Durex petitions the Unicode Consortium for a condom emoji11
By adding the condom emoji, and focusing on teens, Durex says that it will "empower them to talk openly about protection." The condom manufacturer says that talking openly about sex "is vital to prevent STIs, HIV and AIDS."
We could know pretty soon whether Durex will get its wish. This week, the Unicode Consortium has a meeting at Adobe Systems' offices in San Jose, and a decision could be announced shortly afterward.
Durex posted a video to YouTube showing the open text message it sent to Unicode. Check it out by clicking on the video below.
