We get asked a lot, "Why Maude?"
Reason no. 1
"maude" means strength in battle.
Reason no. 2
The name "maude" is actually a nod to the golden age of condoms – which was only a golden age in that the packaging was beautiful and the names were interesting. Otherwise, it was a tough time for condoms and anything considered "obscene" thanks to the Comstock Laws. Flying under the radar, these brands promoted safe sex subversively.
Reason no. 3
Maude was also a trailblazer for reproductive rights, civil rights and racial and gender equality ("and then there's Maude").
