You know what they say: ‘I scream, you scream, we all scream for men to feel confident with their penises just as they are.’
Or at least, that’s what one condom brand is saying. This week, Trojan is unleashing the ‘Trojan ConeC**Ktions Ice Cream Truck’ on New York City, a penis-themed ice cream truck packed with frozen treats mimicking different penis shapes and sizes.
While the novel idea is certainly meant to grab attention — and inspire some laughs — it also has the noble purpose of encouraging men to embrace their own ‘cones’ just as they are.
Trojan Brand Condoms debuted its Trojan ConeC**Ktions Ice Cream Truck this week in New York City in honor of Pride
Ding dong dips: Treats have names like Mighty Munchkin, Holy Cow, Ride the Rainbow, Off the Hook, The South Pole, and Chunky Hunky
That’s bananas! Trojan’s aim is for men to celebrate their penises no matter what they look like — even if they’re a bit crooked
The blue and white truck is very appropriately decorated with a giant, phallic banana split on top — which, naturally, features two scoops of ice cream perfectly places on either side of the base of the banana.
The sides feature PG-13 artwork of the six different treats offered on board, each of which represents a different penis shape or side.
It will also play a special jingle all about penises, set to an upbeat tune.
On the menu is the Mighty Munchkin, the micro-cone of the bunch. It’s made with a super-tiny ‘bite-size’ cake cone topped with a teeny scoop of Neapolitan ice cream.
Then there’s the Off the Hook, not ice cream but a curved, frozen banana dipped in chocolate and nuts ‘just on the tip.’
The Holy Cow comes in a waffle cone and has three heaping scoops of sweet cream ice cream, with chocolate chips and cookie dough mixed in.

Don’t bring the kids! There are also fun illustrations of each of the ice creams
Penis-positive! It comes in light of the brand’s recent survey, which found that nearly half of men (47 per cent), and 60 per cent of gay men have felt judged about their penis
The Chunky Hunky is strawberry ice cream with chocolate chunks, and the Ride the Rainbow is made with rainbow sherbet topped with fruity cereal and glitter.

Finally, The South Pole is a ‘slender serving’ of chocolate and vanilla swirl dipped in strawberry shortcake crunch, with Trojan promises is ‘D-licious.’
The motley assortment is meant to celebrate ‘cones’ of every shape and size, and to encourage men to have ‘#PrideInMine.’
‘Trojan ConC**ktions is our way of inspiring guys to take pride in their penises, whatever shape or size. We know that sexual health is an important part of overall health — and that when you’re proud of your body, you want to protect it,’ Bruce Weiss, Vice President of Marketing for Trojan, said in a press release.
It’ll tour several spots in New York City today and Saturday, and will also be at the New York Pride Parade on Sunday.
It comes in light of the brand’s recent survey, which found that nearly half of men (47 per cent), and 60 per cent of gay men have felt judged about their penis.
The survey also found that 62 per cent who say they have felt judged for their penises have engaged in sexual behavior they were not confident was safe.
