Prophylactic Belts

Love Buckle Cinches Your Waist and Holds a Condom

— May 22, 2011 — Naughty
The Love Buckle helps hold up your pants while it keeps a condom at the ready in case you find need for one. The handy double duty brushed metal buckle has a window to show off a uniquely designed ONE condom; while it's not a subtle fashion statement, the ultra-mod Love Buckle can be worn with just about any belt. It even has an "empty" warning when the condom stash is depleted so your potential partner will know if you are set to go or in need of a protective refill.

At about $45, the Love Buckle is a unique way to keep a prophylactic close to the point of use. The window in the buckle lets everyone know that you're planning ahead and that you're well-prepared if you're caught with your pants down.

3. Transparent Preparedness - The Love Buckle's window design offers a disruptive opportunity to create products that openly showcase preparedness, signaling an individual's readiness and responsibility in engaging in safe sexual encounters.
Industry Implications

3. Personal Protective Equipment - The personal protective equipment industry can consider disruptive innovation by incorporating discreet and convenient storage solutions for essential items like condoms, inspired by the Love Buckle's discreet condom compartment.
