DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT
With reference now to the drawings, and in particular to FIGS.
1 to 8 thereof, a new and improved condom pocket underwear embodying
the principles and concepts of the present invention and generally
designated by the reference numerals 10 and 10a will be described.
More specifically, the condom pocket underwear 10 of the instant
invention essentially comprises a torso surrounding web 11 including
an annular elastomeric waistband 12 fixedly mounted to an upper
perimeter end of the torso web 11 to provide access into the underwear
member 10. A first leg opening 13 and a second leg opening 14 are
directed through the torso web 11 demarcated by a crotch web 15.
As illustrated in FIGS. 1 and 2, the garment may be configured as
either a man's or woman's underwear garment respectively, including
a pocket member 17 mounted to the torso web 11 adjacent the waistband
defined by a pocket member cavity 18 including a condom member 19
contained therewithin. As a man's underwear garment, as illustrated
in FIG. 1, a crotch web opening flap 16 is provided. It should be
further noted that should the use of an elastomeric band 12 be utilized
individually with a plurality of waistband stocking support tethers
20, the pocket 17 may be mounted to one of the tethers such as in
the FIG. 3.
A modified aspect of the invention as illustrated in FIG. 4 and
set forth by the construction 10a includes a second pocket 21 mounted
to the torso web 11 adjacent the waistband for ease of access thereto,
wherein the second pocket 21 (see FIG. 6) is defined by a second
pocket cavity 30. The second pocket 21 is formed by a generally
"U" shaped fluid impermeable web 22 formed with a single
uppermost opening that is selectively closed by an associated zipper
opening seam 26. The zipper seam 26 includes a "V" shaped
zipper projecting seam 23 mounted to an upper first end of the opening
receivable within a "V" shaped zipper cavity 24 that is
coextensive therewith. The "V" shaped zipper projecting
seam 23 is formed with projecting seam tip 25 (see FIG. 9) that
may be formed in a manner as set forth in the FIG. 9 for the selective
piercing of a tube member 27 positioned and fixedly mounted within
an apex of the "V" shaped cavity 24. The tube member 27
is filled with a germicidal fluid 28 for distribution upon a condom
member that is subsequently placed within the second pocket 21.
The tube member 27 is positioned above a distribution conduit 29
in fluid communication with the tube member 27 and the underlying
second pocket cavity 30 to deposit the germicidal fluid 28 within
the cavity 30 and an associated condom member positioned therewithin
upon projection of the seam tip 25 into the tube member 27 forcing
the germicidal fluid 28 through the distribution conduit 29 and
into the second pocket cavity 30 for a sanitary disposing of the
condom member 19.
It should be noted that the second pocket 21 may be opened and
its contents emptied and washed in a conventional manner for the
sanitizing of the pocket for subsequent use, wherein a replacement
tube member 27 and associated germicidal fluid 28 contained therewithin
may be readhered within the apex of the "V" shaped cavity
As to the manner of usage and operation of the instant invention,
the same should be apparent from the above disclosure, and accordingly
no further discussion relative to the manner of usage and operation
of the instant invention shall be provided.
With respect to the above description then, it is to be realized
