Tom of Finland Condoms
The Finnish artist Touko Laaksonen (1920-1991) became internationally famous as Tom of Finland, widely considered the most influential creator of homoerotic art. His drawings eroticized masculinity by featuring men with exaggerated attributes and overtly sexual poses. Many of his images involved police officers, S&M imagery, and/or leathermen, which made the timing of the condom release particularly meaningful.
