So I was surfing some condoms sites to check out what other options are out there (I love experimenting XD!), and I discovered that ONE condoms is holding a design contest. Now, I love art and I love art contests. So duh, I would LOVE to enter. Too, the winner gets to donate 5000 condoms to a charity of their choice (how amazing is that!). Thing is, I'm a little worried what my parents would think if I won. Like honestly, I have no problem with being known for designing a condom package. In fact, I think condoms are fabulous. My parents happen to be a little conservative though. They do know I'm having sex, but they're not supportive of it at all.

Any advice? Should I enter and just see what happens? And IF (it's a huge if) I win, how would I bring this up with my parents? ("By the way, I've designed a condom wrapper and now am getting a years supply of condoms plus donating a bunch to a charity" doesn't seem like the best way to put it....)

(I hope this isn't too silly... It would be no problem if I weren't living at home, being fully financially supported by my parents.)

This sounds like something that you are really excited about doing. First of all, I think I would want to take things one step at a time, and first enter and see what happens. Don't need to add more stress than needed! When it comes facing your parents, just let them know you won the competition like you would about any art contest. Of course, you're going to have to discuss that it's for condoms, and this may be awkward, but ultimately, this is about doing something you say to love (maybe not condom art, but just art in general). Good luck!
