Condom Abstract
The novelty condom packaging provides a single package having separable sealed packets for containing a condom and a lubricant. Two sheets of foil material are sealed together along the edges of the sheets. An additional seal is provided parallel to the side edges and spaced a predetermined distance from one sealed side edge so as to form a large and a small pocket for receiving products. A condom in the large pocket and a lubricant in the small pocket are packaged when the sheets are finally sealed along the top edge to form a sealed condom packet and sealed lubricant packet. The package is perforated along the middle of the seal between the pockets to permit the packets to be separated. A tear slit is provided in a side edge of each packet to permit the packets to be opened to access the condom and lubrication.

Description
CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION

[0001] This application claims the benefit of U.S. Provisional Patent Application Ser. No. 60/498,363, filed Aug. 28, 2003.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0002] 1. Field of the Invention

[0003] The present invention relates to packaging, and more particularly relates to the packaging of a condom and a lubricating liquid.

[0004] 2. Description of the Related Art

[0005] The packaging of condoms with scents, flavoring and lubrications as measures to encourage safe sex practices is well known. For example, in the U.S. Pat. No. 5,175,142 issued Dec. 29, 1992 to Dervieux et al. teaches packing food quality, non-allergenic and non-toxic solid or liquid compositions for scenting elastomeric products such as condoms inside a breakable pouch within a sealed package containing the product. Prior to opening the package for use of the product the pouch is broken to release the composition into contact with the product.

[0006] In the U.S. Pat. No. 5,005,695 issued Apr. 9, 1991 to Tennefos et al. a condom caddy package is taught having a front and rear web sealed at their edges to define a package. The front web includes an elongate tongue for cooperation with an elongate groove formed in the rear web. Slits are provided within the webs above the tongue and groove arrangement to provide access to the condom within the package. The tongue and groove arrangement permits the sanitary disposal of the used condom by reinsertion into the package and resealing of the package with the tongue and groove arrangement. Tennefos et al. also teaches the use of a rupturable container secured within the package that contains a lubricating germicidal fluid for application to the condom.

[0007] U.S. Pat. No. 6,422,753 B1 issued Jul. 23, 2002 to Thomas teaches making separable beverage receptacle packaging with integral drinking spout using two differently sized sheets that are heat welded together to form a plurality of side-by-side receptacles for receiving a beverage. Perforations are provided between the receptacles to allow separation of the receptacles into individual units having a perforated tear strip for opening the unit.

[0008] U.S. Pat. No. 5,643,582 issued Jul. 1, 1997 to Gangaharan et al. teaches a vaginal lubricant which along with many other commercially available lubricants may be useful in the invention to be described.

[0009] None of the above inventions and patents, taken either singly or in combination, is seen to describe the instant invention as claimed. Thus novelty condom packaging, which enhances sexual encounters and the effectiveness of condom usage while promoting safe sex, is desired.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0010] The novelty condom packaging of the present invention provides a single package having separable sealed packets for containing a condom and a lubricant. Two sheets of foil are placed together and sealed together along side and bottom edges the sheets. An additional seal is provided parallel to the side seals and spaced a predetermined distance from one sealed side edge. The sheets as sealed thus far form a large pocket and a small pocket for receiving products. A condom is placed into the large pocket and a lubricant is placed in the small pocket. The sheets are then sealed along the top edge to form hermetically sealed condom and lubricant packets. The package is perforated down the middle of the seal between the side seals to permit the package to be separated into separate packets containing the condom and lubrication. A tear slit is provided in each side edge to permit the separated packets to be opened to access the condom and lubrication.

[0011] Accordingly, it is a principal object of the invention to provide novelty condom packaging in the form of a single package having separable sealed packets for containing a condom and a lubricant.

[0012] It is another object of the invention to provide novelty condom packaging that increases the appeal and effectiveness of using condoms, thereby promoting condom usage.

[0013] It is a further object of the invention to provide novelty condom packaging having a functional and practical design that reduces the list of things one needs to have on hand for a safe and enjoyable sexual encounter.

[0014] It is an object of the invention to provide improved elements and arrangements thereof for the purposes described which is inexpensive, dependable and fully effective in accomplishing its intended purposes.

[0015] These and other objects of the present invention will become readily apparent upon further review of the following specification and drawings.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

[0016] FIG. 1 is a front view of a novelty condom packaging according to the present invention.

[0017] FIG. 2 is a cross-sectional view of the novelty condom packaging of FIG. 1 taken along line 2-2.

Looking first at FIG. 2, wherein the package 100 is provided in the form of two sheets of foil material 101 and 102 that have been placed together and sealed together along side and bottom edges of the sheets. The package 100 is preferably 2 inches in height and 2 inches in width and made from foil materials used in conventional condom packages.

[0020] Turning now to FIG. 1, which shows the package 100 having a sealed bottom edge 103 and sealed side edges 104 and 105. An additional seal 107 is provided which extends from the top edge to the bottom edge of the package 100. Seal 107 is made parallel to the sealed side edges 104 and 105 and is spaced a predetermined distance from sealed side edge 105. Sealing is provided by conventional methods such as heat sealing, crimping and the like.

[0021] The sheets as sealed thus far form a large pocket and a small pocket for receiving products. A condom 113 is placed into the large pocket and a lubricant 114 is placed in the small pocket. The sheets are then sealed along the top edge 106 to form a sealed condom packet 111 and a sealed lubricant packet 112.

[0022] The condom and lubricant may be of any commercially available type. The condoms could be any type on the markets, i.e. varied in design to include colors, flavors, sizes, textures, and the like. The lubricant may be any commercially available vaginal lubricant. A preferred lubricant would contain purified water, benzoic acid, propylene glycol, nestosol, and methyiparaben. Additives such as Vitamin E and spermicides may be added to the lubricant.

[0023] Seal 107 of the package 100 is perforated down the from the top edge 106 to the bottom edge 103 to permit the package 100 to be separated into separate packets 111 and 112 containing the condom and lubrication, respectively. Tear slits 109 and 110 are provided in the side edges 104 and 105, respectively to permit the separated packets 111 and 112 to be opened to access the condom 113 and lubrication 114.
