Condom-maker Durex wants you to have a safe #EggplantFriday.
The company put together a #CondomEmoji campaign to urge the Unicode Consortium to add the pregnancy preventer to the database. New emojis are added periodically, especially when users make their requests on social media. In fact, we might not have ever gotten emojis of color if people didn’t talk about it online.
In the meantime, Durex conducted their own research and said using emojis to talk about sex for 18 to 24 year olds is easier.
Durex released a statement to BusinessWire:
“Emojis of this sort will enable young people to overcome embarrassment around the discussion of safe sex, encourage conversation and raise awareness of the importance of using condoms in protecting against sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV and AIDS,” she said.
Durex’s hope is to get the condom emoji in play before World AIDS Day, which is December 1, but approval usually takes at least a year.
Always practice safe emoji, kids!
