Citizens of the Internet have been watching the meteoric rise of the "Netflix and chill" idiom for a while now, and as if to celebrate the establishment of its official place in the cultural lexicon, Netflix and Chill condoms have arrived.

For the blissfully un-inducted, Netflix and chill is a phrase popular among the college age crowd at the moment. It refers to an invitation to engage in some adult extracurricular activities -- to define a euphemism with a euphemism. The idiom started as an observation of a tendency on the part of young people to suggest staying in and watching movies as a way to initiate more exciting activities.

This burgeoning condom company is using the hilarity and viral popularity of this new slang term as an opportunity to create a niche pop cultural product with these Netflix and Chill condoms.
