Leading Condom Brand Launches Customized Keyboard Across Top Mobile Platforms
30 November 2015 - Iselin, NJ – Ansell, a global leader in protection solutions and the makers of LifeStyles® and SKYN® Condoms (“SKYN”), today announced the launch of the LifeStyles Keyboard, an emoji keyboard created with “sexting” in mind. According to the recent 2015 SKYN® Condoms Millennial Sex Survey, 57% of millennials reported having “sexted,” with 7% “sexting” daily and 11% “sexting” several times per week. Full of amusing, tongue-in-cheek emojis, stickers and GIFs, the LifeStyles Keyboard will help consumers take their “sexting” to the next level.
The LifeStyles Keyboard is a custom-branded keyboard application broken down into four categories: people, places, things, and phrases. Featuring sexy, entertaining and safe sex-promoting imagery including condoms, lingerie, roleplaying scenarios, locations for sex and more, the app offers a playful way for users to connect with current and potential partners. There are two components to the content: a self-contained LifeStyles branded keyboard application available for download on iPhones (iOS) and Android (Google), and a custom sticker pack featuring 15 pieces distributed across one of the largest mobile messaging applications, Kik.
“The LifeStyles Keyboard is a lighthearted way to bring the message of safe sex into the conversations millennials are already having,” says Jeyan Heper, President & General Manager, Sexual Wellness Global Business Unit at Ansell, the makers of LifeStyles and SKYN Condoms. “The keyboard will give millennials the opportunity to connect and have fun while also promoting safe sex through the content offered.”
The LifeStyles Keyboard is now available for download at no cost in the iOS App Store and Google Play Store. The keyboard will allow users to share unique content across multiple platforms including Mail, iMessage, Facebook, WhatsApp, and other third party messaging apps.
