Beckham on Condoms 

Hot for David Beckham?

beckhamNow he can be part of your sex life – sort of.

Condoms bearing Beckham’s image may soon be sold at the gift shop of the Thyssen-Bornemisza museum in Madrid, Spain, according to the Guardian.

Packaging will be decorated with art works that’ll be on display in the museum’s Tears of Eros exhibit from late October. The exhibit will include British conceptual artist Sam Taylor-Wood’s sleeping David video, which features the professional soccer player.

Sex and Death

Tears of Eros will house 119 works and examine “the close relationship between sexual desire and the death instinct,” among other things, according to the Guardian.

The campaign involving the soccer-player clad condoms has not yet been finalized, but museum sources told Guardian that it’s well on its way. “The condom manufacturers are keen, so we are pretty sure it will happen,” says a museum spokesman.

Baroness Thyssen, a former Spanish beauty queen whose art-collector husband founded the museum, doesn’t foresee any controversy.

“I don’t see why anyone should be scandalized,” she says. “It is a way of bringing art and responsibility together.”
