LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As Americans collectively prepare for self-quarantine, shelter-in-place and social distancing due to the coronavirus pandemic, toilet paper and water bottles aren’t the only essentials flying off store shelves – condoms are also in high demand. With many retail stores sold out of condoms, Promescent, a leading manufacturer of premium sexual wellness items, is committing 250,000 free condoms to support increased intimacy during COVID-19 isolation.
“In times of uncertainty and isolation, it’s natural to seek physical and emotional intimacy,” says Promescent CEO Jeff Abram. “In fact, we’ve seen a 54 percent increase in our online sales since the beginning of the pandemic. With the tremendous effort put forth by so many government and local organizations, we want to do our part to ensure people are continuing to practice safe sex and have adequate access to birth control in a time of social distancing and self-isolation.”
To promote social distancing and limit shopping trips to the store or gas station, Promescent will be shipping 250,000 free condoms discreetly to shoppers over the next few weeks. Simply visit www.promescent.com to add Premium Ribbed, Premium Ultra Thin, or Premium Variety Pack condoms to your cart at no charge. Promescent is limiting orders to one 4-pack of condoms per customer.
“Sex is a great way to relieve potential anxiety, so the combination of physical proximity to one’s partner for any extended period would lead to more intimacy, especially early on in this type of unfamiliar environment,” adds leading clinical sex therapist Dr. Ian Kerner, who expects sexual wellness items to be in increased demand throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
