TOM OF FINLAND
ONE OF A KIND. Safer sex can be a work of art. There is only ONE Tom of Finland. He is considered the master of homoerotic art, and his iconic drawings are internationally recognized and adored. 24 of these pioneering works were featured on a special line of ONE® Condoms, and a portion of all sales support Tom of Finland Foundation in its mission to preserve the artist's legacy and protect the work and careers of erotic artists worldwide.
The ONE® brand is all about promoting sexual health through artistry and self-expression. We’re proud to partner with renowned artists around the globe to help foster conversations about safer sex.
These special edition Tom of Finland condoms are the result of a unique collaboration with Tom of Finland Foundation, which the artist established in 1984 with his partner, Durk Dehner, who serves as its president today.
During the 1980s, at the height of the AIDS crisis, Tom of Finland (Touko Laaksonen, Finnish, 1920-1991) began including condoms in his drawings to help curb the epidemic.
“The ONE brand shares the Foundation’s commitment to promoting healthier attitudes about sexuality,” said Dehner, “Tom of Finland was dubbed ‘the Michelangelo of safe sex,’ promoting sexual health, particularly among gay men.”
“Our partnership with Tom of Finland Foundation is a natural fit for ONE,” said Davin Wedel, President and CEO of Global Protection Corp., parent company of ONE®. “The iconic, provocative artwork of Tom of Finland embodies the strength and boldness we strive for in all of our products. It’s truly an honor to bring his work to life in this innovative way.”
