At first glance and perhaps second and third this condom wrapper looks like it reads, "Go Further Without Consent," which is absolutely horrible. But the wrapper actually turned out to be a case of god-awful graphic design. You see, the donut is meant to be a punny way of saying "Do not" like, do-nut.
