    This shop has a novelty condom for every occassion.
    Your man thinks he is hung like an elephant? there's a big trunk
    Or perhaps he is a patriotic American - opt for lady liberty
    Vegetables, dope leaves you name it they have got it.

    They do sell other ranges besides just novelty with the policy safety comes first.

    The world's first specialized condom shop, the Condomerie takes "condoms" to a whole different level - from studies of fitting and sizing, to intricate fine and humorous artwork made from the rubbers. Located in the heart of the Red Light District in Amsterdam, the Condomerie and its windows will draw more attention than the prostitute windows nearby. Enter in to learn about the Rubber Tree, Condoms and the Church, safe sex, sizing, flavors, varieties, male condoms, female condoms, and its history and philosophy. You can also participate in the First European Survey To Study The Fit And Feel Of Condoms. It was the brainchild of Marijke Vilijn, Ricky Jansen, and Theodoor van Boven on April 10, 1987 during a lively discussion in an Amsterdam restaurant about the disease that has occupied our thoughts since the beginning of the 80's: AIDS, Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. They were very concerned with this incurable and deadly virus transmitted via blood or sperm, that attacks the natural immune system of the body. The expectation was that the aids virus, called HIV, Human Immunodeficiency Virus, would quickly spread throughout the world. It seemed clear that man should count on the surfacing of more new viruses. General sexual hygiene and use of condoms became essential: Safe Sex was the motto. Condoms were obtainable from pharmacies, chemists, sex shops and vending machines. There was, however, little choice or good information. It was time for a specialised condom shop with a wide selection, expert information and good service. The aim was to remove the taboo surrounding the sale of condoms and provide proper information about the different types and sizes available in an unselfconscious manner. The Condomerie had to be easily approachable by everyone, men and women, young and old. Artwork with erotic and safe sex themes was used to decorate the interior of the shop. Rating: 5 stars out of 5.

    Condomerie

    Only in Amsterdam could you find a shop selling condoms exclusively. The Condomerie is an interesting place though why anyone would spend five euros on a Homer Simpson condom is beyond me.
