Skyn Condoms Invites You to Skip Ads … But Not Foreplay (NSFWFH)

Porn icons Stoya and Dale Cooper work up a sweat

Most young dudes learn about sex from watching porn. And that's … bad?

Of course it is. It leads guys to view sex as a mechanical, purely physical endeavor. The desire to please others and connect on a deeper level gets tossed away like a used you-know-what.

Porn stars Stoya and Dale Cooper are having none of that—though they're getting some with their respective partners—in these steamy, sensuous NSFWFH spots from Skyn and Sid Lee Paris:

"You can skip an ad, but don't skip foreplay," the stars inform us at the, um, climax of the ads, shot late last year, before the pandemic erupted.

Since young men receive much of their erotic "instruction" from porn, Sid Lee drafted X-rated icons to deliver its message, posting the :45s as pre-rolls on PornHub, of course.

"All sex education cannot be thrown on porn, but at the same time, porn could play a bigger role—instead of just focusing on penetration," Cooper says.

What's more, Skyn puts a fresh twist on condom how-to's with a leaflet of foreplay instructions, inviting folks to share their techniques using the hashtag #dontskipforeplay.

Now, for some elusive reason that may take years of painstaking, scientifically rigorous sociological study to fully fathom, porn- and sex-related stuff has grown really popular in lockdown.

Trojan recently unzipped a DM contest via 72andSunny with free lube and vibrators as prizes. And with March sales for its Womanizer toys rising 263 percent, Wow Tech Group engaged The Garden for billboards popping up around Canada:
