Flavoured condoms aren’t anything new. But whether you’d like to try something fruity or savoury, we can promise you that eggplant-flavoured condoms will ruin the mood–no matter how much of an open mind you have.

So imagine how shocked everyone was when Durex announced this:

And while the world was quick to assume that Durex lost its mind, there was an deeper issue that the condom company was trying to point out.

That’s right. There’s an emoji for practically everything, including phallic-looking objects that were clearly made for the purpose of sexting (*cough* mushroom and eggplant *cough*). And yet, there’s no condom emoji. So how on earth can we be expected to practice safe sexting (or promote safe sex) when we’re deprived of our cute, cartoonish resources?

“Emojis are a crucial part of how young couples connect and research suggests that the creation of official safe sex emojis are vital to inserting messages around protection into their sexual conversations,” said Durex.

We may not want eggplant-flavoured condoms, but a condom emoji? Now that’s something we could use.
