In a day, I had figured out the best way to  roll into a condom,” he says. The Cinch Sak inspired Sensis’s  QuikStrips—essentially, pull tabs for condoms. It’s hard to say whether Sensis has a chance against its larger  competitors, but Thompson is game for the challenge. “We’re hoping 2011  is our year,” he says.
