The ultimate stocking stuffers? Happy Christmas from Durex and their Santa Stocking!

By Aisling | December 6 2012 | 20 Comments

Rarely – and by rarely I mean never before – have I received something in the post that’s made me laugh so much.

I thought the delivery man was giving me funny and meaningful eye to eye contact as I signed for the box at the door.

“Ooooh someone’s sent me a Christmas stocking packed with goodies – how lovely!”  I thought, opening the box and upended the stocking to send a multitude of… treats rolling across the kitchen table.


“Wha’?” I thought.  And then I took a closer look at the stocking.  A specially made Durex stocking embroidered with the name.  I absolutely howled.

Packed it was, choc a bloc, with all manner of Tingles and Plays and other brightly coloured Durex merchandise.  And you know – they would make great stocking stuffers!  Once you’re not planning on giving them to your granny or anything.

Now the funny thing is I HAVE actually reviewed Durex Tingle before – years ago and Ray Darcy read about it on the radio, leading to me becoming some kind of sexpert, as men with previously unsatisfied girlfriends around the country took it upon themselves to email me and thank me for this review and the happiness it had brought into their lives.  I was horrified by this new role I found myself in and as I never replied to anyone, my er guru status in the Tingle area quickly petered out.

But yis lot know what you voted as your favourite body gadget in the 2012 Awards don’t you?  And we all know a good ride is the best way to bring a healthy flush to the cheeks – why else did Nars name their bestselling blusher Orgasm?

Why not share some seasonal cheer?  Have yourself a merry little Christmas indeed!

    I think I’m officially in love with the marketing department in Durex now.

    Wow… hilarious! Although I have to admit that they made a nice effort :-D
    I think that the stocking actually looks cute! Hahaha though I don’t know if I’ll give this to my boyrfriend / or friends in need any time soon :-D :-D

    Will you be reviewing this lot for us Aisling ;0

  • Belle says:

    Nice haul there!! Stuff like this is great as a stocking filler or joke present for the other half! I also want to get ‘fundies’ as a present!! Have to say though I don’t really get why people squirm away from this kind of thing! If you’re already sleeping with your boyfriend what’s the issue of giving him these kind of fun gifts or trying them out!!

  • LynnieDoll says:

    Not to be sniffed at Aisling – that’s an expensive stocking you got there. Durex stuff ain’t cheap.
    And how cute – they even went to the trouble of personalising it for you.

  • thefrog says:

    I really hope whoever is responsible for this in their marketing department will get a bonus this year. The embroidery is so nice and ‘thoughtful’.

    And Belle, I agree with you. I’m all for normalising (or even, dare we “render it fun”) safe sex. It’s been some time since I’ve seen campaigns on this (I can only remember one on Belgian TV 4 years ago, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen one on French TV, not to mention Irish one), and this stocking would be the perfect starter for a Christmas one.
