The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health wants to know what image of the City of Angels gets you in the mood. The artwork of ten lucky Angelenos will be chosen to appear on 1 million and one condom wrappers in the Health Department’s new “L.A.’s Next Sex Symbol” contest - with the goal of promoting safe sex and reducing new incidences of HIV in the Southland. Images of sports teams and city landmarks like the Hollywood Sign are prohibited… but who wants to see a picture of The Staples Center in the heat of the moment, anyway? What image might you submit to appear on a condom wrapper?

WEIGH IN:

What image might you submit to appear on a condom wrapper?
