You probably know us best because we’re the condoms with the colorful round wrappers. Maybe you’ve seen ONE® Condoms at your local drugstore or picked us up at your college health center, but trust us, we’re much more than meets the eye.
We’re ONE® Condoms and we take pride in doing things a little differently than other condom brands.
In 2004, we launched ONE® Condoms, which quickly emerged as an industry leader in premium-branded condoms and lubes. ONE® was a culmination of everything our founder, Davin Wedel, had learned about the condom industry after 20+ years of running Global Protection Corp., ONE®’s parent company, which he founded in his dorm room at Tufts University in the late ‘80s. Davin founded Global Protection Corp. (and later ONE®) as a direct response to the AIDS crisis and the lack of discussion surrounding condom use. The challenge: how to make condoms cool and something people want to wear and talk about?
Fast forward to today, with STI rates on the rise and condom use on the decline, that is still the challenge we’re facing and is still at the crux of everything we do.
The One Family
We currently have 15 condom styles and 3 different lubes under the ONE® brand. We like to say ‘there’s ONE for everyone’ and that is very much pun-intended. Whether you’re looking for thin, studded, flavored, combo-packs, or even glow-in-the-dark condoms, we have it all. Fun fact: our parent company actually invented the first glow-in-the-dark condom, but that’s a story for another day.
Our condoms check off all the health-conscious boxes: they are made from natural rubber latex, are vegan-friendly, non-GMO, gluten-free, lubricated with premium silicone lubricant, and are free of any parabens, glycerin, spermicide, and fragrances. Our flavored, colored, and glow-in-the-dark condoms are all formulated to be completely safe for intercourse.
Here’s a preview of some of our rockstars:
- The ONE® Mixed Pleasures™ adventure pack is the perfect introduction to ONE® Condoms; it comes with all of our most popular styles and it’s the best way to try them all. We call it an adventure pack because it’s guaranteed to add a new level of excitement to your evening (or afternoon delight).
- Vanish® Hyperthin®, is one of our most popular condom styles and for good reason, it’s 30% thinner than our standard condom and lubricated with our Move® lubricant for gliding comfort. And we have the results to back it up: in a blind performance test with frequent condom users, 70% preferred Vanish over the leading ultra-thin condom.
- Our most popular lubricant is Move®, a silicone-based lubricant that is great for super long-lasting sex, and some customers report they love it for anal. You can also put it under your sled in the winter to make it go faster.
- ONE® UltraFeel™ is one of our newest styles and most innovative. It features our thinnest condom so far (even thinner than the Vanish we mentioned above) and an attached 2 ml lube packet for added comfort.
- We also launched a line of condoms with 60 different sizes, called myONE® Condoms to help solve the problem that many people face: condoms don’t fit right and are uncomfortable. So if you’ve ever experienced squeezing or slippage with standard condoms, give myONE’s sample kit a try.
One and the Community
One of the things at the core of our brand that really differentiates us from the other major condom brands is our focus on our community. We’re one of the leading suppliers of safer sex products to universities, non-profits, and health organizations. We also have two major programs that really help us connect with both our customers and the global community.
Our Momentum™ loyalty program connects us directly to our fans: members complete challenges, earn points, and can redeem those points for free products from our online store. It’s mutually beneficial because it gives us direct access to our fans for feedback, ideas, and to hear from them about their wants and needs. You can learn more and sign-up here.
As we mentioned before, we might be best known for our colorful artistic wrappers and several times a year we offer the public an opportunity to add artwork to our collection of designs through the ONE® Design Contests. Participants have the chance to win cash prizes, a year’s supply of condoms with their artwork on them, an artist profile on the ONE® website, and a condom donation to an organization of their choice. Even after all these years, it still feels like Christmas morning every time we get a new batch of condom designs. You can check out the ONE® Gallery to see all our designs.
2020 has definitely been a weird year, but it certainly hasn’t slowed us down, because we have big plans for the future and we’re ready to make a splash.
We’ve spent the better part of the last year working on a brand refresh that we’re really excited about. On top of a totally new look and feel, we’re also moving towards more sustainable packaging by using recycled materials and having the packages themselves be recyclable.
We have some new products coming out in the next couple of years that we think have the potential to be game-changers, pushing the whole industry forward. We can’t say too much yet, but just keep an eye out for some big announcements.
We’re growing and expanding to countries all over the world, with ONE® now being available in Canada, Malaysia, Singapore, United Kingdom, Portugal, Hong Kong, and Thailand. We’re not just growing the availability of our condoms, but we’re building relationships in these countries to make a positive impact in the communities we’re serving. Just recently, we completed the submission phase for our Canada-themed design contest, which will ultimately result in about 100,000 condoms being donated to Canadian health organizations.
