Booths dispense pictures and condoms

Smile, you’re on condom camera.

In an updated version of the photo booth, the LifeStyles condom company is poised to bring New York nightclubs the “Makeout Booth,” which dispenses pictures and prophylactics.

“Condom-dispensing machines have always been a nightlife fixture,” said LifeStyles spokeswoman Carol Carrozza. “LifeStyles is essentially combining the concept of a condom dispenser with a black-and-white photo booth as a playful means to promote safe sex.”

The machines are expected to be unveiled Thursday at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

Carrozza said the company is organizing an upcoming sampling tour of the booths at a dozen Manhattan hot spots.

“I would imagine by early February, certainly by Valentine’s Day, you’ll see them,” Carrozza said.

She said the contraptions – with the throwback flimsy curtain to provide booth privacy – are not meant to be a convenient pit stop for a quickie.“We don’t mind a little snuggling and that kind of thing, but there won’t be too much more going on right there,” Carrozza said.
