex.

Although it seems unlikely that the duo got Netflix’s approval to use its branding, the streaming service is getting good publicity out of Okasheh and his friend’s venture. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings doesn’t seem to bothered by it anyway. Earlier today, he joked on twitter:

Now if only the streamer would provide a how-to on setting up the Netflix and chill button to order these condoms for you, along with everything else it can do.
