Project Condom

What is Project Condom?

Sponsored by Global Protection and ONE Condoms, Project Condom (opens in a new tab) is a merge of art and fashion while promoting safer sex behaviors for college-aged students. Based on the tv show Project Runway, teams of students will have the opportunity to create and showcase garments made entirely of condoms!

Project Condom Season 6: "Sex is...Timeless"

  • April 12, 2022 | Solarium PSU | 6:30 pm
Theme Description

From the refined and modest appearances of the Victorian Era (Bridgerton Diamonds) to the flappers of the 1920's; from the hippies and the sexual freedom movement of the 60's to sex positive podcasts, books, and TV shows. Sex is timeless and has been happening for hundreds of years, but how we talk about sex, sex positivity, and gender roles has shifted over time, and we hope to see those changes and eras reflected in your costume!

Team applications are open on the Wellness and PRevention Engage page until March 3rd at 5:00pm. 

Please contact Kyra Patel with any questions that you may have.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you make a garment?

Teams typically use fabric, sewing materials, and glue to construct their garments. Old clothes (dresses, t-shirts, shorts, etc.) may act as the base for the garment. Teams may paint condoms as they see fit. As we only supply the condoms, additional materials needed to construct the garment will need to be purchased by the designers.

Who supplies the condoms?

Wellness & Prevention Services will provide unwrapped, non-lubricated, colored male/external condoms donated by ONE Condom Company.

Why do I need a theme?

The purpose of Project Condom is to raise awareness about safer sexual health behaviors and issues and to decrease the stigma associated in an innovative way. While we hope that this event is fun and intriguing, it is important that each garment embodies an educational message for the program attendees.

Can I design a garment with other people?

YES! We strongly encourage collaboration among students to create garments for the event. This year, each team will consist of people already living together (including the model) . This can be roommates, suitemates, or housemates. Garments should be sponsored by a club, organization, fraternity, sorority, center, or class.

Does the model have to be a woman?

NO! Anyone is welcome to model a garment.

How will designers be recognized?

You will be asked to submit phots of your costume on the model. Images will be posted on social media and on our website.

How will winners be recognized?

The public will vote on garments based on creativity, connection to the event theme, sexual health message, design, and stage presence. Winners will receive a prize pack from ONE Condom Company. In addition, we will have a public vote this year!
