Man with rubber fetish keeps the hits coming: Would it surprise you to learn that the world’s leading condom designer is Indian?
Dr. Alla Venkata Krishna Reddy is the designer of at least three successful specialty condoms (the Pleasure Plus, the Inspiral and the Trojan Twisted Pleasure) and one female condom (the V-Amour). The tragedy of his head-onistic genius is that he’s completely wrapped up in I. Pee litigation (via Boing Boing). He’s getting shafted by his own patents — it’s autolitigious stimulation.
Reddy’s great contribution to the universe of condom design… [was that] Reddy viewed them as devices that could help enhance male pleasure…
… Reddy’s first condom company failed in the mid-’90s and he lost control of his patents in a bankruptcy auction… He returned to his native India and continued to tweak his innovative designs, and with the help of partners in the United States, soon reentered the American market, first with the Inspiral, and then with the [Trojan] Twisted Pleasure… So, tragically, Reddy is being sued for violating his own patents.

p>Randy Reddy [was] dubbed the ‘Leonardo’ of condomsReddy started with a condom with a pouch at the end, progressing to an unholy spiral and then two in the latest incarnation. It’s like Gillette razors, pretty soon there’ll be five spirals with built-in vibration They’ve sold well and won awards from such paragons of hard news as Cosmo, Men’s Health and Maxim:
“When I rolled it on, my penis looked like Marvin the Martian,” says a staffer. “But when I took a look in the middle of things, the extra fabric had twisted itself into a pinwheel shape. It actually lives up to its name…” [Link]

p>(NSFW after the jump)
p>Despite all the backslapping, he didn’t get cocky. Although Reddy didn’t nail the business side of things with his first design, he turned over a fresh wrapper by licensing to the biggest, Trojan. His ex-business partner, a former accountant, was feeling his oats. In a tort-ish mood, again he sued.
p>The same judge who ruled in favor of Reddy the first time is presiding over the Twisted Pleasure case. The judge has gotta love that docket. I’m sure he’s demanding free samples so he gets some first-hand experience. It’s vital before the briefs are dropped off and the orgal arguments begin. As for Dr. Reddy, his wife and three sons, I’ve got just three words for you:
p>Coolest… uncle… ever.
p>I wonder how conversations go at their kitty parties:
p>AUNTIE NO. 1: ‘So, vat does your husband do?’
p>SAROJINI AUNTIE: ‘Umm… plastics.’
p>Oh yes, there will be pictures:
